    I am looking at purchasing a new laptop. It is advertised as coming with Windows 7 Home Premium. Is that a 32 or 64 bit operating system?

    Thank you - I will take a look at your site. I like Costco because they extend the manufacturer's warranty an extra year and they will take the computer back (no questions asked and no restocking fee) within 90 days.

    LenC, using PassMark as a benchmark, the Costco laptop, with an Intel Core i5 M 430 @ 2.27GHz, ranks higher than the jr.com laptop's Intel Core i3 M 330 @ 2.13GHz.

    Pros & Cons

    • The Costco Pro is its CPU and its price.
    • The jr.com Pro is its memory, expandable to 8GB (the Costco specs does not tell you whether additional memory can be installed).
    • The jr.com laptop also has Bluetooth (Costco does not say).

    • The jr.com Con is its CPU and its price.
    • The Costco Con is that it has a Wireless-G card, versus a Wireless B/G/N card on the jr.com. However, I'm also running a G card in my HP Pavilion dv6-2066dx, with a Belkin N+ router, and it's super fast.

    By the time I got back to the Costco website (less than 24 hours later) this particular product had been removed. In its place at nearly the same price was an I3 computer.

    Oh well - not sure I was ready to pull the trigger anyway.

    JrViejo - thank you for your analysis.

    LenC, you're welcome!

    Check out Newegg.com as well. They have good pricing, with either very low shipping charges or none at all! Sign up for their E-Blast and save even more. Take care.

    I went with the HP Pavilion dv7-3110TX Notebook PC It is in my opinion amongst the on top of the pile in high performance notebooks. it cost me almost $3000 here in Australia, but after removing the HP installation and installing the windows 7 professional x54 i have, i must say it certainly cuts the mustard :cool:
