See the contest site for the full rules. Sure wish I could enter. Good luck!!!
Sorry this is off topic, but I'm looking for a new laptop right now and my spec is simple, I want a 15 inch windows machine with an internal optical drive, and a dual or quad core processor that's as thin and light as a macbook pro. The Envy 15 appears to work (the i7 proceessor is quad core, right?), but why can't they get a slot loading dvd drive in that package size like apple can?
Nobody even seems to be trying. You get thick and clunky or no internal dvd.
You should probably check out the Dell Studio XPS. It has a slot load optical drive, i7, etc. Looks like a nice machine and it was my second choice for 1st prize in this contest.
