    Can't you still get Win7 for free? It's good until next year.

    I was a huge XP fan as well and skipped Vista and moved on to 7. I will never go back to XP. WINDOWS 7 is a very clean OS. You may as well make the switch now because inevitably XP is going to reach End Of Life leaving you stuck with an unsupported OS.

    I tried Mac...it wasn't for me. Granted with Bootcamp or Paralells the Mac is now more appealing until you get shafted on the price for a mediocre machine.

    It is a big deal because people riding apple's **** think there is some huge correlation between the prices. I got Vista business for 50 bucks at school a few years back and home premium would have been cheaper (not sure of exact price though). This is pretty much on par with student pricing of the past. I doubt it has much, if anything to do with snow leopard pricing. I run OSX snow leo and windows 7 and each is a phenomenal OS. Fanboys in the thread... get over yourselves.

    Windows 7 was made free to the public for testing and those of us that have it already can continue using it until next summer. Then every 2 hours your machine will shut down until you buy it. There was no piracy involved.

    One is expensive and hardly lets you do anything, the other costs less and lets you do whatever you want.

    Let's face it; the majority of Mac owners only have one to keep in with the cool kids at college.
    Actually some men end up spending alot more on a prostitute than they spend on their wives. Often in life you really do get what u pay for.

    Only PC owners I know who have the view u have are gamers. I use my computer for other things so personally I could care less about games but if thats what u enjoy spending your time doing then its great thats theres a machine that meets YOUR needs. But realize everyones needs differ.

    I used a PC (Dell) for many years. I disliked my experience with Windows (I was using Windows XP) so I finally decided to buy the cheapest Mac laptop there was and see if Apple was really any different. I bought an iBook G4 for $999.. 4.5 years later I'm still using it with not one issue.

    As far as the "majority" of Mac owners having one just to be "cool" .. I guess that thought process shows your age because most people I know with Macs are not college kids (they are 30 yrs old and up) and could care less about being cool.

    I use both and both have its advantages and disadvantages. As for the student price being $29, I think it's a reasonable price and I will buy one because it is an updrade from Vista. (Although I actually have no problems with Vista on my new computer).

    Lightbulb My epiphany
    I was thinking about getting a MAC since I heard a new WinOS was coming out and (coinsidentally) for some strange reason whenever one does, my PC starts acting up a few weeks later...(you dont think that MS would....noooo!?)
    Anyways after reading all this garbage...I think I'll just build a better mousetrap (PC), get the new OS and go to Disneyworld with the money I saved by NOT buying a MAC....lol
    Also...Why do us people that are already edjumacated get burned on the price?...who do I talk to about that?
    Happy hating everyone....

    I like it too. Now if they would throw in a 3D desktop it would be icing on the cake.
