Getting a laptop
Look at what I’m gettin! It’s a HP Pavilion dv2017 and it hasn’t even hit the stores yet.
For a couple of months now I’ve been pondering over what kind of laptop I should get; a Mac or a PC? After loads of back and forward, pros and cons lists, I had to realise that the only positive thing about a Mac was that it looked prettier and that it had a better battery life. For me, looks is important but not a deciding factor. With a PC I could get 1024Mb of RAM for $1250, while with a Mac I could only get 512Mb RAM for $1500.
So I ended up with this HP Pavilion notebook. I don’t think that the version I’m getting is available all over the world. If it is, then it goes under another name. It’s a part of the dv2000 series, and here are some specs that made me like it:
- 100GB Hardisk
- 1024MB RAM
- Integrated webcam (…)
- HP QuickPlay: watch movies and listen to music without booting up
- 2.4kg and 14.1″ screen – not too big, not too small
Now I just have to wait for it to arrive in the shops. Earliest date is 30th of September!
By the way, I’m not dead, I’m just really busy with school. I’m starting to have second thoughts about this blog, but I can’t get rid of it since it’s the only place where I can ramble on about my tech obsession!…
