HP put up the Pavilion Quad Edition dv6t and dv7t for sale a quarter ago, and most people who took a look at it were quite happy with what they saw, although certain quarters saw the 1,600 x 900 resolution as inadequate for the 15.6″ and 17.3″ displays. Well, things might have just taken a turn for the better with both models now being made available with 1080p displays, letting you view all your Full HD videos on your notebook – as long as you are willing to fork out an additional $150.
Apart from the option to pick up a new Full HD display by ponying up extra dough, you will still rock to the range of quad-core Core i7 2GHz processors, an AMD Radeon HD 6490M graphics card with 1GB video memory, 4GB RAM, and 640GB hard drives. HP has also decided to play Santa this summer by throwing in free upgrades to 6GB RAM and 750GB hard drive space, although there is no legitimate word on how long such a promotion will be valid for.
Just bear in mind before you whip out that credit card – 1080p displays are only an option on the Quad Edition models and the dv6t Select Edition, so you cannot have the dv6 or dv7t in your sights and expect a similar upgrade path. If you purchased the HP Pavilion Quad Edition dv6t and dv7t prior to this revelation, what are your feelings at the moment?
