    Good for you Matsuda!
    I can't say enough about how much I love mine.
    Everything from the full size super sturdy keyboard to the amazing gaming and bluray and ability to upgrade in the future made this purchase a no brainer for me.
    I hope you have as muh fun with yours a I'm having with mine.:D

    I was close to choosing this laptop over the dv7t but I hated the backside to it. It just looked way to awkward/weird to me. I didn't like how it bends. I understand the purpose but to me it seemed a lil out of place.

    Whats the WEI for people who currently own it?

    the hinge is something really needing to get used to, the opening is easy enough but you have to pay attention when you close it. It's not as easy as traditional laptops, but it's still a nice hinge, a good portion of the laptop's weight is vested into the hinge, really heavy duty quality.

    There are articles and some posts in here that detail the upgrade of your CPU, HD and RAM.

    2.0 one of the moderators here posted about it awhile back:

    http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=169232&page=28

    The GPU is a little more of a challenge because it's soldered in, And you have size and compatability issues to consider.

    But if you take your time and you know what you're doing it can all be done.

    Time estimate on the CPU was about 4 hours though, which means it would take me 10:p

    Here's a link to the manual.
    Cheers

    No, those are fine. If you see 60's at idle, start to worry. Even though it's safe, 40*C is still pretty warm to the touch, it's unavoidable.

    Can someone confirm that Pavilon dv6xxx or dv9xxx hard drive brackets are compatible with HDX? I would like to know that before I will order it from ebay. Buying and shipping it to Poland will cost me $60 :(
