It looks like Windows PC makers are starting to gang up on Apple's MacBook Air. Earlier this week we pointed out that Dell dropped the price on its ultra-think Adamo by a pair of Benjamins, and now Hewlett-Packard is following suit with a price cut of its own.
You can now pick up HP's 13-inch Envy for $1,000 courtesy of a $450 instant rebate. That's a savings of about 31 percent and drops the Envy 13 below that of a 13-inch Macbook Air.
The $1,000 configuration ships with an Intel Core 2 Duo SL9300 processor clocked at 1.6GHz, 3GB of DDR3 memory, 250GB (5400RPM) hard drive, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 graphics, 8X DVD burner, "Beats Audio," 802.11a/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, and an all metal chassis measuring 12.59 (W) x 8.46 (D) x 0.8 (H) inches and weighing 3.68 pounds.
