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.

It looks like a crappier macbook air.

Sony used to produce very elegant Viao's that looked nothing like Apple Powerbooks. It's possible to produce something beautiful without copying Apple products. You can't seriously be suggesting that because of the chipset, the *outside* looks the same?

Copying or "borrowing" is a fact of life but frankly that laptop just looks like a lazy ripoff.
