This is the 2nd The Big Bang Theory clip I've posted here today.
This conversation is well beyond my ken.
I hadn't considered that side of it but I think that's a good analogy. Buying a band T-shirt at $30 always seemed ridiculous. They want you pay an inflated price to advertise for them but their loyal members are happy to do it because they identify with them in some way. I don't go so far as to obfuscate the Apple logo on my MBP like on a TV show but I am not going to put one of their stickers on my car.Is that loyalty — which I see as at least a semi-bond commitment — or...
They can foolishly listen to their customers instead of doing what is good for them. I mean actually doing what their customers say, not just saying that they do that; kind of like the Homer Car.
Let's find a better word: How about brand likalists?
I see so much wrong with that design.

Now factor in the average Mac user's average hourly wage and then figure out how much time it would take them to do the same as you (since you clearly do this often) and you might find even when dealing a server the time simply don't work out for the average consumer in terms...
1) Sure, but you're not talking about a general purpose computer which is what @asdasd seems to be referring to when asshats say "Oh, I build my own computers." These guys aren't likely building notebooks which are the primary machines sold to customers.2a) I've built some very tough Hackintoshs but at the same time I'd never consider one for server use. For that I would go with *nix or Windows, depending on the usage need.2b) Right now I do have OS X Server running on one...
