HP Pavilion DV5000t


Both the dv5000z and the dv5000t Core Duo have two QuickPlay 2.0 buttons (a Linux-based multimedia application): one that launches the system into a DVD video player mode, the other for playing media (music, photos, and video)—both without having to...

HP Pavilion DV5000t


I will never buy another HP product. Customer service is always a priority with most companies. Not with HP, once they get your money they dont care what happens. Oh they will fix it but how long will it take for you?

This machine does it all. Its been able to handle everything ive thrown at it. From watching movies on a beautifull screen to running all my business applications with ease

The hard drive failed after only 2 1/2 months. While I know this kind of thing happens even to the best of them I give HP a 0 out of 10 on customer support. This computer was purchased mainly for business use. HP would not give me a new one they...

Great for user stability and mobility!


This product is extremely stable and consistent. Having it for about 2 years, it has never given any problems and updates very easily. It is very durable and even stylish. The bright blue buttons glow up when the computer is on which looks terrific. ...

Pros include long battery life, portability, stylishness,and stability. It is very user friendly.

The remote battery life is not very long, and the range is very short.
