Be sure to select "1TB 7200 rpm SATA+ 128GB M.2 SSD" if you want this configuration.. Seems like a better deal than the FP Dell Inspiron 15, because even though this is an i5 vs the Dell's i7, you get a bigger display (which some might find more useful for gaming) and it comes with an SSD already.

Deal [awin1.com] - Make sure to change the Hard Drive to "1TB 7200 rpm SATA+ 128GB M.2 SSD"

Use coupon code HPBTS2016NB - coupon expired, price is now $699.99

I would get it without the SSD (for $50 cheaper) and then just add one. 128GB is too small and will fill up very quickly.

HP has a 50.00 rebate on amex as well I believe. YMMV.

This is the same deal as a few days back, but only slightly more expensive.. by $30 more than the last time it was posted..



You want to make sure to tick the i7 option w/ 2gb vram if you get the 1080p screen

You want the i7 w/ 4gb vram if you get the 4K screen option.

last time the i7 2gb was a $110 upgrade, now they jacked it by $30 to $140..shake head



You don't want the SSD option.. because 128gb is just too small..

The laptop is NVME capable, but the price for nvme ssd isn't justifiable yet because their random i/o performance is on part with m.2 sata.


You can get an m.2 sata 512gb for $130, and put it in yourself.. just clone the main partition off the harddrive once you get the laptop.

This laptop fits a 2280 size m.2 drive

touch screen on a 17".. it's just not useful.. hahahah..

too heavy to use like a tablet in any way, and the screen doesn't do that swivel 360 thing on the other lighter laptops.

Not a bad computer but I'll still waiting.

easy for us tech people to say. most people won't have the time or experience to do this. that being said, for most people 128gb is perfect for normal use as an OS drive, and the 1gb for storage of multimedia or other storage.

Yeah right, like it matters unless you're playing modded out skyrim @ 1080p.

960m = 750 ti. This is not nearly a 4K card or 1440p card. Hell, its getting a bit long in the tooth for even 1080p. You are going to have a very bad time if you buy the 4gb VRAM and expect playable frames at 4K.

My 970m does OK on my 2560x1440 monitor, I cant imagine how bad a 960m would choke at 4K since its significantly less powerful.

The 965m is what the 960m should have been all along.

128 is fine for OS and programs, just point your document libraries to the big storage drive. Most of my machines are on ~120 GB SSDs with a spinner for capacity. I'm finally migrating my work PC to a larger SSD, and that's with multiple users, lots of research software, and three years running off a 120.

And installing an m.2 and cloning the OS may not be worth the $50 savings.

the 4GB version won't make it Faster, but it could enable some higher AA better quality textures/shadows if you retro game a bit using the 4k screen..

Overall, it's not something you can change later.. you might as well get it if you're getting the 4K option..

Because in this deal they also made the 2GB i7 upgrade $30 more expensive..

It was $110 in the last deal, so the difference is smaller now between the 4GB and the 2GB 960m

For a laptop, 128 is prolly enough for casual users.. but if you work-with-computers, it fills up FAST....

One downside is that this weighs a bit over 6 lbs, whereas the Dell only weighs 4.

Looking for a laptop to park on my desk for online shopping and occasional porn viewing. Is this more than I need?
