'Getting what you wanted' means not paying for more than you want.
AppleInsider is referring to 1440x900 as 'low resolution', as if anybody needs 1920x1200. It isn't HP enticing users to have a low quality screen by dangling low prices, its not giving users more than they need in order to justify a premium.
That's what Apple does.
The added weight and lower battery life of the machine is due to the fact that HP expects computers that large to be used as desktop replacements, not on-the-go devices. For that HP has a few netbooks. The point is in the PC market, you can get what you want,
not some deviced marked as 'quality' so they can charge premiums.
