Default Laptop Questions

I got some questions, at the pawn shop is a HP pavillion zv 5000 laptop for sale...They want $999

But I looked at it and it has a:

AMD Anthlon 3000 Processor, when I look at stats it reads as 750mhz!! IS there a such thing!?

-512 RAM
-50GIG HD
-Windows XP
-18" widescreen
-dvd/cd rw
-32 mb g force graphics (can it be upgraded)?

Do you think its worth $999...I want to talk them down to $200 lol.

If you really want one like that badly, go to the HP site and you can get an extremely good one for cheaper than that. If you don't like HP (like most people i know) then go with Toshiba, they might be expensive, but they are worth it

$200 laptop? You're looking at maybe a 500mhz if you're lucky unless the pawn shop people are stupid there's no way you can talk em down to 200 for that laptop.

Your expectations are to high, you need to spend atleast a good 500$ to by a decent laptop worth keeping!
