Let’s break down what you get below:
AMD Turion™ X2 RM-72, This isn’t going to be folding protein ladies and gentleman.
4GB DDR2 memory Netbook speed RAM! Now in a Notebook!
17" WXGA+ high-definition widescreen display With BrightView technology and 1440 x 900 resolution (Like the 2003 Powerbook!) Sony’s Vaio P pocket computer has higher resolution.
ATI RADEON HD 3200 graphics RS780M
Features up to 1918MB shared graphics memory. Shared Graphics!
G Wireless and 100Mb Ethernet. That is so 2005!
Weighs 7.8 lbs. and measures just 1.7" thin That is almost double the thickness of Apples offering and a pound heavier.
Good battery life Of up to 2 hours and 30 minutes. That isn’t good.
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium (Cringe)
Software package included
With HP MediaSmart, Microsoft Works, muvee Reveal, Cyberlink DVD Suite and more. 60-day trial of Microsoft Office 2007 Student and Teacher Edition and 60-day trial of Norton Internet Security 2009 also included. Also 300 crapware applications installed for free!
The point? The comparison isn’t a good one.
