Tis the season for computer bargains! Don’t waste your precious time, fight the crowds, and drive around any more than necessary. Interested in a holiday notebook purchase? Laptop Logic has done the legwork for you; let your fingers do the clicking to the best deal. How good you wonder? How about their “best deal,” an HP notebook from Wal-Mart for the amazing low price of $378.
“This machine has a lot to offer for the money. Its biggest advantage is the AMD Sempron processor, with PowerNow! technology. While performance will be similar, or even slightly slower than the Celeron M competitors, the big advantage you’re going to see here is battery life. This chip has a 25W TDP, higher than the Celeron M’s 21W TDP, but the big thing here is PowerNow! The Sempron chip’s clock will dynamically fluctuate based on load, just like the Turion 64 and Pentium M. Due to this, users will probably see around 2.5-3 hours of battery life on the reasonable 6 cell battery. The rest of the specs are pretty standard, except when you browse to the memory. 1GB maximum DDR RAM? We’re not sure HOW they pulled this off, but HP’s website does not lie (or does it?). While 1GB will be more than sufficient for the average user, or the kind of use buying a sub-$400 laptop, it is something to keep in mind for the long run. All of the other machines have 3 USB 2.0 ports compared to the ze2108wm’s 2 ports, but it does have a higher capacity battery and the more advanced Radeon Xpress 200M graphics.”
