    Welcome,

    eBay is primarily the last source, occasionally on a Craig's List ... my standard caveat on anything refurbished.

    As you are now privy to, it is probably the most amazing 'laptop' yet created; I will likely never part with any of mine and most of us feel fairly similar, I have my fill so I'm not gonna' be in competition with you, however many here will be - good luck in your search. Consider the price spectrum is apparently $600 (entry level specs and in need of repair) - $1,800 (all original and pristine with top of the line components).

    I want to agree with you because all sounds the same and I have healthy hearing, but I'm going to retro-bios just in case. Okay, how do you do that again?......... (just kidding)


    Please anyone also post whether going back to Bios 40E from 41E made a difference (in anything)

    Why is a slot-drive a no-go?

    No bezel. So it would be raw and open.

    Yes, on one of my HDXs FarCry2 would crash on F41. No such problem with F40 both before and after going back to it..

    I've got my Momentus XT installed and all seems well. Am having trouble finding an HD tray to put the old one in slot 2. Does anyone have a link to a good tray?
    TIA

    Yes, the HDD caddy for the HDX is the exact same one as those used on HP Compaq 6910, 6910p, 8510, 8510p

    You can find them on ebay: Compaq 8510p caddy items - Get great deals on Computers Networking items on eBay.com!

    Note: just added this info to first page for others. :)
