CP Laptop Config- Please Help!

Hi all,

I am in need of a new gaming rig and wanted to go mobile. I was considering buying a gaming rig off cyberpower PCand take advantage of the black Friday deals going on. This is my first time using CP and am a little unsure if everything I have selected will properly integrate into the laptop. Do they only allow you to choose options that will work with each other?


Here is the setup I have selected to purchase:

Xplorer X6-9120 Gaming Notebook

Notebook: A15FD Gaming Notebook 15.6" Full HD 1920x1080 Display w/ Built-in 1.3MP Webcam, HDMI Port, Li-Ion Battery, & Universal AC Adapter

Video Card: NVIDIA GT 640M 2GB PCIe Video

Hard Drive: 750GB 7200RPM SATA300 Hard Drive OR 1 TB 5400RPM SATA300 Hard Drive [-15$] (which do you recommend?)

^^Important...If i can get windows 7 from Microsoft dreamspark(free MFST software for college students) should I select no operating system? How would I go about installing Win7?

Sorry for all the questions. I am quite the noob here haha. The deal ends in 20 hours so I hope someone can help me out.

Thanks in advance for your help!

    As for installing win 7, just insert the dvd and boot up from it

    Well the windows 7 is a download from MSFTdreamspark.com so I wont have a disk...ideas?

    Also do you think that $850 for this setup is a good deal?
  3. the download should be an iso you ca put on a disk.
    and 840 is a good deal
