This week HP updated the mid-ranged graphics card upgrade option on their dv6t Quad Edition laptop series. They replaced the old GeForce GT 630M 1GB with a GeForce GT 635M 2GB. The old GT 630M card could run most 2011 games on medium to high settings but now the GT 635M can run most 2012 games on medium to high settings… and with no price increase to the buyer. In fact this week an HP dv6 Quad with GeForce GT 635 is $155 cheaper than one equipped with the GeForce GT630M last week. While not the most high end gaming rig it’s only $760, whereas you’d normally expect to pay $1,000 for a gaming capable laptop.

Next week Thursday, V-Day, approaches. If you’re looking for a bargain gift check out the 1800Flowers deal on eBay. Right now you can buy a voucher for $15 which will get you $30 of 1800Flowers products at their store. Deal ends this week Friday at 9am Eastern.
