  1. Re: “That’s the problem. People buy apple stuff cause it “looks cool” or “it’s cute”, not because it’s functional or a good value.”
    …but are delightfully surprised to find that Apple products are both functional and an excellent value. 🙂

  2. Notice the windows trolls are the ones afraid to put their name or a connection to them – they just make statements that make no sense and then leave. Shocker.

  3. I am a designer, and I am in the dilemma of getting new laptop. With Mac you’ll get best OS money can buy and you don’t have to worry about viruses..etc. I am the only one who consider getting Mac in my company while 99% are on PC, and all available software are on PC. Surely you can argue that you can also run XP on MacBook Pro but again what’s the point getting mac in the first place ? Why not getting PC and get on with it, surely you wont use iCal and Outlook at the same time. and I hate reboot to switch.
