They are expensive, but powerful as hell, especially for multi-tasking. And MAC OS is so kick ***. But they teamed up w/ Intel now, sad world

OK, I have a theory. Here goes.

One of the reasons many people hate Macs is because they see the cheap, not well maintained ones that their school district has, and they generalize by saying that all Macs are pieces. But when they see an old PC, for some reason, they know PCs have come a long way because they can go home and get on their leet Dell with integrated graphics.

Propaganda is more influential than we realize.

yes i totally agree. With only 256mb it would seem like i have 512mb in this system all considering. (my powerbook).

but yes, i also agree per $1 you spend on them, when compaied even to intel, they are expensive. Ipods are slightly over rated, but they realy are retty good. I got mine from free ipods so i cant complain.

my powerbook is great. its small, light and has good battery life. and considering its size, it proforms quite well. I REALLY WISH MAC WOULD HAVE CHOSEN AMD THOUGH!!

Its also really stupid that one of the main arguements against macs is that they dont have a multi button mouse. first of all to right click, you can hold down ctrl and click on a mac. or you could hook up any mouse with more the one button/scroll/sidescroll and you can get all the buttons to work the way you want them to. Since when have you keept the mouse that came with any computer you bought anyway?
