    not too bad. hard as all hell to read because you posted every accessories that you are not getting. Overall sounds like a nice system. Personally I would look if they would install vista in 64bit instead of 32bit. I find that the 64bit tends to be better overall because it is an entirely new kernel where as the 32 bit has code shared with windows 98 that is still just lurking around. Also I have been running 64 bit for 7 months now with out an active virus checker and I have yet to get a virus. I Scan one time a month but have never had anything pop up.

    yah that's what I meant when I said it came out different. When I copied it, all those accessories weren't on the page.

    The thing is, it says it has an option for a Blu-Ray drive. However, I dont see it as an option.

    hmm... i've been running Windows since Windows 95 and haven't seen a virus yet. so, that's not a compelling reason to go 64-bit.






    to the OP, from my experience HP does not provide any media with their systems. you get a partition on your hard drive that you can make restore discs from, but it'll only get you back to what you started with. that means you can't do a fresh OS install. you can only reload the horrendous image that HP provides which comes with all kinds of garbage installed and running in the background. until they change that, i will avoid buying any HP computers.

    That doesn't bother me. I will wipe the system clean anyways and do my own Image. I get Vista Ultimate for $10 bucks, remember? That's why I always just get the basic home version of Vista.

    that's shitty. Dell gives you the option to install just the OS.
