HP Pavilion dv5000 dv5030us laptop used
I have had this laptop for about 3 years and I have recently upgraded to a new one.
The specs are:
15.4" LCD (native resolution 1280x800)
AMD Turion 64 @ 2.0 GHz
ATI Radeon Xpress 200M 256MB
2 GB RAM (upgraded from 1 GB)
160 GB (IDE) 5400RPM HDD (Hitachi) (upgraded from Seagate 100GB 4200RPM)
DVD+-RW 8x (24x CD-R)
12-cell Li-Ion Battery (lasts 3 hours with normal use)
COA for Windows XP MCE 2005
Remote control for media center
5-in-1 media reader (does not read SDHC)
3 x USB 2.0
1 x 10/100 Realtek Ethernet
1 x VGA out
1 x AC Adaptor (HP, not some 3rd party brand)
This machine works great if you're not playing recent games, but it faired okay even with Command & Conquer Tiberium Wars. I used it a lot to play games of the 2000-2003 era, especially RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 and The Sims 2.
Windows XP runs smooth as ever on this machine, and you have a legitimate license. Linux will run okay, but part of the reason I upgraded was due to the video card. I even ran Mac OS X on this fine. It will handle anything. Machine will come with a clean install of MCE 2005 (no HP crap, no Norton crap).
There are some scratches on the top surface mainly. Also a visible mark on the touch-pad from use. Screen has 1 barely visible scratch and is not visible when the screen is on (only visible under certain light).
Asking $275. Negotiate with me via PM. I'm posting this on multiple forums just so you know.
