Aaaargh, I went to 3 different Staples that showed "Low Stock Clearance Item" and all 3 "did not have it" : \ I guess I got lucky when I got in on the dm4 deal
I bought a returned laptop that has the hard drive predictfailure flag set. The tech at the Staples where I bought it said that this was a common problem of these HP laptops. I intend to return it to HP to get a new drive. Pretty much every store that has only 1 probably has it in the damage area and is returning it to HP for credit. Most managers will not sell it, but the manager at my store did not mind. He thought I was crazy until he saw the coupon and the rebate brought the price down to 240. I am typing on it now, and I love the full size screen and keyboard. I am reclining on my ez chair and using it without a laptop pad for now. It does not seem to be getting too hot yet.

This laptop is definitely a keeper.
