As far as Hewlett Packard is concerned, not many people gave it a change to survive the notebook industry and was better off focusing on their top quality printers which is preferred in the market. Apparently, they are not yet giving up and this is proven with their continued contributions towards mobile computing today.
Overall, the HP Pavilion dv9700t is terrific. Any junkies fixated on high-end gaming or intense graphics/editing might find this computer lacking some muscle. For everybody else, it combines power, beauty, speed and solid design at a cost that can’t be beat.
