and what do you think about the overheating ?!
some people say that hp is not good for programming because of the fast overheat of the processor .... and if u think its not good which laptop do you recommended for me (in the same range of budget)
hp laptops arent the best just for what you explained. but depending on how much code you are going to be compiling it really shouldnt tax the cpu that much . gaming is the thing to stay away from on hps. really anything that uses the graphics and cpu at the same time is a no for hp. i had 2 hp pavillions one with that same processor in it and both got ripping hot even after replacing the thermal compound.
if you go this route invest in a nice cooling pad, im not sure how this compared to my dv6-dv7
