I'd like to see you try.

TF101, TF201. Liar MBA 13" is $1300 Series 9 13 inch is $1400, higher res screen and matte screen, worth the extra $100. iPhone 4S is base price 650, Galaxy Nexus is 630. iPhone 4 is 550(where did you get 500?) and the Nexus S is $350.

Lets see the tablets and phones are better because Apples biggest new feature in them is backgrounds, while Android keeps on coming out with new features every new version. For Siri its uh, creative keywords at best, it has no integration with apps like Google's voice commands do.

The laptop has USB 3.0. And all that software I have already bought kinda works on it. Bring up bootcamp if you want, but then add the price of Windows license to Macbook Air.

I got 3 Apple products in the junk drawer, 3 dead iPod 3rd gen because they couldn't last longer than 2 years.

Didn't see that until now, but post above just about nailed it.

Nexus S
S2 (outsold iPhone
Galaxy Nexus
Transformer Prime
Hell even that Huawei crap topped it in many markets.

Open source. That's about all that is needed in this space.

Apple doesn't make a desktop, they have a workstation, and a exotic laptop with a nice screen.

Uhm... I was being serious. You can go no all day about spec's but for me it's not as important in a laptop than it is in a desktop. Laptops are for portability, if you're rendering your maya files on your laptop you're handicapped.

I was being serious as well. There's plenty of thin laptops from ASUS, Lenovo, Samsung, Toshiba etc etc that are quality construction and are highly portable. Portability is a subjective term, I have no problem carrying around my hulking 18" 12lb laptop around. If it fits in a bag, its portable, that's my definition of a portable computer.
Also, laptops are for whatever you buy it for. Certainly didn't buy my MBP because its what some people feel is portable.

If you're so show there's ZERO comparable laptops from other manufactures, that's your opinion, but surely there are several quality builds available.

Quite incorrect actually. The iMac's use the S spec'd desktop Core processors.

That's the common argument used by people who value money over ethics. And I believe 90% of the Apple hate stems from it, not price.

From the narcissism of it's users to Apple's business practices, I've never wanted one and even when I fancy the thought I almost sicksmiley.png
