Hardware, Embedded Systems Speaking of HP, the company replied to a question if they copied Apple for their latest ultrabook, the Envy Spectre XT. "There are similarities in a way, not due to Apple but due to the way technologies developed. Apple may like to think that they own silver, but they don't. In no way did HP try to mimic Apple. In life there are a lot of similarities." It's an ultrabook, a category of laptops defined by Intel. Coincidentally, Intel also developed the internals of the MacBook Air. These products are looking relatively similar because their internals have been designed by the same damn company. Get over it.

Yes, you're right.
The materials used, the colour of the frame and the keyboard and the overall look of all these "ultrabooks" are so similar to the Macbook Air because their internals are designed by Intel.
Do you believe this stuff yourself or are you just trolling?

Go back 5 years, when Mac laptops were very different to anything else out there yet internally they were similar to any other vendor.
Then came along the Macbook Air, its design mind you both externally and internally was an initiative by Apple.
A few years later they all look the same. It's natural of course given the success of the Air but you claiming that this is merely a result of the internals being design by Intel, is silly to say the least.
