      hi shamsudinladha,
      this laptop is cool.but if u want 2 instal XP its quite tedious as most HP laptop does not support Windows XP.
      other than that its really nice.
      this weekend im planning 2 instal high end games n video s/w to test the graphics stuf. will post it later about graphics card.
      n thanks 4 stopin by my post.

    I am planning to buy dv 4 1242 tx which costs around 54k. Would u plz let me know abt da performance.

    thnks in advance..

      hi Manoj,
      this laptop is gud in performance.
      i tried playing few games like nfs most wanted,counter strike. the performance is ok.
      but pls note tat some drivers for windows XP is not available n wont work properly.its better 2 hv vista in it.
      and HP has some default s/w like HP Media Smart tat loads while startup which makes it a bit slow.
      other than tat its a gud choice.

      and dont forget to update “Vista Service Pack2” once when u bought the laptop.

    thanks a lot for your reply Bala,
    As mainly i will be using this laptop for flash,flex and some other database stuffs. I have been to a couple of showrooms in hyderabad and i doubt they provide SP2 but vista premium. Only i am quite confused about the display 14,1. please share your experience with this laptop or pros and cons. It costs around 54 k here.I am planning to get it by today evening.

    I came throug some other models also around 45k with almost same configuration but with AMD and ATI graphics, as i m not so sure about these both two dont want to take a chance.

    Please suggest your points regarding the same,

    i hv not tried flash n flex in my machine.
    but i hope it shud be performing well.
    n one drawback is, it has 5400 rpm, it wud be better if the hard drive has 7200 rpm.

    and regarding screen size, 14.1 inch is wat i prefer,cos laptop shud b compact,
    but those who work in design may need a bigger its ur choice..

    if ur budget is offordable, y dont u go 4 a processor wic has more thn 2.0 ghz n has l2 cache of 8mb?

    i wud prefer intel rather thn amd.
    n dont bother abt sp2. u can update it from internet after buying. sp2 will increase around 20 gb of ur hard drive free space…

    all the best dude. decide n buy a gud laptop.
