Thread Details

I just bought HP Pavilion g7-1365dx Laptop: AMD Quad-Core A6-3420M (2.4GHz), 17.3" (1600 x 900) LED, 4GB DDR3, 640GB HDD, Radeon 6520G, HDMI, Webcam, 6-Cell, Win 7 Prem, for $288 at Best Buy in Arlington Heights, IL. This Computer was $449 around Match 7, 2012. This will not show up in their inventory checker. I just called 2 stores, then I found that no store in Chicago has it, except the store in Arlington Heights, IL, and another store in Old Orchard, IL. There was/is an open box at Old Orchard, IL store, and the guy was willing to sell it to me with 5% discount at $273.

This clearance could be in other states too. You will be able to check the specification

SKU: 4693764

I also have a question. How could I get rid of "GEEK SQUAD" stuff, because I was told at the store that this is a brand new computer but "GEEK SQUAD" has added additional stuff on the computer, but they will not charge me for that, since the computer is on clearance. They said that the computer comes with a 6 months AV for free, some additional gig squad software and backup copies of the original Operating System and Software on the DVD!).

I just want to make sure, but when you say "gig squad", do you mean Geek Squad? I'm not entirely sure about that specific type of crap software, but you should be able to use uninstaller tools such as Revouninstaller to remove it. There may also be specific guides on the Internet on how to remove all of it.

Anyways, it seems like a really good deal. I just wish that it had USB 3.0, but eh. I'm going to go out tomorrow to check for myself.

Not a bad deal. I highly suggest you overclock and under-volt the processor with K10stat. Have my A6-3400m running at 2.4/2.6 Turbo from the stock 1.4/2.3 Turbo. AMD was seriously too lenient with the stock voltage and clock settings with their Llano line of processors.

Gig squad, AYRTS? They have "GEEK SQUAD" posted in large letters inside the farking store.

If you google "gig squad" the first result is geek squad. How stupid can some people be?

Good deal here. Some stores have them at around $360 but they won't price match it unless you buy it there for that price then physically go to the store that has them in stock for $288 and request a price match. They'll refund you the money.

Burn a Windows 7 Home Premium ISO and use your valid CD Key on the bottom of the Notebook. That's the only way to ensure that you're bloatware free. Wink

TD for poorly worded title ... remove 'HOT', and add 'YMMV'
