I dunno... you might consider that the nw9440 is pretty hot, and very in demand. There's a hot deal until 10/31 where you can get a 9440 w/1Gb, C2Duo T7200, 80HD/7200 + 19 " flat external monitor, + NAS dock with 160/7200 + adjustable notebook dock stand + keypad / mouse for $2799. Moreover, they'll ship that shit for free. When you add up and compare, you'll be hard pressed to beat that with any other HP notebook approaching the capability of the nw9440. Whatever... good luck. BTW, you can get a nw9440 on the HP refurb site... it's a core duo version 1, 1GB, 80/5400. Price is $1749, but they will let it go for at least $1662. I called about it once. OTOH, it only has 1 yr warranty, so by the time you add more warranty, you're in the range of a hot nx9420. I'm gonna go pour some more vodka...
