    # • FREE Upgrade to 3GB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm) from 2GB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm)
    # • 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT
    # • 250GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
    # • HP Imprint Finish (Fluid) + Microphone + Webcam + Fingerprint Reader
    # • HP Color Matching Keyboard
    # • Intel Next-Gen Wireless-N Mini-card
    # • Blu-Ray ROM with SuperMulti DVD+/-R/RW Double Layer
    # • No TV Tuner w/remote control
    # - 6 Cell Lithium Ion Battery

    Spec #2:

    # • Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1 (64-bit)
    # • Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo Processor P8600 (2.4 GHz) 3MB L2 Cache
    # • 18.4" diagonal High Definition HP Ultra BrightView Infinity Display (1920x1080p)
    # • FREE Upgrade to 3GB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm) from 2GB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm)
    # • 512MB NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT
    # • 250GB 5400RPM SATA Hard Drive with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection
    # • HP Imprint Finish (Fluid) + Microphone + Webcam + Fingerprint Reader

    Both specs are $1,449.99
    My only concern with spec #1 is whether or not a 6 cell battery can power the graphics card.
