i think, that all you will need to do is install the 2nd HDD into the 9700 and then load XP on to it. the 9700 should see it as a slave drive (or 2nd HDD on the system).
if your going to use XP more than vista, i would put XP in 1st...
well for some reason my ZD8000 will not charge, now the power adapter is fine, and im not sure if the battery went bad or the board. it all happened after my brother was try to plug in the moues in the back USb port, from what i think...
for what i looked at the nw8240 looks like crap. and i really would not pay that much for that laptop.
For me i have to like how the laptop/notebook looks like and what ard hard ware it's pushing too. before i pay any amount of money.
i just order the zd8000 w/ the following specs:
100GB hard drive
it should be at my work by May 6.
but that should be every thing that you will need to play just about any game. but I really can't wait to play...
