Hi, I read your article and was a little surprised. You basically took an other notebook and installed Ubuntu on it. I think you did not get the point of MacBook Pro. It is true that you can build better machines cheaper, but the OS of Mac is unbeatable to date. The biggest problem is to adapt the OS to other machines. I don’t like Apple, but have to admit, that the OS X, which is based on Unix, is the best OS in the market. It combines simplicity and the power of Linux.
