The DreamColor screen, in case you're wondering, is made with an IPS panel and provides 133% Adobe RGB coverage, 100% sRGB coverage, and has a resolution of 1920x1200 -- but it also adds $550+ to the order. Other noteworthy hardware choices consist of a 256GB SSD, a Blu-ray or secondary storage drive, a 2-megapixel webcam, Pro editions of Windows XP through 7 (or FreeDOS), and seemingly every connectivity option you could want, including mobile broadband.
The EliteBook 8740w is available through HP now, and the most basic setup will set you back around $2,000, with higher end configurations reaching $3,899 and beyond (I got it well over $6k).
