    As we "speak" I'm on a HP Pavillion dv8000 laptop. It's been fantastic, except for the keyboard, but I use a fullsize USB keyboard (Compaq by the way) at my desk.

    This HP has been solid ever since, and the widescreen dv8000 is great for movies on airplanes... I have the XP "Media Edition" which has it's bugs, but you can shut down the processor while watching a movie... saving battery life.

    Good stuff

    Jeff

    Well, it's all hooked up and I am currently typing at you from my new HP. Only issues are with my ISP, it won't give me my email. And some of the text is hard to read, it seems a touch blurry. Otherwise, good to go. I think I'll eventually fix the blurry text issue by pressing enough buttons.

    Your text probably appears to be blurry BECAUSE YOUR MONITOR IS LARGER THAN THE TELEVISION I HAD IN MY LIVING ROOM UNTIL 2002!!!

    Actually, it's only certain color combinations. Like the text on the background here. So some issue with the colors I have yet to figure out. But this is one darn huge computer screen! LOL!
