@Lambda.

You know as well an anyone that Apple's notebooks are thinner than any other. Hence the "more features per cubic inch". What's there to prove?

Considering "design". In my native language (dutch) the word means slightly more than just good looks, it also means better function beacuse of choices made by Apple other than what hardware has been picked from Intel's and Nvidea's the shelves.

Cost:
You are forgetting TCO. As far as I know that's one of the other 'objective' ways.

And you still fail to consider objective measurements. Hint - factor in OSX and you might have a chance.

What's not objective about the features per cubic inch part?
What's not objective about the TCO part?

How can I factor in the OS X experience, as you suggest, and at the same time remain objective?

(these are rhetorical questions, you don't need to answer them) ;)
By the way, I really don't like your condecending tone, again. I'm not stupid.

Anyhow, as far as I can see, you are the one who fails to prove that Apple charges a hardware tax. You just take it as a fact. As far as I know, you are supposed to prove your stance, I only need to raise considerable doubt ;)
