    I agree with you they offered the Radiance as standard spec to get all us early-adopters and hopefully we dish out "good" reviews so the average joe's start saying "heck, it got good reviews AND it looks like a Macbook Pro for cheaper so I'll jump on it" while unbeknownst to them they are getting a cheaper display for a conceived $100 off original release price.

    My post was just to elaborate what the comments made in the link e14 posted may mean.

    About to clean install a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate, wish me luck, I'll be back if I screw anything up,lol.

    I think that is part of the MediaSmart stuff.

    Oh yea no worries. I am just disgusted with HP. They haven't done anything wrong or out of the ordinary, I suppose, but their misleading information is disappointing nonetheless.

    Then there's the botched releases of new laptops by Acer and Asus. Just a frustrating few months!

    Besides obvious fact of additional 2GB of memory you'll get full support of dual-channel memory.

    I still haven't figured out how to make it come back with the mediasmart stuff.


    I just used 3rvx instead (check the first page). you have to run it once after installing for it to show up. It defaults to emulating a mac's OSD but you can change it and/or use an envy skin that someone made (not the same as the envy 14 OSD...though it was made for the Envy 15 or 17 I think...and I don't think the 15 or 17 has the same OSD as the 14)

    Exactly.

    If HP would have dropped the prices, the early adopters would be pissed. Since they raised it $100 a few that haven't ordered yet are pissed.

    Personally, I don't see what the big deal is. Companies raise and lower prices every day. I'll consider myself lucky as long as HP doesn't drop the price 30%, to negate my BCB, anytime soon.
