My first HP laptop was a old single core I bought new. My second one was a HP TX1420. It had a ton of bloatware on it,( turned out to be a waist of 1200 too and when the guys buy new stuff and bring it out to the rig theirs have been loaded too. Toshiba has a ton of stuff on them also. If they got it from best buy, best buy has all of there apps and stuff they put on it too. A new toshiba netbook from bestbuy a guy bought new had it two weeks before he got to the rig and was talking about how slow it was. I looked at it. 91 processes after turn on. I went on a deleting and tweaking spree. If you haven't used it yet try out the UWT. ULTIMATE WINDOWS TWEAKER for vista and 7. It has a lot of the hidden setting for windows in one place on a easy to use GUI interface. I have cut stock shut down time in half or more with it.

If you notice HP was trying to market them self with the slogan "The computer is personal again" Aside from "again" seeming to be a false statement (When did a mainstream manufacture ever offer a truly unique / personalized pc?) If you notice HP never really made them that personal either. The extent of this slogan / marketing campaign seems to be a couple of special edition pavilions and that's it. This campaign was going on right around the time that HP acquired voodoo pc. I have not really heard the slogan used recently so I am thinking that marketing campaign died with voodoo.

Well regardless good luck with it mr. blur.

The real question we all want to know here is how is it handling the porn?

Lack of blood flow causes things to fall off, so going limp is actually a good thing.
