    It normally comes with the needed bios updates, so I guess that means updated bios with slic 2.1, off course. Though they will be only for certain mobo's in Hp desktops & notebooks I suppose...

    If the laptop is on the list then yes, it will have 2.1 slic, no matter when you bought it

    So you would expect NO BIOS updates ever any more on HP site?
    They will send you a personal CD each time, right?

    What are you on?

    They'll have to provide it, cause they're NOT gonna send everyone a personal cd, come on, pall, be real...

    They will provide it. Maybe the older models kinda late, or even not, but most recent models will get a 2.1 bios from their site, or have allready gotten it.

    EDIT : psychadelics can mess with you :D

    Ok I didn't know that I'm dealing with 2 year olds
    What I meant is if your pc didn't come with 2.1 HP will not post an upgrade to 2.1 they will still post upgraded bios just not upgraded slic
    When they say that it will be compatible with windows 7 that does not mean slic 2.1

    As far as I know slic 2.1 is needed for compatability with win7.
    Slic 2.0 just won't get it activated.

    I don't know if in HP's are so stupid, but the latest bios (F.11) of HP 6730s notebook has the slic v2.1 table inside.

    You had to activate the slic with "HPBI103 write SLP ON"

    :p

    I guess you didn't bother to read my post. HP upgraded my BIOS to 2.1 with just a BIOS update from their Vista drivers page. I'm absolutely positive of this since I did a Slic dump before and after. I purchased my pc back in May and wasn't eligible for the Windows 7 upgrade. So yeah, they do upgrade your Slics :rolleyes:
