    We've got something I would estimate at 300 hp laptops, and except for an excessive fail rate last year they're quite okay. Our new i5 model's particularily good. For the first time it seems hp has put a decent harddrive in them too, and they're very easily serviced (only business models mind you. the 'elitebook' and pavilion ones are not to be recommended to anyone.
