More Than 100 Days with the HP 2140

Plurking with the HP 2140

If I were Korean and the HP 2140 is my boyfriend, then last July 29 would’ve been our baek-il or our 100 days of being together.

I bought the HP 2140 last April 20, 2009 and now, more than  100 days of using it, I feel that I need to blog about it from a non-techie user’s point of view.

I wanted to buy a netbook ever since Asus released the earliest Eee PC models. And like a moth drawn to light, I searched for the most suitable netbook in the market and after months of online research, I decided to purchase the HP 2140.

The main reasons why I chose the HP 2140 over other netbooks is that it has a sleek metal alloy body and has a better keyboard size.  Although it is heavier than most netbooks on the market, I think the HP 2140 is still light considering it weighs only 2.6 lbs.  I am also satisfied with its battery life even if my netbook runs on a 3-cell lithium-ion battery.

If there is something I don’t like about the HP 2140 is its 1024 x 576 native screen resolution.  It is not even the standard screen resolution for netbooks and as a result, I can’t run  one of the language softwares I use on my previous laptop.  Also, it would’ve been better if the AC adapter that came with the HP 2140 is a little smaller.

Still, I say that the HP 2140 is still worth every centavo of the Php23,990.00 I paid for it.  Even with its limitatons, I am happy with the HP 2140 because it is one sturdy  little machine which enables me to blog and do a  slew of various computing activities offline and online.

      Also check out the Asus Eee PC 1005HA-P. Keyboard size is at par with the HP 2140, has better screen resolution and loooongggeerrr bat life. 🙂
