Maybe HP is trying to be Apple? Putting the "HP" emblem on it adds significant value to it?
Really hoping that MS doesn't expect everyone to just abandon Windows 7 for 8, and that the laptop manufacturers will still offer Win7 operating system. Otherwise, I'll have no reason to ever bother with another Windows system.
"Nowadays, security guys break the Mac every single day. Every single day, they come out with a total exploit, your machine can be taken over totally. I dare anybody to do that once a month on the Windows machine." -- Bill Gates
