The first day of Ramadan and it’s a little different when you hear “Ramadan” when you’re in the Philippines and when you’re smack right in the center of K.S.A. Anyhow, most shops and stores are close during the day but there are some window where they can open and sell goods. I manage to visit Extra in Granada mall and checkout some of the laptops and gadgets that they sell.
Looks like HP having a party here, since almost all of their products are on display. One particular laptop that caught my attention is the HP Pavilion Entertainment (WZ699EA) Notebook. With black and white finish, Intel® Core™ i7 and an ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5650 Graphics to compliment its 15.6″ HD LED screen.

Unfortunately, the HP rep did not allow me to take a closer look of the unit, so that I can verify if it it also has a VGA port and HDMI, but from the HP web site, it doesn’t show that it has one. 🙁
