...and build laptops with batteries that can't be replaced and hard drives that can't be upgraded easily so that people throw away whole laptops at a time instead of just repairing them. Let's fill the landfills with laptops together!

Only thing "green" about Apple is the rage Apple has toward and company they compete with.
