HP Pavilion dv9000z series – this is what i want for Christmas! it’s at the topmost on my Christmas wishlist, which only by the way, are peace on earth, food for the hungry, and an original NeverWinter Nights 2 DVD copy.
the HP website is offering this particular model for $859.99, already rebated. as far as i know, this is pretty cheap already. if converted to Philippine Peso (PhP), this baby would be around 43K. this is almost half the price of a similar model that a friend of mine recently bought. the going rate for that model here in the Philippines, a 14-incher, is around 70k PhP. that’s about 1,400 US Dollars.
i wonder what’s the catch on this one? hmmm.. . maybe it’s just on holiday sale? or maybe it’s only available in the US? then again it could only be available if you pay it in installments – 3 years!?
ok, so my current financial standing would utterly not permit me to get this notebook. boohoo.. . poor me! any sponsors out there? ey Mark Shuttleworth, Sir, buy me this notebook and i promise to install Ubuntu on it and delete all traces of Windows XP in the harddisk. hahaha.. .(joke!) ok can i just dual boot then? 😀
on a more serious note, i could like save at most 5K PhP per month starting this month. so 43,000 divided by 5000.. . that’s about 9 months in the making. this is not so bad. it’s like a woman getting pregnant (terrible comparison by the way). by then this model would be like those dinosaur bones shown in a museum. LOL.. .
all wishful thinking. i know. but then again it’s only a wish after all.. . as they say, “be careful what you wish for, it just might come true.”
