TODAY you can beat that price point.
I currently have a CQ60-211DX but killed it with coffee spillage, no way to fix unless i bring it in. I figured it would probably cost about the same to just get a newer model? im not tech saavy but was searching for this same one on the internet but only came out with bigger numbers than the 211, im not sure what DX stands for but im assuming its what i want since i liked this model so much. I love the number keypad and width didnt bother me. I found: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/HP+-+Laptop+with+Intel%26%23174%3B+Pentium%26%23174%3B+Processor+-+Black/Silver/9601332.p?id=1218130741741&skuId=9601332 which is a 549DX. I also found: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/HP+-+Laptop+with+Intel%26%23174%3B+Pentium%26%23174%3B+Processor+-+Piano+Black/9514251.p?id=1218119739522&skuId=9514251 439NR. I dont know much about specs but i do know i need the laptop to replace my desktop-more or less & using it for homework/research/surf the net/music, basics!
I need input on if i should get one of these upgrades? or to get the one i have fixed. Its been like 3 weeks since the spill and i did try to air it out but wasnt able to get the keyboard or back off in time to try to save it, i could still try but even customer suppport tried to help me and was unsuccessful...i reseat the memory module which did nothing
i would appreciate your help & opinions! Also if you think one will suit me better please feel free to recommend i dont want to spend more than 500. no dells/macs please.
