Summary: At Rs 30,467, the HP 2000-2202TU is one of the most affordable Core i3-powered laptops that come pre-installed with Windows 8. It packs good punch for its configuration, but we recommend adding 2GB RAM for optimal performance, which will set you back about Rs 900. If you already have a Windows license or plan to install Linux, you can opt for HP 2000-2201TU, which is the DOS variant with exactly the same set of hardware costing around Rs 3,000 less.
Summary: Before anyone scoffs at the specs of the HP 2000 notebook, it is important to note that this is a laptop that is catering to the budget market - the affordable machine that will either be the first laptop for a lot of users or the machine to buy when on a tight budget. Well built, which is a huge bonus. The excellent keyboard is the proverbial cherry on the proverbial cake. Performance is fairly acceptable, but the battery life is expectedly disappointing.
Pros: Very well built, Excellent keyboard, Bright and fairly sharp display, Windows 8 preloaded
Cons: Disappointing battery life, Touchpad is a tad inconsistent
Conclusion: The ZE2000 made a very good impression on us. We only wish we had a chance to try it with the 12 cell battery pack, which should have provided about 6.5 hours of battery life based on our experience with the HP Pavilion DV1000 which uses the same battery. With the 6 cell battery, though the 3 hours of battery life available should give the average user plenty of time to do some word processing, e-mailing, wireless browsing, etc.
Conclusion: 15.6 inches screen, Windows 8 64 bit OS and state-of-the-art features- HP has included just the right blend of functionality and capabilities into its quintessential. Both casual users and professional individuals will have fun in operating this device. Although the battery backup could have been a bit more efficient but that?s okay when you have a machine boasting truck laden features, it compensates well.
Conclusion: Overall, outfitted with piles of intuitive features and their functionalities, the new HP 2000-2202TU laptop is apt for those who would love to have one single device that meets all their personal and professional needs!
Pros: On its positive end, the laptop comes entangled with several intuitive connectivity ports including USB 2.0 ports, HDMI and many more. Not only this, but also you will locate SuperMulti DVD-RW drive with Dual Layer Support and HD webcam!
