If I am correct, then the HDD on this lappy might be 5400RPM (revolutions per minute). Right now, almost all new laptops have 7200RPM. this is faster. But it is SATA.
XBRITE-FullHD™ : 1920 x 1080 resolution (1080p)
XBRITE-ECO™ : 1280 x 800 resolution (~720p)
Also, I hope it has BR burner (not just player)...
the bb guy told me that it wont be able to burn blu-rays, only read
Is 250GB 7200RPM? FullHD? Can you please (if possible) try to get those two answers from a BB employee?
Which HP 17" you are talking about?
I was looking at the dv7-1132 (http://www.staples.c...ent Notebook PC
not too sure of the reputation HP carries, my parents have one just a few years old and its a pos. Was also considering splurging and extra 100 to get the Dell 17" one, but then again if I'm spending 800, may as wel spend another 100 to get the sony w/ the blu-ray, even if im not a fan of the non-touch sensitive buttons... haha i'm picky i know but hell i'm greek its in my blood to look for the best deal possible
All the Sony Vaio laptops they had in this style, they had three, were FullHD 1080p. I asked a sales rep if all the Sony Vaio's they sold with blu-ray were FullHD 1080p and he said he hasn't seen one in months that wasn't. Then I brought up the Black Friday laptop and he said he couldn't imagine it not being 1080p....so i guess we'll see. Hope that helps.
BB said the BF Sony will be 1080p, like I said above, basically a model in between the 235 and 270
