That's wrong. You can post pics w/ a Mac.

G0rman- i think i'm going to print out your posts and distribute them to my non-mac-using friends (whose number is shrinking all the time). You have perfectly summed up just about everything I keep explainging to them, but I wanted to add one more thing

One of the reasons PC computers crash so much is that when you add an application is spreads files all over your hard drive, fragmenting it to pieces - then if you delete the application improperly (or in some cases properly) it'll leave files all over the place. Searching through system files to find each file is nearly impossible.

With Apple almost every application I've seen is just one file. No folders here there and everywhere. (if you click show package contents, you can see where all the extra files are) When you want to delete the program, you delete one file, simple as that. You never risk the possiblity of having files crammed all around your hard drive. And the Mac system files are kept extremely organized and well labeled.

gorman and melon, your posts are most informative

I'm relatively unknowledgable on this sort of thing, so it's very interesting to read.

I'm seriously considering getting an iBook for when I go to University, but what holds me back about it is that i'd probably have to sacrifice alot of applications which I currently use heavily on the PC. This, however, has given me more things to think about.

i love my powerbook

after couple years, still going strong,
perfect for an art major like me
since its very media oriented

so much simpler and less problematic than a PC

no viruses, ever...[not yet at least]

accomodates your personal needs,...you cam customize just about how the entire machine runs

no complains here, whatsoever

I am going to be in the market for a new laptop in the next 6-9 months and I don't need a PC the way I did before because I will no longer be doing the same type of work.

I want something ultra-portable and am willing to pay more for it. What I'm trying to decide is whether I'm better off with a Powerbook (15") or a Toshiba Portege. They are roughly equally priced.

The issue I have with the Mac is that I would need to purchase the software (barring illegalities), whereas things like MS Office, Adobe Photoshop, etc, I already have in Windows format. So I guess my question is, once all the extra costs are figured in with the Powerbook, is it actually worth it?

Macs have a good deal of complexity in them, thanks to their RISC-based PowerPC CPUs. But, really, that advantage will go away next year when they migrate to Intel-based CPUs. In fact, clever PC users have already hacked into and installed beta versions of Intel-compatible Mac OS X on their PCs.

Anyway, potential Mac buyers might want to wait, because those PowerPC computers are eventually going to be expensive paperweights in a few years once Apple goes Intel crazy.

this really isn't part of the discussions, but I heard something about Intel Macs being able to run Mac OS X and Windows XP simultaneously. I think being able to run Windows-Only Applications without slow programs like Virtual PC is something that would get tons of people to switch over.

i think apple has said that their intel machines will allow installation of windows operating systems but that it won't be officially supported by apple. so if you fuck up your computer while messing with XP you'll be up shit creek so to say.

i imagine that the new intel machines will have some sort of hardware security feature as jobs as stated that he isn't interested in having OSX run on any computer other than an apple.

PPC's won't be obsolete overnight as apple has promised support for at least several years to come. they also just released dual core g5's that i can't see them dropping support for in 2007.

Yeah, when was the last time a big mac actually looked like that? They need to add more MSG to that turd.

*this nonsense was typed to you on a dual 867 G4 Powermac*

I'm sorry for bumping my own three-year-old thread, but I am amused by it.

It appears that I was wrong.

I now use a MacBook as my main computer and I couldn't be happier. I guess people CAN change.

Oh you silly boy you.

We use apple software almost exclusively in all my Audio Production and Multimedia courses he at school. Why? Because they're ridiculously intuitive and rarely have problems.
