And the winner of the "Which Notebook Should Travis Get For School?" contest is....

The HP Pavilion HDX

This is a serious notebook that was picked for me to use. I am curious why people didn't vote for the ASUS. However I a fan of HP. I think (in my personal opinion that HP makes one of the best home, office, or media pc's on the market. Price wise that is. I have owned three. The first was a Pavilion 1210ze Entertainment Notebook. It was okay for internet browsing which is what I wanted it for.
The next was a more recent Pavilion Dv6000 Budget Notebook. It was a very impressive notebook with a super nice screen(15.4) I was impressed but didn't need it for my early experiments that were soon to follow.It was however a great buy for under 1g.
I now have a Pavilion a305w desktop. It has been tweaked alot and is still standing. Although I do not use the standard monitor. I use a TriGem 15. It does what I want it to.
None of those however compare to the Pavilion HDX in no way. You might say why would he need a notebook that size for school? You guys voted and this was the winner. So here are the specs of the notebook that I will be ordering shortly.

*Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium (32-bit)
