They still ship all their notebooks with the optical drives limited to MultiWord DMA mode instead of UltraDMA mode. Be careful of buying HP notebooks.

No problems at all.When 7 worked, it worked well. I failed to see much advantage over Xp, if any.

If they are too smart, why did they not incorporate them in the O/S in the first place???
