    I just realized, this touchpad has multitouch! I have been randomly zooming in and out of web pages (like CTRL + scrolling) and it was because my index finger was resting just above the touchpad button on the touchpad itself, and my other finger was trying to move the cursor up and down. WTH why don't they advertise it as multitouch!!!???

    As I think most of you dont know Intel's IDA technology so I decided to post this:

    http://www.cpu-world.com/Glossary/D/Dynamic_Acceleration_technology.html
    --
    Intel Dynamic Acceleration technology (IDA) is a feature that boosts CPU performance when the CPU is running single-threaded applications. This is achieved by temporary increasing frequency of one CPU core when another CPU core is idle, i.e. when the second CPU core is in Deep Sleep or lower power state.
    --

    high end cpus like T7xxx support this. For newer cpus check on the intel website if the cpu supports it.

    You can check with CPU-Z and you will see that if the cpu supports IDA and if it's enabled in the BIOS that the cpu freqency will go above the default freqency for a period of time.

    I was sooooo close to making death threats over the phone, that or requesting the address of wherever they "fix" them and turning up with the laptop and beating the technician over the head with it.

    a while back i was gonna get 1 of the 1530's too. back then they were dishing them out with the 45nm T8x00 series dual core chips. i dunno why they stopped those & took a step backwards.

    Got a bit of a problemo with my dv3t guys, and I was wondering if you could help me out.

    Whenever I use headphones, with all of the sound cranked to the max, I can barely hear ANYTHING. I did some perusing around, reinstalled the sound drivers, and triple checked all of the settings. HP says on their support site that the most common problem is not using powered speakers, and that any computer built after the year 2000 requires powered speakers, or the sound will be too quiet. I swear to God if they use that excuse when I call they will get an ear full from me.

    Any ideas guys?

    Hey Danish, I am not sure about the headphone issue, but I know that the newer laptops have some pretty crappy sound. One remedy to that problem is to purchase a good set of usb powered headphones. It gets the sound and power right from the usb jack. I have THESE, and they are just fricking awesome man!!!
