HP dv2910us: my wife's new laptop

Purchased this stunning beauty yesterday from Fry's ... in a special 2 day offer... got this for $679 USD + $52 taxes - $50 mailing rebate... (hope my friend collects it and gives it to me... i am leaving for india in 4 days :( !)... effectively $680 USD (under 30 thousand INR)

I am generally getting lucky with Frys... last time i purchased Jabra 125 @ half price on a single day offer and this time 20% discount on one of the hot selling brands in Laptops..

Just checked the prices in india for HP Pavilion pieces.. they range anywhere from  50000 to 60000 rupees.... man we are talking of 20000 -30000 saving... that's big :D... lucky me.

It comes with headphones and remote control.. completely built for ENTERTAINMENT... my wife got to love it :D

Some SPECS directly from the HP Website

Enjoy entertainment at the touch of a button. Chat face-to-face or take video clips with the webcam and integrated microphone. Watch, pause, and record live TV with the optional TV tuner. The Pavilion dv2910us Entertainment Notebook has you covered, and with its sophisticated-looking Radiance finish, it looks great to boot.
