HP has got to increase the quality of its notebooks...the chassis and heat issues are completely unacceptable even thought they offer great configuration for the price.
Focus on mobile with Android for now at least...and focus on enterprsie services...should be enought to pull HP out of deep waters

Not with all the models though, my dv6 notebook which is 1yr old now, has been working decently fine, even though I've put it under lots of torture like kept it working for days, etc. Even the original battery still easily last for 3.5hrs. Almost like new.

I own a dv6 too...its with an AMD processor. I thought new gen cpus dont heat but i was wrong...and the cooling system on my notebook is sub-par and the vents are small too. Hp has got to take a cue from dell xps or sager for that matter on build quality

Oh.. mine is a 2nd gen i3. Never had heat prolems even while transcoding vids. But my friends' HP laptops face such problems, having older CPUs. I guess I am lucky!

I have a lenovo with an i3...cool as a cucumber and believe it or not being a business laptop I can do moderate gaming (AC Revelations on medium) and it still doesn't heat up. HP has lost pc market share considerably...they still sell well but I guess its not well enough

Well.. best luck HP.. I've always been using HP products for computing purposes.. since 2000. Owned 2 desktops and a laptop since then. All were rock solid.

What hp needs to do is sell the pc division. Just like IBM did.
