The point is trying to do a "This must match this other thing precisely or it loses," is silly, and is generally only done by fanboys when they are trying to make the alternatives lose and trying to justify their product as the "right" choice.
This is absolutely not true, I think that a lot of people dont really care what OS they run, since most things run on most platform, and I can notice more and more that people don't really care about the OS.
I found this post very interesting because I have been asking myself this question. Having used a macbook pro as my main work computer for the past 5 - 6 years now, which windows laptop can replace it? Since pretty much everything is cross platform, I don't see a reason to keep spending the amount Apple wants for laptops.
I could read the specs or go on price, but what Apple offers is good performance and great build quality, and I really want to know which windows laptops offer the same.
I am happy about this post and am going to check out the suggested Dell and HP laptops.
