An OS is worth $750 extra? 

 

If you want extra durability, look into a ThinkPad with a magnesium body and internal rollcage. An Apple notebook with its glass screen and trackpad will just shatter into bits if dropped. There is *nothing* about any of Apple's notebooks that makes them truly worth their asking price. Poor cooling, constant overheating, fragile screens, lack of useful ports like HDMI and USB 3, need multiple $30 adapters to connect all your peripherals, etc.

Look, money is not a problem. Productivity and workspace is an issue on Windows. I prefer Mac OS X when it comes to design and production. + iOS app developer = making money.

 

Windows is not capable or fast enough to do that (user inferfaces and experiences). I've been working between Windows and Mac for more than 15 years.

 

+ I'm not sure what fragile screen. I have a custom anti-glare screen without glass on it.

 

 

 

This is why everytime I see people rant on other products AKA lack of knowledge + they never had experienced with them long enough before making such statement that target people who own Apple product say the are fan or something. 

 

 

I can talk all day long about between OS, I see both side has flaws and goods. You can talk about applications, programmer, art works, networking, repair, etc etc all day. I have every single reason and solutions. Simply mastered at both.

Next week: Apple patents every possible 2D & 3D geometric shape.

I can just see future lawsuits in which defendants produce design schematics showing a one degree angle difference in chassis tapers, trying to "prove" they have an original design.

Sad...

While it's my opinion that this fails the "Obvious" test for a patent. Apple's clout will no doubt prevail. However prior art may give this trouble.

Additionally if the design was in the public for some time (cant remember the number of days) before the patent was filed, it cannot be patented. But again this is up to human (USPTO) interpretation, and most importantly WHEN Apple actually filed the design patent applicaiton. (if challenged...and it no doubt will be by someone they WILL sue.)

Oh boy, Apple trying to make a pre-emptive strike at suing all ultrabook manufacturers rolleyes.gif

Apple is a dog that needs to be put down. Getting sick of their patent trolling antics.

Anyone dare to guess what they are patenting next?

- Thickness of the screen?
- Color?
- Keyboard?
- Screen resolution?

Take your pick guys, it's coming in the future!

Ummmm what? I know three people that have broken Macs from short falls (4feet >) I have dropped my Dell Latitude 3 times over the years and its still going strong.

Don't even get me started on iPhones and how ridiculously easy their screens crack.

I think they're just trying everything. It's so easy to patent something they've figured they'll just throw a load of ideas at the patent office and see which ones stick.
