Because, it's Mac. The virus thing I guess is true.. Doesn't matter tho, any good PC owner wont have problems. I've owned a PC all my life, never once. Have I had a spyware/trojan problem.
On top of that, I see no point in them. Indeed they do look good, the interface is polished nicely, and they run good. But.. There.. So boring.
If a macbook, get a pro but purchase any extra RAM from a 3rd party (WAY CHEAPER).
OR, you could go to buyxg.com, they have great computers at cheap prices. I haven't bought one yet, but it looks neat.
I agree with Drak... omg why the hell get a mac??? They are overpriced, and with the same money you could buy a much more powerful laptop running vista and everything. But this is my opinion... i suppose if you want to use it for music recording or movie editing or anything involving multimedia design, its good cause Macs come with a ton of software. But other than that. NO.
Why hasnt anybody mentioned linux?
You should all be ashamed
But yeah i would definatly use Xp/Linux I dont care what your using your comptuer for. Everything that u can do on mac you can do the same (if not better on windows) but you cant say the same for mac. I would not be as worried about vista because imo its a waste and only slows you down. If you want dx10 they already have a patch for xp that works. (I actually get better fps in xp with dx10)
After buying a notebook pc with xp/vista i would download and install linux... the distro of choice is Ubuntu (for begginers)
btw you can run more than one OS
I am currently running
