Actually it is a laptop. It has a mobile processor, a battery and at the bottom it says "price for this laptop"
Very true, although I still agree with what JonCha is trying to say.
You are still not comparing like-for-like when it comes to Apple products.
A few things to consider:
- The £755 laptop does not come with proper Office software, Mac does
- The Macbook will comfortably get 7 hours of battery with normal, Wifi enabled, use. The other will not.
- The Macbook is sturdier, and has things like a ridiculously good, large trackpad.
- Upgrading Windows will cost a bunch. OS X upgrades come exceptionally cheap.
- No AV, etc. required with OS X.
I am not saying Macs are everything. I personally have ordered a Dell laptop which will be arriving this friday.
But I bought it for very specific reasons, and I would not tell anybody else that they made the 'wrong' choice if they picked an HP or a Dell.
I am not having a go at you, but I think the guy who suggested you could get a Windows-based Macbook Pro-esque laptop is just plain stupid.
Sorry if that felt like a rant at you, its not.
