Apple The 17" MacBook Pro has just been released. The 17" model has Firewire 800 and 8x dual layer Superdrive, both of which the 15.4" version lacks. The new MacBook Pro was presented during the NAB2006. The machine will cost $2799,- in the US, or round and about EUR 2879,- (differs per country) in the EU, or GBP 1999,- if you live in the UK.

Again somebody unable to get the difference between price and value.
E. g. product comparison between the MacBookPro 15" and other 15" CoreDuo laptops by c't showed that the display of the Mac was better e. g. almost all laptop except the Mac laked non-reflecting coating making the displays unusable in bright sunlight. In fact, the Apple laptop was one of the best in almost all categories (battery time, weight, thickness, features, software)

Don't get me wrong: The HP dv8000t 17" maight be a good laptop - I don't know - but stupid spec listings with the usual price comparision at the end are way to simplistic for the real world. Furthermore the iron rule of price comparisons states, that there is alway a cheaper machine.

In that sense:
The computing world isn't waiting around for HP to sell them overpriced x86 boxes.

HP is not in the market for the cheapest machines, you say? Well - neither is Apple ..
