~The keyboard is, in my eyes, perfect.
B. Beauvais
Although it was frustrating when I first found this problem, I was very relieved once I told by HP this was a known problem and it would be fixed shortly.
Anthony J. Frabotta
I would definitely buy this laptop again and recommend it to anyone who's priority is screen size/quality and performance over size and weight.

After using this laptop for over two months I am very impressed. There are a few drawbacks to be warned about though. Below is a breakdown of the positive/negatives I have found:

POSITIVES:
(1) Beautiful large 18 inch HD screen.
Graphic display is far better than I orginally thought. The display resolution is remarkable. It can be seen best by playing a BluRay movie (Recommend Iron Man and/or Dark Knight).
(2) BluRay player
See above
(3) Remote Control is very savvy.
Included can be used for multiple types of media (playing dvd's, scrolling through music & photos, etc.)
(4) Media card read that can recognize SD, XD, MMC & MS.
Comes in handy when you want to download pictures from a camera card, etc
(5) Look & feel of the case.
HP has used a great design and color scheme on this laptop
(6) Fingerprint Security reader signon.
Has an integrated fingerprint scan on the keyboard to validate the user before they are able to signon and use the laptop.

NEGATIVES (Have found only a couple so far but....)
(1) Hard to find a bag that it will fit in.
Everyone that sells this laptop, stipulates that it will fit in "any" 17" inch bag. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Be cautious when buying a bag. The actual length of this laptop is 17.25" inches. The majority of bags are made to fit no larger than 17.0" inches in length.
After searching I did find one bag I highly recommend. If looking check out the Case Logic 17" Classic Laptop Case. It securely fits a 18' inch laptop safely & securely.
(2)BluRay Player only played pre-2008 BluRay discs when first purchased.
You may need to download the latest HP Mediasmart software, as I did to play all BluRay discs (Read Below for additional info).

Verified Purchase
Purchased and shipped from Amazon. Apparently is has also been sourced elsewhere. As per someone else's review, when part of the initial personalization had a pulsing logo in the center, I was mesmerized. The screen is very, very impressive, and Internet photos on HP's AOL portal were magnificent.

It's big. Even the power supply/brick and power plug into the computer are over-sized.

I bought it because I wanted to be "wowed" -- I have aging HP laptops over 3 or 4 years old. (I bought them reconditioned direct from HP, because of presentation work a primary driver was name brand and a dedicated video card.) I returned a 17" lesser HP to Staples unopened as I justified the price increase on this model with more drive space, the subwoofers, and of course, a true HD screen which provides great real estate. It may prove to be useful in occasional presentation work as the world goes HD. I also have written music as a hobby using Reason software, and this has plenty of screen space, power, and hard drive space for 50-100GB of samples and music files and won't even sneeze. I don't have Adobe CS4 for Windows, but do own a Photoshop CS3, and again, the screen size on contemporary menu and tabbed software will be great.

Strange but true, my desktop is an aging G5 Mac (!) and this ALMOST makes me want to switch over to Wintel as my primary platform. I described this beauty as a "foldable desktop machine" to an associate. Time will tell as eventually I'll face the decision of a potentially serious change to an Intel Mac or see how well I adapt to this. (I gotta say though, those huge IMacs at Best Buy look incredible, but I'm spent out for a while.)

A few comments/constructive remarks: A backlight keyboard would be great.

I will begin with the screen, because if you are buying a 18.4 inch laptop, you are not buying it for portability. It is amazing, massive and hard to find a bad angle on. I had 4 friends watching a DVD on it, and they all could view it clearly and one asked if it was a blue-ray disk. It is that good. On the flip side, it is glossy as all sin. Like new MacBook glossy. Using this in the sun might just blind you. My concern with the gloss is color reproduction and stuff of that nature. I am not to the point where it is that important, and if given the choice of slightly "off" colors on this screen or the "truer" colors of an anti-glare screen that was smaller, I will pick this, hands down, everyday.

But you don't pick this computer to do work on, now do you? This computer is a entertainment POWERHOUSE. I will start with the gripes, and move on from there:

~It is too big. I said it. It is not a notebook you want to pack up and move all the time. I had a hard time finding a bag to fit it. If you are having a hard time wrapping your head around how huge this computer is, lay two pieces of computer paper long-edge to long-edge. This is just a touch bigger than that.
~Also, why on earth do the keys not light up? This is about the only thing I miss from my old computer, and it is even more upsetting when there is a row of back lit touch buttons above the keyboard. There is no excuse at this point. It obviously wasn't to keep the computer thin...
~Why do F9-F12 have the same functions as the touch buttons above? I would love to see some button to minimize all windows, switch to the flippy window mode, and maybe launch media center.
~The trackpad is about half as big as it should be. I need to lift my finger 4 times to go from the left edge to the right.
