1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    feel free to disagree but my IT vendor would disagree with you. I have my pro, my retina and my air in the shop as we speak.

    My experience has been close to Kunk's. That said, so long as Apple holds the hardware design edge (light weight, screens, design, etc.) I'll still probably end up choosing them.

    weird. I haven't had any troubles, nor have my family (probably 10+ Macs between all of us over the years). The worst I had was my original Macbook's battery died after about 3.5 years of use. And it slowly but eventually bit the dust after I spilled wine all over the keyboard.



    I imagine Kunk's faulty retina fall under warranty, which is nice.

    My tally - had to replace my iP4s 3 times. My MBA once. One iMac had to be lemon law'ed. Another's been back once. Already had to exchange my iP5. Had a Macbook (old white model) that had to be repaired 4 times.

    What Windows 8 product? There is obviously a wide variety of machines from any number of companies to choose from. They very greatly in terms of quality. Do you have one in mind? I find Apple's Laptops are some of the best out there, but there certainly are contenders running Windows worth checking out.

    EDIT: FWIW, I had a couple small problems with my Macbook over the years but Apple's tech people have been good to me. Once exchanged a battery, well out of warranty, for free. It's experiences like that which keep me loyal.

    FYI guys, FRY's is selling old model of the iMac at clearance prices. $1000 for the 27 inch and $400 for the 20 inch. Amazing steals. If I wasn't still tight from the expenses of my move, I would snatch up one the 27 inch models.
