    Where did it go? I swear there was an HP ad where the Google ad is now! I know I wasn’t hallucinating. On this computer, if you don’t like something, just scroll around a bit and it will probably change.

    Interesting article but I think it’s bad taste to have an HP ad at the top of it, don’t you? Also, prices would have been useful if available.
