There are many good producers of laptops in the world, and HP is among the best ones. The full name of this company is Hewlett Packard, and it was founded many years ago, back in 1939, in Palo Alto, California, United States of America. Its founders were Bill Hewlett and David Packard, so now you know where the name comes from. Today the company still has the headquarters in Palo Alto, but it operates in many other countries all over the world. It had expanded so much that these days it is the largest information technology company in the world and also the best vendor of personal computers in the world. It is present in almost each country, and has around 310,000 employees. It makes billions of dollars of profit each year, so you can definitely trust this brand when buying a HP product.
And speaking of products, there are many products made or sold by this company, such as: Computer Monitors, Digital Cameras, Enterprise Software, Indigo Digital Press, Mobile Phones, Networking, Personal Computers and Laptops, Personal Digital Assistants, Printers, Scanners, Servers, Storage, Televisions and others. Since the company is so developed and present all over the world, you can buy the HP products from many stores. One of them, that offers some of the best prices on HP laptops is Best Buy. This is a major retail store from the United States of America (and some other countries) that sells all sorts of electronic devices, including notebooks.
You can find 25 different models of HP laptops on the site of Best Buy, with prices ranging from 400 dollars for the cheapest model to 1,799 dollars for the most expensive one. For today we won't discuss about a really expensive laptop, and not about a really cheap one…we'll chose one from the middle. Let's choose for example the HP - Pavilion Laptop with Intel ® Core ™ i3 Processor – Black, Model: dv 4-2155 dx | SKU: 9707468 which has a price of 749 dollars. So this is not a really powerful high end laptop, but is not a cheap and weak one either. It is a good laptop, one that offers good features for most of the users.
Its processor is a Intel ® Core ™ i3-330 M processor that features a 3 MB L3 cache and 2.13 GHz processor speed. The RAM memory is very good too, offering you 4 GB DDR 3 memory for multitasking power, that can be expandable to 8GB. The optical drive is quite good too and it is a multiformat DVD ± RW/ CD-RW drive with double layer support, that can record up to 8.5 GB of data. The display screen of this laptop is a 14.1" WXGA high definition widescreen display with BrightView technology and a 1280 x 800 resolution. So the video quality will be quite good, and you can even play complex video games or watch movies in High Definition on this laptop.
Its hard drive offers plenty of free space for most of the simple home users, and it has 320 GB of disc space (7200 rpm). The graphics engine is an Intel® HD graphics that features up to 1696 MB total available video memory for lush images. And this laptop even has a HDMI port, so in case you are not happy with the 14 inch screen, you can connect it to a large High Definition TV, and watch movies at a better quality. And like most of the other laptops made these days it also has a built in webcam, a 5 in 1 media reader (that supports Secure Digital, MultiMediaCard, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO and xD-Picture Card formats) and both wireless and Ethernet connectivity for easy access to the internet. Besides the HDMI port that we mentioned before it also has most of the ports you might need, including 2 USB ports, audio ports, a VGA port and others. It is quite a portable laptop, with a weight of 5.2 lbs and it measures 1.6 inch thin. Its battery such as Hp Pavilion dv2000 battery, Hp F4486B battery and Hp CGR-B1870AE battery can last for about 3 hours and 30 minutes which is good, and it even comes with an installed version of the Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64 bit. And of course it's also Energy Star Qualified.
So after all it is a really good laptop, one that can be included at the "premium laptops" category, and it is not so expensive either. So if you want to find the best price on a HP laptop, just make a visit to the closest Best Buy store (or visit the Best Buy's website).
