First Impression: HP 2000-2c20NR

The HP 2000-2c20NR was purchased to replace my current HP Pavilion G62. The reason of why is the current PC was essentially going on its last days. It lost all of its feet, and lost one bumper for the monitor. The power button is temperamental, the SD card reader is not functioning, the F4 key is only on the keyboard due to a piece of scotch tape. The system will overheat, and the Shut Down has errors with it. On top of that, it has failed to even pass beyond the BIOS boot which is essential for any PC a few times. With this in mind, it is understandable of why I felt I should have got a new PC. For now, my G62 is still functional (considering), however it can not serve as a primary PC any longer. It will be demoted as a guest system, and hold my iTunes resources which I still use until I can find a competent replacement and move over to Android entirely (retiring the iPods).

The HP 2000 (the noted model) has an Intel Pentium Mobile CPU running at 2.4Ghz dual core. This is not the i3-i7 series CPUs. It has one 4GB SODIMM, and is upgradeable to two 8GB memory slots. It has a 720p resolution webcam, and integrated Intel series graphics. Drives include an SD card slot, a 500GB 5400RPM hard drive, and a DVD Writer. Ports include 1 VGA, 1 HDMI-out port (plugs into a TV or monitor), three USB2 ports, an RJ45-1GBPS and a VGA port (because we live in the 90s). It has Wifi-bgn support, but no Bluetooth. The screen size is 15.6” diagonal. There is also a speaker, and microphone jack, but there are integrated speakers, and mics.

June 20

Not much happened today. Most of the day was spent cursing at the monitor that is blanking out for sometimes a couple of minutes and in intervals between 5 – 20 minutes. With a little research, I am hoping it is the VGA cable (from PC to Monitor) which is about $15 – $20 (I hope) rather than the cost of a new monitor which the cheapest is about $100.

I decided to eat my meal a little early. It was OK as I usually just eat once a day, and normally not an issue of when. A few hours afterwards, my brother stopped down for a couple of hours. Afterwards, I watched a PBS show on Netflix.
