UPS delivered my laptop while ago. My stuff is still on there along with 751 emails! Lotta deleting going on soon. It seems HUGE after using that little tiny netbook! Well, 17" vs 10" - guess so. Much easier keyboard to navigate and can see everything on this screen. This makes it easier to post on here, check and write email, play Scrabble (couldn't see the whole board and my letters on that little netbook), type, and all that. Not easier to take place or move to other rooms, though.
After online research, this model is the Edsel of HP's. It's a 2007 HP Pavilion dv941. They knew it had problems and sent them out anyway for the customers to deal with. I googled it and read about all kinds of people who had the same problems with theirs I did with mine. They sent them for repair, got new motherboards, and then had the same problem again. Some didn't. They overheat and destroy things. I keep mine on a cooling pad but think this is a different kind of overheating but not sure. Anyway, I hope it will continue to work, and I'm still getting a Macbook when it's feasible.
