We fully understand that the market for 18.4-inch gaming laptops
is a niche one, so we suppose this all makes sense from a business perspective, but still -- we can't help but shed a tear. HP's beastly, benchmark-smashing HDX 18
(and HDX 18t) has been forcibly removed from the outfit's website, with even cached links leading to a customization page turning up "Sorry!" portals. The marginally smaller HDX 16 remains alive and well, but it seems as if the 18-inch dv8
is your only option now when selecting a larger-than-life lappie from the folks at HP. Gotta keep keepin' on, we guess.
