Total cost of my iMac- $1,700, to see if the rumors about it being better with graphics was true.
I wish I had my $1,700 and built myself a kick *** PC setup. Anyone wanna but an iMac?iPhone 4- I'll start theming again

Who would have thought that this thread would have turned into a PC vs. Mac thread?!
I do find it surprising to find so many Mac haters on an Apple/Mac/iPhone forum.

^They aren't really hating. The Mac users bashed Windows after (since) the first post, and someone can use a Mac/iPhone/iPod and still like Windows. I just think it was fair to bash MS for their price point/OS. Remember Mac is still a PC: it can run Windows.

Lets just close the thread now! Obviously nothing good is going to come of this biased author. He should be jailed for inciting a riot.

Yeah I like and use everything. I have PCs, a Mac an iPhone and an XBOX. I think my iPhone and XBOX would be the 2 things I run into a burning house to rescue. After my family of course!

Macs = security through obscurity. Snow Leopard is the first Mac OS that is trying to be secure. And I love how Mac Heads say that viruses just don't exist on Macs...then why the hell is an AntiVirus INCLUDED in Snow Leopard? If I was going to write viruses, I sure wouldn't target Macs, I'd want more bang for the buck.
I built me a Core2Duo vanilla "hackintosh" with 4GB of RAM and an 8800GT (QE and CL support) for CHEAP. I hate to call it a hackintosh because I it's got an unpatched kernel, it's completely retail. I did this because I wanted to see what the buzz about Macs was all about. I honestly don't see it. What can you do in a Mac that you can't do in a Windows machine? My wife is all pissed because I spent money and time on building it and I never use it!
Macs are like the AOL of the internet. They try to bundle everything together for the stupid computer users. If you really know what you're doing you don't get a Mac (well I guess you do if you want inferior hardware and pay a ton for it because it LOOKS COOL!).
And for those that rag on Windows 7, I bet most of them have never used it. Even the RC version was rock solid. And I love how the author of this post is so unbelievably cocky that he thinks Microsoft is doing this just because of Snow Leopard. MICROSOFT DOES THIS FOR ALL OPERATING SYSTEMS. They give discounts to students! It's something they've always done. Let me guess, them selling Office to students is also a response to Mac? Give me a break.

I do agree with you about "Macs = security through obscurity". But I am not sure what you mean by "If you really know what you're doing you don't get a Mac". What complex things are you doing that requires so much knowledge?

hey i think its good they make it cheap, cuz now apple has a little bit of competition; and they will both possibly get cheaper later in the future, also cuz i don't have a mac lol , i plan on getting one but not quite just yet, as i dont have 3k to use on a computer. I'll be cheap for now and go with a pc and save a few thousand.damn drug dealers, and there jailbroken iPhones... ____ Hit the thanks if you think i suck

There needs to be discounts for highschoolersI always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

EDIT: Also, I want to make clear that I got my Macbook Pro as a gift for college without my knowledge. I did ask for a Mac.
