Appraisal: My HP zd8000 laptop

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Ok, so my dad wants me to find out how much I could get for my HP zd8000 laptop so I decided what better place than here to get an appraisal, if he is happy with the appraisal, paypal's fees and is comfortable with this it could be up for sale on this site very soon......

SPECS:
17in 1680x1050 16:10 widescreen display with BrightView technology (the screen basically feels like glass and this makes the colors more vivid, apparently)
Intel Pentium 4 530 3.0GHz desktop CPU
512MB DDR2 400
ATI Mobility X600XT 256MB PCIe
60GB 5400RPM HDD (could be 7200RPM but Im not sure so I figured I would underball it)

The laptop is quite thick and heavy, I am not going to lie here and be honest, I HATE it and I even made a post in the laptop roundup thread saying to never buy this hunk of junk, also the HP logo fell off and I colored in where it used to be with black sharpie although I still have the logo which I could crazy glue back on, it came off during shipping to me from HP when the USB port broke and it took HP's "service" 3 months to fix it at a cost of $297! (you can taste my anger at HP, huh?)

I paid about $1800 with shipping and tax for this thing and apart from the missing HP logo it is as good as new, obviously I would format and install Windows XP HP Edition back on it before I sold it to whoever wants it.

EDIT//// http://reviews.cnet.com/HP_Pavilion_...ationDate+desc this is the laptop, also forgot to note you MUST have this thing plugged in, battery life is just over an hour, about 25 minutes if you are gaming, not kidding. ALTHOUGH this is with all powersaving features turned off, if you turn on the powerplay (for graphics card) and battery saving features im sure you could up your game time to about 45 minutes. This is basically geared towards being a desktop replacement.

EDIT//// lol forgot wireless, built in internal 802.11g (either a/b/g or b/g but who cares, no one uses a anyways lol) and I know the wireless works with G only since that is the only network I have, but I know it also works with b but not sure about a, sorry.

You bought that for 1800??? My guess is that its worth around $1200 now.

My sentiments exactly, but I got it way back early 2005 (gotta get used to saying that instead of this year lol) so it's about 10-11 months old (even though it spent 3 months at the HP repair center, goddam idiots lol) but yes I know it was way over priced and I have been kicking myself the whole time I have owned it, but basically its just not a gaming machine, for watching DVDs it is excellent, that display is REALLY something, and for pretty much anything but gaming it is a beast.

$450, I actually have a friend selling his because he is buying an XPS. he is selling his for 500 with an extra battery and has more options than yours.

Questions though. Does yours have wireless connectivity?

Laptops still use PCI/AGP/PCIe architectures, they just do not have the physical slots for them, the chip is native PCIe x16 so it has full desktop PCIe x16 bandwidth, was the first one with this feature as a matter of fact!
