Kim in Appalachia Posted August 24, 2012 Share Posted August 24, 2012 This is an honest question. I'm trying to understand why Macbook pros cost more than PC laptops. 1st laptop http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Toshiba+-+15.6%26%2334%3B+Satellite+Laptop+-+8GB+Memory+-+750GB+Hard+Drive+-+Champagne+Silver/5559896.p?id=1218660314851&skuId=5559896 It's a Toshiba with a 15.6 screen, 8GB memory and 750 GB hard drive Then there's the Mac http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Apple%26%23174%3B+-+MacBook%26%23174%3B+Pro+-+15.4%22+Display+-+8GB+Memory+-+750GB+Hard+Drive/3827161.p?id=1218434728950&skuId=3827161 Besides being over 2x the price, how is it different (beside being a Mac operating system). This is an ultrabook. I don't understand them either. :tongue_smilie: It's closer in price to a Mac. But why? http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Samsung+-+Series+9+Ultrabook+15%26%2334%3B+Laptop+-+8GB+Memory+-+128GB+Solid+State+Drive+-+Mineral+Ash+Black/5575733.p?id=1218665494277&skuId=557573 I would love if someone could explain it all. Next year we will need to get a laptop. I don't mind paying for quality, but I don't like paying for a name. :001_smile: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
