"Picking equipment of the highest specification" is meaningless twaddle. Big numbers don't make it quality product. Consumer laptops have higher specification than business product, when you look at the raw numbers. They also have worse warranty, lower battery life and a lower build quality. When I drop a laptop, I don't want to have to put in an insurance claim, I want to go "whoops", pick it up and keep working. In addition, MS is awfully keen on system builders, 'cos they get a lot more dosh per licence. (:-)
