    Hi, i purchased one of these laptops in late June from Best Buy..only to find our a few hours later whilst doing a Bios Update online that HP offered it direct with a BlueRay drive (rather than DVD) and an extra $100 rebate above that offered by Best Buy. So check out HP direct.

    ONly problem with this laptop is very poor battery life…<1 hour
