There aren't any more ideas. Apple already thought up all the ideas. Apple's ideas have been used by everyone for so long they should be made public domain.
Is that what you call competing?
There aren't any more ideas you wrote.
You certainly never had one.
THX. to copy & paste.
I'm sorry. I completely 'misunderestimated' that such a preposterous remark would require a '/s' so there it is.
Keep in mind that pretty much every single one of Apple's new products/form factors/design decisions is mocked to hell and back when first unveiled
iPhone- LOL NO PHYSICAL KEYBOARD NO PORTS NO REMOVABLE STORAGE NON REMOVABLE BATTERY FAIL!!!
Macbook Air- LOL NOBODY WANTS A LAPTOP THAT THIN WHAT ARE THEY THINKING LOL NO REMOVABLE BATTERY LOL NO TRACKPAD BUTTON
iPad: LOL MASSIVE IPOD TOUCH WITH PHONE OS TABLETS ARE A FAIL SO MUCH WORSE THAN A NETBOOK, NETBOOKS ALL THE WAY
Magic Trackpad: LOL TRACKPADS SUCK WHY PUT THEM WITH A DESKTOP TRYING TO MAKE EVERYTHING LIKE A TOY LOL APPLE
Etc Etc. I remember well how many each these things, and everything else Apple has made, were bashed when first released. The Macbook Air was seen as a joke by so many. Yet, now it's 'obvious design' of course, and Apple haters fanatically cheerlead competing, identical looking machines, calling it 'obvious' design, and feigning ignorance at the resemblance. LOL DID APPLE PATENT THIN LAPTOPS??! No, you morons, but you mocked the damn thing when the only company who made that form factor was Apple. A virtual touch keyboard was "laughable and pathetic", until everyone else started doing it. Now, of course, an ultrabook is awesome if its made by Samsung/HP/Asus, non-removable battery and all. Same thing here, where the trolls pretend not to see the resemblance and call it 'obvious' design. I wonder how many of these 'obvious designs' would have seen the light of day if Apple did not exist? Wild guess: 0. Somehow, obvious design stems from Apple's design EACH and EVERY time. Must be coincidence, or something. Its just the 'natural evolution' of things.
I feel the same way. They are trying to create rather than steal. Their efforts are not glorious, but they are workable. Now, If they had anyone other than Ballmer at the helm they might be able to succeed.

Okay, fine, pick up this story that is on the other Mac sites.
But at least include the Vizio model that I mentioned in one of the earlier comment sections. You know, the one that does the exact same thing, ignoring all the earlier hoo-hah about "trackpads on a desktop computer" that the Anti-Apple Brigade loves to whine about.
On a different note, where can I get a HalfBook Pro?
Even longer, considering the G5 iMac. Apple has been right for eight years.
And if HP or Vizio are at all infringing, Apple'll give them a gesture, that's for sure.
The one that was reportedly considering dropping computers entirely, that is.
I must have missed the products that Braun have in the computer industry ... I'm sure we'd all like to see their Laptop
When Apple produce an Apple Coffee Maker we can then say they may have copied braun
I wish they had dislike votes enabled, majortom1981 obviously dislikes Apple
Braun made computers??

I love how anyone that doesn't instantly agree with Apple's side in all things is instantly labeled a "hater" on this site. I own a 13" and 15" MBP, I've owned every single iPhone since the 3G, every single iPod since the Windows-compatible 1.5G came out, and have been using Apple computers since the II came out way back when, but yeah I'm such a "hater" because I don't look at a similar product from the competition and scream "RAPE!"
Yeesh. Fanboys. Steve, save us from your followers.
I agree. Reaching around the back to plug in my camera card reader is a pain. That is about the only thing I use USB for on the iMac. That HP also looks like it has a SD card reader in the stand which is pretty cool although I use Compact Flash a lot too.
Perhaps HP is planning on going out in "style" this year...
Or, it was necessary to copy Apple this year, since they canned all their designers last year...
HP's sales slogan this year: "Little Dude, You're Getting a HaPple!"
These guys should join Samsung on planet Kamino.
