    That's why Mac magazines are only 5 pages thick then since they can't do anything else apart from edit a few photos? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    In comparison to windows it is. IMO, you shouldn't adopt a system that software developers consider second when releasing software. The majority of gamers and computer junkies hate mac because of that (compatibility). If Macs where more generic, everyone would probably prefer one to Windows. Gamers are stuck with windows.
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    I am a big fan of both. I have used a PC all my life.....but am using a mac at work. IMO....Mac is more user friendly and organized with the way you can browse files. I also love the look they have. I haven't worked much on a fast mac....the one at work is only a 867 mhz with 512 MB of ram. I am a graphic designer, and handle some huge files....some even getting close to half a gigabyte. It takes me sooooo long to open/save these files! I'm looking forward to buying a fast one for myself.

    Dimka, I have heard that Mac does use consumers to do alot of the testing. I could really use a laptop now though.....I've been getting a fair amount of freelance work, and need to have the portability to take my work with me wherever I need to go. So I guess we'll see.

    Mac does have security updates and patches don't they? Similar to windows updates? Shouldn't these fix any bugs they have?

    I suppose if it is a hardware issue there isn't much they can do about it. I guess we'll see....I might just buy one anyway [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Of course there are updates.
    And unlike windows, the system updates are developed like every 3 weeks or something, and are free to download, along with security and other software updates.
    It is hard to always be a human being... people get in the way.

    An education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.

    Apple is better than PC at everything except for gaming. Until DirectX is beaten by some kind of open source renderer such as OpenGL, the MAC will never be a choice for gaming. Not only that but game companies rarely take the time to port over PC games to MAC. Just not worth the time and money.

    PC's are cheaper to build and have more places to buy parts from. MAC's are MORE expensive (yet powerful) and are pretty much limited to the Apple stores for hardware parts.
