We start the week with the HP Pavilion dv7t Select Edition. This is the more powerful version of the dv7 and comes in either Core i5 or i7 flavors. After today’s rebates, they’ll set you back either $849 (Core i5) or $999 (Core i7). Between the $400 off and the free upgrades, you’re looking at shaving $530 off the regular price. And for this, you get a whole bunch of machine.
A Core i5-460M 2.53GHz processor, a free upgrade to 8GB DDR3, a free upgrade to 640GB 7200RPM Hard Drive, HDMI, 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 switchable graphics and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS.
