tsunzilla, I think they do that to make it a collectors item, so that they can charge more for it, But it sure is pretty….I wouldn’t mind having it. I really like the copper color. It is a well thought out note book. HP is really moving up in the market-place.
I agree with you that HP is really moving up in the market-place. I personally have loved HP for a while in my young life and they have made some really good decisions on designs which in my opinion have really helped them gain much market share and that’s why people are buying their computers. For example, they started doing the etching designs on their laptops to make them cooler and stand out from other notebooks which all look the same as Andru mentions. Furthermore, they have also made all (if not most) of their desktops Black and Silver. Those colors are very desirable to consumers because they look very nice and sleek. To be honest, I believe that they learned this idea from Apple products such as the aluminum iMac and iPhone with Black plastic and Aluminum.
Also, about this laptop, I do agree that this laptop is very desirable because of the sleek copper finish. It will definitely stand out in a crowd or if your riding in a bus or train people will be looking out of their corner eye because they can’t get it off that gorgeous laptop . Nice job HP!
Furthermore, I’m not sure when GearLive started putting the specs and “whats in the box” and other information in their videos but I think that it’s a very good idea as an overview and just so they can keep track of what your looking at. Very convenient and I haven’t seen this in many videos so I’ll also say that its innovative as well. Nice idea Andru and the rest of the GearLive squad.
