Deal Of The Day: HP ENVY 17 3D 1080p Quad Core i7 Laptop For $1,549

By David Ponce

Those of you who know me are aware that I consider 3D technology gimmicky and not ready for mass market. Or rather, that we’re still busy transitioning to HDTV for most people to be ready to adopt 3DTV in the living room. There is a caveat to this: it doesn’t apply to gaming. 3D TV, not so much, but 3D gaming is great and should you decide to game, in 3D, on a laptop, there are very few competitors to the HP ENVY 17 Quad Core i7. And it’s now clearly 3D-enabled and bundled with a pair of 3D Active Shutter Glasses. Of course, this is still an early-adopter’s item and as such, the rebates aren’t phenomenal, but $50 off this $1,599 machine is still appreciated. At $1,549, you get:

Core i7-720QM 1.6GHz (TurboBoost up to 2.8GHz), 6GB DDR3, 500GB 7200RPM HDD, 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850, 17.3″ 1080p 3D UltraBrightView Infinity LED LCD, Blu-ray, TruVision HD Webcam, Wireless-N, backlit Keyboard, Bluetooth, Bundled 3D Active Shutter Glasses, Windows 7 Home premium 64-bit OS
