As many of my colleagues rib me about, I do like the Apple Hardware. Today we at Microsoft in Sydney had a bit of a look at many OEM Windows 7 devices pre-launch.

The first I came to was the HP Envy, notable not only for its strikingly Mac like features (I'm a big fan of the low profile keyboards), metal unibody casing and curved corners.

It might not be well priced in Australia (there's a surprise - not new to any machine) but when it is announced it certainly matches the Mac's for style and pulls a hefty punch in terms of specifications. Not to mention that it can (with extra battery) run for 18 (!!) hours.

Well done HP!
