I've worked on the Apple wanna be style Pro Books and they are pretty stylish.
Perform well also.
The Brushed steel exterior in areas is a nice touch too.
The only issue I had with them was the Apple Macboo Pro style touchpad they were using where the buttons and the touch pad were all under one bit of plastic.

In these pics it appears HP have learned their lesson and gone back to the original separate touch pad and buttons.
