It's like people going, buy a Android, it gives you unlimited customization. You can do this and that. What ever you want.......Sounds great, but you're still using android. Same with PC. Why in the world would you want a PC. I guess the real question is why would you not want a Mac. ????
Granted BHP. You live in the US.Although Mac is doing well here, PC reigns supreme. You know that...
Windows still has the stronghold here on major businesses. I have to use windows because my POS system is written for it. I have a Dell that cost me $1600 USD that gets used as a machine to jump into from my Mac via RDP. If you use a Mac for any legth of time it is almost painful to go back to windows. And while Windows does reign supreme it will continue to play second fidel to OSX in the small business and for the home market that wish to have something above the ordinary, sonething that makes sense. If anyone here has a argument that windows is better I would love to here it, but, I doubt that's the case. Windows has been and always will be the follower with cheap devices from manufactures that wish to push out machine after machine with the eye in profit from new purchases. Dell,Samsung,HP, Sony, all strive to achieve what Apple has achieved and will use Follow Apples lead to soak up the "wish I could have a Mac" crowd.
As Cat has stated, Apple once again pioneering the way for the next market. It's been like this for quite some time now. Longer than the iPod.
I was afraid i'd get an air, find things that it couldn't handle and wish i'd got a macbook pro.Absolutely love my MB pro.I've got a 13"(the perfect size for me). I got the cheapest one but i'm thinking about upgrading the RAM. Have you done any modding to yours?
I've been holding off waiting for the new MBP redesign thinking the Air form factor would be great. I hope I don't have to wait much longer. My current MBP is an early 09 model. It has not missed a beat but I would like to dump the DVD drive and have a faster processor along with some other new things like THUNDERBOLT!
