That parallels my experience with my DV9000 - precisely. I can't believe
how good it is.

Mind you, HP has a habit of changing specs every time the wind blows in
a different direction. A friend, on my recommendation, bought a DV9000
couple of months after I did and everything had changed - I couldn't get
non-free drivers for his nVidia graphics card and I couldn't get his
sound card to work at all. I'm waiting for the next version of Kubuntu
in the hope that it'll have all that stuff.

But mine is a dream.
