New Laptop Computer

I have been thinking about getting another laptop, because two is never enough. I started looking before windows 8 came out and probably should have pulled the trigger then but like everyone else I could not see spending the money at the time. I looked at netbooks and the full size versions and never found what I wanted. Then Windows 8 was released and I was no closer to a new laptop. I did what any Ham would do, I started looking on the used market. What I was finding was not good, to high or to worn out. So here I am still looking and all the new ones are Windows 8 units. So last night I was in a smaller local computer retailer looking at what they had. I was playing with one with Windows 8 on a display model and was not very happy with the OS when the manager asked if he could help. I told him if he had anything but windows 8 I would be interested. This is when he told me he had one clearance HP Windows 7 laptop with about the same specifications as the one I was looking at. So I walked out of the store with a HP 2000-2a10NR.

  • AMD E_Series_Dual_Core_E1_1200 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 320GB 5400rpm Hard Drive
  • 15.6-Inch Screen, AMD Radeon HD 7310
  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
I will give this a try and hope I made a good choice. At this time I will use a Linux version before I go to Windows 8. I might use Windows again if they come out with something better.
