I know that not everyone is in the market for a laptop, but regarding the HP Envy 15, HP has just increased its prices and I feel that the HP Envy 15's price increase was uncalled for. The Envy started out after CES at $1299.99 with a Core i5 i5-520M. The Core i7 upgrade was $150 more. Later, HP increased the price to $1399.99 and now, the price dropped back down to $1299.99 but the Core i5 has been downgraded to i5-430M. In addition to that, the Core i7 upgrade is now a whole $100 more, effectively making the upgrade to Core i7 from base model Envy $250.

I mean I don't think HP should declare the MSRP of Envy 15 with a Core i5-520M at CES and then later downgrade the processor and making specific upgrades even more expensive.

I agree jipstyle, in the market there is this thing call supply and demand, and the more demand, the higher the price goes. And I have to say that laptop blows away Alienware area 51.

Anyone forget competition? If your favorite company isn't up to snuff, then go to a competitor. Like the HP Envy, well checkout this ASUS laptop.
