The abyss between Apple and its competitors

I started chatting with my brother about corporate laptops and how ugly they generally are. He works for a large corporation that doesn’t offer any choice: he can get any computer he wants provided it’s black and runs Windows. Poor thing. I am lucky enough to work for a company that allows me to use Apple products:  I could have had a Mac if I wanted to but  I chose not to use Apple hardware because I would not have used its operating system (I tried some time ago and gave up).

The conversation made me sad to realize that on one hand Apple offers beautiful designs, great machines shown at art museums, noble materials. On the other companies like Dell and Lenovo offer only ugly plastic, basic components assembled together in heavy chassis, awful chargers and the same basic design since the 90s. The abyss between Apple products and its competitors justifies its +$500 per share.
