Apple laptops are a whole different kettle of fish by comparison. And totally worth it for me as I can get 15% Higher Education discount. They also retain a lot of their resell value, long after an equivalent PC laptop would drop significantly in value.

Not enough apparently

Reasonable prices? What are you people smoking? Similarly specced machines with a little bit less omph can be had for half the price.

These are elite and crazy expensive machines for people who only buy the absolute best. There should be no talk of affordability. Apple is making a killing here.

You aren't kidding.

You can't compare these to Dell Ultrasharp's that actually cost 1,000 bucks. Totally different league

I agree, these aren't dell ultrasharp monitors at all. They are the same kind of product that is used on the consumer level not the commercial/industrial level. They are no where near as expensive to make.

Also confused how a 128 or even a 256gb ssd is enough. I have a 60gb ssd and a 750gb in my g73. The solid state is in the red zone and I have about 200gb free on my hard drive. Granted its somewhat of a gaming pc. It can physically run crysis. Lol

You do realise that the laptops you linked to are a gaming series?

And they don't really meet any of the criteria he stated. It's not aluminium, it's heavier and thicker, it has a smaller battery and a more power hungry GPU. The best display option is only 1080p. The system also works out at $1430 with 256GB SSD and 1080p display option selected, so it isn't half price either.

I'm all for a good comparison, but a gaming laptop isn't a great choice for one.

I pet peeve I find with most high end 15'' laptops is the number pad. I hate (and by that, I mean loathe with a passion) trackpads that are either small, or are not in the dead center of the laptop with the keyboard. IMHO, numberpads kill any ergonomics when typing or using the mouse for a feature I don't want. If a laptop's trackpad and keyboard cannot stand on their own as legitimate mouse, external keyboard replacements, then the laptop itself is useless to me. There are few laptops on the market that keep to Apple's macbook keyboard and trackpad design. This pretty much rules out all dells, sagers, lenovos, etc.

and even if they have a trackpad like that, windows doesn't have the software support to make these trackpads work well

You didn't meet any of the criteria. Not to mention it "gaming" laptops like Sager and Alienware are a joke.

Most OCN users only know of specs and specs. Crappy TN screen? No problem. Bad customer support? No problem. Specs! YES! /sarcasm


My rMBP is an absolute pleasure to work on. I would say it's easily better than my previous Sony Vaio Z and my wife's Samsung Series 9 X3B.

The argument was "OK, you haters think this is overpriced. Prove it. Show me another portable that has comparable specs for a significantly lower price." Throwing out a key spec to try to work your argument makes the entire argument flawed before it even starts.

2) The argument was that the MacBook Pro Retina is NOT overly priced for its specs, not whether or not there are any cheaper offerings by Apple or whether or not there is a discrete GPU in the 13", therefore your attempt to try and flip the argument is simply pointless arguing for argument's sake. Everyone knows there are no MBPr's in that price range, but how does that relate at all to the product being over priced? It has nothing to do with it at all.

Again, to all you pointless haters out there; show me an aluminum portable with the same size and weight, screen, specs, and battery life at a significantly lower price. Show me this is overpriced. Put your money where your mouth is or just shut up and stay quiet.


uhhh no... I determine how much I should pay for a product by how much it cost to make that product, I don't buy by comparing other product prices with eachother as they could all be overpriced.
