Three Reasons why Windows 8 laptop edge over MacBook

There is so much tech things involved in gadgets available in the market that it really becomes difficult to choose one over the other.

However, when it comes to choosing between Apple and Window based gadgets, smartphones and laptops, one can draw a fair comparison as two systems work on altogether different OS. 

As reported by Brooke Crothers of C|net, this week Hewlett-Packard offered a few good reasons to consider a Windows 8 laptop over a MacBook given herein under:

Built-in 4G
The EliteBook Revolve offers built-in 4G LTE or HSPA+. Wi-Fi-only MacBooks are getting a bit stodgy. It's almost 2013. 4G should at least be optional on a MacBook.
Let's put it this way, if 4G is an option for the iPad, why not for a tiny 2.4-pound MacBook Air? And if HP is including it in an ultrabook like the Revolve, you can bet there's a reason: some of HP's business customers are demanding it.
And sharing plans make it feasible to share 4G data across multiple devices now.

Touch screen:
Touch is de rigueur for any mobile device now. And two years from now, a portable device without a touch screen will be an anachronism. Like a keyboard without a mouse.
Fact is, HP offered a touch-screen tablet long before the iPad. Unfortunately, it was saddled with Windows XP. And HP (and Microsoft) could never see beyond the stylus as an input medium.
Docking station
The docking stations are a godsend. When you need to pick up and run, it's just a matter of popping the lappy out. No disconnecting and reconnecting cables.
And good docking stations (like those from HP) offer every port under the sun. So by plugging into the dock, you get the range of ports typically found only on desktops.
The dominance of Windows based gadgets over apple is simple: Apple is just one company, pitched against a large number of competitors spread all over the world.
