Excerpt: I brought the HP DV2500 notebook as my replacement of my bulky desktop for college. Thinking for $600 is a great buy. The laptop comes with 2 GB of ram, 120GB of hard drive, 8X dvd burner, and a dual core Intel processor. It has a built in webcam, microphone, finger print reader, and Bluetooth. It was preinstall with Vista Home edition. The laptop freeze lots and some program crash but it the OS software to blame; it works fine after I downgrade to Window XP SP3.
Excerpt: Nice computer, great features. But plan to start saving for its replacement soon as you get it out of the box. Mine broke after 22 months. HP quotes a repair charge that approaches the cost of a new computer. I'm a technical professional who has used HP products for approximately 40 years. Based on this experience and problems I have had with other HP products, my sense is this company's grasp on durability is in serious decline from its one-time greatness.
