And if let someone have an apple laptop or Windows laptop for free.. 10/10 times that person will pick that apple laptop. it's a better laptop at the end of the day. People know it's expensive but ask any Mac users... it's worth every penny. If my mac air was 2 grand.. i'd still buy it.
The reality distortion field is strong with this one.
The reliable stuff is not just Apple, I know Samsungs recent laptops are great (Mine is as strong as a brick)
And 10/10 people would pick the Macbook? Really? Most people I know say "I prefer Windows" and note that the build quality isn't really that much better than the average Dell/HP, it's piss poor designers using a strong material to make up for their designs, not good designers using a good design to make up for a weak material...Or even better, a good designer using a good design with strong material.
That said, the Macbook Pro and Macbook Air are easily the best Apple products.

512MB of memory (LOL)

Core 2 Duo (MMMMONSTER KILL)
All for the low, low price of ~$1,199
Even if you're not trolling, OS X doesn't guzzle RAM like Windows, although I would agree that 512MB is tiny.
