i7, 1TB hard drive, 8GB ram.
I didnt see much talk about this either. Mine already shipped and will arrive soon I hope.

Wait -- that Envy at $629.99 is a pretty sick deal. Better than what I got for BF (Dell XPS 15z with Intel Core i7-2640M @ 2.80GHz and less memory and RAM).
Am I missing something?

Here are the complete specs on the Envy at Best Buy if you want to compare.

Thanks cnlsfg, I compared -- and I think that my BF deal sucked in comparison. Here are the specs on the Dell XPS 15z. The only thing better on the Dell are: 1) screen size (but downside is weight) and 2) 8 cell battery. The processor for the Envy is benchmarked at 7351, versus 4168 for the Dell (higher is better).
So . . . I just bought the Envy and will return the Dell.

The ASUS Zenbook also comes with a super annoying fan that'll definitely drive you crazy. It also provides some free backlight bleeding. (I'm not hating on ASUS here as I am actually an ASUS fan but the Zenbook is expensive and it comes with plenty of unfixed issues.)
