Apple Apple makes the best consumer laptops. For me, there's absolutely no denying that this is the case. Apple has had this lead over the competition since the iBook G3 Dual USB 12.1" and 14", and has never lost it. Right now, the rumour mill is abuzz about Apple supposedly prepping to launch a MacBook Pro with a retina display - 2880x1800.

Typing this from my old vaio,, 1920x1080 on a 13".. that's pretty good if you ask me, and that was before Apple. Sure Apple may make a better model in 6 month, but Sony did well so far, and they might also make a better one in 6 month.

Most importantly, mine's high DPI and I can type on it right now. And since month and month!

Moreover, the latest incarnation of this Vaio is lighter than Macbook AIR and arguably faster than a top of the line MacBook Pro (same i7, 2 cores vs 4 cores, but way, way faster SSDs Talking 500+byte/s writes and nearly 1gb/s reads here). Still retaining the high DPI!

It's also quieter, oh, and cooler. And has an external GPU. And a fingerprint reader. And a 14H battery sheet addon. And so on.

Oh and battery life is excellent too.
