Guy is selling this brand new for 500, so its a good deal, but he claims HP support told him windows 7 wont work.
Sounds to me like they are all noobs, I see no reason for this to be the case unless the laptop is outdated.

Here is another site that offers drivers, but as you'll notice there is no windows 7 support for the chipset, and the graphics card doesn't list the correct model:

What do you think? Thanks!

It happens. Large manufacturers like that aren't interested in supporting multiple OSs for laptops. They validate what they load up works and that's what they support.

I have a laptop from 2007 that still has hosed up sound in Win 7 since it came with Vista and they didn't realease a driver.

Sometimes there are workarounds but it's a crapshoot.

a 500$ laptop that cant run windows 7 is not a good deal.
