This HP 625 from the very well know name of Hewlett Packard Is a hard case, compact ,stylish notebook, this was my brothers laptop and he used it only for business and found it to be of great use. I on the other hand used it for entertainment, Internet, emailing, and gaming only.
It's compact size being only W - 37.2 cm, D - 25 cm, H - 2.8 cm. This makes it small enough to take onto an air plain, this is what I used it for before I got an iPad. Most airlines allow you to bring one of theses on as well as your hand luggage as it only weighs 2.5 Kg. I would use it for watching DVDs something it does quite well using the built in DVD, CD drive. It can play DVD + R, DVD + RW and also DVD + R DL. This means you can record DVDs of your favourite shows or movies and watch them on the plane rather than what they have available using the earphone jack. The screen is nice and bright but on as bright as others I've owned, and does suffer from angle problems. If you're not sitting directly in front of the screen it can look dull or even dark. The screen is a good size at 15.6 inches and is the soft type of TFT screen.
It's easy enough to clean all you need to do is use the damp wipes available for use on theses screens and TVs. Movies are displayed in wide screen mode 16.9 with as reasonable resolution of 1366 x 768. This good screen size make Internet browsing more enjoyable than smaller sizes, the small print at the bottom of the pages is much easier to read. The sound through the speakers isn't great, but I have yet to own a laptop that has good sound. I recommend always using headphones when listening to music or watching movies. There is a HDMI connector on the back which I was surprised to see even iPads don't have this. So its very simple to connect to a large screen high definition television to view photos or more. This can be done by connecting a USB devise to the notebook into one of it's three slots, that's if your TV doesn't already have one.
This was a great laptop for using for simple tasks such as email, Internet, burning disks and watching DVDs and listening to CDs. There is a lot more this can be used for as I have used it for planing occasions, and also for writing medical projects for school. These turned out great, with well spaced out headings, side notes, and professional formatting. The results were wonderful, and it was as simple as could be linking and printing.
For all your needs this computer will do the job. It's more than capable at doing the harder tasks, that a computer may be set . And takes the everyday tasks in it's stride.
