Based upon Intel's Pentium 4 architecture but without some of the perks of an extreme high-end, high-cost unit, the HP Pavilion ze5270 notebook PC is a sensibly designed mobile solution that's ready for virtually any business, personal, or leisure application.
Measuring 12.96 by 10.72 by 1.79 inches, the unit is a bit bulkier than some of the alternatives but surprisingly lightweight at just 7.5 pounds. Inside, HP has installed a powerful processing system comprised of a speedy 2.4 GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor and 512 MB of DDR SDRAM memory (expandable to 1,024 MB). A 64 MB ATI Mobility Radeon graphics controller handles the 3-D video workload, capably displaying all but the most cutting-edge 3-D games.
The unit features an adequate 40 GB hard disk, a 3.5-inch floppy disk drive for older or smaller applications, and a convenient DVD/CD-RW combo drive through which you can burn and play audio CDs, archive data, and watch the latest movies. DVD burning is not supported. The system's crisp 15-inch XGA TFT display supports images at 1,024 x 768 resolution, and its integrated 16-bit Sound Blaster Pro-compatible audio chipset and Altec Lansing speakers ensure you hear accurate, dynamic sound.
Controlling the Pavilion ze5270 is a snap. The unit features a full-size 88-key keyboard with embedded numeric keypad, a touchpad with on/off button, and a dedicated vertical scroll-up/-down pad. Other amenities include two USB 1.1 ports for plug-and-play peripherals, one IEEE 1394 port for high-speed interaction with demanding external peripherals such as digital camcorders, an S-Video TV-out, an RJ-45 Ethernet jack for fast network and Internet interaction, and a built-in 56K modem for low-speed e-communication.
Have had this laptop for about 4 months now, and find it to be a good computer. Have not had any problems with the DVD/CD-RW drive, I use it all the time. Read morePublished on June 2, 2003
