PC's rock, and if anyone has any sense of cable managment, their compys dont look like that.  The reason the mac's dont have as many wires is cause everything about them is expensive and you cant hardly afford the basics, where as with a computer you can get all sorts of goodies and have like a ton of extra cash left over to boot.

I have a MacBook and I like it. Great battery life, smooth consistant performance, stable, and a clean simple look.  I thought the picture was funny. Still, I have to ask why people seem to have a grudge against Apple. They've really made huge leaps since OS X and the switch to Intel. Before that I didn't like Apple either. They had a tacky awful feel to them.

I've no grudge against apple....I just hate fanbois is all -- even if I am in agreeance with said fanboi.

For example: I like ATI more than nVidia in general just mostly because the first gfx card I had was an ATI (when 9800PRO was dominant). When fanbois talk about how "awful nVidia...ATI rocks....nVidia sucks....ATI makes better stuff etc" I tend to try and take away from the ATI fanboi's comments and semi-'defend' nVidia. Why? I don't know specifically -- I love living in the grey areas i guess?

I hate the term fanboy just as much as I hate the term emo for example. Just buy what's best for your money and support the brands/products that serve and have served you well without bashing other brands/products, unless of course you've had consistent problems with them.

Most fanboys are young kids. People who vote with there dollar are much more realistic with the choice layed in front of them.

This sounds about right to me...my $$ normally leads the way.

However when it comes to SAMSUNG displays I tend to go back over and over no matter what else is out there for deals
