what HP international site you are talking about? UK, US? In Portugal where I live doesn’t allow customize laptop, but I prefer to buy in European Union country to avoid high taxes from US.
Yesterday I sent a message to HP Portugal asking for drive specificatin: SATA, ATA, thickness, etc…
What I got was:
“HP welcomes your contact.
As noted in previous email remember that there is no laptop from HP that is certified to support Blu-ray. Please also happens that if a defect resulting from the use of an accessory not certified by HP, it will not be covered under warranty.
Do you suggest any other drive / model?
