OPINION:
We all know Core2Duo is an old processor, but not the type this baby is equipped with, capable of doing all that daily computer needs of yours from desktop publishing; CorelDrawing to watching movies even at 1080p despite not having an HDMI port to display Pro Evolution Soccer on that beautiful flatscreen of yours. Tsk! Yes I am saying this chocolate can run PES2009-2013 nicely at a decent resolution, and if you're the type who's just breaking into video editing, this is your best bet regarding that very tight budget of yours.

[size=20pt]HP ELITEBOOK 8530p[/size]
PROCESSOR: Core2Duo T9600 @ 2.80GHZ

PRICE: N42, 000
QUANTITY: 35 (7 left)
OPINION:
This contender to the EliteBook 6930p is in some respect better than some core i3s laptop irrespective of their power efficiency. At 15.4", spotting a resolution higher than that of my personal core i7 HP, this grizzly bear is ready to devour most task you throw at it. With its 5 USBs it's the ideal model for those who have reason to plug every available USB devices to their system from your printer, modem, bed scanner, wireless mouse, game pad, usb-to-phone cable charger etc


[size=20pt]HP G62[/size]
PROCESSOR: Core i3-350M
HARD DISK: 320GB
RAM: 2GB
OS: Windows 7
PRICE: N43, 000
QTY IN STOCK: 2 left
OPINION:
Equipped with 2 Logical cores running @ 2.27GHZ this beauty is more than suitable for basic computer needs, it will run your usual Mircrosoft Office package with ease, while multitasking on other application such listening to your .mp3 musicals on Windows MediaPlayer. Given it's GPU technology it will run PC-games like Need4Speed, FEAR, DOOM-3 smoothly.


[size=20pt]HP ELITEBOOK 8440p[/size]
PROCESSOR: Core i5 520M @ 2.40GHZ

SCREEN SIZE: 14.0"
DISPLAY RESOLUTION: 1366 x 768
PRICE: N53, 000
OPINION:
Now this hog is what you want if your pocket money isn't enough to grab you that core i7 you've been so desirous of. This core-i5 equipped Elitebook from HP is packed with the hardware features more than an average Nigeria user requires, at N53K with a whooping 750GB SATA HD, coupled with a firewire and an HDMI port, well it's more than a bargain.


[size=20pt]HP ELITEBOOK 8460p[/size]

FIREWIRE: YES (for NLE)
SCREEN SIZE: 14.0"
DISPLAY RESOLUTION: 1600 x 900
PRICE: N56, 000
OPINION:
Okay, if the 8440p above isn't enough to slack your computer taste, then this beast is the highest core i5 we've got for you in store, at 1600 x 900 resolution driven by an Intel HD 3000, I bet it will run PC games that are quite nore demanding than F.E.A.R., Far Cry 2, I am talking of PC games such as Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Pro Evo Soccer 2013 (at full screen low res), Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Ghost Recon - Advance Warfighter 1 and 2, etc, and if these can run all those and more, why won't it render your 3D animation scenes/image in a timely manner?, moreover watching an high-def content on this laptop is more or less superb. Enough said, peeps are rushing these laptops, buy yours now while it last.

Biggest lie ever. Android phones do get viruses.



It also removes your manufacturer's/seller's warranty and protection against viruses.

To the second comment, you're wrong Mhen! I rooted my Android mobile without voiding its manufacturer warranty. I still get OTA updates and it still reads the warranty code for me, date of purchase and other data. Reason : I rooted my phone without unlocking the bootloader. It's way better than the other method where you gotta unlock your bootloader. No security threats whatsoever. My data are intact. No phishing. :-)

[b]in a wierd way, you are the ignorant one here.. all your post though... you realize that avast would see any. bat file as a virus?? meanwhile a bat code extensioncan be a programming language that helps, but because avast doesn't know the extension it sees it as a virus? .. same applies to. tar extension, .sys, .bin.. look closely under my pics, thats the extensions i enabled the avast to detect as virus, i can decide to remove the .ink extension and avast would stop seeing any. ink extension as a virus, same applies to all other extensions... root acess has nothing to do with avast or virus or what not.. root allows a user to alter or modify the Android system partition to any thing the user so desires.... with root you can easily detect any bad system file and edit it.. but without root the avast you so highly praise is only limited to USER DATA PARTITION, and can't save one from SYSTEM DATA PARTITION if a bad file or corrupt file gets in their.. avast doesn't cure virus or get rid of virus, avast restricts some certain extensions from getting into your phone if it doesn't recognize it or sees it as a malware, it doesn't make the file a virus.. it means avast devs simply don't want the user taking risks... STOP DOING THIS.. STOP EMBARASSING Nathan2222[/b]

