    Congrats on purchasing the new notebook! I have to say, HP did a good job with the configuration options this time around. :)

    Waiting on mine as well, and since I passed on the HP msata cache option I'll be waiting a bit longer for a 64gb version of one of these to arrive AnandTech - Micron C400 mSATA (128GB) SSD Review Depending on price these seem like they will be by far the best options out there.

    just bear in mind this, when you choose not to pick the HP's mSSD, HP will send the unit out without the wires and connector for mSATA, that's what I have heard from Envy 14 users

    Total with a case... just under $1200

    My 4 yr old dv6 is feeling way too outdated. Was going to hold off for the ivy envy but this has everything I was looking for and I couldn't pass up the $400 off deal. If I am not satisfied I will return, simple as that.
