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.

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.

For 1600 euro, you can buy 2 good laptops or 3 reasonable if you shop around a bit.

Unless you really like OSX or are into video editing, there is no real need to spend so much?

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.

Exactly so we have people giving this amount of money for OS X, while so many people around the world cannot even afford a 500€ laptop.

This is one of the reasons I don't buy Apple. Luckly I have a life status that allows me to buys them cash up front, but then I think if Mac OS X is really worth the price and end up buying a PC with dual boot.

As for HP laptops they are usually crap anyway.

Please note that this is a general remark, nothing personal against 'Anonymous Penguin'.
