Apple I love OSNews, but it does seem like some of its editors enjoy just a little too much taking a good natured jab at Apple upon occasion (well, more like every chance that particular editor can get). I thought it time for a little good news and analysis about Apple that critics often overlook.

Apple tax does still exist, the 13" macbook pro seems reasonable but you can get a slighty slower hp with an aluminium body and bigger disk for half the price.

It's not fully aluminium though, it has a plastic strip were the wifi and bluetooth antennas live. (function over form perhaps)

The 15" line is seriously expensive considering the competition. 1750 euro for an i5? that's mental.


How is it expensive given that almost every 15 inch laptop on the market is over two inches thick, have horrible battery life and are extremely heavy? what is being marketed as '15 inch laptops' aren't laptops, they're desktop replacements if one were to be generous when describing them. The Apple MacBook's are laptops first and foremost, designed for portability from the outset rather than the sad attempt by vendors to retrofit desktop hardware into a confine space resulting in having to carry around a tank.
