Was hoping this would be a touchscreen, but I guess not.

Great deal, considering it includes a 3rd-gen low-voltage i5 processor and sufficient memory. Along with the $370 i5 2nd-gen laptop on eBay, all the good stuff seems to be coming out now.

Sorry to be out of topic but it sounds like you know your hardware stuff. Thoughts on this BB laptop as a gaming PC for my brother who wants to play D3? http://www.bestbuy.com/site/HP+-+...Id=6835328

Damn, that's the one I was hoping to get yesterday. Forgot that it was going on sale today, haha.

It's an excellent deal. i7 quadcore, 14", fairly light / ultrabook...the only issue is that I don't know how well the HD4000 graphics chip works for D3. I also think a laptop mostly for gaming should be larger, like 15.6". Someone else will have to comment on these points.

(Sigh...should I try to cancel that Thinkpad I just got?)

On another thread somebody said Portal 2 and similar powered games should run on high settings. For Battlefield 3 like games, they said at least medium should be fine...

quick answer: not really.

The i7-3630QM is more than sufficient to handle the processing but the description of ENVY lacks a dedicated graphics card. I'm not sure about graphics processing of hte Ivy integrated graphics. You are better off looking for a notebook with a dedicated graphics card.

Better than the dell Vostro on ms store posted, a few days ago with i5(sandy bridge), 500gb hdd, 4gb ram - rest of specs identical.

Thanks OP - keep them coming if you see better than this SD.

Got in on this deal. This seems to be the best Core i5 deal of the Black Friday week.

This is a beautiful laptop that hinges on ultrabook territory with it's sub 1" thick design. It has a specific designed dvd-rw drive to help keep the laptop thin. Most ultrabooks don't have optical drives. The killer here for me, which many other ultrabooks suffer from, is the 4 cell battery - which is a crying shame, because it has everything else I am looking for. The i5 dual core is a lower GHz design, so the benchmark suffers a bit at under 2900 (still quick). But that's in keeping with the specs on a sub 1" frame.

I don't understand the appeal of the Best Buy laptops.. The cheaper ones seem to be at least 1 generation old, if not more.. I was about to bite the bullet on some Samsung atrocity when I remembered that Microsoft usually has decent deals (got at least 1 thing last couple of BF).. So glad I didn't get the Best Buy deals.. Sheesh.
