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.

I know I am half-blind and probably fashion-ignorant or whatever, but it always amazes me that people expect from something that is like 1 nanometer thickness (thinness is probably a better word) to somehow magically have a radically different look. Probably having it five corners would work...

It's like complaining that every standard A4 size paper manufacturer "copies" other manufacturers.
