HP Pavillion dm4
Pros: Awesome laptop. Great features at a great price. This is my daily workhorse. Bought it new, not refurbished. Extremely happy with the performance; I usually have several applications open at the same time, such as Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and browser. I also run some scientific models once in a while, with no issues. I did upgrade RAM to 16GB (maximum possible with Win7 Home). Bloatware can be removed for the most part. I used CCleaner to tweak the registry and startup files. Newegg was good as usual.
Other Thoughts: I have another HP laptop at home for personal use, and have been enjoying it a lot as well (AMD A8 processor with 6GB RAM). Like them better than some of the offerings from Dell.

Fantastic little laptop
Pros: I know this is a refurb so I can't guarantee everyone else's buying experience will be the same as mine, but pretty much every piece of this laptop is a "pro" to me. This is exactly what I was looking for. 1600x900 resolution looks great on the 14" screen, I'm sorry I refuse to buy a laptop with this new crummy 1366x786 resolution that computer companies have standardized for no other reason than ripping off their customers.
Cons: Okay, if you really really want me to nitpick I could say the bloatware it comes with, but even that is really easy to remove with any uninstallation software, and some of it is actually quite useful if you give it a chance, like HP's update software that will update bios, drivers and other software for you.
Other Thoughts: Honestly, I really can't say enough about this laptop. Is it the greatest laptop ever? I highly doubt it. Is it exactly what I was looking for? Definitely. It's light, small yet powerful, higher resolution than 1366x786, great battery life, and still has Windows 7. It's just great :).
