PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Last week, HP killed its webOS devices unit. Over the weekend, the company slashed the prices on the TouchPad. The result? The TouchPad sold out completely in a matter of hours. This confirms what I've been hearing from friends and family: "I'd love a tablet, but I'm not paying laptop money for one."

So let me see if I understand your post.

- Those respected journalists who are pro-apple are actually pro-apple fanboys who know nothing about anything while you are a manufacturing idiot savant

- Apple is actually an environmentally wasteful manufacturer of crap; never mind what those pinko-commie Greenpeace people say and the unparalleled customer satisfaction rating

- Plastic is fantastic! Plastic is better, stronger and better looking and better for the environment too! Don't settle for imitations, get genuine plastic!!! Never mind that it takes 25k years to decay in a landfill and looks like shit.

- Apple is not really selling that many laptops; never mind that fact that Apple holds the #1, #3, and #5 slots in the top 5 best selling laptops on Amazon

- PC makers have no interest in those awesome margins Apple makes; they want to stick to the cheaper, better plastic stuff and make 2% margins because really, that's where the money is; that HP CEO must be a dumb ass for wanting to divest the biggest PC business in the world

Is that about right?
