Held off thinking the SAMSCLUB deal might be better but Gun shy on the HPs.

Can you show me how we get the $829 price reduced to $529 for the SAMCLUB HP 360 deal $529? Are there some discount codes that I am unaware of?

Order online after midnight or show up Sat Morning at SAMS at 0700. No coupon required.

I am still torn between these two units. The HP is a little large and the Samsung has a better quality feel about it.

Picked up the Sammy and while I was in the store compared the two units.

The HP is very large compared to the 13" Sammy. The Sammy compares to the higher end HPs and Dells in quality although all the higher end units looked nice for all the brands. Especially the $1200-2400 plus bunch.

Durability and functionality is TBD. All my Samsung stuff seems bullet proof these days but years ago I bought a Dell and an HP and they were quality products out of the box.

Lower end Dells are dogs which I am sure all the lower end units are these days.
Might pick up the HP and keep both since the Sammy is very nice.Big Grin

90 days to return at Sams and 45 days at BB if you have ruby slippers.

All of it appears to be MIC these days so there is nothing you can do to secure you stuff if the hackers in China want it. Stuff gets built into the chips which even the military has a hard time finding.

Just the way things are and us on the bottom are screwed, glued, and tattooed.

Well still setting up the Sammy,

Aluminum case is why it weighs more. High quality case.
Uninstalled Norton and defragging the HD to see if it gets any faster.

Fired both of them up and the Sammy is faster on boot but the HP is no slackard. Both need a SSD but that will invalidate the warranty. My HP worked out of the box and is a quality unit. Both have aluminum cases.

Both worth the sale price.

Sammy has Video HDR (High Dynamic Range) mode if anyone cares.
