If everything works out with my bing cashback, my final price would be about $477. I also got 6 months - no payments. What do you think ?

It was hard for me to buy an AMD computer as I have always used Intel. I hope I like it. I got screwed on the same HP series computer on black friday from Staples. The only difference is after rebates I would have payed $437. So this one is $40 more. BUT has the AMD m300 instead of Intel T4300, 320gb hard drive instead of 250gb hard drive, and ATI 4200 HD 128mb graphics instead of Intel 4500 MHD graphics. So I hope I got a good buy. HP had $150 instant rebate, plus I should get $25 back for using Bill my later, plus I should get about $110 back from the Bing 20% cashback.
IF you get all your rebates, then i'd say you got a screaming deal

What is this Bing 20% cashback youre talking about?

Now HP is having their cyber monday sale. The core 2 duo version got cheaper. I wonder if theres any way to switch my order. With the cashback and everything I think it would only come out to $42 more to have the core 2 duo T6600 instead of AMD M300 and 4gb DDR3 instead of 4gb DDR2. The only downgrade is going from ATI 4200 HD to the Intel 4500 MHD graphics. You think I should see if I could switch for about $50 more? Better chip, faster ram with less graphics?

Bing.com - microsofts search engine. If you enter certain stores through their search engine, they offer different amounts of cashback on your order. HP is 20% now. Pretty high.
