    Under "Performance" they literally have half the screen with a Windows app, and the second half with Finder. I can't believe this got through.

    I'm convinced the default state of a company is "incompetent." Companies that figure out how to be even reasonably competent at their work tend to massively blow every other out of the water.

      I think that logic can be applied to any group of people. The more people involved, the higher probability things are going horribly wrong.

        Absolutely. As you add people, the complexity increases and the problem gets exponentially more difficult. This is why work within a large company is making internal systems work to enable the gains of larger teams. Otherwise, you easily just work against yourself, which is why a 10 person company can often (excuse the term) disrupt huge industries in a very real way.

    Haha it's as if they've hired a marketing agency who have proceeded to troll them massively!

    Part of me is thinking this is intentional and they're hinting that this is designed to become a Hackintosh.

    It's not explicitly stated or anything (because I imagine that's not allowed), but it would make sense. Equivalent hardware from Apple is probably, like, double the cost of this.

    Alternatively the marketing guy who was in charge of the screenshots just didn't give a shit and wanted to go out with a bang.

    Its hilarious that the comments-section have Uppercase !important; applied to each comment. Making it look like everyone is SHOUTING. Actually pretty much all the CSS is !important.

    I feel sorry for the people who worked on the hardware to create a probably pretty good computer only to be display in such a bad light. Someones getting fired

    This underscores the importance of QA.

    I mean, you can run OSX on it in all likelihood.

    This doesn't even have a high resolution screen like the Macbook and it's still $1500?

    Yikes.

    They removed entire section that originally included FC and Logic pro. But... this screenshot looks like Windows XP to me. Screenshot Ok I will stop here :)

    Sorry I had to comment again, just one review caught my eye: 'Fantastic Product!! Revolutionary design!! Light Weight, best in its class!' Sounds far from legit..

    They even use the name G5 SE for their next phone.
