Hardware, Embedded Systems "Samsung knows a thing or two about designing notebooks. The Q35 Red that I recently reviewed created quite a stir every time I pulled it out of my bag at CES last month, and the ultra-slim Q30 won over many users who were looking for a machine that was ultra-thin and light. But now the Samsung design team has pushed the boat out and created the new Aura series of notebooks, which look set to go head to head with Apple's ultra-stylish MacBooks."

I don't know. Maybe it's just me. But, style is *NOT* going to be the determining factor of whether I choose an Apple vs. a PC. It's going to be the OS. Consequently, that means there is no comparing the Aura line and the iBook line.

Granted, if I were torn between two PC's, style might tip the scales. And, I also appreciate the iBook style. But, like I said, I'm not going to choose between Apple and PC because one looks better than the other. That would be just stupid.

I disagree. For me OS is almost irrelevant. I have OS X on my laptop, and windows and linux on two different workstations. And you know what, they are all basically the same. All run mathematica and python and firefox and LaTeX and bash and all the other apps I use equally well (well there are some apps that are mac and windows only). Also they all have annoying quirks that I manage to work around.

So when I'm now looking for a new laptop, I'm looking at price and features and design. If it runs OS X or not makes little difference, so comparing the Aura to an iBook works perfectly well for me.

Well, we can certainly agree to disagree.

I have a Dell laptop with Linux and XP on it. I'm no fan of Microsoft, but it works better than Linux does on this laptop. So, I use it. Also, I need it to run certain Windows only apps (namely, Intuit products).

I want to buy an Apple laptop so that I ditch XP and Linux Don't get me wrong, I love Linux everywhere but my laptop. In my case, the OS is clearly driving my wants/needs. And, I can't get OSX on the Aura, so it is no comparison.

I've never owned an Apple before. But, I have high expectations for OSX. I may be in for a rude awakening. But, I'm expecting it to be the worlds best GUI on *nix. How, can that be bad?

From the article at the first link:
"The R20 really does look the business with its glossy black finish and minimalist styling. In fact, if you placed it next to a black MacBook you’d be forgiven for thinking that they share the same DNA."

...except the black MacBook has a matte black finish, not a glossy one like the white MacBook...

...and a completely different keyboard (both keys & layout)

...and the fact that the MacBook's trackpad is about twice as wide

So basically, it's a black notebook? ;)

Tap with two fingers instead of one. Voila, right click. Drag with two fingers: 360 degree scroll on any document. Ctrl+drag with two fingers: instant screen zoom (great for YouTube, for reading a phone number across the room or simply showing something in detail to a group of people quickly)

Not to mention that the large (really large) trackpad and button make it extremely comfortable.

On the MacBook, clicking the button registers as a left click, and clicking the button with two fingers on the touchpad registers as a right click. It's an incredibly natural way to right-click on a laptop.

On a two-button laptop, a right-hander person's thumb rests naturally on the left mouse button in the normal track-pad position. Clicking the right button requires an awkward movement of the thumb towards the palm of the hand. The two-finger method, on the other hand, just requires you to put down a finger that's hovering right over the touchpad anyway.

As to the samsung aura it looks great but looks aren't everything. How well does the finish stand up to everyday use, speed of the burner etc are things i'm more interested in.

After pricing out a few laptops recently, I'd be hard pressed to not buy and Apple.

In order of importance:
+ Ability to run OS X and/or Windows. Choice is good!
+ DVI output. Why are laptop manufacturers still using VGA ports? Between DVI->HDMI cables for TVs and the fact that a significant number of people use their laptop with an external screen, this seems like a no-brainer. Throw in a DVI->VGA adapter if you're worried about compatabilty.
+ When you go feature-for-feature, Macs are priced well.

And Minuses:
- If you're going to use Windows, you'd have to buy a full retail copy.
- No dock from Apple. Memo to Apple: if you want businesses to buy Macs, build a docking station! The BookEndz dock works I suppose, but it just seems ghetto .

Macs aren't perfect of course, but it's tough to argue against them.

Excuse me, I know this sounds stupid, but what is the purpose of a dock? really? are you unable to just use the laptop as it is or do you feel some need to hook up half a dozen pieces of crap to it to turn it into some frankenstein laptop come desktop?

I'm confused, when I hear people say they 'need' something, I really question, why. Can you still use the laptop without it? yes; then you don't need it, end of story.

I used to think that way as a normal laptop user. Who needs a dock? what's the point.

Now that I have one at work, I think it's absolutely essential. We only have laptops at work; no workstations Which we plug into the dock when we are at our desk. The dock allows a full size keyboard, mouse, and proper monitor.

When you lug the laptop around to meetings, development lap...it is very handy to quick go from 'laptop mode' to 'work station mode' all the while have the same computer with you.

Dear Lord... It's 2007!!! Are you stuck in 1994 by any chance? Docking stations made sense then, but have you never heard of USB mice/keyboard and DVI output?

You can get USB hubs and (mini)DVI-to-VGA adapters for a *ridiculous* fraction of the price of a docking station. ANY docking station. And with a USB KVM, it's a small, single piece gadget that won't waste half of your desk whether you intend/need to use your notebook or not.

Yes because when I sit down at my desk, I want to spend the next 5-10 minutes hooking up all of my cables to my notebook. All I have to do is pop my notebook in the dock, which is loads more aesthetically pleasing and space conscious due to the fact that my screen can sit on top of my notebook.

