Well, Xbitlabs has lost me as a visitor as well.

There's so much flexibility over Windows, it ain't funny.

Well, if you enjoy paying Microsoft for more crap that barely holds together, go right ahead.

(And that's not all, 342 is right...If not for Microsoft, security companies like Symantec wouldn't exist! I notice they're the first ones to say Linux or OS X users should be wary of viri and such...Who do they think we are? No clue idiots who are willing to pay anything to solve our problems? When you start using Linux, you learn very quickly about security.)

LOL, about Xbitlabs using open-source, and yet they criticise an open-source solution in their article. Way to go!

Negative! If everyone used Linux instead of Windows you would have a polar opposite situation. Why do you think Mac has very few viruses? Because the jerks that write the viruses don't care if they infect 2% of people that use an OS that is used by 2% of total computer users. You can bash MS all you want but they are "bad" because they are the big guy.

Most of you Linux/open source guys just use the OS cause you feel important. No one really cares that you are using Gentoo.

It continues the poor trend Vasily started in the previous article: "Your A4-Size Business Companion: Choosing the Best Compact Notebook. Part I"

Seems more and more like they are sponsored by the Wintel alliance. Intel and Microsoft are the best choices! Give me a break.

Like the others posters stated, I'll stop visiting this site and read more neutral sites like Anandtech. No more hits from me and no more links to this site.

You are not entirely correct. I recently purchased a laptop with a current Amd 3000+ processor, a DVD-RW+, Wi-Fi, 256mb DDR, [to which I added a 512mb stick of Corsair XMS DDR] 40gb hard drive, XP home, and software for a total of $628.00.
