For me these seem pretty good for a laptop with a $900 price tag and Apple-like sex appeal (it has a sleek black and red design and is plastered with the Beats by Dr. Dre logo). I'm seriously considering purchasing this laptop now, as they seem to be going fast (Wal Mart and Sears just ran out of stock, Newegg seems to be the only place left).
Would you recommend that I go for it, or go for something else in the same price range? If the latter, what would you suggest?
Would I be able to get a 2011 model with that processor and graphics card for my price range? I heard something about the new Envy coming out in a couple of weeks with those but the article quoted the expected price as $1700.
I'm not looking for top of the line, I'm just wondering how this stands up as a year-old model. My current laptop has a Pentium M 1.6GHz single core processor, 512MB of RAM, 80GB hard drive... The Envy 14 is a huge upgrade for me no matter what.
