Apple MacBook Pro laptops are expensive. Sure, there is some specialized software and R&D that comes with MacBooks, but in the end we all know that there are far cheaper PC alternatives out there with similar specifications.
Some people, however, may love the look and the feel of a MacBook Pro, be it Mac OS X or just that glowing Apple logo on the back.
Rather than paying a four digit figure for such a machine, there's the alternative of this rather amusing knock off from China (though all MacBooks are made in China too).
This fake MacBook Pro is advertised as a Windows 7 machine, although the photos do suggest otherwise. It's unclear if it actually runs Mac OS X, and there is a Windows key on the keyboard rather than the Apple specific keys.
Inside, the machine is powered by an Intel Atom D510 1.66GHz CPU, 2GB of RAM and a 320GB HDD. On the graphics side, it claims to have Nvidia Ion 2, making it quite an impressive little media machine.
It sells for 3100 yuan (about $466), which is tons cheaper than the thousands for the real thing.

Looks like another netbook in sheep's clothing to me.
as the price of this is <$500 it is actually more a netbook than laptop
on the other hand, how do you feel about over paying for an i7 dual core with HT
ACtually dude, the OS is quite good....really good.... its way more stable the windoze .... more faster ....
and i know coz i hackintoshed an old P4 with onboard graphics and a mere 1 gb ram to run osx leopard just for fun...
guess what ....it kicks ass of windows xp on the same system...no more bsod's..... video is bit choppy....but its the same in windows 7 too......(too bad i had to format everything to install ubuntu)
actuallly all the apple fanboys are gung ho about the OS .... too bad they dont realize (or do) that they are getting ripped off in the hardware dept
.... but yeah....for its price .... u can get a hp mbp lookalike to do its job....
but i wouldnt pay 5 times just for the os...id get linux for the internet instead and use windows for games :bounce:
