come on guys.. didnt the mac platform shift to the PC platform when mac jumped into bed with intel with core duo and then again with wintel with bootcamp.
Overall M$ is still smarter here.. PC's can do more stuff than mac. Its nice that macs have a more stable/virus free OS, but compared to windows they have horridly expensive hardware(why the hell use proprietary RAM), limited 3rd party support. In fact I choose ubuntu over OSX anyday..
why dont mac ads show macs running web servers, or playing cool 1080p higher games? well coz very very few macs do that..
Im not a huge vista supporter either, even though it runs on my rig fine, but paying 2-3 even 4x for the same shit is ridiculous.
You are living in the past my friend. Macs use all industry standards parts- hard drives, memory, graphics cards, processors. They do use custom designed mother boards and fan systems (which is why they are so quiet), which supports Apple's corporate interest in unique design and creating attractive form factors.
yes.. they do.. but u missed my point.. I dont wanna buy a pc(disambiguation: mac) in 2009 that has 2008 specs for a 2003 price.
I just picked up a HP HDX lappy for around $1000.. how much does a similarly specd macbook pro go for? $2000+ and thats with a smaller screen and a much more expensive extended warranty and limited 90 day support.
So yea its great macs r quiet. and its great macs have 5 hrs of quoted battery life on the horribly outdated nvidia 9400 GM but since gateway gives me a system for around a $1000 with a 9800GTS with 3 hrs battery life.. ill take that.
Doubt is not a pleasant condition, but certainty is absurd.
