    Its definitely worth the $70. You wont regret it. The 850m is faster than the gtx760m last year. Get the 850m

    Yeah if you got CTO then it's spending an extra $70 on the upgrade is a sure fire thing to do. The 850M is a very nice piece of brand new technology.

    Although debatable if the 850M with DDR3 is faster than a 760M with GDDR5 when it comes to 1080p with texture settings near their highest settings.
    DDR3 lacks the bandwidth, and the 850M is tapping into Maxwell 2MB frame buffer to try and get the job done.
    That said there was no 760M for the HP and last year the best there was is the 750M which the 850M is abosulutely slaughter.

    Sounds reasonable priced at $850

    The best discount I could get on a quad core model (i7-4712HQ) with 850M, 16GB RAM, 1.5TB HDD, 1080p touch, 1x1 Intel AC which discount with 25% off was going to be $1775

    Would you mind posting the link to the quad core model? The only ones I could find on their site were the dual core ones.

    So the highest end models are the ones with 850m ddr3 version?

    Sigh, why is MSI the only one investing in gddr5 850ms.
