*Hand waves. iMac owner. Don't have to make up the fact that I had to buy 'last year's' model a year ago (which makes mine two year old...) That it had a core duo in it when it should have been a quad core. And I didn't buy the 'upgraded' iMac at the time because it was a side grade with a Radeon 4850 in the very top end only with a massive price hike. Or the fact that you have to spend £1500 (about) to get a quad core system with with the same gpu that was on the...
Perfect quote for Apple's desktop line and the 'cutting' edge parts that go in them. Lemon Bon Bon.
Skater has a point. 'Blind loyalty' to Apple because they do 'some' things well doesn't negate criticism of their desktop policy. Which is and has been crrrrrrrrrrrrrap for some time. Nicely designed boxes with underperforming parts. The rest of their hardware in laptops and phones/pads is ok. But their desktop line up is retarded, as are the prices, as are the gpus, as are the vram amounts as are the prices (I said that once, yeah?) You can go to overclockers and get...
His hand waving negates your warped reality. 'Knows nothing' about computers. Eh? Why? Because 'Pompous Man' says so? The overclockers example is one of hundreds of possible (er...choice...something I know nothing about because I know nothing about 'computers'....sacred knowledge that only 'Pompous' Man knows...) examples that blow the Mini out the water on value for money. From the same site. 6 core tower add any gpu that will blow away anything Apple has for less...
While Marv' has a point about the console focus of gaming and the emerging server based gaming ie online services...reducing the need to 'buy' or even have 'ports'... (Well, he's right...here...) ...I can understand Babaloo's point. I don't think you are trolling. (A term used to silence a difference of opinion...how democratic...) I concur with your sentiments (and yes, I own an iMac...) The 4850, a good but old, cheap ass card, isn't offered on anything but a high...
There is an Open GL 4? Didn't know about that. Does the latest shader support in GL 4 give Direct X parity? Comparing the screen quality on Anand tech site showed a slight visual nod to Direct X. Either down to Apple's drivers and/or lack of latest GL support. *thought. Do we have to wait until OS.7 to get Open GL 4? We could be in for a looooooong wait. Lemon Bon Bon.
Yeah. And you can put it in a rig that cost less than half the price of the 'pro'. Lemon Bon Bon.
LOL. Your 'assurances' are like sand.http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=FS-237-OK...here.http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...odid=FS-021-OP...and here! (All but one of the GPU options have 1 gig of Vram on.)Not standard. If they're not, they nearly bloody well are. In PC World you can get rigs with GPUs offering 1 gig of Vram. That's pretty much mainstream.Also, note the 6 core desktop while Apple quietly tout their 'fanny' of an update Mac 'mini.'6 core...

From Overclockers.co.uk £429.99 inc VAT (minus the OS. Pick your flavour...of Windows...) Note the...
"curmudgeon |kərˈməjən| noun a bad-tempered or surly person." *hmmm. 'You're surly!' 'You're bad-tempered.' Hmmm.* I suppose the fancy way of saying it makes it sound better than it actually is. A bit like the price on the 'new' Mac mini. If we price it higher...then it's got to be a better computer, right? *I can just hear Apple marketing now. Lemon Bon Bon.
