You will need to be a little more specific. The Hp 2000 makes many sub-models. The most important things that I would compare are Screen size, RAM, hard drive space, HDMI included, numeric keypad, and processor speed/power. Also, I would look at the reviews of others who have purchased the laptop that you are interested in.

The HP model ur looking at has a 320 GB Hard drive, this one has 500gb. The processor on this one is dual core (supposed to be a plus).

This one has Win7 64 bit home edition, the other has Win 8. But there's an option to upgrade this one to Win 8 pro later for about $15.
Take note the audio on this laptop sounds poor

I tried making one without the USB drive and there was no reaction from the computer, like it was waiting for the USB. If there's a way to do it with DVDs there should be some instruction for it.

you need to have a minimum 32gig usb drive, or sd card. I expect you can back files up on dvd's as well as there is a burner.Also, I saw standalone backup storage drives in-store that stated they could be used as well.

Yes. the graphics card is much better than they portray. I play HALO and COD and it runs without any lag and graphics look just like xbox or ps3.

The link will resolve your first question as well.
