I personally prefer quad cores, but anyways... as for AMD, they are better IMHO because you can overclock or in my case underclock it to have less power consumption at a non-noticeable performance decrease.

Hmmm....as always tempting HP....
All those features at such a great price....but....as many HP users have learned beauty is only skin deep with many of HPs laptops.
If you notice the large # of refurbs online available for this model...that's your 1st sign of something wrong.
Reading the reviews out there....seems HP is still not resolving its graphics chip issues in their laptops with their usual failing almost immediately after the warranty expires.
I have owned many many laptops in my years from Dell, IBM, Apple, Acer, Asus,etc...and NONE of them have ever failed and are still running save for my HPs.
Its like they time their laptops to break when you have to pay them to fix it.
I had an HP TX1000 and after the multitudes of problems with that model that HP never rectified or admitted to their customers....I can never ever recommend an HP Laptop again.
So Buyer beware.....chances are this refurb will go blank in 1-2 years so better have the extended Squaretrade warranty because HPs service is horrendous.

1) Because Macs are overpriced for what you get with proprietary hardware
2) they don't have Blu-Ray or Windows 7 pre-installed.
3) Have no idea what an ExpressCard Slot is
4) Don't have Windows Media Center
5) Still only use Core 2 Duos on cheap Macbook...no i3, i5, or i7 processors......or AMD Processors to boot
6) Are only 13.3" for normal macbooks...if you want a 17" screen you are gonna pay 2300$ for a Pro model
7) No HDMI Port (which is available now on the lowliest NETBOOK)
