Given all the news and activity around the LX195 recently, I thought we could use an LX195 roundup to keep you occupied with reading over the coming weekend. I’ve just received my review unit from HP today, so be sure to check in on Monday for my complete review. In the mean time, here’s some of the best of the topics around the LX195.

First, you can order your LX195 starting today from So far that’s the only source I’ve found, be sure to post in the comments or forums as you find new sites that have it for sale.

Next, Terry at WeGotServed has a three part review of the LX195, you can start with part 1 here. He’s also got a poll running, asking if users prefer the LX195 or the Acer easyStore, so be sure to chime in with your vote.

Donavon at HomeServerHacks has a guide on how to upgrade the memory in the LX195, as well as the Morse Code credits extracted from the LX195 Easter Egg. has an unboxing video as well as a video of showing how to replace the hard drive and memory.

Do you have any other favorite reviews, articles, shopping sites, or links to share?
