Sold - HP dv9000 Pavilion Laptop PC "Rahab" - £50

This HP dv9000 Pavilion laptop computer is one of a batch of machines that used to be our break out room stock at larger conferences. It has been flight cased from new and as a result this HP dv9000 Pavilion is in near mint condition, unlike so many examples found on eBay, Gumtree, etc.

It hasn't seen much use in the last few years, but fired up immediately without issue and has continued to run on soak test reliably. The battery holds charge well and provides 2 hours of use, inexpensive replacements are available on eBay if needed.

The hardware specification is as follows:

  • 2 GB memory

  • Network port
  • Firewire port

It comes with the Windows Vista operating system installed. It has been tested with Linux Mint 19.3 "Tricia"  - Xfce (64-bit) which would be a great free upgrade with a Windows like interface. It would be perfect for general web browsing, Skype, YouTube, etc.

One unusual feature of the HP dv9000, which I have never seen on a laptop before, is a pop out wireless remote control for media playback functions. Some of the key controls even worked using Linux Mint right out of the box.
