I work for an HP reseller and the work I get through my channels is that
this is available in some of Europe and most of Africa. This is not in
The States yet, no definite plans to get it over here.
I would suggest heading to Ubuntu Linux's website
They have a customized CD for HP laptop support.
I've got a NX9600 with Ubuntu on it. 5.04 worked great, but I was never
able to get my ATI video card 3d support working, and I had to use
NDISWrapper to get the Broadcom wireless to work.
With 5.10 the 3d support workes GREAT. I'm still using NDISWrapper for
my wireless, but that's the same no matter the distro.
