Glad you think its funny. Laptops by Dan Ackerman Dec 19, Debuting just ahead of CESthe updated two-in-one gets a premium redesign and improved pen functionality. A set of 6 blank CD’s are included so that you can burn the recovery discs yourself. Yup, Does it have great tech support: 7422ggx was completely disturbed this.

The machine itself plus the power supply and any extra batteries you may want to haul around will cause you a lot of pain in a shoulder bag. They burned one disc while I was there and said there wasn’t anything wrong with it, but it wouldn’t play on any of their players in the store.

I also noted that there are no CPU temp monitoring and fan control in the Bios.

The first thing I did when i saw the recovery partition was to Run Kill disk, then Format and reinstall Windows.

Then the laptop started to breakdown. I am not sure about the recovery process or backup recovery disk. Quite an expensive way to make a rock garden.

The machine is not able to be updated. Hope this helps in your decision process.

Everything else is excellent, in my opinion. I too brought this same machine it is excellent. At one point in time one of the techs I was talking to informed that she could not help me unless XP home was put back on the computer and that she had other customers calling and she needed to talk to them, Guess I am not a customer, f I wasn’t before I really am not one now.


You are posting a reply to: Not only that but how the factory configured the OS is awful, it makes the system seem slow during bootup. I had called up about the recovery discs, and I explained to the tech that I deleted the partition and formatted the drive.
