This Toshibe is $500 more expensive than this one and you get a lesser CPU - but a slightly bigger screen. And I would love the backlit keyboard on the $900 system.

Not sure where O.D. is getting them but your right sounds and looks nice.

The reason I want the Envy not just because of the good specs, but it also looks good, and btw I really don't want to get anything bigger than a 15in screen, the laptop I'm typing on right now is a 17in Gateway and this machine is big, I really want something smaller and lighter to carry around, but at the same time I want it to be a beast inside!

You have to watch out - if you cramp too many Watts into a small laptop, you may run into a heat problem. CPU, Graphics and the HDD can produce a lot of heat. I had this problem with a HP laptop. You could fry eggs on it. I solved it by replacing the HDD by a SSD (which really was my only option).

I think if you have a $1500 PC, the $200 for the SSD are justified.

Here's the Envy for less than Ebay Consumer Electronics > Computers > Portable Computers, Hewlett Packard - Search - Buy.com

I've bought items through Buy.com before. They're quick to ship, and I haven't had any problems with my purchases.

i aggree with you. But the OP was looking at a $1500 refurbished laptop and there the addl. $200 for the SSD should be OK - especially considering the gain in speed.

Are you sure it's only $200, I was trying to customize a laptop on Sony's website and I tried to add an SDD 500gb I believe and the price was $1300?
