HP Winter Blue 2000-2d49WM laptop user expectations

By Peter Chubb - Nov 27, 2013

One of the biggest laptop makers is HP because they have a huge range of high-end laptops, along with those tailored for those of you with a smaller budget. Many consumers struggle to commit to a budget laptop because their low-end specs means that some of them might benefit from a tablet instead, but the HP Winter Blue 2000-2d49WM laptop could make you rethink that decision.

While the 2000-2d49WM specs might not blow you away, they are not as low-end as you might think, which is a surprise considering its price. We know prices for laptops change all the time, but we know that this is the best time of the year to get a new laptop because of a greater chance to grab a bargain.

Going back to those specs, you get a 15.6-inch display, a 1.30GHz AMD E-300 processor, 4GB of RAM, 320GB hard drive, AMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics, HP TrueVision HD webcam, and up to 4 hours battery life.

    I got this same 2d49wm at Walmart around Christmas for $249. They only had displayed a $299 model that only differed by color. I had to ask for the $249 model. With the 50 dollars I saved I bought an extra 4gb RAM (this comes with 4gb RAM upgradeable to 8) so now I have 8gb Ram/ Quite a difference in performance noticed on videos; youtube would almost always stutter and stall with only 4gb even at lowest possible resolution quality, now with 8gb RAM it almost never stalls, etc even at higher resolution than minimum. Be sure to upgrade to windows 8.1 as soon as you get it, too. Overall I think it is a pretty good thing with the max 8gb RAM, as I do not play games. Sure, the E-300 processor is a bit slow, so you do have to wait an extra second or so compared to faster processors when loading pages, etc. Also, downloading programs like windows 8.1 can take twice as long than something with a 2x faster processor. Big deal, as those things only happen once. Overall I give it a B on performance (8gn Ram installed) and an A on price I paid, 249+50=$299.
