From Asus Eee PC 1000H to an HP Pavilion

And I thought men were not fickle-minded. I just changed my mind suddenly about which laptop to buy. All along I thought I was already set at buying an Asus Eee PC 1000H but when I received an email from my father-in-law that there is an HP Pavilion on sale (14.1" Pavillion with Core 2 Duo technology, 3GB of ram and 160 GB of hard space for $ 499) for the Black Friday sale, I immediately bit into it.

The reason is because I was thinking that I won't be able to purchase that here. Even though the specs given were not very specific I just assumed that it's got high specifications because of some clues, like being a Core 2 Duo, and having a 3GB memory. Even if I don't know the processing speed I just assumed that it's high enough.

I did some quick search from a local store and saw that most HP Pavilions cost about P40,000 to P80,000. So having it cost brought down to $499 makes it just a bit below P25,000. I guess with that decision I weighed the laptop's specs heavier against lightweight features of the other netbooks I was looking at before. Anyway, I hope my decision ends up right.
