Walmart HP Garden Dreams Pavilion Special Edition: Specs & Review


Well, the point of discussion is pretty simple will you go for a floral design laptop or will a more technological design do the job for you. I guess? Beauty is an essential (you cannot possibly buy a laptop that has crooked edges!) but not to the extent that the laptop will bear floral design atleast not for the techno savvy people. But even in our generation there are quite a few people that still give a beauty of a device preference over its technical qualities. HP, one of the biggest sellers of Laptop computers is trying to fish for people in this mindset with its new range of laptops called by the name “HP Garden Dreams Pavilion dv5-2129wm”. This is a special edition product that is available for sale through the Walmart sale stores.

As the name already suggests the laptops are carrying floral designs and are a blonde’s eye candy. Well not that we know exactly what the company has in mind, but it does not clearly seem to be the best move that the company has planned for the coming Black Friday. Just because of its specifications, price and its design. Nevertheless, if you’re still interested here are the specs. The HP Garden Dreams Pavilion comes with a 14.5 inch LED Brightview display whereas its whole flowery body is powered by a 2.4GHz AMD Turion P540 processor, RAM count is set up to 4GB with DD3 overclocking capability and  500 GB SATA HD storage capacity.


It also has an optical 8X DVD Burner which you can customize if you want it to go the Blu Ray path. As for the other goodies, it will have an integrated HP TrueVision Webcam with built-in microphone, 5-in-1 digital media reader, will have a pre-installed, Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit edition w/ MS Office Starter 2010 kit plus a Walmart exclusively designed garden dream graphics. With a high definition 14.5″ LED BrightView display, you’ll have the ease of portability to take it with you wherever you need to go. The AMD VISION Dual Core Processor, tons of memory and a large hard drive will make sure you’re well-equipped to take on the most challenging of tasks in style.

The design is an exclusive to Walmart and in the first look itself you are going to fall in love with the colors that the device will bring to your room if at all it is brought there. A brilliant and vibrant palate of colors helps bring the spirit of the season to the piece, with a beautiful use of design elements not only on the outside, but inside it as well. Playful flowers and butterflies grace the design and lend a never-ending sense of Spring while bringing you the technology and features you have come to expect from both HP and Walmart.

The question though still remains will you go for a floral design with somewhat cut short features or will you like to stick with the more conventional design features that modern day laptops are supposed to have. The device is tagged at a pretty heavy price of 598 USD which will also go against the device favor when it comes to comparison, however here are the features of the device if you like a compare:
