Actually a supervisor told me a few weeks ago it would be released on 8/7 and he double checked his paper work. However I had to call today to ask a question about something (an accessory) and I happened to mention the DV9000Z to the rep and he told me "yeah I wish September would get here quicker then it is!" I'm like huh?
He said that is when it's being released. I told him that I was told by a supervisor a few weeks ago that it was 8/7, which surprised him. He put me on hold and then came back and said no, it will not be until September. So I'm really bumbed now!
I think what I'm going to do is wait until Monday, if it's not released I'm just getting the DV6000Z and I'm gonna be done with it!
Personally, I really don't want a 17" notebook (especially with the keypad being off centered because of the number keypad as well as the mouse being off centered as well.) But I was going to go with it because it had the HDMI output and a higher resolution screen option. But I can live without HDMI and higher screen resolutions.
I guess things happen for a reason
I'm not a gamer, so the graphics card will due just fine, it is Vista premium so it's all good.
Sorry I got everyone all excited but I was only going on what I was told a few weeks ago by the supervisor. It's quite possible what he told me was true THEN, but I guess HP has pushed it back farther.
