    Commented on your video of the same laptop before. Total dissapointment, nothing of what was promised really.

    I'm a bit of an HP nut, and this is the machine I wanted to replace my 2133 with, but the poor battery life killed it for me. That was why I was replacing the 2133 in the first place. Went with a Samsung NC20 in the end.

    Note that the dv2 is being replaced with the dv2z, which has a dual-core CPU and comes with the 6-cell battery as standard.

    The dv2z is also cheaper than the dv2 was in the US, starting at $599. Probably start at £599 over here

    Remind me why the laptop you compared it to cost less than half the price?

    Why am i subscribed to this thread without posting in it?

    It really is a promising platform, if they reduce the price a little lot...

    To see which benefits, if any, spending double the money would provide. Also, the Wind fits into the same ultra-portable laptop genre.
