The HP Pavilion dv2500 special edition is your typical lightweight laptop with more features than others provide. It comes with Windows Vista to keep your laptop more organized. Built-in webcam which is clear if you have good background lighting; the webcam is integrated with the program Cyberlink YouCam. The Pavilion dv2500 has 285 GB of local disk space (C: drive) and 12.9 GB of HP Recovery disk space (D: drive). This is a lot of space for a laptop. Great for people who like to play games, download music and/or enjoy watching television or movies on their computers. The only complaint I have in regards to this laptop is the battery. The battery life is approximately 2 hours. If you are a traveler, make sure to buy a spare or buy a longer-lasting battery. The HP Pavilion Special Edition is constantly having updates so just keep on top of it and this laptop will be your best friend. The speed is great as long as you don't have to many programs running in the background. Maintain a anti-virus protection, such as Norton, on this laptop. It's worth it. There is one more complaint which tends to cross my mind. The mouse tends to have a mind of its own sometimes, if cleaniness of the mouse is not maintained. The laptop's smartkeys above the keypad are very sensitive, especially the volume button. Beware of the volume button! Other than those few complains, this is the laptop I use and HP has not let me down so far. Thinking more on the upside, this laptop has the energy star, which is definitely a plus.
