  1. HP's refreshed dv6 and dv7 series notebooks first appeared in stores overseas last December, and with Intel's chipset issues nearly resolved, the systems are finally available stateside. Both machines are powered by Intel's latest quad-core Core i7 processors, with 2.0GHz (i7-2630QM), 2.2GHz (i7-2720QM) and 2.3GHz (i7-2820QM) chips available.

    I wonder how soon Lenovo is going to offer these cpus. This is where AMD is missing out though their Fusion E-350 appears to be doing well.

    You mean RELAUNCHED their sandybridge notebooks.

    HP launched them, and I advised my sister to get one (which she did through Bestbuy), then they silently pulled them due to the chipset issue. She never received any recall notice or anything - but her laptop had some major issues so she took it back to Bestbuy which did take the return, but didn't tell her about any recall either.

    Looking around i found some notice that HP was taking replacements, but no reference on HPs site at all. I guess they are trying to distance themselves from this issue as much as possible. I would have liked a lot more transparency on all sides (Intel, HP, BestBuy)

    Very true. Transparency and Best Buy is like oil and water.
