hmmm.... www.staingate.org reports Apple not only admitted the problem but has taken steps to address it, including replacing screens free of charge. So they not only admitted it, they're doing the right thing and fixing it.That sure beats Apple which never has any problems that it will admit to: Apple is ignoring a major problem with MacBook screen stains | Apple | Geek.com
Both companies have their strengths and weaknesses but if I'm to judge MS on their launch of SB and SP4. they blew it. Apologizing for delivering a poor customer experience is nice, but doesn't mean much to any of us who spent countless hours with MS Tech Support trying to get our machines to work. I know people that exchanged up to three times before receiving a machine that worked. That's lousy quality control by anyone's definition.
In the end, comparing Apple and Microsoft is a bit like comparing apples and oranges. Just not the same companies, and that's a good thing for all of us
Criticism aside, I like the SP4 and SB a lot. When you get your hands on working versions, they're wonderful machines.
