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.

Please give credit to the technology and infrastructure engineers who made it all possible.


people often forget that the SoC-era didn't start for the pc that long ago

back in the 90' when toshiba build the librettos there wasn't even a level 2 cache integrated into the cpu, it was soldered on/pluged into the mainboard

I've made a picture of a pentium mobile module with 166MHz:

it's 100x65mm and only holds cpu, cache, and one of 2 chipset-chips
