yeah, well you get what you pay for... Macbook Pro can easily get up to almost 3K dollars ($2799 for 17in 2.4Ghz)


its just weird that that cant be the same for us PC users, be cool to convert my Windows laptop over to Apple software and have the option to roll back to XP...

the main reason i still have Windows based machines is because of running AutoCAD....from what I understand, Mac's don't like to run it all that great/fast....
I've only worked with one Mac based CAD program. It wasn't all that great ( Being honest ).

Theres a certain niche for everything. For servers, Straight up SPARC's. For a business enviornment or mechanical design/games, any windows based machine. For everything else theres a Mac.

Meh... I've never dealt with any sort of customer service because quite frankly, I just fix all my problems myself. Seems much easier to just build your own PC and take care of it yourself, as long as you have the knowledge.

I mean hell, my computer at home is pushing 4 years old now and it can keep up with my 1 year old work laptop just fine (I know big differences between laptops and desktops but just making a point). To me, its just a matter of maintaining the computer to keep it running well, just like the truck.

I bought a Sony VAIO desktop about 5 years ago, and still have it. 60GB HD, 1.6Ghz P4 processor, etc etc. Nothing has been upgraded. It was the top of the line 5 years ago, and laptop technology is JUST catching the processor speed. I did pay a little more for the HIGHLY regarded name brand (Just like Apple in this case), but I've never had a problem with it that wasn't caused inadvertantly by me (Virus, bad file download, etc).

You get what you pay for.
