Affordable laptop with decent specs
Display and Design
The HP 240 G2 (K1V41PA) features a 14-inch HD BrightView Wide Screen LED backlit display which offers extra brightness and a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. It has a weight of 2.2kg and is wrapped in a black coloured outfit which looks good with the soft finish.
Configuration and OS
At the heart of the HP 240 G2 (K1V41PA), there is a 2.1GHz Intel Pentium quad-core N3530 processor belonging to the fourth generation family. Assisting it is a 4GB DDR3 RAM which operates at 1,333MHz and is further expandable up to 8GB via two DIMM slots. Rich videos and games are managed by the integrated Intel HD GPU. It sails on latest 64 bit Windows 8.1 OS to render intuitive user experience.
Camera and Storage
Armed with a HP TrueVision HD webcam and single digital microphone, the HP 240 G2 (K1V41PA) can deal with high resolution video calls free of noise. The 500GB SATA hard disk operating at 5,400rpm provides sufficient space for creating a library of files. It also sports a SuperMulti DVD RW Drive with dual layer support so that you can easily transfer files through disks.
Battery and Connectivity
Keeping the HP 240 G2 (K1V41PA) juiced up for a decent period of time is a 4 cell Li-ion battery. On the connectivity front, the machine is loaded with options like VGA port, one USB 3.0 slots, two USB 2.0 slots, digital media reader, HDMI out, WLAN, Bluetooth v4.0 and Ethernet port.
The HP 240 G2 (K1V41PA) is a moderately crafted laptop which is nothing abnormal in light of its affordable price tag. The presence of latest Windows OS is quite surprising considering its price. It gets a powerful optical drive as well but misses a good processor.
