HP.com has their 17" HP dv7z Notebook for $729.99 after a $150 instant discount. Add $120 in upgrades and enter 30% off $999 coupon code NB3434 to cut the price to $699.99 (expires 11/16; coupon negates instant discount). I would add the 3GB of memory (it says Free Upgrade, but it actually costs $50), 250GB hard drive ($50), and the webcam/fingerprint reader combo ($25). This configuration gets your total to $1004.99, or $703.49 after the coupon. It also comes with a 2.1GHz AMD dual-core processor, 160GB hard drive, DVD / CD burner, wireless networking, and Windows Vista Home Premium. Shipping is free and sales tax is charged in most states.
