$378 based on what? I don't see any store selling the processor that price anywhere. They can tack on any price they want to on there. But the fact is, it's a 2.4GHz chipset not a 3.4GHz chipset which the OP misleadingly wrote. The desktop i7's, however, are closer to 3.4GHz.
Oh, shut up.
3.4 GHz with Turbo Boost is the max speed. There, are you happy?
You act like I'm intentionally misleading people and have a vested interest in selling this computer.
No shit its going to have a low-end clock speed that ramps up depending on what tasks you're doing... if it was running at 3.4 GHz all the time the battery would be drained in no time. Obviously a mobile processor isn't going to come close to yielding the benchmarks and performance of a desktop, unless you're comparing an i7 Extreme Edition Mobile CPU, in which case, you basically have a laptop with no battery life that's a desktop replacement. So talking about desktop clock speeds in relation to a mobile processor is nonsense.
Whether or not the processor costs $378, its still a pretty good deal at $450 when you factor in all the component costs.
Processor: $260 to $280
Memory: $25 to $30
DVD Drive: $25
You're already at about $360 to $400 in parts and that's not even factoring in the cost of the MOBO, Speakers, Display, Wireless, Operating System License, etc.
Haha, no. Desktop >> Laptop. The cpu may appear remotely comparable, but the video cards are not even close.
I have a radeon hd 6870, not even remotely a new card. Compare it to the card in this laptop http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/
I didn't think you were intentionally misleading people. But the fact that you aware of it now and are still not changing it to 2.4 GHz makes me think otherwise.
There, clock speed is forever removed. You can explain to everyone what clock speed it is and what turbo boost is and all the fun stuff, because clearly you are the resident SD Intel expert. The wiki is your playground. Have at it!
easy enough to do, after I put it in the wiki.
Yeah, thanks for adding that link mikmaze. I knew about the Comcast Inventory Checker, I just didn't choose that one because sd.site88.net is what people usually use here. It was working at the time I posted, but now that its down, I figured I'd edit the OP to add the Comcast one. Repped for your contributions!
just picked 1 up. Dissambling . Will update inside components. Replacing the HDD with a 256 GB Vertex 3, 8GB Samsung 30nm DDR3 and Intel Centrino Ultimate 6300. BTW the sd.site88.net is very accurate. Show "low stock clearance" at my store, went to pick up and pay, check back with that site when i'm out to the parking lot and it already show OOS
EDIT: Inside has a Toshiba 640GB 5400rmp drive, 4GB Kingston 1600MHz cas 11 stick + 2GB Samsung 1600 MHz cas 11 stick, Wireless device is RTL8188CE.
EDIT2 : No backlit keyboard, 2x USB 3.0, 1x USB 2.0, Gigabit LAN. And yes I was able to switch the wireless adapter and it works flawlessly in dual band.
For those of you want to downgrade to Windows 7 clean boot with a USB stick, you have to disable "Secure Boot" in BIOS (Press F2 to access BIOS) and change "UEFI mode" to "CSM mode(above this it should change to AHCI)" to be able to see the USB
I saw they had an i5 for $50 less due to mail in rebate. L855 S5370. Basically the same I believe, except for 750 HD and i5. Don't know if anyone would be interested in that, if they can't locate this one.
If limit pushed $25 more then may need to consider my earlier post.
yeah my only concern is the tax so i would come out with negative earnings on the sale. recycling fees and tax on a 575 laptop would be greater than 600 so i would have to revise my quote i guess, I dont want to sound like an indecisive person and all. whatever i can replicate. if i have to jump through hoops i will but the main thing is to give and deliver. not say yeah i can get you the laptops and then be like woooopsie they sold out cuz someone else got them all. haha either way specs they want is 15" wifi g or n 500gb hdd i7 cpu and 4gb of ram. im sure theres other stuff floating around the pike
Basically the same specs as this, but 750 GB HD and Bluetooth. Maybe if you gave the manager crap, you could get them to knock off $75.
nice but i think that might be a bit of overkill for the client.. but if its fast and an i7 i think thats what they want, but who knows i can quote one thing and then they can say never mind. dont want to stock up if they are not certain about it.
