Here is the deal. I like Hp computers but when my last laptop broke 5 months ago, Spent lots of time searching on the best computer out there. I came to the conclusion that I do not want a Vista machine, I want a macbook. My dilemma is this: wait for the back-to-school promotion or get a cheaper customized hp computer and an ipod touch. I want to have clue as to when apple's back to school sale is this year. I know last year it was june 3. I hope its roughly the same time frame. I want to know if hp's dv3z with the following: # • AMD Turion(TM) X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile Processor ZM-86 (2.4 GHz) # • FREE Upgrade to 3GB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm) from 2GB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm) # • FREE Upgrade to 250GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection # • ATI Radeon(TM) HD 3200 Graphics with 64MB Display Cache Memory # • 13.3" diagonal WXGA High-Definition HP LED BrightView Widescreen Display (1280 x 800) # • Slot Load Super Multi 8X DVD+/-R/RW w/Double Layer Support # • Webcam + Fingerprint Reader # • Wireless-N Card with Bluetooth for 840$ + ipod touch=1069$ or the basic macbook with :2.0GHz * Intel Core 2 Duo * 2GB DDR3 Memory * 160GB hard drive1 * NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics * Standard keyboard * Aluminum unibody plus the ipod touch in june for roughly 1550 w/o rebate. Please help, it torments me every night before I go to bed.
