Hardware, Embedded Systems "Samsung knows a thing or two about designing notebooks. The Q35 Red that I recently reviewed created quite a stir every time I pulled it out of my bag at CES last month, and the ultra-slim Q30 won over many users who were looking for a machine that was ultra-thin and light. But now the Samsung design team has pushed the boat out and created the new Aura series of notebooks, which look set to go head to head with Apple's ultra-stylish MacBooks."

Hmm, My Laptop wasn't made by some random subcontracted Chinese company... In fact, Mine wasn't made in China at all (Japan, It's a Sharp, and was manufactured by Sharp.)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Dell laptops are still made in Texas?

And I suspect that these Samsung laptops were made in Korea.

Don't get me wrong... I'm a HUGE supporter of the global economy, I love China, But I do find it funny how all these Macaddicts (I don't like to use the word fanboy) are all oohing and ahhing about how well _Apple_ builds their laptops.

Apple's machines are built by Taiwanese ODMs. So are Dell's machines. But heck, ThinkPads are made in mainland China, so clearly any of them are capable of producing quality equipment as long as you're willing to foot the bill for it. And having owned both Dell and Apple laptops, it's quite clear to me that Apple seems to be willing to foot the bill, and Dell isn't.

Of course, you still can't beat a ThinkPad. You could use those things as melee weapons in a pinch.
