    Apple is a fake company

    i was considering buying an Apple because of the reputation of being 'the computer man's computer' but i had 2 Apple programs run on my Windows computer, Itunes/Ipod ...and something else...and i had nothing but freaking problems with both of them

    (FYI i only used Itunes to get my Ipod running, then i went back to music theifing)

    i thought "you know what? this is some amateur BS going on here"

    after Steve Jobs died i watched the biography of Apple and i figured the whole thing out.
    Bill Gates couldn't , by U.S. law, monopoloize the computer biz, so they set up Steve Jobs, who was nothing more than the schmo who was at the right place at the right time, with Apple as the opposition to Microsoft,

    this why, when Apple went under, Bill gates was the one who bailed out the company.

    The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....

    Apple is too expensive for me.

    Im happy with microsoft products and dell computers.....

    I wouldnt buy dell for a long time because of the dell kid...... that fool just creeped me out too much..... but after he was gone I bought a used dell....then a new dell....then more used and new dells....

    Of course Im posting this from my fujitsu.... but there is a dell beside me on the floor and a dell on the couch.....and there is a dell in a drawer about 10 feet away....and dells thorughout the house....

    My old busted dell is in the house too.....on my workbench with the screen propped up against a desk lamp because the hinges are broke........ but it still works fine......even though windows crashed on it a few years ago and I had to put ubuntu on it.....

    But its still kicking......

    You dont need an apple wolfstrike...... nothing exciting about them unless you are just a fan of apple computers. They seem more of a status symbol computer to me.....

    I own both, an ipad and two pcs, all Dells. In fact, I'm typing this post on my trusty Latitude D620, which I purchased back in 06. Still do control work with it to this day. Great notebook....just keeps on a chugin'.

    Both have their advantages and disadvantages. However, all in all, pc is still king. In the long wrong, Microsoft will come out on top. They always do.

    I have the Mac Book Pro. The one just before the model you posted. I love it. Aluminum construction is nice.

    Had another Mac Book I bought probably 6 years ago. My girlfriend has it now. I Like my apple products.
    Gotta have the right tool for the job!

    The newest Samsung and Vizio models (yes, Vizio) are really impressive looking but pricey.

    Screw Apple. They design their products assuming that you are an idiot. Also, a high end Mac costs at least 50% more than a PC with the same or better parts.
