Feature for feature HP is cheaper than most other brands of laptops on the market.

I picked up a 18.4" HP Core i5 with 640GB for ~$1100 after taxes and shipping, that price wouldn't be possible a couple years ago.
I got a 15" Samsung for AU$800, Core i3 with a HD545v, best price for that hardware even compared to the others...Which were all Turion IIs running Integrated or Core i3s with Integrated.

Ok....so what's you're point?

In case you missed it, current discussion is about bloatware.

Not about who got better deals on laptops.

I was looking over some laptop on HP, and found this one. http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/sh.../dv6tse_series


that's great for the price,
15.6 inch screen, i5 Dual 2.53 (2.8ghz)
HD 5650 (you can play games some what well!)
6GBs DDR3, 640GB HD - are there any laptops better then this for $750?

I'm asking because I'm buying one soon!

Its like calling Apple up and asking them for help with a problem. They send you some diagnostic utilities and you have a freak out because you're using Windows and their help tools only run on OSX.
Yes you are right.. Unfortunately He did realized lost his windows ID after formatted a factory windows OS With Linux OS. Then HP was in denial to help owner, due lack of Window ID#. HP blamed it. HP is right.

I was pointing out that's simply not true, especially considering that the HP Bloatware made my friends Core i3 370M feel like a Pentium 3 1Ghz.

They shouldn't need a Windows application to get computer ID and stuff, they should have a god-damn sticker on the bottom like every other laptop in existence, even finding the model number (As in, the full one.) is a real PITA due to it being under the battery.

Like I said, the reason why there is bloatware is the reason why laptops are so cheap. Without bloatware that same laptop will probably cost 2x the price.

I'm never implied how bloatware affects the performance of laptops. I don't know what lead you to think so.
Shhhhh!

How so? Why would the lack of a "HP Wireless Assisstant" that does nothing but what Windows can in a slow GUI.

They eat up resources, quite honestly the difference between the Windows 7 x64 with Bloatware and without the bloatware on that HP laptop was massive.

Check out the notebook review forums. There are HUGE discounts on HP laptops all the time (up to $500 I have heard of). Get an Envy or the notebook that is based around the same shape/construction its much nicer and there is more attention to detail... less clunky... The one you linked is an older body.

I totally agree. Thats in an ideal world. They made a mistake and assumed you would be using Windows. They aren't in the wrong though. They never claimed to support Linux and probably don't see the value in writing code to retrieve the ID in Linux. I am sure they would rather deal with the issue on a per case basis.
