New HP notebook shaves off the inches and the price

I was invited to the launch of the new HP Pavilion dv2 Series Entertainment Notebook PC at Supperclub. Make that two notebooks actually, one in black and one in white. Which do you prefer?

Lots of cool HP software. You can now write Chinese characters and some other Asian scripts and manage your media files, wherever they’re stored. I feel that because Apple included its iLife software with its operating system, it raised the bar and Microsoft took a while to fill the gap.
HP's answer to iPhoto?
You can also manage your photos. Looks like HP’s answer to Apple’s iPhoto.

As a business student who’s learnt some things about customer segmentation, I’d like to see if more girls buy the white model and more guys buy the black model. Of course, the hardcore guy gamers will want a more powerful notebook.
I actually think this will be popular among female students, because it is slim, not too heavy, and parents won’t complain about the extremely affordable price. Especially in difficult economic times like this.
Can you guess how much this costs? (don’t peek… scroll down if you want the answer)

Only S$1,299!
The white model will be launched 1 month after the black model and cost S$100 more. My question is: Would you pay $100 just for the white colour? In fact, would you pay extra for the colour you want?
