Apple Tax Repealed? Comparisons Suggest It’s So

Our friends at Laptop compiled a chart comparing the new $US999 white unibody MacBook to similarly weighted 13-inch laptops from Dell, Acer and Samsung within $US100. While there are tradeoffs, Apple fights this one out on even ground, and makes up for lacks (no SD slot, smaller HDD, less RAM) with perks (LED backlighting, multitouch trackpad) and a much higher stated battery life. Feel free to scream it out below, or check Laptop for the full chart and spec rundown. [Laptop]
