If this topic was about someone deciding between two different desktop builds with very similar specs and one of them cost $600, or if it was two GPUs with very similar performance but one had slightly better heat output for $300 more, it wouldn't be "open-minded" to say "Oh yeah, that's fine. It's a wise decision." Sorry, but being a bit thinner is not worth $600 more.
If all Mac users were millionaires to whom that price increase didn't matter much, I'd agree with you.
it has the best battery life and lowest weight in it's class. it should be compared to samsung series 9 15", rather than something like the 6165 that weights a pound and a half more and has way less battery life.
if you think a true gaming laptop that weighs 7+ pounds is portable.... if you ask me, the mbpr is a more practical choice than a laptop that doesnt function as a laptop (isnt really portable) that also costs 2k
There's two Apple bandwagons; one for lovers and one for haters. I can happily say I'm on neither (I hate the iPhone and iMac, dislike the iPad but like the Macbook Pro)
x2 If you think a relative powerhouse in ultrabook form factor isnt revolutionary I dont know what to say (and throw in a super resolution screen for kicks.) In contrast I dont really find any of the other apple products to currently be truly revolutionary compared to everything else out there. I mean the only manufacturer with anything close is Samsung with their 15" ultrabook, but it doesnt stack up well at all in terms of specs (except price maybe heh)Edited by perfectblade - 7/8/12 at 6:09pm
