My husband and I had wanting to get a laptop to use as a desktop computer takes up so much space, and we wanted something we take on trips or to use when we went to places that had Wi-fi access. So, one day, on a whim, we went to Circuit City and we saw this HP Pavillion Laptop computer and we loved it. It had a 17" widescreen monitor and the one thing I really liked was that it had a numerical keypad built onto the right-hand side, just like a regular computer keyboard. For me, this was important because I do a lot with numbers and I dislike having to use the top-row number keys unless necessary.
This computer has an 80gb hard drive and 2 gb of ram which is plenty for what we need it for. It also has a wireless card so we can have access to wireless hotspots. It is quite heavy for a laptop computer, but after purchasing a nice case, it is easy enough to transport around.
The price of the laptop was $1, 100.00 but after adding software that we needed and other miscellaneous items for it, it ended up being close to $2, 000, but still a great buy.
