Aesthetics are the reason a lot of people buy anything - look at cars or houses, if something is ugly as sin it's not exactly going to be a hot seller. I also know 7 people who bought Asus ROG Notebooks not because they game, but because they looked cool. One of the reasons I bought my MacBook Pro became evident yesterday - I was playing around in XCode, had quicktime running for several TV Episodes back to back, the usual web browsing as well as background applications for social networking junk - after 6 hours my battery finally informed me it wanted to be charged. Far cry from Rob's G51JX which drops dead after 3 hours with only casual web browsing usage.
