    Hi do anybody have time to post some 3DMark06 benchmark ? ( don't buy it )

    It could be fun to see the difference for the low to the high end dv7-1000 series :D

    3DMark06 benchmark battel

    1) P7350, 2 gb ram, gf 9600m gt, 5400 rpm harddisk, vista / linux

    vs

    2) T9400, 4 gb, gf 9600m gt, 7200 rpm harddisk, vista / linux

    Or if you will post your configuration + 3DMark06 benchmark

    But it would be fun to see the the 1) vs 2) :cool:

    Its a tax for those that need the very best of everything;) I reallocated that amount, went with the T9400 (2.53) to add a BluRay drive.

    Add in if its on a clean install or what HP shipped with the system.

    My Dv7 is suprisingly quick, even with all the HP fluff.

    There was some discussion in earlier posts about coupons .
    FYI Coupon code NB3089 worked just fine for me as of 7/31, It knocked an extra $98 dollars off.

    So I just received my dv7t as well...

    Does anyone notice their build quality alittle iffy...The controls that light up... that piece of chrome on the edging is alittle chipped off...

    I don't know if I feel that is enough to ask for another in return...Anyone else?!

    Keys feel great, mouse tracker has to be used a few times, the mouse clickers underperform if you click to the outside of the buttons... so click on the inside

    Does anyone know why my windows experience score would be a 3.3 for graphics? I only got the nvidia 9200 gs but that was definitely better than my last graphics card in a dv9233cl... and that was 4.7 ...

    should i look into updating the drivers or potentially installing some forceware...

    If mine comes with chipped paint I'm sending it back for a "new" one.
    sounds like someone has been using yours.

    its the chrome finish on the edge of the round corner... seems like just lack of quality control...
