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.

Actually both just copied the original - "mother nature".

A) Making an aluminium alloy for a different colour is energy consuming and very expensive.
B) Keyboard colour is dictated by human eye workings.(As well as the bezel) Colour on black* works, anything else just distracts.
C) Use of aluminium for production is no surprise, since the price of aluminium dropped in 2008/2009, to the point that I was contemplating of making a mould of my motherboard and ordering one giant aluminium heatsink to fit the internals of my PC perfectly.


*- Black isn't physically a colour.
