It's possible that the margin is razor thin on these, so they are unable to offer free shipping. Free shipping is usually included in the price of the product, they can price this at $569.99 and give you free shipping, but you would be paying extra $5 and be taxed on $569.99 instead of $549.99.

NVME M.2 is later tech. Anyone know if this has a slot to add a slow spinning drive, or another SSD?

I was planning on going in for this, especially with the Costco extra warranty deal, until I saw the best buy spectre x360 deal. I'm realize it's not an apples to apples comparison, but which is the better deal for a home use laptop, This or the BB spectre x360 i7 4k 512SSD for $1k deal? obviously I would rather spend less, but if the extra 400 is going to get me a significantly better machine, I'll go for it. If its just buying me a prettier machine, then I'll stick with this.

Spectre is their high end line, which is supposed to have better chassis and overall performance. If you plan to keep use the laptop for a few years and have to budget, I would go for the spectre. I've used about 3 pavillion's in the past 10 years or so, and they don't last much more than about 3 years. Haven't personally used the spectre, but I was thinking in the same lines as you this round to give it a try.

good for you.

but you're in way different ballpark. You're paying 80% more

I said it wasn't apples to apples, but I was seeing a $1600 computer for $1099 vs. a $700 computer for $550. So you can understand why I questioned - the better deal is the more expensive computer (a $500 savings vs a $150 savings) I was more trying to determine if the cheaper computer was good enough quality for what I needed and if the longevity was there.

Just so you know that more expensive laptop does not equal with longevity. Most of the margin was for stronger in computing hardware, in this case mobile i7 vs i5, 512GB SSD VS 256GB, I don't see much different in power and storage, and 4K vs FHD is useless comparison for laptop's screen. IMO, go for a cheaper one unless you have an other specific reason.

I see where you're coming from. but doesn't agree that the better savings does not equal better deal. Especially the spectre is exactly twice the cost of this laptop. AND it probably didn't sell at all @ Original $1600. That spec for $1600 is a robbery. lol so your argument is from a wrong starting point.

Oh I know $ doesn't equal longevity. thanks for breaking it down some. like I said, I just saw the savings difference. I'm a mac user but I've been researching PC laptops for a couple months and I know everyone talks highly about the HP spectre and the dell XPS, so I was just trying to determine if in this case it was worth the extra money for the better savings. I've honestly been eyeing the Samsung Notebook 9 pro the most, but I'm not seeing any upcoming deals for that one and figured the spectre might be the closest. I think I'll go into Costco and see what I think about this one in person. thanks!

Thanks! I get what you're saying now.
