Deal Of The Day: $150 Off On HP Envy 14 Beats Edition

By David Ponce

HP makes a line of laptop computers called the Envy. I’m sure you’ve noticed us talking bout them quite often. And the Envy line itself comes in many flavors, one of which is the Beats Edition. It is decked out with Beats audio as well as all the other Envy goodies, like a 2nd Generation Core i5 / i7 “Sandy Bridge” CPU, 1GB Radeon HD 6630M graphics card and a bunch of other stuff. Among these, we like “Skype-certified 720- HP TrueVision HD Webcam, mini DisplayPort, HDMI, optional WWAN/3G, up to 256GB Solid State drive.” As I’m sure you can notice from the wording on these specs, not all of them are standard options and as you load up on these, the price rises. So it’s good to see a $150 coupon today, which will bring a Core i5 or i7 configuration to $899 or $999 respectively.

Deal Of The Day: HP TouchPad 9.7-in WebOS For $469

By David Ponce

We spend a lot of time talking about notebooks and desktops here on the Deal Of The Day column. So it’s nice to veer off into the tablet world for a little change. Today we’re looking at HP’s Touchpad, the highly anticipated 9.7inch WebOS tablet that usually sells for $499 in 16GB flavor, and $599 at double the memory. Today you can get a $30 off coupon, as well as 15% off on accessories for it, like cases and docks.

The Touchpad is the first device to sport WebOS outside of a cellphone, and HP has decided that the right place to do so is in the heated tablet market. It packs 1GB of RAM and a dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor, as well as the ability to play nice with other WebOS devices. The operating system has been described as “smooth and intuitive”, while the screen is “crisp and clear”.

Deal Of The Day: HP Pavilion dm1z With Dual-Core Fusion For $369

By David Ponce

AMD started talking about their new generation of microprocessors quite some time ago: back in 2006! The Fusion class of processors were meant to integrate a CPU and a powerful GPU onto the same die, with an effort to reduce thermals and of course size. Fast forward 5 years, and you’ve finally got real products hitting the market, like this HP Pavilion dm1z. It’s 11.6 inches across and only 0.8 inches thick, but most importantly, packs a dual-core of the Fusion processor. Engadget had this to say about it:

After years of waiting has AMD finally done it? Provided a netbook / ultraportable platform that melds really solid performance and graphics with solid battery life? Something that can kick Intel’s Atom to the curb, but doesn’t require a recharge every two and a half hours? The Pavilion dm1z certainly has all signs pointing to yes.

Resounding endorsement it seems, and today you can grab one for as little as $369. This is with a “FREE 3GB memory upgrade, FREE upgrade to computrace LoJack ($60 savings) and free shipping. Plus, 50% off two 6-cell batteries and $40 off Microsoft Office 2010 Home & Student.”

This offer is good until July 9th.

Deal Of The Day: HP Pavilion g6 15.6-inch Laptop Starting At $384

By David Ponce

Think about this for a minute: you can get your hands on a dual-core 15.6 inch laptop with “streamlined design, Altec-Lansing speakers and SRS Surround Sound, borderless touchpad and chiclet-like keyboard, HDMI, Webcam & card reader” for $384. Brand new and shipped. That’s not even a month’s rent. That’s probably how much you spend on overpriced lattes in six weeks! See, the Pavilion g6 line of portables are HPs budget-minded offerings and on today’s deal, all of them are getting a $100 off plus a $15 to $50 additional coupon, depending on configuration. So while the g6t with the dual-core processor just mentioned does fall from $499 to $384 (after a $115 total rebate) the g6s line with the newer Sandy Bridge Core i3 processor starts at $569 after a $130 price slash.

HP Recalls 70,000 Laptop Batteries


By Chris Scott Barr

If you’ve got an HP laptop that you purchased between August 2007 and March 2008, you might want to stop and pay attention for a minute. Yes, I know there’s plenty of other fun stuff to look at, but if you value your legs and the pants you’re wearing, stop for a moment. HP is recalling some 70,000 laptop batteries due to overheating issues. Apparently there have been incidents of property damage with some of these, so it would be worth checking into. The models affected are listed below, more info after the jump.

HP ProBook Notebooks Offer Business Class Sex Appeal


By Shane McGlaun

I worked on a few business class notebooks over the years and one thing they all had in common was that they were plain looking black boxes with nothing redeeming about the way they looked. I always thought showing up to a meeting with an ugly notebook was about the same as showing up with an ugly tie.

HP is offering some new business class notebooks called the HP ProBook series that are designed to be functional, but good looking as well. HP says that the new notebooks are designed with an eye towards minimalist style and combines matte and glossy surfaces. The machines are available with glossy and merlot finishes.

HP DV2 Breaks Cover


By Shane McGlaun

Ever since the MacBook Air launched consumers have had a bit of a fascination with super thin notebooks. Back at CES 2009 in January, HP was showing off its new thin notebook called the DV2. The thin little machine wasn’t as svelte as a MacBook Air, but it looked more usable to my eyes.

HP has announced that the DV2 is now officially available starting at $799, making it much cheaper than the Air. The machine uses the new AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 CPU that it aimed specifically at ultra-portable machines. Other features include a 12.1-inch LCD with a screen resolution of 1280 x 800 and LED backlighting.
