I agree my 9302 is faultless, no exploding power suppliys or PSU (like my old Dell)

And BTW I work a 'HP company'

Re: why not Acer

3 years ago I bought 3 HP laptops, 2 of them developed screen problems within months. Within the past 2 years,I have bought 4 Acer Laptops, all work perfectly.

re: Why NOT buy Acer

I had the original Ferrari and apart from the ingress of excessive amounts of cat hair which clogged the CPU fan and made it overheat and switch off (repaired under warranty with no questions asked), it gave me no trouble at all. Sold it to a mate who's back at Uni doing a Phd and it makes the daily trek to and from home without complaint and also luckily for it, no cat hair.

Paris...'cos I bet she doesn't have all the problems that go with a hairy pussy.
