Anybody who thinks a vertical touchscreen is a good idea should take a look at using one in a car - its impossible and is far more dangerous than using a phone with physical buttons like an old Nokia.
Anyone who thinks Microsoft's Office UI with white on white on platinum white is good needs a lesson in ergonomics and optics - something that Apple excel in - Apple don't change the UI every time they release a new OS, something that MS have done at least three times, and the latest just sucks. IMHO.
So think about this... if you have a new hardware platform released year after year, what does it do to the value of the machine you are using right now? - that's right, it devalues faster. If you give away a new laptop for £250 as HP do in the UK, how much is it worth next week?, that's right, nothing, zip, nada, so I ask you, is that good for the planet? think before you answer.
A slow product lifecycle is better for you, as an Apple customer, as the products have a longer useful life, retain their value so if you upgrade you can resell it for more than that HP laptop. A slower lifecycle is better for the planet. Period. Use, reuse, recycle. NOT USE, dump.
Most of my Macs have come off eBay [at least three], I am using a 20inch Cinema HD display to write this on, still gorgeous and still working, as is the Mac Cube under my desk, still doing useful work.
