Remember not too long ago there were new HPs? No? Okay then, let’s assume there’s always new HPs, like now. The Dv6t and Dv7t (16-inch and 17.3-inch laptops, respectively). The line has a multitude of options that belittle the price or drastically make it as high as you want, with a basic 2.2GHz Core i7 processor, or up to 3.4GHz quad-core Core i7 chips that are only any good of you like scaring people off with those extra cores (or need them for heavy multitasking and pwning n00bs).
Both systems comes with AMD’s 1GB Mobility Radeon HD 6570 graphics chip, and both the Dv6 and Dv7 start off at $1000 to $1,100, respectively. Hit up the source links to play with the configurations and see how much bang you can get for your buck. Via: HP (dv6t), (dv7t)
