Precision - Very powerful desktop replacements - great warranty, ridiculously expensive - Usually overpriced or overkill

Latitude - Good Laptops - Great warranty! Highly recommended for any Business environment - Sometimes expensive.

Vostro  - Lower end Business Machines - Better Priced - still durable - Usually 1 Year warranty.

XPS - The nicer looking dell machines, Some are better than others...

Inspiron - YMMV Every model is different

(Plain) Insprion Series - Dells lowest end laptop

Bestbuy has a 14" i7 envy laptop, but HP website doesn't seem to.
A 14" i7 envy is exactly what I'm looking for but I'd like to be able to customize it a little which I can't do as Bestbuy AFAIK.  (And to get it cheaper with some HP coupon would be a bonus)

The one at bestbuy is the closest I've seen to what i want, (14", thin, light, i7) other than XPS for double the price and I kinda need it soonish but am just not satisfied with the specs and would love to be able to get it through HP and customize a little.

Is there any way to know whether HP will have such a laptop available trough their website?
Any other ideas?

Add options of $100 to get over $899 then use coupon NEWPC150
 http://www.shopping.hp.com/en_US/home-office/-/products/Laptops/HP-ENVY/E4T17AV?aid=38293&pbid=iH2PRtf/I7g&AOID=35252&siteid=iH2PRtf_I7g-W8.0VzrsKHxxo9tNu4pfng

If anyone missed this and regrets it, it currently has a $70 instant rebate, and after adding some options, the sales rep on the phone gave me another $75 off, so I ended up getting $145 off. Pretty much the same deal.

Any recommendations on a replacement for a Sony Z12? 13", 1080p+, i7, 16GB RAM, 256GB+ SSD, good battery life, and preferably an optical drive.

Doesn't necessarily have to be a deal. I know its gonna be expensive, I'm just wondering what there is out there with these sort of specs as I haven't found much.

I really like the Lenovo X1 Carbon but its only got a 1440x900 screen.

The Z12 only had 8GB RAM and a 128GB SSD and I paid $2k back in 12/2010.
