HP 16" Laptop from Newegg only $500 + Free shipping! Also, you can get another $50 off with a newegg rebate. Though I must mention that the rebates on Newegg are notorious for not going through.

3GB RAM
320GB HDD
2GHZ Intel Dualcore Processor
HDMI Out (hook up to HDTV)

Just thought I'd give you guys a headsup!

And no taxes (in NC at least I think).

It's why you just reload it with XP.

:D

BTW, I have an iMac (OS X), PC (XP) and Laptop (Vista). Vista isn't that bad anymore. The Premium home edition combined with SP1 is actually useable. Of course, I'm waiting impatiently for Windows7 before I upgrade my desktop.

Windows 7 is going to be awesome. I tried the beta, and it was already way ahead of Vista.


Besides that though, I've had bad experiences with HPs. They tend to break or have numerous problems.

Just like everything else, I think your mileage may vary. I had an Acer that I hated, but many people love them. I currently have a 17" HP laptop that I love. I'm pretty rough on it and it still performs great. Low heat as well.

I think that Vista = WindowsME and Windows 7 = Windows XP.

i've also got a 17" HP. it has worked like a dream from the beginning, and HP has really good tech support. i like their online chatroom support because i hate calling people.

it just overheats because it's full of dog hair and i stripped the screws on the bottom so i can't clean it out.
