HP dv9000z, which options, processor, ram? 9000t?

by deadhook / March 11, 2007 6:22 AM PDT

I need a new laptop and think I like the dv9000z, but wanted to make sure it was okay. I don't know much about the different processors and how much ram is sufficient. Is this a laptop most people would recommend or that is pretty well rated and reliable?

Just use it for internet, watching movies, graphics work..no gaming. I do run several programs at a time and would love to not have lagtime when doing so.

Is the dv9000z a good buy for my needs? Which Processesor should I make sure it has?

Is there another HP for similar price that you'd recommend?

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

...or dv9220us or dv6275?

I'm looking for a laptop for internet, graphics work, watching movies and basic needs..no gaming. There are links to info/specs for them below, I just know so little about all this that it doesn't translate to anything meaninful for me.

I think I've narrowed it down to HP's because they seem to be popular, well rated and reviewed, but am not sure which of the above is the best.

I don't mind a smaller monitor which is the 6275 and that would save actually me a few hundred dollars!

Other then that, the 6275 is 1.83 processor speed vs. the 1.6 for the 9220.
So I'd get a faster processor for less money, just a slightly smaller monitor which is okay for me.

Anyone else able to give me some feedback or advice on these machines, which I should go for?

The dv9000 doesn't have the Core 2 Duo and is almost the same price, so anyone know what advantage that model has to the others?

THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Because I find with a 17" laptop, you lose the principal quality of the machine : the portability.

Take an Intel-based laptop. It heats less and you'll have a better battery life. It is also more performant than the AMD Turion 64 X2.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
