waa..? what the hell "nuclear energy" has to do with it?!

Today's Ford Focus and 80 years old Fort T also "both had cylinders, they both required compression, and they both ran on gas", so you think they are in the same league, just Focus is "nicer"? Are you nuts?

Porsche is more expensive than Ford not because it's just "nicer"... if you dont believe me, talk to anyone a)whom you believe and b)knows something about cars.

Granted, a lot of Porsche's price is due to brandname, still the under-hood AND performance differences are real.

ones who buy the HP *specifically* thinking they are getting the same quality as an Apple are either very uninformed

ok, tell me what exactly inside the apple is of better quality than the hp's (remember, os doesnt count here - we are talking hardware)
