Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

I saw that article when it first came out and I was surprised Apple never went after them, especially since they went so far as to put an Apple trademark on it as well.

But you know very well that what I'm referring to is a different thing altogether. What you linked to was some third-rate overt clone of an already released product. What Samsung's tablet hybrid looks like -- at least to me -- is perhaps where Apple had planned to take the MacBook Air for its next big revision. In fact, owning a "tablet hybrid" for the past week has made me wonder why Apple didn't do this long ago, perhaps with the second iteration of the iPad.

Either way, I applaud Samsung's brass balls in this instance; taking a questionable verdict and throwing it out the window, flipping Apple off with a device that takes Apple's own design cues and puts them to work in a way that makes every iDevice out there seem a decade old.
