Without much fanfare, HP has put up the new G62t laptop for sale on its Website. For $599.99, you get a system with a new Intel Core i3-330M processor, 3GB of DDR3 RAM, 160GB hard drive, DVD burner, 15.6-inch LED-backlit display, and Windows 7 Home Premium. You can upgrade it all the way up to a Core i7-620M CPU, 4GB of memory, 500GB hard drive, and a Blu-ray reader/DVD writer combo drive, though maybe you want a different laptop if you're going to all that trouble. Regardless, you're stuck with Intel's integrated graphics no matter the configuration.

Then again, the G62t looks less like a typical HP laptop—as Engadget points out, it resembles the HP Envy instead. And at half the price, it might be a good deal if you can live with the more pedestrian specs.
