For my personal, i like HP Pavilion dv2910us more. The Intel Core 2 Duo T5550 processor is not bad compare with dv2940se's AMD Turion X2 dual-core. Also, the price is better than dv2940se, dv2910us only $629, but dv2940se is $749. May be you can find some reviews about them at this ditital product review site.
