Looks good and works fine but lacks quick support for some issues
on March 19, 2007
This laptop has great screen resolution and is light enough to be considered really mobile. There are also a number of power options that support reasonable battery use times when an outlet is not available. To really use Vista Premium another 1G RAM and a better graphics card would be useful.
The plug on the power adapter(ceramic inside)can break under normal use but will be replaced by HP under the warranty. However, the adapters are on backorder and delays of three or more weeks are being experienced right now. (This may change - it may be an original production problem).
The black ZEN cover looks nice when clean. However, it picks up smudges all the time. There is a cloth provided by HP with the laptop that keeps it clean.
The ability to scroll with the touch pad is a great attribute and makes internet use more rewarding when a mouse is not an option. It can also make other uses - such as writing and editing with MS WORD - a more productive experience.
