Why is this laptop so expensive?

Hi,

HP HDX 18t Premium Laptop 320 GB HD QUAD CORE INTEL - eBay (item 180367099911 end time Jun-19-09 12:29:46 PDT)


This is much more expensive than the other quadcore laptops, why?


Would it be even more expensive with 7400 rpm?



Cheers

I have no idea but it's SO not worth the money. Maybe if it had the 2.5 GHz quad as that chip cost about $800 on its own.

if your doing anything audio related, need a laptop, and don't give a fig about battery life NOTHING touches the Clevo/Sager I7. ADK sells it, you can search for it cheaper online but if you get it from ADK it's guaranteed to work.

ADK Pro Audio offers Apple Workstations for: Nuendo, Pro Tools, Sequoia, Samplitude, Cubase SX, Sonar 3, Pro Audio components, Pro Audio hardware, Pro Audio software

If you ain't in a rush, the "real" mobile I5/I7 laptos will be out soon. Maybe one of them might even be able to pull off a 3-hour battery.
