I'm afraid we will have to invoke the DMCA if you keep asking such questions, obviously you intend to pirate our innovations by copying such detailed specs.

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

Good looking laptop,....How Much is it?

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

More detailed specs can be found here. Looks like pricing will be from $1100-1300 to start. and screen res is going to be 720p or 1366x768 with the CPU being a Core 2 Solo SU3500 running @ 1.4ghz  not too shabby for a 4.5 lb full size laptop. The price is quite expensive for what you get..
