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.

The fact of the matter is, though, that other PC makers still have a little while to go to fully match Apple's laptop quality. The ZenBook is just as good as the Air, save for a slightly worse keyboard and touchpad.

The next generation will likely have caught up - a scary prospect for the Apple of 2008, but considering 70% of their revenue comes from iOS now, I don't think they care all too much.
