So, now it's on to the laptops. Without getting too repetitive, it's the same story there as well, with the Series 3, 5, 7, and 9. They are categorized in many different dimensions, from CPU, to Operating System, weight, storage, graphics. Some are recommended for gaming, some for business, some for...oh, I forgot where I was. Ok, got my bearings now, I think I saw something like 30 models, but I can't for the life of me figure out which one is which. I'm overloaded. Then there's the Chrome, which really isn't in the same class as a traditional laptop running Windows or Mac OS, because it can't run anything mainstream other than a Google browser. Oh, and it looks just like a MacBook Air, except that it's made out of cheap plastic and about twice as heavy.
So, this is why Apple will eventually win over Samsung; clean, clear product lines that support one another and have an ecosystem that supports the products. Samsung is fragmented and confusing. Sure, they have some neat products, but it takes more than that for the type of longevity for which Apple products are positioned. -- Written by Ernie Varitimos, author of the Apple Investor blog.
