So you think people who buy Apple's wares are stupid, you have nothing but contempt for anyone who thinks otherwise, yet here you are, posting angrily on an Apple enthusiast site.
I would urge you to figure out what you like, even love, and think about that. Talk to people who share your interests. It's really a better way to live. Goodbye.
Umm, who's the one that started the argument that people don't read specs, I do believe that was you. You are the one who started with the insulting comments, I was simply trying to carry on a lively debate to your point that people should just be happy with whatever Apple throws out there.
I've happily bought Macs over the years including an Apple iBook, Mac Mini, and a black Macbook most recently. I buy Apple when they make sense, and when their products are competitive to the rest of the personal computer market. I haven't bought anything from them for awhile because their incremental upgrades over the last 4 years are not worth the upgrade price. When they decide to offer something truly revolutionary again, then I will buy in again. I did just buy Snow Leopard recently, and so far its better than Leopard, but I still am getting a lot of application crashes with Adobe CS4 applications. So Apple isn't the king $hit. So far CS4 has been a lot more stable on Windows 7. That it just my experience, but that is comparing the results of two clean installs, so Apple has some catching up to do. In my opinion, OS X 10.4 was their best and most stable operating system to date and it is what we run on our PowerMac G5s at work. I have maybe one support call a week with those machines and usually it's software and not hardware related.
Just because you want to play Apple fanboy and I take a more moderate view of Apple based on their merits, doesn't make me any less pro-Apple or make me an angry poster.
