          PCs tend to break down often.... WHAT. I've seen both go wonky.

          At least when my computer has something haywire, i can just replace the part. When the Mac desktops go on the fritz, you have to send the entire unit in.

              That extra 600$ and you'd still get out cheaper than buying a Mac.

                This reminds me of when fox news did a broadcast on mass effect and called it porn.

                  My mac is still the best tool for a lot of jobs, but yeah, that's pretty fail. I had to spend a lot more than $600 to get my mac to do the jobs I need it to.

                    hmm, lets interview a "mac guy" on the subject of Mac vs PC. I wonder how this will go, lol.

                    I thought a Macbook pro started at ~2 grand or so.

                        Macs are awesome. I love them, they do what they meant to do well. But I love my PC more because not only does the OS work for me, I can customize what I want.

                        Viruses? Well more people use PCs meaning that it's more effective to have a virus that targets PCs.

                        Load of crap.

                          All Apple products are overpriced and not worth the money in my opinion!

                          And if a Mac is not a "(P)ersonal (C)omputer" then what the hell is it?

                          Try upgrading your mac or ibook with new hardware and see how far you get.

                            Now I am all about a MAC book, but damn this one is wayyyy off. I got one (17") for work and that bad boy cost over $2700. If it was not for work paying for it, there is not way in hell I would have messed with it. That is a whole lot of money for a laptop that is not all that great. I own several laptops (Windows based), all costing under $1000 and they all perform just as well. On top of that, all the laptops I own came bundled with a ton of free software which makes this argument a mute point. And the actual hardware is very competitive.

                            Now you can look at some of the AlienWare and Dells that are designed for gaming, yet have similar if not better components. All for normally half the cost of the MacBook.


                            What really kills me is the bogus costs they did include, GeekSquad and Music Software? What the hell is that? Not only is Itunes not worth it, but they should be paying me for screwing up all my music!!!

                            This is just a case of horrible reporting by a person who is not educated in computers. Hopefully they will drum up some business for Apple, maybe the result will be cheaper MacBooks.....:row__690:

                              I've pretty much lost all hope in all "news" reports as of late, they know less than Wikipedia and their facts are about 100x more fubar'd (than the worst pages on wiki, since a lot of wiki is getting better).

                              I've actually seems macs break down mechanically more than PCs, my dad has had 2 of them. Both were iMacs and both have suffered from overheating or actual burning typically in the wire connections. Macs are assembled very poorly and always use the cheaper components.

                              It's been proved Apple overprices their products and fairly heavily too. http://www.fudzilla.com/index.php?op...3156&Itemid=38
