The one bug I have found is that with the utility installed the mute button on the Expansion Base uses the old hardware based sounds, but the volume controls on the Expansion Base produce the new sounds, not a big deal but something I noticed and found dv22500 little odd.

The Good Strong set of specs for the price; performance almost matches that of more expensive laptops; attractive The only item I despised on the DVt was the jumpy near useless touchpad, being left-handed I was constantly fighting with the settings trying to find the right sensitivity setting, as I was always making the cursor jump when pressing the left or right click button.

The design of the dvt has been very successful for HP and it is still arguably one of the best designs on the market.
