d530 review

Overstock
9 September 2009
  • Summary: d530 arrived on time, well packed, with no damage. XP installed easily, with no problems, well documented procedure. Picked tower because of problems with small form pcs, overheating or not cooling properly.main complaint is relatively loud hard drive, which if pushed, sounds like failing bearin on drive. with 40 gig drive and only 512mb of ram, not surprising that drive almost worn out.

Quality used PC

Overstock
1 July 2009
  • Summary: This computer is probably 5 years old, so it's performance isn't anything great. What is great is a 1 year warranty on business PC that is affordable for small companies in a struggling economy. If you can afford more, I suggest you buy a newer faster machine. If not you shouldn't be disappointed for the money.

  • Excerpt: I have used the HP530, when i first bought it was good and the speed was just marvelous, I was enjoying every moment with my Laptop and the sound to was just wonderful. As time goes by the HP530 has become very irritating and most time slowing down my work, I have also realized a heat problem of late making it difficult to go for a long without external power source.
  • Pros: The HP530 is very easy to use and portable, with high quality sound
  • Cons: After a long time it's tend to heat up

  • Summary: Im currently using one of these as a basis for a mobile recording studio. If i was to be using the pre installed vista basic Im sure the performance would be nowhere near what i needed. BUT! with HP's long time support for the open source community it was a breeze to install ubuntu 11.04 on it plus the 945 graphics are capable of running nice graphics in gnome 3 and also their (admittedly low) 3d capabilities will let you run the 3d unity interface if thats what floats...
  • Pros: Its cheap, runs well and looks good
  • Cons: runs quite warm

  • Excerpt: HP 530 - Core Duo is best for business as well as other uses. Previously i was owned other company notebook and occurs some problems everyafter 15 days...so i switched to HP 530 - Core Duo T2050 1.6 GHz - 15.4" TFT notebook.

HP 530 has a very good screen resolution and its very important to make impression while you give some demo about your product.Also helpful while watching movie.
  • Pros: Have great features like picture quality, huge memory attractive model .
  • Cons: weight is some what similar to other 15 . 4" models .  It s should be less .

Works great with PCLinux 2007

jawz, Ciao
22 January 2008
  • Excerpt: 've left Vista on the HD but partitioned half of the remaining space for linux. All hardware ran 'out-of-the-box' except for the wireless lan, just a quick download from HP and Bobs your uncle or ndiswrapper perhaps. Only problem I had, that the machine comes new with 3 partitions already on it, for backup and stuff for Vista I suppose. PClos wouldn't partition it, but Ubuntu had no such problems. 3D desktop runs wonderful, showing the intel graphics card is up to job.
  • Pros: Cost, Speed, screen
  • Cons: Limited connectivity, Vista !

  • Excerpt: So what's it got and is it worth it. My 530 come with Vista Home Basic 32 pre-installed with the option of the Business 32 version for a little extra. It's powered by an IntelCore Due T2050 processor at 1.6GHz with 2MB level 2 cache and 533MHz FSB. The memory let's it down at only 512Mb, which struggles to keep up woth the demand of Vista.
  • Pros: Cost, Reliability, Battery Life, WIFI Range
  • Cons: Display not best, memory  -  not enough

Неплохой бюджетник

  • Excerpt: Не скажу, что ярый поклонник ноутбуков, все-таки отличия от обычных стационарников есть. Но по работе часто приходится пользоваться ноутбуком, поэтому решил выбрать что-то бюджетное, но при этом, чтобы выбор не сильно отставал по функциональности. Люблю делать покупку осознанно, читаю отзывы, подбираю параметры, советуюсь на форумах.
  • Pros: низкая цена, хорошее качество, невысокий нагрев
  • Cons: слышно кулер, если он включен
