I have a HP Pavilion dv9205us
seems to me about 12 to 13, maybe a little more. Don't buy one of these, it has a pad (as most do) to move around with your finger, unfortunately if any part of you hit that while you're typing, off goes the cursor to some place on the screen. I have messed with the quick-slow tap stuff and it's still a piece of junk with that metal pad. If we had not both been sick at the time of purchase, it would have gone back the next day! Other than that, it has HP's own junk that comes up right in the middle of the first thing that you want to work on, if you start stuff up asap as I usually do. Of course you don't get a CD or book, don't count the pamphlet that's "All you need to get started" and unfolds to about the size of a kitchen room table. The HD has been partitioned off to allow for a compressed Vista OS (What a piece of ****) every thing that we griped about having to answer more than once has one more confirmation step in it! I'm afraid to load an extra version of XP pro on it, since I bet half of it won't work! (All these are my (and some are my wifes) expierence with this device)
Good parts, yes, it has a beautiful screen, most buttons and stuff are well laid out and appears to have good hardware working on it, as we run it wireless, virtually since we got it out of the box. This is one thing I worry about not working without Vista..
I want a BOOK, my bathroom needs reading material! But really there are things that I have not been able to find in the on-line docs, that would have been if there would have been a book, I'm sure. There are little things in places that I've never seen before and no 'overview' that contains any of them. I have look for so many other things and finally went to bed on them that I still don't know how to turn the camera on!!! It also has a lite, how do you turn it on? All of these things are usually in the book, since someone takes a picture of it and they have arrows with numbers that some poor sole had to start at one place and go over the entire keyboard and associate it to a page or name (that it has a book (that's hopefully in the index (that the book has an index)))
The not sending you a CD or DVD (must cost a whole few pennies) for a reload if I have a HD failure, no book on the product (I would hate to see what happens when I need help with no internet connection). Would I buy one again if it had all the above? NO, that stupid metal finger control has me BI***EN a mouth full every time I use it.
You know they can do all the things above (to make it CHEAP!) but the simplest way, is when you open it up, there is a board the size of a pack of cigs connected to 90% of the weight of the laptop to cool the single chip! That would make it cheap and easy to fix. An upgrade, new chip simple... The chip would be very expensive until they made 5.087e+196!!!!
Sorry boys & girls, can't find the spelling checker here, thought it would fix the mispelling, but I'm tired and I'm not digging through the dictionary!
