quote: Apple didn't even get close
quote: How is the C2D in the Macs any better whats in the PCs?
quote: it's the cheap 6 bit panels Apple uses inside
quote: please explain why is apple MBP LED so much better
quote: view angles? same gamut? cheap LED inside? how come?
quote: Yeah, please someone explain this poor soul why LED backlight is better than CCFL one, starting with color gamut and power consumption.
quote: "cheap LED-powered displays can have a worse-than-usual gamut", which is obviously NOT the case with MBP LED, you could see that yourself being not the illiterate idiot you are, excuse me for some straight talk here), so learn to read and stop posting obvious bullshit here, thank you.
quote: where's your proof?
quote: how about a velocity micro with dual 8800M GTX
quote: the fact that your average post rating is now below 0.75 are all indicative of the fact that...
quote: kindly do us all a favor and give it up completely and admit apple really needs to stop with its bullsh*t
quote: i have an amd workstation which runs linux, so you can't call me a 'wintel' zealot
quote: what teldar was trying to say
quote: you are the one who prefers an extremely niche product
quote: is it important or isn't it?
quote: most of those 17" laptops had led backlit 1900x1200 displays
quote: Wintel zealot can run anything, it does not matter what hardware you run, it's your attitude that matters. The moment you post obvious bullshit about Apple and Wintel PCs (AMD == Intel in this context) you're a Wintel zealot to me. It's just the convenient term that characterizes all of the guys like you and it has nothing to do with hardware. Windows is also a generalization in this context. Again, Wintel zealotry is all about your attitude, not your hardware.
quote: There's a difference between niche product who appeals to a niche market and a niche product that appeals to the mass market. In the latter case the product is niche because it's out of reach for most people, but most people still desire it. Compare it to the case where only a few gaming freaks desire huge and heavy 17" monsters from Alienware. See the difference?
quote: they just have a few special features you really care about
quote: machine that's advertised as being able to handle professional graphics work
quote: You should realize how wrong it is for them to use 6bit ones in the 15" models and misleadingly advertise otherwise
quote: If the macbook pro appealed to the mass market, it would be popular. It's not
quote: they are marking you down because every time you post, it is full of rhetoric and nonsensical arguments that clearly show your unbelievable bias towards Apple
quote: There's an option in the Displays screen, under System Preferences in Mac OS X, in which you can set the Colors option to "millions." The thing is, the MacBook Pro uses a 6-bit display , and Apple can get to that "millions" number only by using a technique called dithering, which basically blends pixels together to create a shading effect.
quote: How about CNET?
quote: Apple is TELLING people their computers are capable of millions of colors. That is a 100% lie.
quote: CNET has a reputation of only publishing facts to keep up
quote: good lord you're annoying
quote: A technical point that Apple settled on in court.
quote: I go to you claiming that your marketing representations are false. You prove me wrong, then somehow get me to agree to tell nobody about it (evidently you didn't pay me to do so), leaving the door wide open for other people to waste your time and money with further lawsuits about the same thing.
quote: Now let's see how fanatical you are, and whether you're going to just dismiss my scenario w/o arguments like any fanatic will... or if you are not fanatic - in this case you at least are going to try and give me some solid counter arguments. I'm waiting :)
quote: Hot on the heels of the settlement, Los Angeles legal firm powerhouse, Kabateck Brown Kellner, smelled blood and filed a class action against Apple for false advertising.
quote: You still haven't explained why they would have gotten the plaintiffs to agree to complete confidentiality if there were nothing wrong with their marketing
quote: Not only does it have a 6 bit panel
quote: keep arguing that the sky is green
quote: instead of just winning the case Apple settles with them for some reason and asks them to keep the fact that Apple was indeed right a secret from the rest of the world
quote: Would it be too much to ask you to admit that Apple might actually be wrong for once, because you just can't seem to accept it.
quote: Would it be too much to ask you to prove that Apple actually installs 6-bit LCD panels in their MacBook Pro models these days, because you just can't seem to be able to prove it.
quote: Notice how quickly their arguments fall to pieces when you ask THEM to prove something
quote: The fact that Apple settled with the plaintiffs supports this
quote: a settlement from a lawsuit is not a rumor. it happened. accept it. move on. grow up.
quote: I really really doubt they have magic ram or hard drives either
quote: people like you who bash PCs
quote: I've actually never seen a Macbook in real life
quote: I've actually never seen a Macbook in real life, Plenty of Acer Notebooks though
quote: window laptops certainly don't neccesarily win because they're better, but it's what most consumers know or have heard of
quote: as if the HP business line and the IBM thinkpad line aren't "quality" computers.
quote: at least they have 8bit screens
quote: you seem to think all pc laptops are junk and that's simply not the case
quote: considering entry level Macbooks are about twice as expensive as entry level consumer Acers in Australia
quote: If apple hadn't made a deal with intel and gotten some sort of discount allowing you to get Xeon chips really cheap, I wouldn't have gained anything from buying this configuration from them
quote: I never said it was more expensive, only that it's not any different
quote: How do you like them apples?
quote: Under performing? If you consider keyboard quality, screen quality, weight and thickness a set of performance metrics, then MacBook Pro 17" not only OVER performs, it's just unreachable for current generation of Wintel notebooks judging by these metrics.
