I bought a 13" MBP about a month ago. Lowest version off refurb. I think it was $999? (or was it $1099). Anyway, added 4GB RAM for $70 and a 500GB HDD for something like a $100. So, tops it was like $1300 thereabouts. I read about the new laptops that are being released to support Win 7. Dropped into the HP site (can't stand Dell). Saw this nice looking laptop called "Envy13." Wow! Look what you get! http://www.shopping.hp.com/webapp/s...series_name=ENVY13_series&a1=Category&v1=ENVY 1.86C2D 3GB RAM 250GB HDD 13" non-LED screen Built in webcam Standard Battery No optical drive (though blu ray is supported on an external) Tiny Track pad 65W adapter Dimensions 12.5" X 8.5" X 1", 3.68lbs (vs. 12.7" X 9" X 1", 4.5lbs for the MBP 13") All for just $1699! $2200 if I configure it close to my MBP. What a deal! Am I missing something?? Is there a new "HP" or "Windows 7" tax?? Now, maybe they're saying it competes with the MBA, but the air can be had refurb for $1099 in similar specs to the HP base, and it's 3.0 lbs and only needs a 45W adapter.
