Budget Notebook with All the Frills
When it comes to school notebooks, netbooks are increasingly being seen as too minimalist to be a full partner in education. HP’s G62T goes in the opposite direction with just about everything needed to teach K-12 students. The system can be powered by a variety of Intel processors, including Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, holds up to 4GB of RAM and has a 15.6 display. It’s got a SuperMulti DVD drive and both wired and wireless networking. Pricing starts at $600 with a 1-year warranty.
