    Here is the link for the HP educational discount sign up:

    Follow the HP education discount instructions found at Student Buying Guide to get 7% - 12% off of the regular price for an HP notebook or other computer product.

    For those who don't qualify for the academic discount, you can use the sometimes available HP Coupons:

    Thanks so much for posting the info about the academic discount and coupons! I was about to buy a HP Pavilion zx5000 yesterday but decided to look on the net one more time for info about it. I found this forum and saved over $200 by using both the discount and a coupon. FYI, I asked the second salesperson at HP to whom I spoke why the first salesperson hadn't mentioned an academic discount to me even though I told him I teach in a university and would be using the notebook in the classroom. He hemmed and hawed - never could give me a credible answer. So it's thanks to you guys that I found it and saved the $$.

    I am also buying a zx5000. Which coupons did you use? Also did you use a mail in with the coupons? My company gets a discount in the epp program which i assume is the same discount you would get. Mine comes out too $1,119.00 with the 100 mail in with the epp price. Im getting xp pro and i think there is a coupon for an additional 100 off if you get pro. Can i combine these or only use one? Here are my specs...
    Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 2.80 GHz
    - Microsoft(R) Windows(R) XP Professional-only $49!!
    - 512MB DDR SDRAM (2x256MB)
    - FREE Upgrade from 40GB to 60GB 4200 RPM Hard Drive
    - DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive
    - 54g(TM) Integrated Broadcom 802.11b/g Wireless LAN
    - FREE Upgrade from 15" XGA to 15.4" WXGA (1280x800)
    - 64MB ATI Mobility Radeon(TM) 9200 (not a gamer so i dont think i need the 9600)
    - 8 Cell Lithium Ion Battery

    Thanks in advance[:D]

    you can usually only enter one coupon code, but you can try and if it doesn't work it will say you already have one in or something similar to that.

    Has anyone tried to use more than one coupon and succeeded, either ordering online or by phone?


    Thank you in advance.

    Hmmm, I wish I saw this thread sooner :(

    I ordered a Compaq V2000 yesterday evening. The man on the phone who I spoke with didn't mention anything about student pricing - even though I told him that I was a student and wanted to know if they offered any special pricing plans for students :(

    I wonder if they will refund me the difference?

    I think if you are not from one of those 3 or 4 listed states on HP site, there wouldn't be any tax charged period.

    Hi, I'm new here. exchange student at GWU, only here until december. want to buy a notebook but i'm totally overwhlemed...don't know where to start, all those no. are mumbo-jumbo to me (all i know is the higher number the better, apparently, and more expensive).
    Anyone so kind to help me? I could call you, ask a few questions, or e-mail exchange. I need to start NOW, am very learnable:) Looking for something up to 1000$, for fast Internet access, though not sure which one - wireless isn't an option in europe yet, my main use is fo word-procesisng, just need to be flexible..oh, and the fun stuff, movies and pictures but can compromise on that. bottom line - reliable, so that i can take it back to europe and not worry for the next 3-4 years.. and how do you 'apply' those coupons? this whole e-stuff makes me nervous - so i place an order and somewhere in the process they'll ask me for a student discount? or a coupon no? or how does in work?
    thanks, hopefully someone will catch up with me..

    rehotka, you might do fine with the Dell Inspiron 1000 (if i got the name wrong, it is the only notebook thats not silver in their website).

    Sorry for replying so late...it probably be sooner if u make a separate post over the hardware section...but here are some nice units under 1k. You can go with pretty much any averatec 3200 model and still be under 1k. You can also go with a couple of emachine model...check best buy site here and there and they have some good deals on it. Lastly, you can configure a zv or zx for a fairly good price on hp website if u don't mind a desktop replacement. All these choices would get u under 1k, and I am pretty sure their quality is better than a dell. Good Luck

    Ell yeah, like any other computer manufacturer they will not give you any coupons/deals without you telling them because, of course they always want to make more money.

    Toshiba - Quality, price, and features!

    Hey GWU,
    Even though my power pin broke after about 14 months of easy use, I would reccomend the HP zx5000 series, 3.6Ghz, 512RAM, dedicated video RAM w/ATI card, DVD/CD burner/player, for the 5078cl when it came out 1 yr ago --- I love it, although it is somewhat large and heavy to carry, it is a desktop replacement you can lug around (buy and extra battery too) It has all the bells and whistles, even WIFI 80211g (you will need it, if only to have a home/dorm wirelss network so you have no wires dragging around (sell bandwith to your buddies by assigning MAC addresses for a day/week/month if you have to pay for the broadband). Its nice to use it wherever with WiFi and now hotspots are all over, pull over, check your email!

    Anyway, cannot say whether the power pin problem I had is a fluke or a problem, lets just hope it was a fluke. Its a great computer and not so large, like the zls with the added 10 key (those are too big).

    Murph

    If you want something that does it all, mp3, video, movies, burn DVD/CD, download videos/pictures and manipulate, it does it all (as well as word processing, probably could handle dragon easy so you can quit typing and start talking!).

    I paid around
