    tieing up in the court could cost Nvidia more money than is needed for this settlement. are we supposed to roll over and let them break the terms of the settlement agreement? we HAVE been waiting years. so what. a little more time is not going to hurt.

    stop crushing our hopes is my advice.

    Thank you for saying that. I don't see why anyone is telling us to just take the inferior replacements and be grateful for getting anything at all. Because I'm not grateful to pay 1200 dollars for a piece of crap computer and receive a subpar replacement three years later.
    Like you said, we've waited this long, we can wait a little longer to fight for our money's worth.

    Site Updated!

    Site Updated!!

    Site Updated!!!

    It is CQ56 in place of CQ50. No mention of any differences between the models you have on the home page.

    FAQ says as follows

    "If your affected computer is an HP tablet computer, you will receive an Asus EEE T101MT-EU17-BK notebook computer. For all other HP notebook computers, the replacement computer will be a Compaq Presario CQ56 computer."

    Still a disappointment for tablet guyz.

    CQ56 may be at least newer version than CQ50.

    doesn't look a whole lot different from the CQ50... Depending on the specific model, prices run from $388 - $440 at a reputable store. Up to $701 if you go to eBay (!?) or get it from England (!!??) I used the Google Shopping link.

    Reviewed as "a bit underpowered.....a good value for shoppers on a tight budget." Doesn't seem to be as universally despised as the CQ50, though.

    Still only 1/4 of the value of my dv9200 when it was new. And a downgrade from the 17" screen and 7200 RPM HDD.

    One more important update is

    "If you attempted to file a Replacement Claim between January 10 and January 22 and you were deemed ineligible, you are encouraged to submit your claim again"

    Yes, All compaq models are cheaper (lower quality), which is one of the main reason we paid more for a similar specs for HP model. Now Nvida is finding most cost effective solution. I know there is no model which is priced less than compaq. Still didn't understand why EEPC is selected for a Tablet.
