But Apple was found to be guilty. That's more important than the $3k for a single user.
Suck.
My prognostication: As Steve Jobs said a year ago with the release of the redesigned Air, "this is the future of the Macbook line." So I think the Macbook Air and Macbook Pro lines will blur and become one. I really like the direction of the Google Chromebook. I think Apple will surprise us with an iPad3-based device that will be like a Chromebook. No touchscreen, but with a keyboard. Running iOS on an A5 chip. This will dovetail with the whole iCloud initiative. ...
Dedicated graphics + bigger screen = either bigger battery (more weight) or less battery life. And a 4-core chip probably wouldn't help battery life, either. If they go for the 'Air' moniker, they'll go 2-core with integrated graphics and shoot for low weight. If they go for the 'Pro' moniker, they'll go for performance, and basically you'll just get a sleeker look, but it'll essentially be a Super Drive delete and will still weigh in the high-3-pound range, maybe...

Fake. And a really bad one at that. Some kid was playing around with his trial or pirated 3D CAD package. The apple isn't centered in the circle. You wouldn't lay out the drawing that way, especially with the 2 views overlapped in the lower right corner, with one face-down and another one face-up in the background. I wouldn't even say 'nice try'....
Are you sure the Chinese laws are written as such?
We'll have to wait and see what info comes out. My guess is that they probably were, because it'd be a huge task to make an entire Apple lineup of products that were high-quality fakes. 2 scenarios: * The store owner was a legit Apple reseller like Best Buy or Target, did everything on the up-and-up, but then 'decorated' his store to look like an Apple store. * Or, the owner had connections to the Apple product makers like Foxxcon and had them supply him with product on...
That's exactly the issue. If they are selling genuine Apple products, can that reseller make their store look like an Apple store? It all depends on what's allowed by Chinese law. In the U.S., a store couldn't use Apple's logo and other images like this without Apple's consent. You have to understand that China is the pirating capital of the world. They just don't have a moral/ethical problem with copying. It's not as high in their list of 'values' is it is in Western...
The invention of the 'horseless carriage' caused a marked decline in the production of buggy whips.
