wichita isnt exactly the-middle-of-freaking-nowhere it is the air capital of the world, in the center of the breadbasket of the world (kansas produces more planes and wheat than any other geograpic area its size, in the world) neways, thats not the point, the point is that if i want to get mac parts i either have to order them or drive to kansas city to buy them (4 hours) that blows

maybe so, but at least the Mac's software doesn't make your computer crash (well it would to a Windows machine)

Ummmmm....not true at all apokalipse.
Take into fact that PCs have much more software available to them than MACs right?
Ok now lets say that 1 piece of software in every 10 pieces finds a "flaw" in PCs that crashes windows (Obviously just a thought). On a divisible scale, just as many flaws exist in MACs as they do in Windows.....There is NO PERFECT SOFTWARE!
MACs have their Pros and Cons just as PCs using Windows.

I've seen MACs crash.....just dont hear about them as often, thats all.

Virus Post:

Thats because programmers are lazy and dont want to develop viruses for OSx. Trust me, I am a developer and I am as lazy as they come! Look at the contrast of users dude.....would it be worth it to programmers? Hells nah!

actually the OS X will not let you even look at the core files of the OS, so nobody can develop viruses for it
