HP dv7-4285dx 17.3" i5 460m 6gb 640gb hdd + Xbox 360 4gb $749 + tx YMMV
Listed this as YMMV because you need a valid COLLEGE STUDENT ID and .edu email address in order to get the Xbox with laptop... although I sent my elderly parents to buy it, and they managed to get it without... details at the end.

The free Xbox deal is good for any laptop $699 and up at BestBuy.

The HP dv7-4285dx is a 17.3" screen, but only has 1600x900 resolution, I know that's a deal killer for many.

Then of course you get the Xbox 360 4gb console that you can either keep or unload on ebay for $150.00 new in box... all in all, doesn't seem like a bad deal to me.

Sent my mom & dad to Best Buy to get it (they're in their 70's), and they brought my niece with her high school ID. Sales rep said "No, gotta be a college student". They talked to the manager, and he said as long as they could provide a .edu email address, he would authorize it.

Mom called me and I gave her my alumni .edu email (I am not a student). But they accepted it and gave her the laptop with the free Xbox. So if you don't have a college ID and email address, it is YMMV. Also, my alumni email address is valid, but they didn't send anything to check, so I guess you could probably just make up any email with an edu suffix.
