Anybody ever hear of this notebook computer? It's supposed to be a collaboratin of Best Buy and HP. According to Best Buy, they're flying off the shelves.

Have I already asked this question?

I haven't heard of it, but if it's selling well, how much is it? It's about time notebooks became just a little more accessible in price.
