Upgrading the RAM was easy as pie, as both slots are located on the underside of the laptop, one screw away. On the body itself, the only place I can produce some minor flex through standard pressure is right at the top middle near the screen. I can twist the screen to produce rippling, and push it from behind to get the same effect, but the pressure required is such that unless you drop a book on your LCD you should be fine. I did notice that the lid immediately picked up several fingerprints though. The keyboard itself is quite nice to type on.

The MAC addresses of the Ethernet cable and the wireless interface WiFi are written on a label on the side of the box. To setup a wireless network connection, you must be within range of a wireless Access Point. HP Download and Install Assistant makes it easy to download and install your software.
The wireless interface is one of the few areas where I quite like Vista so far. Under the hood of my p is the latest Core 2 Duo revision, clocking in at 2.

If the status of Bluetooth is not on, click on turn on. I can read text horizontally to 90 degrees, but of course the colours wash out. The only downside is that it takes a few more clicks to get to the advanced wireless bluetooth when compared to XP.

However as with all notebook speakers they are tinny, with no bass and very poor highs. I know there are several frustrated souls on the NBR forums who just recently received their customized laptops, but who ordered far before I did.
Please verify your product is powered on and connected, then try again in a few minutes. See your browser’s documentation for specific instructions. She answered all of my questions even though the p was not even available in Canada at the time.

In all honesty, after spending a summer reading about new generation laptops running excessively hot and loud, I was worried about the p. The system hiccupped a few times in the massive underground portion of Mars City, especially the maintenance areas, but was relatively playable inside the compound.

Technology releases are generally delayed up to two months from their US release dates. When Windows detects a wireless network for the first time, it should prompt you with a Wireless networks detected message in the notification area of your taskbar.

But don’t log off until you have installed all your programs for example the Bluetooth software explained below. First off, I dealt with HP Canada several times before buying. As I mentioned earlier, the first boot was uh, not a very good experience.
In regards to the quality of the LCD, I quite like it. Thus at first my shipping price was quite low, but suddenly leapt upward at the last minute of the ordering process as the weight and origin of shipping were actually taken into account.

The only qualm I have is that the shipping prices on their site are automatically calculated based on weight and nearest warehouse.
