  1. Specs look fine. How much does it cost?

    $800.
  3. Nice, A10 fast enough and low power. And games. Will need external mouse so grab one for gaming.

    Suggest you sign up for the $15 win8 offer for people who buy win7 ststems now (if HP doesn't include a free future upgrade). You never know when you might want to try it (although win8 looks not so great right now). google it.

    Aside: SSD prices have really fallen. If you burned your recovery media, slapped in a 120 GB SSD for less then $100 and then restored your system from the recovery media you'd have a laptop with slightly longer batter life that would boot much faster. Here is a relaible Samsung drive, there are also Sandforce drives, etc. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147163 Clearly number of games stored suffers with a 120GB drive vs. your spinning 640GB.
