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.

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?

It depends what matters most to you: quality or price. If you don't mind crap (as I said, I have also a 1300 Euro HP DV7 which is total crap), you can buy a laptop for 800 or 1000 Euro.
But it won't be anywhere near a MacBook Pro: quality, specs, everything.
I do love OS X, but I'd rather run Windows on a Mac. Or any other OS, for that matter.
MacBooks are constantly on top of best laptops rankings.
And they keep their value in time. From a 1050 Euro Samsung laptop I bought 3 years ago, I could have got 200 Euro. I donated it, instead.

Replying to myself ;)
I forgot love for details. On my MacBook Pro it is simply astonishing.
