HP Pavilion HDX (Intel Core 2 Duo T9300) review: HP Pavilion HDX (Intel Core 2 Duo T9300)

Review Sections

HP backs the system with an industry-standard one-year warranty, which seems stingy for a product that costs so much. Moving up to a three-year plan with accidental damage protection is $329, and might be worthwhile for your sizable investment. Toll-free telephone support is available 24-7 during your warranty period, and the HP support Web site includes one real-time chat with a tech rep as well as an extensive FAQ and documentation section.
