I just purchased the Hewlett Packard HP Pavillion a6110n. I have always liked Hewlett Packard products. What makes this different is the software. The new Vista software controls the computer and I would prefer to personalize more of my personal computer. Vista software is so new, that it still has a conflict with other programs. I am sure this will be worked out in time. This computer (in spite of Vista) is fast and efficient. It gets the job done. It also has a stylish look. I asked the retailer if it was possible to down grade back to Windows XP, they said no. The new computers are made for Vista only. Down grading is not possible. So I am extremely pleased with the hardware and not so pleased with the software. Overall, if I had to make the purchase again, I would. I enjoy Hewlett Packard so much, I bought a printer as well.
