Thought about getting the new Vista. Turns out it has major issues with Divx, Quicktime, VLC and Gawd knows what other freeware progs. Above and beyond its 150-plus documented warts discovered so far. Vista requires quite a bit of memory, so figure 2GB of RAM just for that. Now I have a fair # of peripherals I'm gonna need to hook up. No idea whether : a) combined they won't suck the life outta the ram; b) be recognized by the new OS to begin with. Over in the MAC land they've got this new all-in-one iMac thing. Something tells me, however, that if any one major component were to take a shi'ite it'd drag down everything with it. Their towers start @ $2500 which isn't what I'm looking to drop; particularly for the kind of goods they're throwing in. The new Leopard OS is sheduled for 10-07 release. Trouble is, I don't have a clue if my peripherals will work with it. On top of that, despite having this seemingly wall-to-wall China-assembled product, Apple doesn't seem too anxious to pass along the savings ))))) So what the fick should I buy ?
