I've been researching and shopping hard for a new notebook for months now. HP just came out with an option that caused me to pull the trigger. For a review go here:
Yesterday I ordered my new Dv4000 with the ATI X700 GPU... a very nice video card. Got it configured pretty nicely for $1220.11 (including a free second battery). The price did include a 6% academic discount, but doesn't include the $50.00 rebate that I'll be sending in after recept of the machine. This was, by far, the best deal I've found on a fairly high end machine.
