Re: HP Pavilion N5270 (info requested)

It's a brand new model. I was looking to see if I was going to be the first
brave soul, or if someone else had beat me to it. I was curious if anyone
else had bought one, and played with it. Looks like I'm going to be the
first. Oh the joy. It's not that I mind being the first, but I was hoping
to get some tips befor I being playing with it. The main thing I was
looking for, which might be in the user manual, is nic and modem info,
since they are both built in.

BTW here is the link to the product itself. If anyone wants to know, I
should have it up and running in about a month (still need to order vmware)
I hope.



Oh, one more thing, the stickers on it says it's designed for windows me.
Not sure what parts yet, and I don't want to call hp just yet.
