    well are you sure its 5200? well i bought dv5118tx model,
    with following specifications:-
    t2300 1.66ghz, - core duo
    100gb, 1gb ram, go7400 512mb ram, dvd ram drive.
    15.4'
    well let me say its an awesome lappy, envy of all who see it, excellent display and sound. very good looking and fast lappy.
    though lenovo is also good. but in this case this lappy is an outright winner

    well i can say that heating effect is there only after 2 or so hours of continous games/..
    which i think is great..
    also there is no sound, only some times in a very quite environment when cpu is being fully utilised then the sound is slightly audible..

    its a piece of awesome beauty...
    go get it...

    Well if you need a laptop and wait for the price to fall, it becomes a vicious cycles waiting for the price to fall and you end up waiting and waiting.... :p

    I recently bought dv5200, yes it is dv5200tx, not 5118. It is newly released with Intel Core Duo T2250 1.73 Ghz processor. I'd say its very fast as CPU usage rarely crosses 40 % even with the most intensive of applications. The RAM is good too for normal usage. The graphics card has 256 MB dedicated memory though I does not have the feel of nVidia 7XXX GTX cards (desktop versions). You can use the BIOs to give 256 MB system memory for graphics which brings it to a total or 512 Mb graphics memory and 750 MB system memory.

    The sound driver and card dissapointed me with a few cracks now and then especially when resuming from hibernation. The hard disks too get heated up quite soon, reaches 45 - 50 degrees celcius even with normal operation. It shoots to 50+ very quickly when run a program which access the HDD quite often.

    All in all, the laptop is quite good and worth my money both for the sleek looks and amazing performace (for a laptop that is). :p
