HP Chairman Uses A Mac
Ray Lane, the chairman of HP, uses a MacBook Air in his home. [11/11/2011]
Google's Eric Schmidt isn't the only Apple competitor that uses a MacBook for his Web surfing and computer needs! HP's chairman as well, Ray Lane, uses a MacBook Air.
From my experience I have owned several HP computers. I think they're among the best of the Windows PC lineups out there. I prefer them over Dell, Acer, Toshiba, and Vaio. They come with not only decent specifications but also well designed cases and notebook styles as well. Not all, but a vast majority of HP computers not only look good, but perform good too. I'm a firm believer that a computer that I use on a daily basis should look good. I like owning good looking products. To me, a computer is like my car. I want the computer to look good and perform good. I don't really want to settle with one or the other.
Apple came in to the rescue. The computers look good and also carry all of the modern specifications. Intel Core i5 and Core i7 Sandy Bridge processors, 4-16GB RAM options, SSD/HDD options, and the latest ATI graphics bring the computers in at some of the best OEM performance you can get. On the flip side, the computers look like they've come from the year 3000 with their sleek aluminum bodies, back-lit keyboards, and slim profiles. Windows PC equivalents seldom look as good, but they can certainly match the specifications.
When you're as high up in the boss hierarchy as being the chairman of a company, you want all of your belongings to look good. In addition to looking good, you will settle for nothing less than the best of the best of performance. Can you really blame HP chairman, Ray Lane, for using a Mac?

I want a Mac sooo bad... have to find a justifiable reason to buy one without my fiancé cracking down. Lol
I can always say," well the chairman of HP has one.." not sure if she will go for it though. Worth a shot

Meh.. Considering HP went through hell recently it doesnt suprise me. Massive layoffs etc. HP does suck tho, it sucks less than dell but still sucks lol. WTB a real comp maker for windows... maybe microsoft lol. But all that aside, considering apple is a hardware company and microsoft is more software company its natural for mac hardware +their own OS to perform better. Microsoft trys to supply too many while apple says do this or get a Windows comp.

Who gives a ****? Just because they work for that company doesn't mean they have to only use their products.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

I was a big fan of HP but I have more HP than anything else in my repair shop, this news doesn't surprise me at all everybody will fall in love with a Mac if they have the chance to use it for a while

if you make an analogy to the head of a car manufacturing company you'll realize that it makes a lot of sens for the HP chairman to use Apple products. If your company produces cheap cars for the working class you're not gonna drive the car that you produce and you will probably own one or more luxury cars. same with computers.. apple its a luxury computer.

I was at Apple retail store SoHo about 2 months ago and there was a 'Genius' at the bar using a DELL., he wasn't even trying to hide it, he had it right on the counter. I absolutely had to grab a pic an post it on my Face Book page. Employees are people too, do you think guys who work for Coca-Cola don't drink Pepsi? or some girl who works at Burger King, never eats at McDonald's?
