Hi folks, I in the process of buying a new laptop for my college. The thing is, I want a big screen laptop (17 inch) since it's going to be a desktop replacement and I won't be moving it around much. I wanted to buy the 17 inch MBP, but first I did some research to compare similar laptops from other OEMs and I got to tell ya, the price difference is massive!. First I customized an HP dv7tqe series, with everything a MBP 17 inch has, (except from screen, HP has 1080p analysis, MBP has 1920x1200). Everything else is same like processor, ram (8GB). HP has Blu Ray reader which Mac doesn't have (don't you think it's time?). Also HP has ATI 6770 1GB, while MBP has 6750. Well, price of HP is $1455, whille MBP is $2700!!!!. I mean really? I want so much to try osX but for $1245 is too much. Can anyone justify the $1245 more? Also I saw the Dell XPS17 series, which even with 3D Screen and Blu Ray, 7200rpm HDD 750GB, it's still $1151 cheaper that the MBP which has less hardware. Why such an overkill in price? I just don't get it. Can anyone shade some light into this?
