Just for fun... Yes, the price difference IS there. Especially if you are a fool and let Apple do the easy upgrades for you... or insist on THEIR monitors for that matter. And I agree that it is stupid, but this comes into play when the OS and machine are made by the same company. It isn't like installing Windows onto a Dell or a self built system. I have a slightly older Apple tower that still runs like a champ, the Win7 box and a bit of Linux experience.. so I feel like I am allowed to laugh at this - because the numbers are off a bit even with worst case scenario. Check the Apple store if you don't believe me.
I wouldn't walk across the street to buy a Mac .. especially after I spent 3 years working on the stupid things for the school system. They finally got rid of every Mac they had and went strictly to PC's. The laptops I worked on , you had to remove around 50 screws and take the machine down to it's chassis just to change a hard drive ... took 3 hours .. on a pc ... i could change a drive in less than a minute ... 3 screws and pull it out .. slide it in ..3 screws .. done .
Bryan Grogan Sure......even though Joel has 4 Different College Degrees in computers and Electronics, and over 20 years Work Experience with Electronics, Computers, Computer Hardware, Computer Programming, Computer Security, and System Networking...
...Yeah, like a retard-??- You're the Retard.
Jason R Hafelein No, its people who refuse to bow down before the iGods and worship the almighty Fruit Computer that are retards!! I know this for a FACT because a hipster TOLD me that Apple prodcts are superior to everything else, including GOD himself. I I KNOW this to BE a FACT because apple hipsters KNOW EVERTZHINGZ and their knowledge is INFALLABLE!!!!
Richard York Seely II Yes, I do, you do realize when you told me linux I said that there was no issue, I was confused because I tend to associate PCs with windows being a butthurt casual computer user.
I don't doubt that all that iCrap is valuable in some way-- but being more expensive at almost Every angle compared to World (PC) Compatible devices-- Why? Why do these iTards demand and Dictate that their expensive iToys are so iMpressive?... they are not better, to say the least.
funny brian to bad I'm writing this on a laptop thats 14 years old and doing fine. and I actually have it dual booted with bsd which is what osx is built upon for free so with the $2000 in my pocket I guess Im wrong.
