Laptop Comparison Computers in general in their retrospective are making a big role in schools but the most popular now a day is the laptop. Schools need well performing and reliable laptops to use for everyday school work. The local school district needs about thirty laptops and they have a 20,000 dollar budget. The two laptops I have in mind are the, Hp-Pavilion (Model: m61035dx) and the Toshiba-Satellite (Model: P875-S7200). These are both well performing laptops but the school needs one of them. HP has had many excellent laptops but the best model suited for the district would be the Hp-Pavilion (Model: m61035dx). This model in particular has many innovative features it has a 15.6 inch screen, a 6GB memory, and a 640GB hard drive. It’s a light compact laptop weighs 5.3 pounds and it’s universally thin just 1 inch. This computers operating system is the Windows 7 Home Premium which according to Best Buy, it got “4.3 out of 5 stars” for customer reviews. “This computer is fast, smooth operation, light weight, backlit keyboard its go everything you love.”(Randy Boyd, Best Buy). Hp-pavilion uses an AMD Quad Core processor. The battery life on this is said to be good, “Under the conditions of power saver the computer lasts 7 hours and 40 minutes” (StudentBuyingGuide.com). That is good battery life for a computer of this size and caliber excellent for students. This laptops price is $649.99 which is reasonable with everything it has including the Beats audio which by my point of view sound amazing. According to the customers they seem satisfied over the web (Hawkee.com) they made excellent reviews talking about how well this computer performs averaging, “4.5 stars out of 5”. The cons about this computer would be the keyboard and the screen resolution. Techgeek.com said, “The keyboard would have lots of wear and tear on it and there is no upgrade to the screen resolution.” With that being said this is still a good