Who should stop embarassing themselves?
The guy who provided links to websites showing you the security risks of rooting your Android phone i.e. me?

OR

The guy who blabbed on about certain issues with avast! in relation to Windows and even foolishly went ahead to post photos of the display of his PC OS, and as if that wasn't enough, he also decided to make baseless assumptions on what kind of file the anti-virus deleted i.e. you.

------------------

avast! deleted an executable file (.exe) from my mom's Android, not a .bat, .tar, .sys, .ink and sure as hell not a .bin.

guy, this tread is a waste of time, ... so if the smart guy can extract a password from a rooted phone (let's go with your impossible logic)

so , the smart guy can't root an Android phone ? if your phone is not rooted

you see, your tread is so baseless.

the best way of security is to encrypt your phone and also don't let smart guys like me handle it.

u know nothing

Really? Let's see:

- I knew that Android, just like every other OS, is susceptible to malware.
You didn't.

- I knew that rooting your Android makes it more susceptible to malware, and in most cases, voids your warranty.
You didn't.

- I knew that a statement such as "all the links u provide dnt tell me how android can contact virus." is as silly as saying "I have no idea how viruses work"
You didn't, and based on that statement means you have no idea what a virus really is.

So if I know "nothing" like you said, you are literally an empty vessel.

What am about to share many of you dont know. This is the real disadvantage of rooting your andriod phone.

From my experience of using android phones the only disadvantage of rooting i have observed is that, Rooting removes the protection and security of an andriod phone. When i say ''protection'' i dont mean, protection against virus, becus andriod phone dont contact virus.

When i say it removes the protection, i mean, yr privacy protection.
Last week i was using a friend's rooted android phone, so i Decided to do some experiment and i went into the root section of the phone. I did some things and like magic i got the password of his yahoo mail, gmail and Facebook account. Since then i knew android phones has no security.

If i hold any rooted phone, i can get the password of the person's Email, the person's conversation ( like 2go, facebook conversation) and even the person password to all social network.

If you use some banking apps like diamond bank app on a rooted phone, its a big risk to you, becus a tech expert can easliy get yr bank infomation and and stuffs like dat.

So rooting yr phone depends on what you use the phone for, if u jst wanna customise yr phone, play hd games, delete unwanted sys apps and minimise yr data usage, u can root yr phone but BeWare Of Hackers....


CRAP CRAP CRAP
A banker could get your phone details if you root your phone??
Cone do you think you're talking to your village people?
How on earth does root access to system files concern an online banking app?

Next, you used your friends phone and you got all his passwords. Wow. You're a genius. But you didn't tell us if he used a password saver that remembers his passwords or if you actually hacked yahoo mail for Android (then I'll call you a big liar)

He was actually saying the truth, making you the village illiterate talking crap.

From here

This all changes when you run an application as root. The application is no longer running in a sandboxed area – it has access to the entire system. An app with root permissions can read other apps’ data

...

The full system access means that malware could potentially exploit root access to do much more damage than it normally could. Once an app is granted root access, it can do anything – run a key logger in the background without telling you, extract your account information from other apps, or even mess up your device by deleting critical system files.

Lol.

Nigga please.
If you're talking whiz kids who can check system flaws and loops in nano seconds then quote me.
That dude certainly didn't.


Oh and by the way your article isn't related to what you just said about system apps. Being able to get root access to files doesn't make it all susceptible to sudden password hacks.

Iphones that are even secure and not rooted get hacked all the time
Rooting is just bootloader access so what's the big deal anyway.

I'd think a multibillion dollar company would be more interested in hacking companies and/or competitor's products than one of their own, especially when they don't need to.
