Lots of Dell computers were in this settlement, too. Going to Dell would be a step backwards IMHO. I still think HP makes some good products, better than Dell at least. The whole problem was a faulty Nvidia chip. The bad thing is they all tried to cover it up, instead of issuing a recall, and just think, that is the way all other businesses work, The least expensive option. They thought they could get by just fixing the bad ones, and extending the warranty one extra year.
