    Edit by justinkw1: All dv6t Select Edition discussion has been split from the original dv6t thread to prevent confusion between the two generations. Discussion regarding the original dv6t should continue at http://forum.notebookreview.com/hp-owners-lounge-forum/336832-official-dv6t-owners-lounge.html, while Select Edition owners should continue discussion here in this thread -- see http://forum.notebookreview.com/hp-...ect-edition-owners-lounge-17.html#post6368001.


    Up to this point, I would like to point out some resources for those who want to know more and get started:

    i did get the free upgrade. the list is from my order receipt so maybe thats why its not showing up on this one.... im gonna go configure one just to be sure though, thanks.

    as for the coupon code, overall i saved about the same with HP academy discount on the laptop and all the accessories i ordered. unless i can use the academy and the coupon code together it might be too much hassle. :\

    edit: just tried to configure a laptop using the coupon code. i cant use it with hp academy discount and if i use the coupon code end up saving $30-40 on my total order including accessories

    I'm going to do a review on my laptop once i get it and do an unboxing video.

    i didnt get a warranty on mine. i'm not prone to dropping my stuff and i usually take pretty good care of it. but if i do, I'm going to get the warranty from costco. i hear their's is pretty good, and u can even get it on a configured system from HP.

    I'm in the burbs with the parents now, but I'm usually in Manhattan.

    I'm already anxiously and irrationally checking status updates, haha.

    I've been checking it non-stop since i ordered it. The accessories I ordered departed Grove City, OH last night and my laptop has been "In production" since yesterday morning. I'm hoping that they work on weekends in China. Hopefully I'll get it this Friday.
