(Page 1 of 4 )
Today we will review two more laptops you may want to check out before you decide on a final purchase for your back to school or work needs. Both of today’s offerings come from Hewlett-Packard. We will begin with the less expensive HP Pavilion dv3-2155mx and end with the pricier HP TouchSmart tx2-1275dx.
HP Pavilion dv3-2155mx
The HP Pavilion dv3-2155mx is a laptop from Hewlett-Packard that adds a bit of external flair with internal substance. A younger demographic will enjoy its design complete with tattoo-like shapes that cover much of its exterior. The HP Pavilion dv3-2155mx is ideal for movie buffs and is HD-friendly, as its display's 16:9 aspect ratio comes in handy when you want to pop in a DVD and get the optimal viewing experience. Add in an excellent battery life that won't leave you out in the cold while in class or on the road, and the HP Pavilion dv3-2155mx is a device that deserves a hard look when shopping for your next laptop.
Unfortunately, the HP Pavilion dv3-2155mx is a fixed configuration laptop, unlike many Dell models, so what you see is what you get. The HP Pavilion dv3-2155mx is currently available at a retail price of $729. It comes with a standard one year parts and labor warranty that includes 24/7 support via telephone or online chat.
The dv3-2155mx comes installed with the Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit operating system. The dv3-2155mx's speed and performance is satisfactory when compared to other laptops in its class thanks to its 2.1 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T6500 processor and 4 GB of DDR2 SDRAM for multitasking power. It also comes with a 500GB SATA 5400 RPM hard drive, which offers more than enough storage for most people's needs unless you have your own black market DVD and CD factory at home.
You can run some games on the laptop, as it uses an integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD card. The integrated Altec Lansing speakers produce good sound as well for enjoying music or movies without the need for headphones, although the sound will obviously be better with them on. There is also built-in 802.11b/g Wi-Fi or 10/100Base-T Ethernet LAN if you prefer a wired Internet connection.
It is disappointing that the faster 802.11n Wi-Fi and that Gigabit Ethernet are not available, as these are options that are usually present in most laptops nowadays. Bluetooth is also absent.
