Time to learn all about the processor
I need a cheap laptop for my step farther that knows next to nothing about computers. He needs a computer to list some collectible he wants to sell on Ebay. He lives a 1000 miles away from me so I won’t be able to help him hands on. Is this deal decent enough for someone with his simple needs?
1366x768 will be perfect! Just like it was in 2003.
Or what if you’re a HP A6 Quad Core dreaming it’s a real computer?
It would be adequate for simple web browsing and some light email checking. I wouldn’t try to process his eBay listing photos on it with anything more serious than paint.net or something.
Seriously - those A6’s are pretty painful by today’s standards. Or any standards in this century. “Anemic” would be about the kindest thing I could say.
Only one DIMM slot?!?!? Why did they make this??
Okay WOOT, what gives, I bought a refurbished laptop last week, it showed up loose in a box it could swim in outside a clear plastic bag bouncing around, with nothing but a single sheet pamphlet and loose power cord wadded inside a rubber band. If this is refurbished, I’m out on any future deals!!! BEWARE
[MOD: Apologies. I’ll let the team know. Pls email email@example.com if there are problems.]
Looks like it has the “Home” version of Windows instead of “Pro”. Not an issue until you go to join it to a network domain.
Yes, if his needs are basic, this should work fine.
Check out the Woot Buying Guide for Laptops and tell us what you think!
Windows 8.1 has fewer editions than previous versions of Windows.
There’s Win 8.1 and Win 8.1 Pro. Here’s a comparison chart of the two editions.
With the exception of being just a little light on memory, this is a good computer for almost anyone to use for day to day things like web-browsing and office work. A few years ago this would have been a powerful laptop. Seems like a very good deal to me.
Ok Woot. Please destroy all those HP 15(s).
They have been popping up every other day.
They are crap and probably somebody really messed up @ HP.
Here is what happened:
Stewie: “Here’s what I’m gonna do: let’s build a gigantic, ultra-heavy, crappy laptop with a resolution like it was 1999!!”.
Peter: “yeah do whatever you want, don’t disturb me”
Chris: “Can we also make the power supply completely different than all the other HP power supply and with the connector that won’t work with any of those multi-plug 3rd party power supply”
Peter: “sure sure, don’t bother me now, I’m busy watching Quagmire in action”
Brian: “Are you guys insane? who the hell is going to buy this crap?”
Adam West: “Yes, I approve it…”
You CAN still help if needed using TeamViewer free version.
Ok, my dear Woot computer snobs (and I say that lovingly), this isn’t a bad computer.
It’s a good entry-level laptop at an entry-level price.
It may not have the greatest processor or resolution but not everyone needs that and you won’t find those at this price point.
For now, the 1366x768 resolution is still the standard on most retail laptops. Our buyers keep looking for higher resolution laptops but they are harder to find.
That should offer you some fodder for discussion.
I agree. We have a couple of older and slower Toshibas. We use them for surfing the net and email, and they are fine. I’ve used Pikasa to do rudimentary photo editing on them.
It’s not the same experience as my desktop, which is set up for photo editing, but works fine on vacation to take RAW pics, crop, adjust, and export to JPEG. All on 1366 x 768…
If I needed one right now, I’d be in on this one.
