Best Buy is selling the HP G62-407DX notebook this week for $379.99 as part of a collection of President’s Day deals on laptops and netbooks. The HP G62-407DX is similar to many of the Black Friday notebooks we saw last year and at $380 you might think you’ve gone back to Black Friday.

HP G62-407DX Quick Specs:

The HP G62-407DX has a 15.6″ display with a 1366×768 resolution and comes with a 2.6GHz  dual core AMD Phenom II processor, 3GB RAM and a 320GB hard drive. The graphics on this laptop are able to support some gaming thanks to the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 GPU. The notebook has a built in webcam, microphone and B/G/N wireless.

What can the HP G62-407DX Handle?

The G62-407DX is suitable for web browsing as well as watching HD movies either through Netflix and YouTube or on a DVD with the buitl in DVD drive. The laptop can also support some gaming, though you won’t be playing the latest Call of Duty on it.

In addition to the relaxing and entertaining capabilities this notebook can also handle the tasks of a home office or for a student that needs to type papers and use other productivity apps.

HP G62-407DX Build Quality:

The HP G62 series is a budget line and you will find similar looking notebooks at other stores, but this configuration can only be found at Best Buy. The G62 series have a nice finish that gives the notebook a great look and a nice feel when you hold it. These notebooks aren’t going to meet the durability found on high end laptops, but traditionally the G62 series have a very solid feel that should be more than enough for home users.
