If there was an automotive analogy for windows vs mac it would be
Manual transmission vs automatic transmission
windows =MT
mac = AT

IMO

Then, You're going down Baby
An IBM PC can do everything that a Mac can do (course u have to spend a little),
But a Mac can never do what IBM PCs can do.

I'll part agree to that. I've seen some really good looking PCs (AlienWare, Shuttle, etc etc) But yeah, it is hard to say your wrong.

I have absolutely no idea what your talking about!!!
BTW! I know I am not that big a fan of iDrive

And just curious, can you essemble your own Mac? I mean is it possible to through away things u dont like and put things that u feel are better.. Or is it that, once it gets outdated, Through the whole machine, and buy a new 1 ?
Anyway guys, dont mind us, please keep posting your configs!

How many Mac users does it take to change a light bulb?

Four. One to consult the manual that came with it, one to call tech-support, and two to sit and wait for the 'Smiley Face' to appear and say 'Welcome to Macintosh'.


Sorry, couldnt resist

GTO

P.S. Yes I am a die-hard PC-kinda guy

PS alienware and stuff GRR !! nothing that cud look sexy at home and office both

iLife is this suit of software package with apple, includes photo software etc. very cool lol why dont you try it on some new Mac? and OSX is the operating system... man u cant beat that with windows trying to copy it at all times, You know i got a windows based laptop and believe me the kinda problems i have with it, heck it doesnt even let me disable this intel speedstep agent, i spoke to an IBM techie for an hour and finally he said he'll get BACK to me!!

Secondly there are ways in which you can make a PC os look like MAC os but no mac users bother makin their desktop like a PC i mean pee cee! lol

And yep you can always throw away stuff like video card... hard disc... ram... heck i even threw a G4 Cube 2 years back ! yup and buy a spanking new one after that...

Can you run iDVD? iMovie? Final cut pro 4 ( which im learning still on initial stage cuz i dun have the machine right now ) can you add 8 gigs of Ram? have Pci-Express since year 2003 ?

lol PS i hope none of this gets personal if it does lol im sorry man..

AND GTO



Jus kiddin!

( lol yes the rest of u'll keep posting )

Revv, that was for 'how not to get a heart attack and what to do in the event of one'.
There is a law, something like murphys, which says that computer chips become twice as powerful every 18 months or so at half the size of its predecessor.
Pcs even 5 years back would look like super computers to what NASA had way back in 1960s. Most of us use our pcs for simple tasks than the chips were ever designed for. Whats the need of a P4 when all you are ever going to do is use a little bit of word and excel and surf the net. Not the case of sour grapes. But some things defy logic. Case of the seven deadly sins affecting us when we decide our computer configurations too i guess.

Check out this link. Million other laws like murphys.

No re nothing personal.. Infact I am not anti Mac, basically coz I dont know anything about Mac, so I shouldnt even comment. I have grown up with Windows, and sadly I've seen so many problems, that u cant even believe.. which I heard would never happen with a Mac. AND Still, I am thumbs up for Windows, so you can imagine.. ppl like us will never change to any other system!
And as N4S said whats the point for having big config, if all ur going to do is home/office use. Though me being into Games, I need a high config. But I seriously feel I've never used 2.4 Gig worth of processor speed or 1 gig worth RAM. So I dont see the need of 30GB of RAM!
BTW! It good to know all the info that u've been giving on Mac! Thanks!

And GTO - ... Nice..

Hey guys.
Things are going a little all over the place.
Let's get one fact clear. It's not the point if a Mac is better than a PC.
It's what you need from your comp. One can be comfortable enough when working out reguler jobs
on a PC. Similarly, the same person can face (will face) a speed/process issue when working with graphics packages like Photoshop and such. Worldwide Apple is known for it's ease of use. Especially in the area of graphics. Another point here. They're real tough machines and last really long.
We have three eight years old PowerPC in our office. They're slow but deliver everything without any hicups.
Cheers.

If you've not already ordered one, wait for me to get back.
I can talk to my office suppliers who can give you full support.
