Few weeks back I got HP G62-b13sa Laptop for special discount of 360£. I think this price was reasonable for 3GB RAM, 320GB hard drive,15.6" screen and Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium.
The following are the Pros and Cons that I have seen on HP G62-b13sa laptop,
1) Finished in Biscotti with a stylish Prism pattern which is very attractive.
2) Inbuilt webcam and Microphone work perfectly.
3) Sound quality is excellent.
4) Although the processor is not that much powerful, it seems to handle multitasking work without any issue.
5) Very lighter(2.20KG) than some laptops.
1) Keyboard key layout is very confusing.They have included 5 short cut keys to left of the keyboard and this some times becomes messy when you are in a hurry typing, you will press the short cut key instead of the standardised keys such as shift,ctrl etc that normally resides in left of the keyboard.
2) Touch pad does not have a clear boundary with the laptop body. So It is bit hard to scroll and move the mouse some times when you are in a hurry. Also right and left click buttons seems to be bit rigid.
So other than the track pad and keyboard layout issue, I think HP G62-b13sa Laptop is a value for money product.

With few days to the Presidential election both side MR(Mahinda Rajapaksa)& SF(Sarath Fonseka) are trying to gain the floating vote of the people that haven't decide to whom to be vote.
MR with his band of ministers are using their full strength in slinging mud towards the opponent and misusing the government resources. While SF is giving false promises to everyone he met although I am quite sure he will not have any idea how to execute his promises & specially when he forgets the people who have helped him to become the army commander, he will surely forgets his promises if he come to power.
Unfortunately or fortunately this time i will not be able to vote because i am not in Sri Lanka at the time but if I vote I will vote MR because he is more cunning actor than SF and to control a country like Sri Lanka we need person like that.May be lot of people will disagree but that's my personal opinion.
Following are the official web sites of both candidate if you wish you can visit those site as well.

Recently i got the opportunity to install windows xp on a laptop although for some people it will be nothing but for me it was first time in a laptop. So i was very careful and somehow the installation went smoothly and successfully completed. Because there was no driver cd's given i have to go the HP web site and download all the drivers for laptop model HP compaq 510 model.
After installing all the drivers as i was shutting down the laptop i felt that it took more time to shutdown and seems like the laptop have been hang at the shutdown displaying the message "Windows is Shutting Down". I tried few times like this and every time laptop freezes up at the shutting down.
I was really got scared what the hell just happened because there is nothing wrong with the windows xp cd that i have. So i googled about Windows XP shutting down issue in compaq 510 model and found out that this happens due to some driver software issue but the forums didn't specifically mentioned what driver it cause this issue. Also as a one my friends advice i tried to shutdown the laptop from the safe mode and it shutdown the laptop smoothly.
So now i had the task of identify which driver that giving me this issue so i tried one by one disabling the components and check if it works and at last i found that the culprit was the web cam driver as i disable it the laptop shutdown as usual. Still there was no solution because it is a headache to disable and enable the device and the person who is using the laptop was not a IT friendly person. So i tried uninstalling and installing webcam driver few times but it didn't work.
As i was going through the control panel Add/Remove Programs i found that web cam driver also install some software also other than the driver it self and i removed that software from Add/Remove Programs and bingo it worked. So at last after wasting a almost a day i found the solution.
So that was my first adventure of installing Windows xp on a Laptop. :)
