      Here is a new laptop from HP that I would not mind owning.  It is their new EliteBook 8740w.  There are stock configurations but how about this custom configuration:


      i7-940QM Extreme Processor 2.13 GHz

      17" 1920 x 1200 Antiglare DreamColor LED display

      nVidia Quadro FX 5000m 2GB

      32 GB DDR3 1333 MHz RAM (about $9,000 for this memory alone)

      Two 500 GB 7200RPM drives (SSD's available)

      Two USB3 I/O ports


      Many other features but for some strange reason the OS that is included is FreeDOS without other upgrade options

      All this for only $14,816 plus a current 18% discount ($12,149.12), maybe I will buy a new car instead.


      First time I have seen a laptop from one of the big boys that really can be a real NLE candidate.
