It seems to boil down to form over function, as best as I can tell.
The computer industry has changed so much in the last five years that
price has become the single most important thing to optimize for. Such
things as quality are a distinct second. Thus, a computer like a TP
which doesn't live up to its counterparts in terms of speed and price
is going to be seen as inferior. Sad, but true.
