3-Years ago I got a C700 notebook for $300 on Black Friday. Vista still sucked back then and It had a crappy broadcom wireless card with horrible vista drivers causing frequent restarts. I complained and got a case-manager who informed be all he can do is replace my wireless card with an identical one. Eventually after 2 replacement cards and a windows reinstall - my CM was able to replaced the C700 with a C712 which uses a better wireless card. For all my trouble the HP Case Manager also gave me a $500 5-year Accidental Protection Plan(ADP) at no cost to me.
When I Accidentally dropped the C712 a week ago (R.I.P.) I assumed It would be replaced with a cheap $400 ready-to-ship compaq. But to my pleasant surprise my ADP Case Manager called me the other morning and said "If you can confirm the mailing information in the email I just sent you, I can get you This.."
Location: Somewhere where you wish you could be...
I have a Dell studio XPS laptop. i7 quad core, each core running 2 threads (so pretty much like an octo-core), running at 1.16 GHz, can overclock to something like 2.6GHz. 6GB RAM, 500GB HDD. Win7 premium.
this thing can run Crysis fairly well with all the quality settings set to high.
Heck no. This i5 CPU rocks, The fingerprint scanner is surprisingly useful, Screen looks amazing even in sunlight, Multi-Touch touchpad is fun with pictures and the largest internal HDD I've ever had in a notebook was 350gb so having 640gb is pretty sweet too.
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
System manu. HP-Pav.
System Model:AY014AA-ABA a4310f
Processor: AMD Anthlon II X2 250 Processor (3 GHz)
Memory: 4096MB RAM
NIVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
+ a really big screen (20-30 in.)
Is this good, avg. or bad?
