Does the keyboard lighting flash to the throb of the bass, or has Apple already patented that, too? But seriously I'm glad that HP has decided to stay in the computer manufacturing business! They have good products that are reasonably priced, IMO. What other manufacturer offers an illustrated disassembly manual for it's laptops - right down to the motherboard?
SPAM-posters beware! ®
The beats edition looks really nice :)
@Super Dave at least with the business class machines I can get full dis-assembly instructions from Dell as well without having to be a certified Dell technician.
