The HP 242 G1 (E7M10PA) sports a 14-inch HD LED backlit display with a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. The matte anti glare finish on the top protects your eyes from harmful rays and provides clear visibility even under the sun. 

On the inside, the HP 242 G1 (E7M10PA) is equipped with a 2.4GHz Intel Core i3 processor from the third generation and based on HM77 Express chipset. It is assisted by a regular 4GB DDR3 RAM which runs at 1,600MHz and is further expandable up to 16GB via two DIMM slots. It is devoid of any user friendly OS.

The laptop sips the required amount of juice from a 4 cell Li-ion battery. On the connectivity front, it gets options like Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI out, WLAN, digital media reader, Bluetooth v4.0 and one USB 2.0 slot.


The HP 242 G1 (E7M10PA) is apt for youngsters who aren't willing to spend much but want a laptop mainly for gaming. It sports pretty decent specs in every department but lacks any user friendly OS.
