    No, again not in hardware. The 9600 is the first mobile from ati to support dx 9 through the hardware. In which case you would have to get the zx5000 or the R3000T if you are really worried about it and want the full dx 9. Personaly unless you are a big gamer I wouldn't worry about it too much. But if you have the money the graphics will be current for a little longer in these.

    i looked into the r3000t, but i cant find them on the hp canadian site, only the american one. they are apparently sold here, but i dont know where!

    I emailed HP and they said ...

    "Yes, R3000t is similar to R3000 and comes under the same series R3000."

    So im not sure how to take it..does it mean the R3060CA I want to get, with the Mobility ATI 64MB Radeon 9200 can possibly have the 9600 version?

    I dont know how to differeniate all these different machines and series'. THeres even the r3000z series, but i think thats just with Athlon processors in them.

    I'm just trying to get the best for my money.. and the most i can fork out is 2400 canadian (that would be including taxes and such up here), so im really trying to figure out what is the better deal to get, and I dont have alot of time to decide either!

    I'm not sure if the R3000T is some NEW model that is coming out.. or if its just what i actualy am getting soon, but it goes by R3000 also.

    HP help pretty much sucks. for every good reply they give me, i get like 7 bad ones lol

    In the US anyway the R3000 has the max option of a 9200 and only the R3000T comes with either a 9200 or 9600 with the R3000z coming with the nVidia go440.
