Laptop purchase confusion…
Compaq Presario M2254AU + Carry Case : AMD TURION 64 ML32 @ 1.8 GHz / ATI Radeon XPRESS 200 Chipset / 512 MB DDR SDRAM / 60GB HDD Ultra DMA / 8X Double Layer DVD +R/+RW Writer / 15″ XGA TFT Display with BrightView Screen Technology / ATI Radeon XPRESS 200M PCI Express Graphics / Up to 64 MB Shared Memory / Altec Lansing Stereo Speakers / 6-in-1 Digital Media Reader / 56K Modem / NIC / Integrated Wireless LAN 802.11b/g / Integrated Bluetooth / LiIon Battery / TouchPad / S-Video TV Out / IEEE 1394 / 3 USB 2.0 / Win XP Home/Weight 3 kgs
Is this a good buy at Rs 41,000?
This is for my dad’s use, which for all practical purposes is limited to MS Office applications, and a photo organizer like Picasa. No games, so Graphics mostly irrelevant.
Also, any opinions on the Brightview Screen technology. I saw the screen, and I am not sure I like it much. For someone who will use it 4 hrs a day, is this screen ok?
Any words of wisdom most welcome. Aside, does anyone know what’s the cost of the home edition of Office XP?
