Help with HP Envy m4

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I bought this computer from bustbuy as an impluse buy because I do need a laptop. I was just looking on NewEgg and saw laptops for the same or less money than what I paid for this thing, they even had dedicated GPU's. I am not up to date on the new line of Nvidia mobile GPU's, so this is why I am coming here. Can anyone suggest me a nice laptop with a decent GPU, an i7, and preferrably two HD slots, that's all I really care about, 1080p would be nice too. I need to stay around $800-$850 on this. Of anyone can be of assistance I would appreciate it. Reps will be given.

Don't worry too much about it having an i7. The mobile core i5's are beast CPU's. I don't know if this has dual HDD bays, but it looks awesome, has an SLI configuration, and kicks major butt for the price. 1920x1080, dual GPU's, backlit keyboard

It's about the only thing I can find that meets your price range, actually.
