It all depends on what you want to do with the laptop. I've never been a fan of the Pavilion line,or Presario or Inspiron, etc, the "home" laptops. So what you need to decide is are you going to carry the laptop around or is it just going to set on a desk. You can feel the difference between a Pavilion and Omnibox (HP's home and business lines). The homs ones just feel flimsy, you can usually twist and flex the case. Also notice it doesn't specify a Pentium M processor so I bet it has a desktop cpu, which to a laptop means hot, heavy, and bad battery life. I carry my laptop everywhere and the home ones just don't hold up.
