Another rant filled with bit--iness. But ends with something great. At least for me. Alright. I ordered an HP Pavilion tx2012us in May 2008. They had a one year warranty on the computer. But since May 2009, my HP has started to deteriorate. For example. 1. I have to change the viewing angle of the display to get both speakers to work. 2. When I close the laptop and carry it to go to a different room, there is a loud siren-like sound coming from the laptop. 3. When I open up the laptop, the latches that keep it closed stay up. 4. The vent is burning hot. At least 200 degrees. [Bought about 3-4 cooling mats only for them to break.] 5. The back USB (2) don't even work. 6. The tablet pen's buttons fell out. 7. The quicklaunch buttons aren't even operating. 8. My AC adapter frayed. [Had to pay 80 bucks for a new one] 9. The display isn't even standing upright now. [Costs $290 to fix and I'm not even going to bother.] It's like HP has a ticking time bomb on all computers you don't have an extended warranty on. Good news is. I'm getting me a MacBook Pro.
