Don't Know why I bought this

  1. I went into CompUSA today and there it was. (It is dangerous for me to go into a computer store to waste some time) Wasn't really looking for a
    new laptop, but I think the price was right. $799 after rebates.

    HP DV9207US

    Here is the link

    Came with tv tuner, ear phones, web cam built in, nvidia go 7600, and 1.73 cpu. Needs more RAM. Another gig should be about $100.

    If I keep it and don't give it to one of my kids, I'll need a new camera bag since
    it is 17 inch screen.

    I still do not like windows vista, but maybe it will grow on me.

    I had an HP years ago and got good service out of it. In fact my son still has it. We will see about the photo editing abilities of this one.

    I did a similar thing when I bought an HP dv6275us. It also came with a digital/analog TV tuner. It works so well, I cancelled my cable TV. Over-the-air digital HDTV is great!

    Have you given your's a try?

    WOW that's a great price Ray! In HK that costs about $1200!

    Yea, all you need is another G od RAM. Vista needs RAM.

    Update us on the stability of the video system. I think nVidia is having a hard time with its Vista drivers.
