Best Buy’s going to have at least 15 HP Pavilion dv6407nr notebooks at each store for $449, a $200 discount. The retailer will also offer the dv6407nr bundled with an Epson all-in-one printer, notebook bag, TrendMicro AntiVirus and wireless mouse for $549.
The HP Pavilion dv6407nr comes with 1GB of memory, 160GB hard drive and DVD RW burner. It includes an AMD Athlon X2 processor and standard 6-cell battery.
The dv6407nr bundle for $549 is only worth it if you really do need all of the accessories listed, even though Best Buy is trying to promote the bundle as $440 in instant savings. It will be very difficult to score one anyways, since there will be as few as three dv6407nr bundles at each Best Buy store on Black Friday.
The HP Pavilion dv6407nr is a retail version of the HP’s Pavilion dv6400 series. You won’t find this exact model number at other retailers besides Best Buy during Black Friday, but you can compare it to others that start with “HP Pavilion dv64,” followed by two numbers which signify the exact specs.
If you don’t want to wait in line on Black Friday, keep an eye on Best Buy’s discount page, or customize your own directly with HP. The dv6407nr has some decent specs, but I strongly recommend 2GB of RAM, which can be added later. One thing missing from the dv6407nr is a web cam, which can be added on to the dv6500z at HP’s direct store.
