(could be cheaper for some as California tax is pretty high)

Thought this was a pretty sick deal considering the new a10-4600m + 7660m Xfire config makes for some decent gaming and all for UNDER $700!?

Maybe it's just me but am I missing the 2nd video card required for the XFire? Also, in my personal experience, HP computers use pretty horrible quality components, you get a lot for your money spec wise but quality wise is seriously lacking. I previously mentioned my experience of purchasing a wireless card in the configuration of my HP desktop that never worked. Before sending the PC in for repair I moved my wireless router next to my case and lo-and-behold, I received signal. Kind of defeats the purpose tho doesn't it?

The a10-4600 has a built in 7660g so the second would be the 1gb amd hd 7660m. Those working together in crossfire would outperform a 7730m quite easily actually. Also, if you notice the 7200rpm 750gb hdd.

I haven't had any problems with their laptops, as i've owned 2 prior to the one I'm showing above. Everyones had bad experiences with every single brand at some point or another.

Yeah, but just try and get that configuration at any other manufacturer for that price, all I'm saying is, if it looks too good to be true, it usually is!

Orrr pretty much everything you purchase on HP comes with some kind of free upgrade.... they are hardly one-time deals. You work for HP or something? lol ;)

Not denying that its a good gamer for the price, I just like the products I buy to last for more than 2 years considering I take great care in keeping them in nearly new condition inside and out (which I have been unable to do with my HP purchases, my dell laptop is going on 4 1/2 years of heavy use, although I am not much of a Dell fan anymore either)!

how so?
i believe the gfx cards in the hp I listed are both rated higher than that 630m.
not to mention in the hp there's a 7200rpm 750gb hdd and 6gb RAM in the HP.

Doesn't seem right.

Looking at them further, all three GPUs seem to trade punches depending on the game. You'd need to seriously consider which games you play. Personally, the larger screen would win out in the end, though.

Okay since some people are clearly wrong (the 630m is the weakest GPU listed not even close to the best).
This is the order of worst (gaming) to best (of the 4 listed above).
worst 630m http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-630M.637...
better 7670m http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-7670M.69483....
even better 555m http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-555M.419...
best 7730m http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-7730M.72678....

So now with how the GPU's perform in games (per the links) you can decide just how much you want to spend. What I'm planning on getting is just an A10 for college and have a dedicated gaming PC at home.

You're obviously not looking at the individual games and comparing. You can't just look at one benchmark.

Batman Arkham City has it:
7670M
630M
555M

BattleField 3 has it:
7670M
555M
630M

Dirt Showdown has it:
630M
7670M
555M

I looked at the average and actually this is how it goes for the GPU in BF3 (which is the main game I normally look at).

Medium settings-
630m 23fps
7670m 25fps
7730m 32fps
555m 32.3fps

Didn't bother to check other titles.
