It's not a Haswell (http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:rNwBt0MAtM4J:ark.intel.com/products/70846+&cd=2&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us ) and it's from HP.
My last HP failed at 3 months and 9 months later it was still out of service. I'd find another maker.
Hi, I'm buying a laptop for which I'll be reimbursed. There are limited options available, but there is a ~$2K budget. I customized the HP laptop below that comes out to about $2K. I'd appreciate any tips / advice / comments on it. My priority is speed/performance. Thanks
