HP doomed themselves

When my better half wanted to upgrade the (Crap) wifi in her HP laptop, and we found out that you couldn't replace the internal card with any card no approved by HP. If you tried the laptop would just halt at a screen telling you your wifi card wasn't approved. With no option to continue. We had no choice but to put the original WiFi card back in. I tried another HP laptop and got the same result. Looked online, and discovered this is very common to a lot of HP laptops.

She replaced her laptop a few months later.
