    They still have that Leonvo Y580 for 899 with FHD, but it comes with a 5400 RPM HDD, still a good price if you prefer a glossy screen.

    that's exactly the one i was talking about.

    FHD is an error. it actually does not have fhd.


    it seems there isn't that big of a difference between gt650m ddr5 and gtx660m.

    lenovo Y580 with FHD costs $1100. So this dv6t is the better buy




    I wish there were a 33% coupon for dv6t non-quads.

    a core i5 + gt650m + FHD = $1100 list price. 33% off would make it $737, and that would be a decent buy.

    whats the difference between dv6t 7000 vs quad edition vs select. The regular is $579 and if you upgrade it witht he 650M and 1080 screen it's still cheaper then the rest significantly.. im just trying to see what the quad/select edition is so much more.

    The dv6t quad comes with a base core i7 CPU (dv6t select has i5) and Nvidia GT 630M GPU.

    Huh that's weird. I just tried it again, but it was invalid. Then I realized that I was logged into HP Academy. Logged out, and now it works. I can't imagine why that the code wouldn't work while logged in.

    Yeah unfortunately you can't stack the student discount with any coupons. :(

    That's great to hear HP was so easy to work with to get a lower price here, I've done it before too and it was easy enough. You hear so many complaints about HP support but in my experience it's often better than the rest as far as PC manufacturers go.

    Although sometimes there are Academic Purchase Plan specific coupons. Not often, but sometimes.

    I asked HP to refund a $68 difference between the coupon I used on 7/10/12 for 2 dv7t's, and the new 33% coupon that came out on 7/11.

    They refused and said coupons are time sensitive.

    I didn't call, but used e-mail instead.

    first time HP buyer.

    So far their CS stinks.

    The problem is that the 33% coupon does not work for the extended warranty added with the machine. It actually removes the instant 30% savings originally placed on the extended warranty. Any work around that?

    Also, is there a big difference between the base quad core and the 3720QM? Is it worth the money to upgrade it?

    Does anyone have a clue of the included RAM is the faster 1666Mhz?

    Last, does the oversized 9-cell battery look too bad?

    1) Wasn't aware that any warranty discounts are eliminated, unfortunately I see no way around it when using the 33% off coupon.

    2) No, don't spend the money to upgrade to the 3720QM, not worth it.

    3) I think you mean 1600MHz memory, and the answer to that is yes. To be precise, it comes with Samsung 1600 MHz DDR3 memory.

    4) It's big and elevates the laptop, I don't know if that means it's ugly. From a functional perspective it helps elevate the laptop and improve cooling, assuming you don't use it in your lap that is. Consider it adds about .5 lbs of weight too.

    Good luck!
