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.

Generally, a ~unibody metal frame is a quite sensible approach, if the goal is to have something sturdy and thin (which goes back again to "the way technologies developed" and how making such frames became feasible for consumer toys)

Blacks, greys - they are also safer choices thanks to more universal appeal; and they last better.

But maybe some people think the grayish-silvery look of mosr metal surfaces is due to painting them over like that...


In other news: mostly only aviation buffs can quickly differentiate between a typical Airbus and Boeing - shock, horror!
