HP Pavilion dv4-1548dx Laptop

The processor is the Intel Pentium Processor model T4300 which is a dual core processor with two processing threads.  It operates at 2.1 GHz and has 1 MB of L2 cache.  The front side bus runs at 800 MHz and this is of course a 64-bit processor.  The system comes with 4 GB of DDR3 RAM installed and can be upgraded to 8 GB.

The display is a 14.1″ diagonal WXGA High-Definition HP BrightView widescreen display (1280×800).  This display is driven by  the Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD.  It features up to 1695MB of Intel® Dynamic Video Memory Technology 5.0 and supports Microsoft DirectX 10 for gaming.  Altec Lansing speakers with SRS Premium Sound. HDMI output for flexible connectivity options.

For storage this laptop has a 250GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400 RPM.  A pretty small drive for a laptop these days, and not top of the line speed-wise.  It should be adequate for most needs though.The optical drive is a Multiformat DVD±RW drive with double-layer support.

This laptop has 3 options for connecting to the Internet.  The fastest option is the built-in 10/100 Ethernet LAN port (RJ-45). Next comes with 802.11 b/g wireless port for mobile connections.  And last is the integrated 56kb modem.  Let’s just hope you don’t have to use that.

Video chat is made easy with the HP Webcam with integrated digital microphone. The 5-in-1 integrated Digital Media Reader for Secure Digital cards, MultiMedia cards, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, or xD Picture cards makes it easy to transfer to pictures from your digital camera.  Other ports include 3 Universal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0, 3rd port shared with eSATA, 1 Headphone out, 1 microphone-in, 1 HDMI for connecting to your HDTV, 1 VGA (15-pin), 1 notebook expansion port 3, and 1 Consumer IR (Remote Receiver). For more expansion it comes with a ExpressCard/54 Slot (also supports ExpressCard/34).

The system comes with Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit with SP1.  It’s a bit disappointing to see laptops still available with Vista when Windows 7 is out already.
