How is this a fair evaluation??? Everyone's phone lineup has a ton of phones. Apple has 1! How about narrowing it down to one phone against the iphone. Like the droid incredible, droid x, palm pre, etc...

Being such a "tech" infused site, it seems most here seem to forget we're still talking about mass produced, general consumer products.
Whether you can have motion wallpaper, or can IP Print is pretty irrelevant to the vast majority of people buying these products.
They want a product the works reliably, and in the case of Apple computers, are willing to pay a small premium for that. That's one of the major pluses of the oft-complained about "closed" apple system. It's their hardware and their software, giving them a major advantage in reliability. For the average consumer, the windows platform (and likely soon the Droid platform) suffers from too many choices, and too many potential variables.

What??? Lack of features? What phone has a Retina Display, with one of the best cameras, the most applications, multitasking without battery drainage, front facing camera, facetime, all this in a complete package? Yea No.....
Lack of Support.... Apple has the best support. Go into an apple store with a problem? Replacement. Best customer service.
Lack of Connectivity? Hmm Wifi, Facetime, 3G, Bluetooth.... Oh and if your going to rant about Antenna Problems then stop because not everyone had it.....
Please dont give false info to anyone.
Ok.... Stock GUI? Is the easiest to use, and the cleanest... Is Sad? Whats wrong with it? Winterboard changes icons, colors, but the GUI is still the same.....
HAAHHA!! The battery????? The battery is one of the best for smartphones....
I think your PC runs poorly....
Keep on living by giving people false information without research or anything....
Really than no other phone is reliable... For me ATT is VERY reliable.... Verizon was not.... You dont make all the customers.... This phone is reliable BECAUSE they constantly put out updates and DONT release them without checking.... Your fault if your using betas.... RELIABILITY IS NOT DURABILITY.... Because then no phone is reliable... This phone is reliable because the antenna problem dosent affect everyone, and the phone gets great signal. This phone is reliable because the company is willing to fix things.... This phone is reliable because its battery life is long... It is reliable because the OS is stable....
Maybe you have the problem, but lots of other people (like me) dont. Simple touch? I couldnt get mine to loose signal with a hard grip.
In terms of finished product, the Macbook is it.
FIRST the $1700 come with an i5 and 2100 come with i7. The 2499 one you were talking about comes with more....
The Macbooks come with a 1 year apple care, replacement warranty. Our Macbooks come with software that you would buy and it would be hundreds of dollars.... Movie editing, Total Sound Editing, Photos. It has a big multitouch trackpad, island backlight keyboard, full aluminum construction. A 9-10 Battery (Way worth it), Nvidia, It is portable, thin, durable. Reliable.
1920x1200 Resolution (Better than the Dv7). It has many outputs.
The OSX operating system.
So really it does end up to be worth more. It all adds up to the full experience.

in case anyone is curious or shares my ideas, here are my reasons for keeping my iphone instead of fully committing to verizon. mind you I have owned 4 droid(insert name here) phones 1 of which is an android phones but not a verizon droid-something phones. droid, droid eris, droid incredible, and t-mobile g1.
one of the main reasons i kept my iphone 3gS is: lcd screen. in broad sunlight i can read the screen no problem, try that with an amoled/super amoled screen, second there are apps that are non-negotiable as far as being without them on my phone that aren't available for android or have an android version that isn't nearly as good or simply require a lot of work and only work some of the time. i also like the fact that my charge/sync connector is on the bottom of my phone making it much easier to plug onto a dock rather than some weird position like the bottom side of it.
also the 30-pin dock connector is a lot more sturdy than the micro-usb that most android phones use. what else can i think of? oh yeah the on screen keyboard on the iphone is fantastic and all versions of motorola/htc/samsung android on screen keyboards are like pulling teeth. i never imagined it would be harder to type on the 4.3 inch motorola droid x than on my 3.5 inch iphone 3gS
and then there is the battery. i know the iphone doesn't get high marks for its battery life but take my droid incredible for example, the battery life on that thing was unbelievably ridiculous. in the time it took my iphone to get to say...80%, the incredible would be at 40%, at 65% on the iphone(still very usable), the inredible's battery was just about dead and continuously flashing the low battery icon. i had to spend an extra 40 dollars on a seidio extended battery for it and even then it was still always 10% less than my iphone. sure the iphone doesn't have a replaceable battery but i've never really needed one and knowing how the battery life is i make sure if i need to do something very battery hungry that i'm near a charger.
i will say though all the android phones i've used seem to have louder earpiece and speakerphone volumes than the iphone but there is a certain point at which it doesn't matter because its still too quiet.
the 5mp camera on my iphone 4 is much better than the 8mp camera that was on my droid incredible in terms of shutter speed and picture quality.
another thing probably trivial but still important to me, i only use 1 case on all my phones: the incase slider. they don't make it for any phone that isn't an iphone so thats another dealbreaker. i could perhaps find something similar for an android phone but i don't think i'd like it as much.
there is more but i don't feel like typing it all out right now. i'll update this post as necessary.
