    Hopefully a bit of Apple will rub off on HP and HP'll start making good printers :D

    I kid, but it's just that HP will start bundling iTunes on their computers and market a special iPod with an HP look to it.

    I don't understand this partnership. HP has pretty bad Mac support. If they're really going to have a relationship then maybe HP will write OS X drivers for some of their scanners. That might be too much to ask.

    Modern HP gear has some excellent mac drivers. Their tech support don't know Jack (call Apple - they cab help more).

    I have a DJ5550C - nice - really. I also have an iPAQ 4350 - excellent build quality. And they are a good plastic build = lower cost = better for competition.

    I think apple will be selling the hiPods to HP at wholesale price - or whatever they charge Apple Centres for them.

    I have an compaq notebook(really an HP, its just marketed as a campaq. It came in an hp box with hp instruction manual.)

    This notebook is a centrino and quality wise it was far superior to my brother ibook. It just felt sturdier and more rugid.
    I know it might be better to compare it to a power book, but we did not have one of those lying around.

    I still wish i would have bought a mac though. Ah till next time.
