This week, the best-selling desktop replacement HP Pavilion dv7t Quad gets a 35% off discount. While last week's coupon was slightly better for a minimum configuration, the 35% discount is fantastic for upgrades. This is the minimum configuration, which is already pretty good:
- 2nd Gen Intel Core i7-2670QM - 2.2 GHz w/ Turbo up to 3.1 GHz
- 17.3" HD+ HP BrightView LED (1600 x 900)
- 1GB AMD Radeon HD 7470M GDDR5 Discrete Graphics [HDMI, VGA]
- 8GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
- 750GB 5400 rpm Hard Drive
- 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery (standard) - Up to 5.2 hours of battery life
- Blu-ray player & SuperMulti DVD burner
- HP TrueVision HD Webcam with Integrated Digital Microphone and HP SimplePass Fingerprint Reader
- 802.11b/g/n WLAN
- Standard Keyboard with numeric keypad
- Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
- 2 year limited warranty included
With the 35% off coupon, the minimum config 17.3" HP Pavilion dv7t Quad comes out to be $812.49 shipped free. However, I would also recommend the following upgrades to fully take advantage of this coupon:
- 17.3" Full HD Anti-glare LED-backlit Display (1920 x 1080) for $150 - 35% = $97.50! This gorgeous screen is the upgrade you should strongly consider.
- 1GB AMD Radeon HD 7690M GDDR5 Discrete Graphics [HDMI, VGA] for $25 - 35% = $16.25! Worth it! You get almost double the framerate in COD: Modern Warfare 3 for so little money.
- 750GB 7200 rpm Hard Drive for $20 - 35% = $13! The 5400rpm hard drive is definitely the bottleneck in this system.
- 9 Cell Lithium Ion Battery for $30 - 35% = $19.50! If you don't mind the added weight and protrusion, you get three extra cells of juice.
