Well, why didin't you say that in the first place?
I am certain Apple will send you a "thank you" card for supporting their 30-60% gross margins.
Actually, they didn't. But they were incredibly nice to me the one time I had to call tech support.
I have a win2k box to my right and my Mac to my left and they pretty much get equal use. It started out being 70/30 in favor of my PC (the Mac was strictly for editing), but over the past 10 months I've found myself using the Mac more and more (just ripped all my CDs w/iTunes in preperation of getting an iPod), but now I'm starting to rant.
If you weren't trying to flame I apologize for accusing you of it. But just as a side note this:
1GHz PowerPC G4 1MB L3 cache 1 GHz? You gotta be kidding me, right?
256MB DDR266 SDRAM a WHOLE 256MB...whew!
60GB Ultra ATA/100 WOW, ATA 100...cutting edge
Combo drive Well, this makes up for EVERYTHING...NOT!
NVIDIA GeForce4 MX Sweeet, I can finally run the ORIGINAL Doom
64MB DDR video memory See above
FireWire 800 Ok, this is actually nice
56K internal modem Yawn
Bluetooth Ready Nice. It's Bluetooth READY...Only cost me my other arm to make it work
This is about +/- $500 in PC parts IF you could even still find a 1Ghz CPU.
What a JOKE!
Yawn.... Computer in my Sig cost about the same as this piece of Cr@p.
1. an MX video card...jeez, can't wait to fire up any game made this decade and watch it crawl along!
2. 256 MB of SLOW ram...I guess for $1,400 we couldn't expect at LEAST 512MB of their crappy memory!
3. a whole 60GB ATA 100 HDD (did I miss the dynamic shift where HDD's are all of the sudden EXPENSIVE?)
C'mon! What's the justification of that price for this junk?
then please continue to purchase overpriced / overhyped / outdated technology and chide the rest of us for not "getting" it.
Me, I'll stick with what I got and leave the pretty colored baubles to the Apple fanboys.
(keep shining those rose colored glasses...or is it "berry"?)
Migth be construde as flame bait. Although the last one is pretty witty.
