    Hello All! What a great forum to find at a time where I find myself torn and worn over making a new laptop decision. :eek:

    First off, I am not a gamer (currently). I am going from a desktop to notebook and want to make the best possible decision I can.

    While building the dv6t and dv6t quad at HP, I have found that if I go with the quad series right now I can get:

    * Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
    * Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-720QM Quad Core processor (1.6GHz, 6MB L3 Cache) with Turbo Boost up to 2.8 GHz
    * FREE Upgrade to 4GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
    * FREE Upgrade to 500GB 7200RPM SATA Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
    * 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 320M - For i7 Processors
    * 15.6" diagonal High Definition LED HP Brightview Widescreen Display (1366x768)
    * LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD+/-RW with Double Layer Support
    * Webcam + Microphone
    * Intel Wireless-N Card
    * No TV Tuner w/remote control
    * HP Color Matching Keyboard
    * 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery
    * Mobile Stereo Earbud Headphones (1 pair)
    * Integrated 56K Modem
    * Microsoft(R) Works 9.0
    * HP Home & Home Office Store in-box envelope

    All for $1043.11 TX/shipping included.


    The dv6t with the i3-350m processor and all the other above specs would be about $30.00 more.

    Am I a fool for not going with the Quad? I'm uneasy about the AC adaptor and some of the issues that have been reported. The reduction in resolution versus the dv7 also concerns me.

    Am I buying too much machine - yet saving cash at the same time?

    Why is HP giving me more for less? With as much research as I have done (to the point of analysis paralysis) Am I missing something here?

    I'd be grateful for anyone's input on this. I need to buy by tomorrow morning.

    Thanks in Advance
    Srb.



    the quad with the i7 and geforce 320m, 500gb and 4gb DDR3 for about $30.00 cheaper than I can get the dv6t with the i3 processor

    On the DV7T does anyone else's "delete" key keep getting stuck under the bezel?

    My delete key works fine, it's just so FAR AWAY, and somewhat shrunken.
    Shrinkage is bad...

    Mine arrived yay........ I think. I unboxed it fired her up and it is running spool slow. I can't do more than 1 task at a time. I don't know if it's because I'm creating my restore discs so I can fresh install or what. But I can't even surf the web while creating the restore discs. It feels like I have an atom not a i7

    Groz, I'm missing something. Based on your statement above, you have 195.62 driver installed. Did you get this from device manager?

    Alright this is driving me nuts. I've wasted 5 DVDs trying to burn my recovery disks and only 1 of 4 is good. Did anyone else have this problem?

    I'm having the same problem I'm going to call hp about it tomorrow even the beta driver 195.81 won't work also. I think it might have to do with the bios. Mine came with f.15 and the bios on hp support is f.13 so I think they are shipping with newer bios then support has pushed out.
