The HP DV6 is available with an IPS display.
Here is a copy/pasted configuration that I recommend to those looking to buy the laptop for gaming purposes. Since you aren't looking at gaming, feel free to drop the GPU to integrated graphics. But note: The price-before-coupon must be $899 for the coupon to work. $899+coupon=$699.HP DV6t
(i3-3110M, NVIDIA GT 650M, 15.6" 1920x1080 matte IPS display) - $724 + tax
($769 + tax w/ i5-3210M)
- Use coupon code: NBY8552
- Don't: Downgrade to the 1366x768 display, unless you need the large text. You generally shouldn't buy the HP DV6 in any configuration that includes the 1366x768 display. 15.6" 1366x768 displays make things onscreen large, and tend to be low-tier LCD panels with very poor image quality due to low contrast.
- Consider: Backlit keyboard, Larger/faster HDD.
