I haven't heard anyone thats received
a dv9000z confirm this yet. Demo shows it, demo saying:"HDMI port - select models".
Select, or full featured models meaning to HP the Intel cpu'd machines if they do the same as they've done before
. Intel chipped machines being spec'd higher...
Just checked the Maintance and Service Guide.
On page 1-8 it shows a picture, but on page 1-9, item #7 it says:
" HDMI port(select models only)
Connects an optional audio or video device
such as a high-definition television, set-top
box, DVD player, or any compatible digital
or audio device.
Weird that HP is not playing this feature up... DVI /HDMI port enabling you to directly connect to a big screen tv/plasma, projector.. Or to a DVI computer panel. I think this is the FIRST DVI port on a HP consumer laptop so I find it very strange no real mention is being made of this new feature.
Pretty big news considering only a few other mfg's models on the market have it. (them costing I think about a $1,000more)
Graphics card section makes no mention of it either.
PS: When I made the comment I was joking.... of course for $500 more it's going to have a HDMI port standard. It's got to.... Of course that's going to be "On Select models only".
Dv6000 manual shows the HDMI port, it also having the wording "on select models" with no mention of the HDMI port on the "Demo".... Addtionally from posts I've seen from dv6000z owners (unless I've missed it) no-one has said their dv6000z came with an HMDI port and there is NO option to "add" that option when ordering so the HDMI port may indeed be only on the (t) series machines.
