I do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it's useful. Google "useful linkage" and there it is.

How does that compare to the IBM 486?

Quadcore, 8GB RAM, Blu-Ray drive, and Windows Home 64-Bit? I dunno... I think I kinda like this deal. I've bought a few refurbished items and have not had any major issues, and I don't mind HP products, as I haven't had any super bad experiences with them. I'd say, this is a thumbs up deal.

Terabyte. Refers to hard disk space.

TB = terrabyte (1,000 GB). They are referencing the Harddrive storage space.

Well, that depends on what measuring medium you use...part of that whole "deception" thing people talk about. But yes, it's about 1000GB (931.8 on the HD I got today)

It sounds really nice, but can it play Grand Theft Auto IV and the Steam games?

That is true, but I didn't want to get to technical. It's 1,000GB true space, but after formatting, only about 95% or so of that is generally writable. The rest goes into a lot of other recovery tables, etc.

I'd love to say this is a great deal, but since I just paid $899 for it at Best Buy 2 weeks ago I'm going to grumble instead.

I hooked this up to a 36" lcd and use it almost exclusively for media. I love it, fast, quiet and more than enough memory.

It also plays Starcraft II without a hiccup, which was a consideration.

My only problem, and I may just be an inattentive armadillo, is that no matter how many screen adjustments I make I cannot get the entire screen to fit within the 36 inches.

At this price, this is a steal. Albeit a late one...

Actually...it doesn't. It's a technical difference between how things are measured (binary versus something or other..it's been a few years). You're talking about the space taken up by the OS once it's formatted.

Terabyte...of storage on the hard drive. Basically, over 1,000 gigabytes of storage.

1,024 megabytes = 1 gigabyte

1,024 gigabytes = 1 terabyte

1,048,576 (1,024 squared) megabytes = 1 terabyte

This is really a fantastic deal. Also dont actually expect 1000 GB it will more likely be around 850 GB

I feel bad for starting this whole hard drive measuring thing. =X

Let's look at the blu-ray player instead and argue about that. ;D

With the build quality I've experienced in high-powered laptops lately, I'd rather use a yellow legal pad and a #2 pencil (I'm looking at you, Alienware M17x-R2 that I've had 3 replacements of so far).

If I didn't have a kid arriving at the end of the month, I'd be tempted to get this rig for myself at the pricepoint.

edit: nightghost, you are otterific in these threads. I just wanted to say that.

Yes, 1024 GB should be a terabyte, but it is in fact 1000 GB. Macs actually now deem 1000 mb as a GB
