Legal Okay, I didn't see this one coming. German press agency dpa is reporting that Apple has been granted a preliminary injunction barring Samsung's Galaxy Tab 10.1 from being distributed in the entire European Union except for The Netherlands, over a design patent. Competition at its finest, people, and this is clearly in the interest of consumers. I'm ashamed to be European. Updates in the article now. This iterative update process isn't really working when you've got a gazillion of them.

I am the happy owner of a MacBook Pro 17" 2011, but I didn't pay 2500 Euro for it, I managed to get it for just over 1600 Euro. Similarly I managed to buy an AppleCare 140 Euro cheaper than its original price.
Excessive pricing and the kind of things I read in this article make my relation with Apple a love-hatred one.
I love Macs, but I am not your typical Apple fan who accepts everything without a word of criticism.

Don't you think that most people would consider 1600 Euro's way to too much to pay for a laptop anyway?

No, because compared to my horrible, plasticky HP DV7 (1300 Euro last year) it is *a lot* better.

Think you're asking the wrong guy. You were talking about most people, but you found the one who can clearly afford to drop 3 grand on a couple of laptops.
