    Looking to get a new laptop...old one is busted.
    I found this one on ebay
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...rkparms=algo=CRX&its=S%2BI&itu=UCI%2BSI&otn=3
    and like the specs on it. I am not too concerned with the size of it because it is basically a desktop replacement and does'nt move very often. Does this seem like a pretty good deal or are there better deals out there? I only play World of Warcraft as far as games go and I do want one with a blu ray, since it is going to be the next format on the shelves. The HDMI port is a big plus for me also. I also like the 17" monitor with the number pad. If you know of any better deals out there with similar specs please let me know before i make a final decision. Thanks in advance.

    I would get more memory, but overall it's a good machine. 17" is huge tho. I think 15.4" is better -- even if it stays on a desk.

    no that machine has 2 slots, and both are used up... so you'd basically have to sell/throw-away the two that it comes with, and buy 2x2GB.

    well that was just some recommended laptops from slickdeal users. the deal stems from a coupon that claims "$500 off HP Pavilion Notebook $1,399+ (Excludes the tx2000z)" with coupon code NB4796. so you should be able to get one of the 17" pavilions as well.

    that's a pretty good deal, so if you end up doing it i'd do it quick because if it's a limited use coupon it might expire soon.
