Re: Less is more?

I found out that I can buy adapters that will link my esata external drives through a USB port, so that is one major hurdle out of the way for the dv6tqe or the dv7qe.

Next step is to hope they have a 15" and a 17 inch screen at best buy so I can see how much more difficult it is to handle the extra pound. The 15" is 5.66 lbs and the 17" is 6.94 lbs. Hope to go there today.

I will need to buy the system from HP so I can configure it. Configuration, other than the screen size is the same. It's only $50 more for the 17" laptop.

I have a few questions about configuring the PC which will be better posted in a separate thread.

I'll print out my configuration. Please comment if you have any advice! And thank you for all your help.
