I have no idea about Bill Me Later. I would think it is like any other payment plan. Which one did you go with?

Not exactly. My HP laptop was a $1,200 model, and its a piece of crap. I did have an earlier HP laptop, and it was considerably better built and had no issues up until I traded it away. This latest one was a spontaneous purchase, 4 years ago, but its no longer a secret about the problems caused to large numbers of HP laptops due to poor cooling, among other issues...

http://www.nvidiasettlement.com/

but the real story here is the terrible customer service. The eventually extended the factory warranty from one to two years for these laptops, as a band aid to hush customers, yet they apparntly didnt think it important enough to notify anybody, including registered owners.

Not to mention other issues with the laptop that was hardly used, like bad keyboard for example. And if you ever need to buy parts form HP themselves, prepare to be price gouged by many thousands percent mark up

You may notice they generally offer more for less $ throughout thier lineup, compared to the competition. theres a reason for that. cheaply made

I find it hard to believe that their ENVY series, which I assume is the line your talking about is a piece of crap. Those laptops are close to the Macbook Pros.

You always need to look at reviews for anything technology-wise.

I do agree with you guys on the Dell part, Dell is a terrible company, make poorly made and overall terrible laptops.
ultra-portable meaning the new DM1Z fusion laptop?

i'm really looking and thinking hard of getting it....but i've had loads of horror stories of HP from my friends

Yes, I am talking about the dm1z. I've heard terrible stories to, but the dm1z seems like they've really stepped up. If you read the review in my post before it's a very good put together laptop, and if it's the warranty people are getting mad about they don't have to get it through HP, there are different ways to get a warranty on things. ALSO, I forgot to add, was A LOT of people that complain about HP are they ones that buy them from Bestbuy, OfficeMax, OfficeDepot, and don't configure them themselves. You can't except a laptop at OfficeMax that has been sitting there for 3 weeks to be better then one you configured. People really need to learn how to buy laptops.

Be prepared to pay your purchase off before the no-interest promotion ends, or else you're gonna have a nice chunk of built-up interest you'll have to pay. Other than that, I have a newegg preferred account which uses Bill Me Later, and it's a great way to finance something, so long as you can afford it.

I am Not talking about the envy series.

you guys are a joke, you admit everybody says HP sucks, but then you try to rationalize it in an attempt to justify your purchase.

They have that reputation for a reason....they earned it!

ordering from whoever and choosing options doesnt get you a better PC

since you already bought it, good luck.
