Is this a good choice?

by junior30 / February 23, 2005 10:59 PM PST

I am thinking of purchasing a HP Pavilion dv 1175us notebook, it has jsut about everything I am looking for in a laptop, especially for frequent travel purposes. The processor is a 1.6 GHz intel centrino Pentium M 725, is this sufficint or should I be looking elsewhere? Thanks for the help...

It might help answering your question if you told what you would want to do with the laptop.

I bought mine to replace my desktop, i am a windows admin, and need pretty much everything in one bundle.. since i travel all the time. The ONLY thing im missing from this great laptop is a serial port..., bluetooh works flawlessly (i use it to sync my cell phone), i have had this laptop for just over a week and have been really pleased with the battery life (ive got the 12cell).. i average 5.5-6 hours of battery life, less with wifi, but all in all this has been my fav. laptop so far.
