HP Envy XT Touchsmart: I started a new job today, so didn’t really have any time to do anything new or different*. Helpfully, neither did HP.
*Before you moan, a touchscreen on a laptop is neither “new” nor “different”.

HP Spectre: “Ah, MacBook Pro, we meet again. But this time the advantage is mine.”
From Wikipedia:

SPECTRE began…as a small group of criminals but became a vast international organisation with its own SPECTRE Island training base in the films
As quoted by Blofeld on several occasions: “This organisation does not tolerate failure”

Others may comment; I merely admire.

Dell XPS 13: I don’t think it would take Hercule Poirot long to figure out that the original template for this new laptop, sorry ultrabook (or is it Ultrabook? Is it a brand name? Do we even care?) might have come from the pen of the dashing Sir Jonathan Ive, though that’s often the case with Poirot - we sit there shouting at the television for ninety minutes (“Can’t you see? It looks like a MacBook Air! Look at it!”) before the big reveal. No, this is more like Columbo - we find out “whodunnit” right at the start.
(I’m sorry, I’ve been watching Poirot on Netflix this evening- turns out it was his old mate Sir Charles all along who had to bump off Tolly Strange, who knew about his wife, who was in a sanatorium, and then kill his wife, so that he could marry Egg!)

Acer Aspire S5 power adaptor: “MagSafe-esque”. Of course, there are only so many ways you can design a magnetically attached, easily detachable, right-angled power cord (henceforth the “there are only so many ways you can draw a stick man theory of design defence”).

Lenovo IdeaPad U310: We’re having a fairly heated argument here - I say this is inspired by the MacBook Pro, others are suggesting that it is “merely heavily influenced” by it. Expect this debate to rage on for literally minutes more.

Acer Aspire S3: Acer have been making low cost, affordable laptops for years. Here’s one they’ve made that would appear, on the face of it, to take some (perhaps even all?) of its design cues from the Asus Zenbook, sorry I mean the Lenovo IdeapPad 300s. They all look like the MacBook Air. FUNNY THAT.

HP Envy 15: “It’s fine. No-one will ever put it side-to-side with a MacBook Pro. No-one will ever know.”
