Why can't anyone beat Apple at making laptops? Like seriously no other company even compares in regards to power, efficiency, display prowess, looks, build quality, longevity.
Are they even trying?

MacOS destroys windows in many aspects

Virtually complete vertical integration. Now they're moving to drop Samsung and making their own miniLEDs soon.

everyone does
>no other company even compares in regards to power
(insert any Ryzen laptop)
>efficiency
AMD Zen 4. Their low power usage comes from the integrated IO and not the CPU cores.
>display
ASUS has OLED laptops.
>looks
Apple 10 years ago.
>build quality
Carving a chassis from a block of aluminium is a shit design and just adds in time and material cost, since aluminium is actually a shit metal and it will bend like a tin can if you drop it. Only thing that does is makes it feel hard as a rock, like a cock, you fucking faggot with your erect penis laptop, get AIDS and die.
>longevity
Latitude, ThinkPad, EliteBook, ZBook, whatever that isn't cheap.

2015 retina. Chunks missing from display lid edge, this is so fucking common on all aluminium laptops. I bought a crap used thinkpad once and it still looked new. Bought another less crap one and it still felt like new because the plastic is strong and shit like this just doesn't happen to plastic.

how about tuxedo computers or system 76. They can do the same thing's as your mac can, and you can changed how there build and what ever.
>>
>>91117887
Do you really want to know?
>>
>>91118560
Tuxedo or 76 are just pc part distributors (and linux distributor in one case). They don't design chips or even the internals of Linux.
>>
>>91118560
>They can do the same thing's
except staying powered on for more than 5h on battery or having a good screen, or speakers, or being silent, or looking moderately good
>>
>>91118756
Tuxedo can do all that.
>>
>>91117887
if only you could do more than watching instagram or youtube on apple shit

There is no need to changed that much, there based on ubuntu and all they really changed is the DE. That's all they did.

Microsoft fucked up and Google can't compete at the high end because it datamines its customers.
>>91118021
Nah, vertical integration isn't all that important at the moment, most of the components are still not Apple. Their margins allowed them to buy a node lead, that is all.
What's far more important is the correct monetary incentives. Hardware needs to be designed for and needs to be able to share the profits from the rest of the ecosystem (ie. app store etc). That way the monetary incentives line up to deliver quality product. The PC market is too much incentivized to deliver trash and cut and run.
Chromebooks are already better in that respect, but Google can only really target the low end because of datamining. They will never be able to sell proper high end products as long as they are just filthy ad pushers.


Apple is vertically integrating now, but that's mostly so they can cut future competition off at the knees. Apple got big by building systems from open components, if they eliminate that what is a new competitor going to do? Start up an entire supply chain from scratch?

If you don't drop them they can look nice for a decade or more. The plastic ones get scratched up and end up looking shitty after a few years of normal use even if you don't drop them.

System76 is not a hardware manufacturer, they resell cheap klevo laptops

it actually good that apple set the price ceiling on laptops
any laptop above macbook price is automatic trash

>>91117887
are there any other laptop manufaturers that make pure metal chassis laptops like apple does, but for windows? i've noticed that nearly every windows laptop feels like fucking plastic or only has parts that are metal, rather than the whole thing being metal.
