Compaq has announced that it has a new notebook computer that is now available that offers a full size notebook screen at a price more like you expect for a netbook. The notebook is called the Compaq Presario CQ62Z and it has a 15.6-inch screen.
The machine uses an AMD V-Series V120 CPU at 2.2GHz in low end models but has several options all the way up to three-core Phenom II parts. Storage options range from 250GB up to 500GB with 5400 rpm and 7200 rpm options available.
The notebook has 2GB of RAM and can be fitted with up to 4GB of RAM on the high end. Graphics options include ATI HD 4250 on the low end and HD545v on the high end. Other options include Blu-ray players and DVD burners. You can bet fully loaded notebooks will cost much more than the starting price.
