The G62 doesn’t exactly set the heart racing when you first clap eyes on it. Nevertheless, unlike Toshiba’s Satellite Pro C660, the chassis does feel very solid. We reckon it’ll stand up to some long-term abuse. Also, although the matte finish is drab, it’s less likely than some other finishes to show up scratches. Rather than opting for a keyboard with isolated keys, as seen on Apple’s MacBooks, HP has instead gone with a more traditional set-up. Still, the keys are flat and have a raised centre, so they feel similar to those on an isolated keyboard when you’re tapping away on them. We’d prefer the keys if they had slightly more travel to them, though.
The HP G62 is difficult to get excited about. It’s not a bad laptop but, compared to some of its slightly cheaper rivals, it comes off second best.
