Mobility Guru has
spent no less than 35 pages dissecting HP's new dv8000z laptop, a monster of a unit with a 17-inch display. The verdict
is mostly good, with the laptop getting high-marks for its desktop-like keyboard and all the extra stuff that HP was
able to fit in thanks to all that extra space (even a remote control hidden in the PC Card slot). The dv8000z also
includes two 2.5-inch hard drives, although they only run at 4,200 rpm. It loses a few a marks, however, for the
underpowered ATI Radeon Xpress integrated graphics, and the lack of one of the only things it ought to have: an
integrated TV tuner. Prices start at around $1000 direct from HP.
