They don't need to make it thinner, they need to make it BETTER - with a non-glossy screen and a real keyboard as well. Until that happens I won't be getting a new Mac. Ever.
I shouldn't have focused on 64bit, but instead the other features such as Grand Central etc.
The point being, why upgrade to a product that will likely be updated next year with a version that takes advantage of the new SL features.
Well I installed it on my iMac yesterday - upgraded from Tiger. I have to say that despite the numerous and annoying interface inconsistencies, I kinda like it. One thing that Win7 does better though is you can visually tell an application has minimized windows because the app icon changes to show 'depth' behind it - in SL the only way to tell you have minimized icons is via Expose. I held off upgrading iLife to '09 however and will wait until likely iLife '10...
Too bad it doesn't address the half dozen different interface styles all mixed together in a hodge podge that seems to increase with each new release.
I think I have McAfee installed on one of my Color Classics running OS 7.6.1. Seriously though, try surfing the web from an old OS - I surf pr0n sites all the time on my NeXTCube
"Hi, I'm a young, hip, modern woman looking for a laptop for under $100. I'd like to have a Mac but I'm just not special enough for them. Hey look, I found this one on the bottom shelf at my local Walmart, the manual is in Chinese, but it's exactly what I'm looking for. Congratulations! It's a PC!"
For God sakes! Get the Beatles catalog on iTunes already!!!
What? No mention that OS X now sports at least elements of SIX different interfaces all jumbled together?
The reason they aren't any viruses for Macs is the hax0rs all own Macs and actually like them. That said it wouldn't take much to make a crippling virus targetting OS X - especially when they are the FIRST systems routinely cracked during the well publicized hacking contests.
