<HP DV6T> $999 US 2.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 6GB 1333MHz 750GB 5400-rpm HD Intel HD Graphics 3000 AMD Radeon HD 6570M with 1GB GDDR5 15" LCD Screen (1366x768) 6 hours battery life <Macbook Pro> $1799 US 2.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 4GB 1333MHz 500GB 5400-rpm HD Intel HD Graphics 3000 AMD Radeon HD 6490M with 256MB GDDR5 15" LCD Screen (1440x900) 7 hours battery life So for an extra $800 you get: *2GB less ram *250GB less HD space *A much, much weaker video card *A slightly higher-resolution LCD *1 hour extra battery life *The usual Apple extras (better build quality, iLife, OSX) ...and that isn't even the street price on the HP! How can Apple justify this pricing. The competition is offering much better machines (hardware-wise) for $800 (or more) less. It just doesn't make sense to me. I need a new laptop, but I just don't know if I can go with Apple with an "Apple Tax" of this size.
