I too am waiting to hear the initial reports on 9280 / 9290 - but it may be a while before some reviews show up., as these are both new models and have been out just about a week or so now.
The thing to watch out for is the Mobo brand and type - if its the same as was used in the previous series (and is riddled with problems) or has been replaced with a different one - fingers crossed, i am waiting......

I too would like to buy an e9280t with Windows 7 but want to know that the (freeze/lockup - motherboard) problem everyone else is having is resolved before laying out that kind of cash.

As an owner of a e9150t I emailed Pegatron regarding the MOBO problem in our systems. They sent me back this email.
I’m sorry to say that unfortunately, though our engineer have struggled this problem for weeks, we are not able to find the root cause.
So we have no solution yet.

I checked the available specs on the HP site and it lists pegatron IPM TB-TK as the mobo for the 9280. How long ago was it that you got that sorry email? You would think that if HP is aware of the mobo problem they would contract for a new mobo supplier.
I got that email about a week ago. Yeah you would think they would get a new supplier but apparently not. The IPMTB-TK is the same board that we have. If I was going to buy now I think I would go with a custom builder like Puget systems or whatever. I would have to pay more but how much is peace of mind worth?
I have heard that Pegatron is stepping up their quality control so who knows. If you have the patience to wait it out go for it. If not do what you have to do.

I have a unit that locks up. Until I found this thread (today) I thought it was either just my computer or just something I had done. Now I know that I am far from alone..... I feel silly about having spent hours (on several occasions) with HP Tech Support chasing down dead end solutions.
I want to vent to HP. What is a good email address to use please?
