1) cars -

I am not getting you. let me recollect the line of arguments:

MediaSex notes that Apple charges more for the same hardware as HP.

you sarcastically reply that it's the same as Porsches being priced higher than Fords.

me humbly retort that it is bad analogy because while Apple and HP are the same hardware, Porsche and Ford are REALLY different under the hood => thus difference in price.

and then you 1st claim that there is no difference between Porsche and Ford, and 2nd you flip 180 to claim that "Mercedes Benz and (older)Porsches" "are just plain engineered better than *most* of their american counterparts".
.... sooo ... what do you really-really think: is Porsche technically different-better than Ford, or not ?!

2) Apple and HP

I asked you to elaborate about what inside apple is of better quality than the same thing inside hp.

And you replied with marketing-blah-blah-blah-bs, like, "...dont simply compare list of specs ... quality of experience ... understand the difference".

"quality of experience" is inside your head (ie "opinion"), not inside apple laptop.

So I repeat my question: what EXACTLY inside apple laptop is of better quality than inside hp laptop?

btw, apple's "quality of experience" exists 50% thanks to OSX/AppleSoftware being better than MS/FOSS crap, and 50% due to a sole company having full control over the system.

but we are talking hardware here...
