Last night I purchased the i7 HP Spectre from John Lewis:
I was under the belief, due to pricing, that this was the same as PC Worlds i7:
But I have now noticed different product codes, and of course I want the newest/best for the such similar prices:
13-4172na (PC World)
13-4129na (John Lewis)
Can anyone work out the release dates or any other differentiation? Have been unable to work it out from the HP website etc. Need help asap as I may be cancelling my order... any help appreciated!

HP's product coding is just not very transparent but it is very possible laptops with the same specs have multiple product numbers depending on distribution channel. I am sure John Lewis and PC World is each big enough to receive dedicated model numbers from HP. I have scoured the spec lists for you on both these laptops and as far as I can ascertain, they are identical: same processor, memory, solid state drive, wireless card, screen resolution. Functionally I can see no difference.

The best way to purchase the HP Spectre and get what you want is to order online directly from HP.
Your Spectre can be configured to order.

Yes, it seems they are. THe only difference I found was:
HP Imagepad with multi-touch gesture support
HP Control Zone Trackpad
Does this make any real difference?
The other product codes are more similar:
X5X71EA#ABU (John Lewis)
X5X72EA#ABU (PC World)
