Well, a few additional questions really help out when making suggestions.

Do you want a touch screen?

What operating system (Windows 7, Windows 8)?

Do you want bluetooth? For some reason HP doesn't like bluetooth, so keep that in mind.

Anything is fine for these options, I could do without in these areas if it will be cheaper. I'm mostly just concerned with getting a good deal/something fast. Thanks!

The link for that should be:

http://www.shopping.hp.com/en_US/home-office/-/products/Laptops/HP-ENVY/J3G66AV?HP-ENVY-15t-Select-Laptop

Unfortunately, the configuration page that you provided has the laptop information stored in the browser session. So it doesn't work to link to that page. It is true that from there you should click on the "customize and buy" option to get to the configuration screen.

Getting an HD display (1920 x 1080) is a definite requirement for most people. It provides more display to use for day to day tasks. As jaguarskx mentioned, HP charges an additional $50 for this.

I would also recommend adding bluetooth for an additional $10 if you want that HP.
