    Anyone know the specifics of the RAM and 250GB 5400rpm HDD? Like manufacturer and model number?

    I just joined after ordering the most powerful machine I've ever ordered in my life:


    - HP Pavilion dv7t Entertainment Notebook
    - Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1 (64-bit)
    - Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor T9400 (2.53 GHz)
    - 17.0" diagonal WSXGA+ High-Definition HP BrightView Infinity Display (1680 x 1050)
    - 4GB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm)
    - 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT
    - 320GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive
    - [For BrightView Infinity] Webcam Only
    - Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100AGN and Bluetooth(TM)
    - LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD+/-RW with Double Layer Support
    - HP Integrated HDTV Hybrid Tuner
    - 8 Cell Lithium Ion Battery


    When it comes in, I highly doubt I'll be able to sleep =P

    I'm glad to see so many other people on here with similarly spec'd monster dv7t builds ;]

    The last PC I bought for home-use was 3 years ago - it was a refurbished emachine that cost me $449.... so i decided to upgrade a little... l0l


    I am just wondering -has anybody here noticed the sound quality? I am wondering whether or not the sound card that comes with the unit is great or should i consider an external/pc-card solution like the soundblaster audigy?

    Hi HP guys :) ,

    If I buy a dv7 with a 1440x900 res. display, may I configure it to run with 1680x1050 on the screen configurations, or is that the highest res I can have?
    (the graphic card in the 1680x1050 laptops is the same: GF 9600M GT)
    Thanks

    Nope, 1440X900 is the max you can get. If you had gotten the 1680x1050 then you can go down to 1440x900, but never up.

    With the dv7, i personally think the lower resolution screen is better (from a gaming perspective). This is because you can run the games at your native resolution with better quality effects. With the higher resolution, the 9600GT will struggle to crank out effects.

    It's IDT, Integrated Device Tecnology. It's HD audio and sounds very good for an integrated card.

    Ordered August 1st, Fedex says it was delivered to them in China August 11th. I'm hoping to see it next week.

    Who ever posted above about the refurnished E-machine. This is going to be my E-machine replacement also! I'm going to miss that dusty, noisy slow PC.... NOT !

    YES!!!
    I just got $175 bucks back from HP using the $400 dollar coupon!!
    I ordered my computer over a week ago and it just shipped from Kunshan, China! I expect to see it within the week.
    I called them up and asked them to change my price via their price protection plan. They had to switch out the old coupon I used and instant rebate, but I still got money back. ^_^
