Purchased: December of 2007
Model: HP Pavilion dv6500 Notebook PC
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, 1.5GHz (mind blowingly slow!)
Memory/RAM: 1014MB (almost a gig of RAM, craptacular!)
Graphics: Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family (bottom of the line technology!)
Approx. Total Memory: 251MB
Display: 1280x800 (30bit/60Hz)
Also, the extremely loud cooling fan runs non stop! Even when the computer is freezing cold!
It freezes often, since I usually have open several programs, including Xfire, AIM, FireFox, Shareaza, uTorrent, and if I'm working on something, NotePad++ or sciTE (usually with irb, testing stuff out), Code::Blocks, or Borland CodeGear RAD Studio.
Of course, I'm being completely sarcastic throughout this entire post. My computer is well over a year old, and it's been obsolete for 95% of the time I've had it. It's falling apart, and I'm either going to have to:
1) Get a job and buy a completely new one.
2) Borrow money from my family and replace the keyboard (many a time I've beat up my keyboard in frustration)/upgrade RAM and video card (if that's possible on my laptop).
What do you think?
