They claim it's a build to order, when I have the exact specifications and everything. So I just bought a new laptop. If anyone needs parts! Let me know. I have a x1040us. Everything works perfectly fine except the video card. I am willing to sell parts for CHEAP! I just wanna get rid of this crappy and expensive POS. Thanks!
Not that im trying to defend HP or anything but its possible that they were unaware of the design problems. If they didnt know its unlikely you will ever get retribution ever.
Also i recommend putting the x1000 for sale in the "For Sale/Wanted" thread. Im sure someone will want it... Things like, Optical drives, screens, cpu's, memory, hard drives, etc are compatible with other machines...
