By "long life", HP is referring to their green battery that can suposedly sustain over 1,000 recharges and maintain "like-new" performance for three years. Pricing and availability in the States has not been determined, but the dv8 is set to crush shelves in the UK starting on Windows 7 launch day (October 22nd) starting at around $2000.

Never buy an HP. My girlfriends HP has been crippled since birth by HP's own bloatware movie program which constantly reinstalls itself. HP's movie service (I can't recall the name atm) has since been shut down however the crapware continues to reinstall. There IS NO customer service for HP.
