Hi Fellow SDers...my desktop crashed over a month ago (with all my kids pictures on it- ) and I have been searching for a laptop deal since. It seems like I am always too late to get in on the B&M/on-line deals.
Anyway, I narrowed my search down to HP Pavillion dv4-1430US or dv6-1230US. My local Staples has both of these. From what I gather they have the same specs but here are the differerences I found:
6-Cell Lithium-Ion battery
3 USB slots
Price after Rebate: $549.99
Espresso Black 15.6" 16:9 Widescreen 12-Cell battery
4 USB slots
Price after Rebate: $599.99
They both have these common specs:
2.1 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T6500
4GB RAM DDR2
320GB (5400 RPM?) SATA
LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD R/RW with Double Layer Support
Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1
Wireless LAN 802.11a/b/g/n WLAN
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD
5-in-1 Integrated Digital Media Reader
Are these good laptops for the $$?
Which one is a better "deal"? There is only a $50 difference between the two. For $50 more, you get a larger screen & larger battery.
Staples has the original price of the dv4 higher than the dv6. Why? That doesn't make sense to me.
It is always good to buy a laptop with a smaller screen and so the weight is also reduced and more comfortable.
The 6 cell battery should also be fine if you do not unplug your laptop that much frequently.
i recommend DV4 but wait until after labor day, as there maybe better deals the weeks after.
I bought a same kind but a 15inch for $399.

i prefer the dv6 for the larger keyboard.. i just purchased a dvc6-1280US.. you should go to the store and see if you like the layout of the keyboards and which screen you like better.. and also how big of one you want to carry around.. some people like them as small and light as they can.. for me the dv6 is a good compromise of size and weight but still gives me a larger keyboard and a good widescreen
