Dell XPS 15z: One of the things I enjoy the most about doing this website is just how easy it is. I’m lazy, you see, but not, it seems, as lazy as Dell. In fact, I’d wager that it took the folks at Resources For Life longer to prepare this handy “Crikey! With the XPS 15z, Dell just copied the MacBook Pro!” guide than Dell took to “design” it in the first place.

Engadget reviews the HP Envy 15
Engadget’s review of the HP Envy 15 is in:
But HP stumbles in several critical areas: the Envy 15 is heavier than other laptops in its class, and in exchange for toting that extra heft, you’re rewarded with middling battery life. The keyboard’s alright, but we did have to type in a deliberate way to ensure it recognized our every press. The display appears to have some color calibration problems. Most importantly, though, the laptop’s saddled with a finicky, stiff touchpad — a nuisance large enough to slow down your entire workflow. A shame, since this is an otherwise speedy machine. Because of these shortcomings, the Envy 15 doesn’t best the MacBook Pro, though it admirably undercuts its lofty $1,800 starting price. All told, the Envy 15 offers some compelling features for the money, but before you pull the trigger we’d suggest you also check out the Dell XPS 15z, which is lighter with a comfier keyboard / trackpad, as well as the long-lasting Samsung Series 7 Chronos. If you do go for the Envy 15, we hope you have a pretty stationary setup in mind: you’ll want an outlet close by and also, a mouse.

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

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.

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