HP nc4200 review:

HP nc4200

The nc4200's parts-and-labor warranty covers the system for a long three years--better than most. You can also get toll-free tech support for the length of the warranty. HP's support Web site handily beats others we've seen and should become the standard by which others are measured. It provides the opportunity to chat live with a technician, and its knowledge base and software downloads are above par.
