Editorial Bob Cringeley makes a bold statement in a blog post responding to Apple's iCloud announcement: "Jobs is going to sacrifice the Macintosh in order to kill Windows." He says, "The incumbent platform today is Windows because it is in Windows machines that nearly all of our data and our ability to use that data have been trapped. But the Apple announcement changes all that. Suddenly the competition isn't about platforms at all, but about data, with that data being crunched on a variety of platforms through the use of cheap downloaded apps."

No, but it is a lot better. You pay a premium for better goods in all areas of technology and beyond. If you have two TVs side-by-side, and one cost 3 times more than the other, will you be able to see a three times better picture? Even for AA batteries - you pay double the price for some brands that last longer, but not twice as long. Of course there's the Apple tax, but that aside, there's a lot more love gone into the MacBook than that Lenovo...
