    the aging of that video depends on the PC, so in my case, it's aged nicely
    Also the user makes a difference. I can't use a mac to save my life. As fast as it may be it'll still take years for me to figure out how to do basic things XD

    comparing a laptop that uses like 40w at most to a desktop that has a power limit of hundreds of watts is not fair. you have to compare products to their direct competitors.

    the video was about raw performance.

    1. I can agree with you to a point, but it's not entirely off comparison as the same unit of measurement is being used for both. Objectively it's a true comparison to say a Ferrari is faster than a grand caravan, even if that comparison isn't apples to apples. purposes are very different there, but with apple vs pc, they both advertise being better than the other as a computer, so I think it is a fair comparison in some regards, though not a very useful one. To your point of direct competitors, I think it's important to go based off price, not just the class of product assigned by the company. If Apple is going to price a low power laptop the same as a medium to high powered desktop, then they can expect to be compared in that ring. Price is king.

    2. My post was honestly more of a joking comment. While advertising and price can lead apple to be compared to a does-it-all medium pc, apple does cater more towards creatives and also includes a swath of features accordingly, so that falls in the cost as well. Many will add MAC OS included as part of the cost, but as Windows comes included as part of most prebuilt pcs, I consider those to cancel each other out and leave that to preference. To each their own.

    you'd have to compare to a similarly priced laptop. comparing to a desktop isn't fair since there is no custom board, screen etc included in that cost.

    That's fair though my same point remains. Regardless of where you believe the value lies, Apple is more expensive on a hardware basis.
