New laptop inna house!


We finally got another laptop in the stable. After a few weeks of research, we opted for the HP DV4170 which was on sale for the same price at both Best Buy and CompUSA. The notebook costs $1,399 but there are $200 worth of rebates, bringing the final price to $1,199. This unit was a PC Mag Editors Choice with lower specs.

The DV4170 is configured with the following:
- 15.4" Widescreen BrightView that runs a max res of 1280 x 800
- Intel Pentium M 740 chipset (1.73 Ghz with 533 Mhz FSB)
- 1 Gigabyte of RAM
- 100 GB hard drive at 4200 RPM
- 6-in-1 digital medial reader
- Intel PRO Wireless 802.11b\g
- DVD +-R\RW & CD-RW optical drive

The nicest feature is the remote control that fits in the PCMCIA slot. You can remotely access your movies and music; even before boot up!

Kevin I picked this laptop up three months ago and it has been just fabulous! One of the best if not the best laptop I have ever owned! The power is fabulous and the screen rocks!

It does rock and I can actually see everything perfectly. Thanks Kevin for helping me pick out an awesome product and thanks for the plug for the new business.
