Not sure what's lolworthy about that. It's an ultraportable laptop not a "store your entire life on it from birth to death" workstation


It's lolworthy because it's an ultraportable laptop that costs more than a "store your entire life on it" workstation.


However it works great and looks great. Has amazing support...I won't even go into problems I have had with other companies and their cheap machines. I will either get the HP Envy (Though them are REALLY CHEAPLY MADE NOW, or I will get a maxxed out MBP and eGPU and sell my desktop and never look at a dedicated PC again.)

You're forgetting the cost of the troupe of midget you'll need to carry your workstation around even if you do find one worth a damn for less than the 1k mark. Different class of machine, absolutely brain dead to try and compare them. You want to talk find a comparable ultraportable spec for spec.

Right? For the same price you could get a MBPr with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. Absolutely insane.

The "Macs are overpriced" meme isn't true and hasn't been true for a couple of years now.

For what they are, Macbooks are fairly priced or even cheaper than competing Windows machines.

Perhaps you should provide a link to these supposed competitively priced Windows machines. We will ignore difficult to evaluate factors such as build quality and focus only on the form factor, battery life, and specs.

For that form factor and specs, 899 is a pretty good price. I prefer Windows over iOS myself but that's besides the point.

I would say the $1000 13" is a better deal than the $900. For the $900 model, I prefer the Bestbuy exclusive Yoga 11s instead: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/ideapad-2-in-1-11-6-touch-screen-laptop-intel-core-i5-4gb-memory-128gb-solid-state-drive/1835037.p Though that is admittedly under the assumption that I do not care about graphic capabilities on such a laptop.
