I’m not saying there’s any validity to Apple’s “copying” lawsuits against Samsung… but
Now, I don’t really keep up with non-Apple hardware all that religiously, so on a recent back-to-school Staples trip I was kind of disgusted at how closely the Samsung laptops now resemble Apple’s MacBooks, with the aluminum chasis, black keyboard, thick black bezel around the screen, and the Samsung logo placed precisely where the words MacBook Pro go on the Apple laptops. In fact, if it weren’t for Samsung being so greedy they take the Intel subsidies and put those ugly stickers on their machines to save a few shekles, one could ALMOST mistakenly buy one thinking they got an Apple laptop. (Yes, that person would have to be an idiot, but then again, that person would be shopping at Staples for a computer).
Anyway, as if the physical design wasn’t bad enough, what REALLY caught my eye was the log-in screen. Does anyone else see an Apple logo in that “abstract” design. PURELY a coincidence, I’m sure, but that design, sitting on that hardware… It’s almost like Samsung was looking for a way to put an Apple logo on their gear and complete the disguise.
Again, not being a student of PC hardware or operating systems, maybe that design is part of Windows 7′s default log-in pics, or, maybe Staples threw it on. Either way, someone’s trying to give the impression that this is basically the same thing as an Apple machine.
