HP's been pushing out laptops like it's going out of style, but for some reason or another, the G42t never seemed to make it into any of the outfit's recent press releases. No matter, as the aforesaid machine has just surfaced on the company's website, and it's not only for sale, it's available for customization. Users can equip the 14-inch laptop with a Core i3 or i5 processor, up to 4GB of DDR3 memory, a hard drive ranging from 250GB to 640GB, integrated Intel graphics, a 1,366 x 768 resolution panel and a built-in webcam. There's also WiFi, optional Bluetooth, a SuperMulti DVD burner (or a Blu-ray drive, if you'd prefer), 6-cell Li-ion battery and plenty of bloatware to keep you busy right out of the box. Best of all, this guy gets going at just $549.99, so there's at least a slim chance you won't shatter the bank while indulging yourself.
