But with that being said, I still don't think this is a big deal. It'd be one thing if he was using a computer made by Dell, Acer, etc. because they all have the same OS. He'd pretty much be admitting their computers are better. But if he likes Mac OS, the only company you can buy one from is Apple.
Their computers provide pretty different experiences. If you want a Windows PC, this will do nothing to persuade you from HP. If you want a Mac, then it doesn't matter what computer HP's chairman is using because you're not buying an HP computer anyway.Does this rag smell like chloroform to you?

There are things I can do on my PC that i cant on my mac, mainly work related stuff, sure there are mac alternatives, but that isnt the standard across businesses, so unfortunately we have to conform.
with that said i have a 2010 MBP that i love and use religiously, at the same time, a have a top of the line HP elite workstation provided by my employer, and i coudlnt be any happier with it and its intended functions.
Apple just isnt ready to take on FULL enterprise solutions. would cost businesses too much and learning curve for some to continue to be efficient isnt worth the hassle.

I would think the smart thing to do is what apple did. Take great ideas, steal and improve on them then make them your own. By owning and using your competitors products you have a good opportunity to see what they do well and mold the idea into your own product!!! He's doing the right thing.

This could just be the first funny thing we see like this as HP begin their move away from being a hardware company and towards being a software company!

Windows laptops don't look bad, they actually look pretty good. Macs also look nice, but in a different way. That's why I would rather get both rather than having to choose one of the two. Though if I did, I'dget one of those sexy gaming laptops
