Christofuhposted a price quote of an $1800 mac that's as powerful as a $1000 Dell laptop with a mag case (search Vostro) =/ well, some love their kiton.. but name brand stuff minus the quality has never been for me.

. Therefore any on-paper similiar specs don't suggest comparable performance. Macs are superior ( to PC ) performers which is what commands the price premium. Discuss
Sorry mate, you can't trust those salesmen. That USED to be true, when Macs have different chipsets than Intels but not anymore. From what I've understood, Macs have had to change alot of their architecture to become compatible with the intel chipset (someone more informed than I can elaborate) and as a result have the design/functions have become closer to PCs than the older Macs.

Looks like it was already covered. (And the one button mouse is really quite silly and is just an example of the stubborness of Apple and how they held off introducing the 2+ button mice for so long; like company like user? not for me to decide) Bouji, look for NEC notebooks
They're hot. Btw, if you're having trouble setting up computer parts/software, google it. I'm not a comp sci students like my friends are but I always seem to figure out any computer problems I encounter in a few minutes with a simple search. Instead of sitting around & whining (like some of my friends) waiting for some help from friends, I actually google stuff. Computers won't often fix themselves. Even the Mac has their "genius bar" (lol). Another thing - keep you PC clean and it won't slow down. Fill up your HD and of course it will slow down

hmm are you saying it would be difficult to convince any mac users of anything without tearing apart their macs..
What's wrong with Windows Search function? It's always worked for me perfectly. If you're looking for something, search the name; how hard can it be? I mean, if you don't know what you're looking for I don't see how you can complain the search doesn't work.
