Summary: I bought one of these in November 2007. After 6 months the hard drive went and just after the warranty ran out the laptop packed in!! I have now discovered that the NVidia graphics card is the big problem. Google NVidia Defect forum and see what I mean.

Summary: needed to replace my aging Desktop recently, and narrowed my search down to HP and Toshiba. Just as I was about to take the plunge, Vista arrived, making my initial choice totally impractical. As I recall, the Pavilion Range is designed primarily as an entertainment Laptop.

Excerpt: HP PAVILION dv2500t DESIGN With its wavy-pinstripe imprint and glossy-black sleekness, the dv2500t demonstrates the HP Pavilion look perfectly. It shines beautifully, polished to a nearly pearlescent sheen. The touchpad looks more like a beautiful makeup compact lid than a pointing device.
Summary: I've found that this laptop is good enough for most of my use at home. It's used for Internet browsing, word-processing, blog posting as well as using with my ipod. My only gripe would be the touchpad. It doesn't have a good feel and is not very accurate. A bluetooth mouse would be ideal with this.
Summary: Let me first say that this laptop suits my needs. I have a desktop PC for power, speed, video editing, gaming etc - this laptop is not the fastest. The laptop itself is well designed and is packed with features and functionality.
Excerpt: I review this laptop because i believe that it combines a good amount of everything that you would look for in a versatile pc - brains, brawn and beauty. As a designated home pc, i find it still believable that it is a versatile mobile platform as HPstates.

Summary: I have an HP Desktop Computer and also Printer and have generally found their products to be reliable and of good quality. However, this computer is very well specified and ticks all the right boxes. It looks great and has an excellent screen and sound quality.
