The other day my rents came home with an 2004 HP laptop. Its pretty nice, a little fat. But it has wireless internet, bluetooth, Windows XP and 512 ram, 40 gigs HD space. All for $325.. What I wanna know is... Is that a good deal?

That could definitely not go vista w/ 512mb of ram.
But its not ABSOLUTELY terrible... but worth $325. It'll do basic stuff.

No, not really. I'd recommend immediately upgrading the RAM. That computer is going to be able to do basic internet browsing and basic word processing, other than that is a paper weight.

I bet its got a 1.8 GHz processor. That sounds like a pavilion dv6000. I bought one with a printer for $800 when it was new. It got stolen though...

its not a bad deal necessarily...
but go upgrade the ram to like 2gigs
and upgrade the hard drive to like 200gigs
and maybe upgrade the processor then it will be sweet

I don't think it's worth 325 euro's. it's 4! years old. you can get much better for that money

its not terrible.

you should definitely upgrade the RAM. also, you might want a bigger hard drive, but that depends on what you plan on using it for. 40gb is fine if you arent using it for things that require a lot of memory.

It's an ok deal. You need more RAM though.

Ok, so for upgrading the ram to.... 2 gigs... How much would that run me?

He would practically be cheaper buying a new laptop with those specs than upgrading..
