By Alan Ng Are you prepared for the massive influx of holiday deals that will come your way during the busy Thanksgiving period? If so, you’ll probably find this HP 2000-bf69WM review of specs useful, which are from a HP 15.6-inch laptop that would be an ideal gift for a loved one this holiday season. If you ask consumers what their preference product is during the holiday sales, a lot of them will probably say a new laptop comes first before anything else. Year after year we see various laptop models sell with crazy discounts, with retailers and manufacturers loving the win win situation in terms of an extra boost in sales and also another boost to brand awareness.
HP laptops are likely to be a very popular item during the holiday sales and one such laptop that we have information on for you now is the HP 2000-BF69WM 15.6-inch laptop, which is an exclusive product to Walmart. It is a mid-level laptop with decent specifications, starting with a AMD-based Dual-Core E-450 accelerated processor at 1.65Ghz.
The RAM is impressive at 4GB, while there will also be plenty of storage available with a 320GB hard drive. The display features BrightView LED-backlit display technology, while semi-hardcore gaming will also be possible with a AMD Radeon HD 6320 discrete-class graphics card on board – anything is better than the dreaded Intel integrated graphics of course.
In terms of connectivity features, there are suitable options available to you, with 3 USB ports and a VGA cable. However, it is really disappointing to see that there is no HDMI port on this laptop, which is a big blow for those of you who like to hook the PC up to a television for viewing media content on a larger display. With that in mind, we can only recommend this laptop to those who do not require a HDMI out port. Other than that, it is a perfectly good laptop for the budget price that you will pay and a perfect gift for children or family members that require a basic laptop.
At the moment, the device currently ships with Windows 7, but our insider sources have told us that Walmart’s Black Friday 2012 ads will deliver a special deal for this laptop for around $280, and they claim it will be running Windows 8 and not the older software for the HP 2000-bf69WM model picked up during this holiday season. We also hear that another model will join this one with a slightly different number, 2000-bf89WM, so we’ll be sure to hunt down more info on both these models in the coming days. If you have any tips about the specs then leave a comment below.
That is another good reason why this laptop may be a steal during the holiday season – low price, Windows 8 and decent performance with a dual-core processor and satisfactory graphics card for gaming. Let us know if you are considering this laptop, or indeed if you have already purchased one