Fark's sake. People buy docking stations, there is obviously a demand. So you don't want one yourself, yay. Why does that mean no one else would?

In the orthopedic office where I work the doctor uses a laptop that he can cart from room to room (and from office to office, he has one in two different cities). Portable is good.

He also uses the computer to look at xrays sent over the network from the hospitals radiology department. For that, the 22" LCD that sits on his desk works a lot better than the laptop's built in screen. Larger, better specs (response time, contrast), etc. He also happens to prefer full size keyboards (with separate numeric keypad OMG!) and prefers using a mouse to a trackpad (way understandable). The laptop (a laptop/tablet actually) has no built in optical drive (not needed for scribbling down notes in an exam room, just extra weight) so there's an external one on the desk.

It is easy for him to hook these all up to a docking station. When he returns to his desk, he puts the laptop in it, done. No messing around with four different wires, some of which would plug into the back of the laptop. It is easier, period. This is multiplied by the fact that he's in and out of his office frequently to see patients in exam rooms. Plugging/unplugging 4 wires vs setting down/picking up the laptop? Easy choice.

Sure, he could save a wire or two using a bluetooth keyboard or whatever, but I (and he) have never liked wireless input devices. They never work all the time. Swapping batteries or worrying about placing the mouse in a charger = extra work. Wired just works.

It's amazing to me how you refuse to acknowledge that an external monitor, keyboard and mouse might be preferable to some people as long as they are seated at a desk, and that for these people a docking station is a lot faster than plugging and unplugging a load of wires. I've just detailed a real world situation where a socking station saves a lot of aggravation, but I shouldn't have to. You should have the imagination to be able to come up with such a situation yourself instad of assuming everyone else's usage pattern must be exactly like yours. So you think docking stations are unnecessary, great. Lots of people disagree.

But you didn't answer the question; WHY?! I'm using my laptop all the time, as a desktop, on the road, and I don't use an external keyboard or mouse or screen; I use the laptop as is, without extras.

What is so hard with that? unpack the laptop, turn it on, hook it up to the power, possibly attach a network cable to it, and voila, thats it; a few hundred bucks saved by not having a docking station.

Sure, back in 1994 laptops were bloody aweful; the stupid stick based pointer, the keyboards were horrific, the speed was crap, and the screen was inhumane torture on the eyes - flash forward 13 years, and the laptop keyboards are lot more confortable, infact I prefer it to a regular keyboard, the screen is simply divine and the touchpad is weird to use at first, but once you've become accustomed to it, its all good.

For me its a no brainer. I need a laptop so that I can be on the move at a moments notice, but I also spend a good deal of time in the same place and obviously on the computer.

I hate laptop keyboards, I use a MS natural kb. I *can* use the keyboard on the laptop, but its only really optimal for me during short periods of time.

I also use dual LCD screens, which I could not do on my laptop without the docking station as my docking station provides DVI and VGA outputs.

So the docking station for me works great. I can have my dual LCDs plugged in, use my ms natural KB and my docking station also provides 3 more USB ports than my laptop alone. All of this in a nice small package that I can disconnect with the push of one button.

Maybe I've been spoiled by having docks with my previous machines, but I can't really imagine a business setting without docks. If Apple was serious about market share, they'd have a dock. I know I couldn't recommend a model that didn't have a dock to my company.

One of the best selling points of the MacBook Pro that I've seen is the weight.

I like my current 15.4" laptop's resolution (1920x1200) and would like to keep it when I upgrade to a new laptop eventually- and I've come to the (obvious?) conclusion that 1920x1200 needs a bigger screen size. At the same time, though, my computing needs have become substantially more mobile recently and the weight of my current laptop is starting to get to me.

The Apple MacBook Pro 17" is actually lighter than this Dell Inspiron 8500.* I haven't found any other manufacturer that sells sub-7-pound 17" laptops.
Basically, when I eventually replace this computer I could have my cake and eat it too, if only I could live with the bulk and the one-button-mouse while travelling.

Well, that and I'd have to decide which OS I was going to run, since Linux&MacOS X&WinXP would take up too much disk space for no benefit...

*I'm aware the MacBook currently maxes out at 1680x1050- but that's now, and... well, I might be persuaded to give up 1920x1200 for a larger screen and lighter laptop.

Your post is confusing the hell out of me. What do you want out of a notebook? They are for portability. I never understood those people that lug around 8-10 pound laptops so they can have a large screen that kills the battery in half the time. Just get a desktop, because that's the only thing you can really use something like that for anyway. If you have trouble reading a small screen then maybe the accessibility options of your OS suck.

I just ordered a new laptop with integrated graphics, a 14 inch screen, and a 9 cell battery, altogether weighing in under 5 pounds. It's perfect for what I want out of it...portability. I looked at larger screen options and more powerful graphics but the downsides are too great. I would be glued to an AC outlet or have a hernia within a couple of weeks. That would pretty much eliminate the benefits of having a laptop.

Apple's machines are built by Taiwanese ODMs. So are Dell's machines. But heck, ThinkPads are made in mainland China, so clearly any of them are capable of producing quality equipment as long as you're willing to foot the bill for it. And having owned both Dell and Apple laptops, it's quite clear to me that Apple seems to be willing to foot the bill, and Dell isn't.

Of course, you still can't beat a ThinkPad. You could use those things as melee weapons in a pinch.