quote: Another thing is that I like that the batter lasts for 3 - 5 hours doing various tasks and I also put Windows Vista on my book.
quote: and Toyota's don't? I call BS.
quote: let's remove a bunch of useful peripherals to make the notebook lighter
quote: Consumer: HP or Dell PWNS Macbook
quote: Fiberoptic backlighting is not useful
quote: The MBA is inferior to the EeePC in so many ways
quote: Can you top that?
quote: A piece of crap overpriced laptop that is loved by a downrated fanboy who has thinks it's as golden as jesus' ass, but has no real facts to base on that the Eee is crap
quote: You'll have to get a USB hub, then buy a USB to ethernet adapter. Hahaha.
quote: You have crappy speakers (I don't even know if the MBA has one), my speakers are actually surprisingly good, though there is a cut off on lower frequencies
quote: You have some shit wireless card, while mine can pick up networks with no bars about 50 feet away
quote: You have a better GPU and CPU, but I can get the same damn shit for even half the price
quote: Did the MBA have a card reader?
quote: Look at the screen on the Eee, do you see any crappy support in color? No. You see all the colors you need to see.
quote: Can you drop the MBA down a flight of stairs?
quote: You can put anything on the Eee
quote: By the way, Expect the Eee to have an 8.9 screen that supports 1024x600.
quote: The MBA doesn't exactly come with an SSD. You have to get it.
quote: The Eee is a budget laptop that is suppose to be portable. And quite portable it is.
quote: And once you get used to the Eee keyboard, and have skinny fingers like I do
quote: The plastic is a lot more impact resistant than you think
quote: You are talking about the Eee like you think you know something. You haven't used it for 4 months. I don't see you owning an Eee, so you have no right either. So maybe you should stop being a retarded teenager and just face it that Apple products suck.
quote: Apple is actually getting publicly revealed on their bad practices
quote: Think about it. The cheapo Wintel PC makers have REMOVED useful options and still made their laptops HEAVIER and THICKER at the same time!
quote: what does a Back-lit keyboard do? It sucks extra energy
quote: in terms of PRICE/PERFORMANCE
quote: you continually keep saying people are buying Macs in droves
quote: bright Orange/Pink cheap plastic look of the Mac
quote: thats why 90% of Intel's sales in the USA is the QX90something
quote: for what he said about the orange and pink plastic
quote: kyleb2112 said, "these displays don't cut it", referring to the notebook displays mentioned in the article.
quote: If you know nothing about LCD panel tech, WTF are you even commenting on the article?
quote: you certainly have managed to steer the conversation to Lexuses and Chevys
quote: So, yeah, these particular displays don't cut it.
quote: If you can't follow this thread and understand what kyleb2112 was talking about WTF are you even posting here?
quote: You can't even notice who REALLY started all this Lexus/Chevy thread.
quote: Read it again
quote: How do you sit down with those giant testicles
quote: The average consumers suffer the consequence of the expense of fighting these types of suits... higher prices.
quote: The Apple consumers suffer the consequence of buying expensive products from Apple... higher prices.
quote: Anandtech review of LCD displays
quote: Vista is poorly coded. I wouldn't run it on a quad with 8GB of RAM. Eat this.
quote: Vista is poorly coded
quote: I don't go overboard and think that anything like AMD, Apple, Microsoft, or any other company is as golden as jesus' shit.
quote: I guess this explains why Macs are gaining market share.
quote: Which also explains why Vista has sold significantly more copies then Leopard
quote: MacBook LCD are only 6-bit TFT models
quote: Someone should read an Anandtech review of LCD displays.They would realize that with dithering a 6-bit panel (which is what most people have on their desktops) displays 16.2 million colors (253^3 - you drop the two LSB of the 8-bit block).
quote: Sure none of us know anything about the actual terms of the settlement but logically speaking
quote: Even us Mac users are starting to think you're a troll
quote: shut the hell up.
quote: Apple should counter sue these people for being stupid.
quote: Apple should counter sue these people for being stupid. quote: Apple already sues their users for being stupid. They just tack a shiny bezel and $500 price tag onto existing hardware and call it a day. Less lawyers that way.

quote: iphones were crippled because Apple did not want people doing it.
quote: The case's own lawyers realized that they would not be able to obtain class action due to difficulty finding enough plaintiffs who bought the Macs singly on the "millions of colors" advertising, and thus pursued alternative legal action, adding to many observers cyncism on the seriousness of the suit.
quote: a company fudged a few details in their ad?!!!
quote: it is up to YOU to find out the features of the product
quote: millions of colors, most of which the human eye couldn't differentiate between anyway
quote: The proof is in the fact that Apple settled with the 2 guys who sued them
quote: glitch in hardware or something
quote: Finally, you have at least admitted
quote: MBP 15.4"
quote: There is no 15.4" 1440x900 notebook lcd with 16M colors.
quote: Why don't you prove that they ARE using an 8 bit panel. It's true, so it should be easy right?
quote: Instead you choose to blindly believe a corporation that stands to gain by lying to you.
quote: What do bloggers and chatters have to gain by telling you that a corporation is lying?
