If you were thinking about getting the new MacBook for the holidays you might want to hold up on that purchase. Best Buy and HP teamed up to make a 13.3″ inch laptop that could change your mind.

Meet the HP Pavilion dv3510nr:

  • Standard with 4 GB of RAM + Expandable to 8 GB– the MacBook comes standard with only 2 GB. That means faster and more efficient; with the 8 GB we’re talking faster-than-Jose-Reyes computer speed 😉 .
  • 320GB hard drive— for all your music. If you want to get that on your Mac, you’ll have to pay an extra $200.
  • Fingerprint reader
  • Backlit keyboard
  • Webcam– talk to all your friends on Skype.
  • Three USB ports
  • Just under 5 pounds–a weight you’ll be very grateful for when lugging it from class to class. Although the MacBook is a little lighter, it isn’t significant enough for you to feel the difference.
  • 2 Year Warranty– good if you are a litte klutzy : ); the MacBook’s warranty is a measly 1 year.

The best part? The HP Pavilion dv3510nr is available for $1,099 vs. the MacBook’s $1,299, which means more money in your wallet.

So, are you going to go for the expensive MacBook or maybe consider the cheaper HP Pavillion? You can get the HP Pavilion dv3510nr at Best Buy.
