There's nothing wrong with their tests, the MacBook Pro just happens to have better components than any of the other laptops they tested.

I don't really get all the hatred for Macs, I don't own one, but I use them fairly frequently, they're just PCs, except with the ability to run Mac OS instead of the ability to customize or upgrade hardware.

Except the Acer CPU is 400 MHz slower, and the screen is only 1280x800 instead of 1920x1200. Apple laptops are generally competitive with other brands pricewise.
