>I am not getting you.

I'm not sure why. Lets try this one last time:
Porsche = automobile
Ford = automobile
Therefore, I can justify a comparison by saying Porsche quality > Ford quality. It certainly wouldn't make any sense if I tried to say Porsche quality > Bread Maker quality because they aren't the same things. Are you catching on?

>you sarcastically humbly retort
Haha, thats great. Seriously, out of all the things you've posted, this is by far my favorite. You villify me for making fun of a troll while identifying yourself as the "humble poster". Thats fantastic, like something out of Monty Python. How humble you are sir.

>1st claim that there is no difference between Porsche and Ford
No no no! I said they were in the same categoy (automobiles) which makes it a fair to compare the quality of the two. In my world, its fair to make comparions between two like objects. I can say that Filet Minion > Brisket, Mansions > Trailors, and CD's > 8-tracks all because these things fall under like [respective] categories: beef/houses/music mediums.

You originally said they weren't a fair comparison based soley on engine internals. I said they were a fair comparison based on the fact they are both automobiles. I never "fliped 180". Please re-read my statements.

>what do you really-really think: is Porsche technically different-better than Ford, or not ?!
Yes, I beleive Porsche to better than Ford. I'm glad I could clear that up for you.

>I asked you to elaborate about what inside apple is of better quality than the same thing inside hp. And you replied with marketing-blah-blah-blah-bs

Ahhh yes. Something told me in the beginning that you were one of those people. Any attempt to make reference to Macintoshes being synonomous with quality is nothing more than marketing BS. So what do you want me to say then? Apple uses better quality parts (cases, screens, screws, connectors)? Apple has higher engineering standards (break away power cord, illuminated keyboard, thinner, lighter, quieter)? Tell me ssme, what would I say that isn't marketing BS to you?

>So I repeat my question: what EXACTLY inside apple laptop is of better quality than inside hp laptop? but we are talking hardware here...

Funny because I was talking about the whole thing, internals, case, OS, the whole "quality of experience". I could seriously care less that Apple and HP share the same motherboard/cpu which makes up about 25% of the computer (well, 50% to you since you apparently don't believe in operating systems). Without the rest of the stuff, all you have is futuristic looking paperweight. If you want to think that just because the cpu/motherboard are the same, that makes Apple = HP, then keep telling yourself that. When everyone else makes this startling conclusion, starts purchasing HP's buy the truckload, and Apple goes out of buisness in 3 months, feel free to reply back to me with an "I told you so".
