Amazon.com Product Description
The lightweight HP Pavilion dv1150us notebook PC fuses together the world of mobile computing with a portable home theater.

 Watch DVDs on the bright, high-definition-ready 14-inch screen, and share the experience with dual headphone jacks. You can also burn your own CDs and DVDs with the multifomat DVD+/-RW and CD-RW combo drive. The dv1130us is powered by a power-saving 1.5 GHz Pentium M (Centrino) processor, which provides up to a 3-hour battery life. Other features include a large 80 GB hard drive, 512 MB of installed RAM, 54g wireless connectivity,

 and a multiformat memory card reader for easy access to pictures captured on your digital camera.
The Basics

Hard Drive: The 80 GB hard drive (4200 RPM) is one of the larger sizes youЎЇll find in a notebook, and itЎЇs befitting of such an entertainment-centric PC. It offers more than enough capacity for storing documents and productivity software for road warriors. YouЎЇll also be able to store a good-sized digital audio library.
Processor: The 1.5 GHz speed sits in the upper-middle spectrum of currently available Pentium M (Centrino) processors, and will be fast enough for multimedia applications.

 The Pentium M processor is designed specifically for low-power mobile usage, and it features the latest in power-saving technologies--ensuring you push your battery and productivity to the max. The dv1150us has a large 2 MB L2 cache and a 400 MHz front-side bus. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your systemЎЇs performance.)
Memory: The 512 MB of built-in memory (2 x 256 MB, DDR SDRAM) is a good start for power users,

though it is a little slower (266 MHz) than RAM found in other entertainment-centric laptops. It has two memory slots in total, with a maximum memory expansion up to 2 GB (2 x 1024 MB), and youЎЇll want to maximize the RAM within your budget to take advantage of this notebookЎЇs multimedia capabilities.
CD/DVD Drive: The combo DVD+/-RW and CD-RW drive is compatible with a wide variety disc formats, including DVD+, DVD-, VCD, and SVCD discs. For DVD-RW discs, it has a 1x write/rewrite speed, while for DVD+RW discs it has a 2x write/rewrite speed (DVDs are read at 5x).

 For CDs, it has a 16x write/10x rewrite/40x read speed.
Keyboard & Mouse: This notebook has a standard 101-key keyboard and two-button touchpad with on/off button and dedictated vertical scroll up/down pad.
Screen, Graphcs and Sound
The 14-inch BrightView WXGA high-definition widescreen display has a 15:9 aspect ratio and 1280 x 768-pixel resolution, providing 25% more screen information and the same widescreen film picture size as a standard 15-inch XGA screen. YouЎЇll get TV-quality images, even in direct sunlight. It also features the integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2 video/graphics card

(with 64 MB of shared video memory), 16-bit Sound Blaster Pro-compatible audio, and internal Harman/Kardon speakers.
