I bought OEM from new egg for almost $1000 and was quite shocked when doing a google product search to see it for $699. The caveat though is that it is a processor upgrade for the HP. What are the differences between HP and OEM and can I safely return mine to get the HP and save a few $$?
HP upgrade is for HP systems and warranted by HP. AFAIK, no HP system means no warranty. Nothing else - they are both bare procs in a protective shell.
