But if your fun is rebooting computer and opening/closing apps, then, well...

Funny you should say that because Windows users are commonly referred to as "reboot monkeys". I don't know how much you know about OSes, software and development, but I think even you might have noticed that PC of yours getting slower within 6 months of regular use, because of registry pollution, applications (even after uninstall leaving stuff around), disk fragmentation, rogue applications (even from Microsoft themselves) messing with your system and behaving like they own your computer rather than you etc.

This is all part of user experience, not just OS installation and initial benchmark. Any UNIX based OS is much much more resilient to user actually using it, and none of them is more polished than OS X.

Thing is, it's not building. It's assembling a few parts together. It's easy to 'assemble' a PC these days because the parts are so few. It's not like it's a house or car. It takes 10-15 minutes. I recently bought an Ikea TV stand for my flat screen here in Japan. The thing came with glue, wooden bolts [I forget the name of those things] and screws, alan key and I needed my own rubber frikkin' hammer. It took THREE HOURS to assemble. Ikea shit is a lot more troublesome to assemble than a PC.

Why do people always talk about Windows market share anyway when talking about Mac vs. PC? It doesn't mean anything other than there are a lot of people who won't pay more than $500 for a computer and those same people don't mind installing other crap to protect their PCs. Not to mention that market share was largely created by Asia years ago. That's like 30% of the world's population. Back in the day Macs didn't even exist in Asia so that pro-rated share means jack. Like I said in my previous post McDonalds burgers are the worst food you could pay for yet...80 billion sold. I'll take a gourmet burger over McDonalds any time even though it will be three times the price.

It's actually easy to "build" your own kit car and people do it every day. How many people build their own Lexus SC lol Ain't gonna work. You can't even get the parts on volume. While you pay a premium for the Lexus and maybe even a little too much sometimes, it's worth every penny when your driving down the PCH with the sun in your face.

If you could ask Gene Roddenberry what his idea of future tech was he'd say a Mac/iPod Touch not Windows 7 / Zune. Cringe.

I have no reason to own a Winblows machine so there's no reason for me to visit Winblows or MS forums. But there sure a lot of Winblows and MS users on AI. I guess PC users like to dream Macs.

if you configure a dell with the same specs as the new imacs then the price is the same or Apple is cheaper. And Dell's LCD's don't seem to be LED ones. Apple just doesn't have any computer worth buying under $1199.

It's just a question of do you want to spend $1199 or $1499 on a computer? I don't have any preference of Windows 7 or OS X, but if the price is the same i will most likely choose Apple over Dell or HP any day. if I buy a MBP, at least the battery is warrantied for the same time as the computer. I bought a Dell Inspiron 5 or 6 years ago which still works great even with Vista and Windows 7 and I bought a 3 year warranty for it. i tried to get a new battery and Dell said that it's only covered for a year even though the rest of the computer is for 3 years. I spent $1500 on that laptop because Dell was having a huge sale at the time with a $750 off coupon and I upgraded almost everything.

I just got a cheapo 23" LCD at work, and i might just stop by the Apple store today to see what the LED LCD's look like

Really like the new ads !
After watching the ads the aspect that remained with me was
1 Customer Satisfaction
2 Windows 7 is more of the same from MS

I have never used a Mac for more the 5 minutes in the store but do plan on buying one in 2010. The user experience I had with the Macbook Pro far exceeded my expectations.
Something that no MS OS has ever done.

I have used Windows 7 and it reminds me to much of Vista.

Current Hardware Lineup:
Dell XPS Vista - Gaming PC for DDO / WOW
Home Build PC XP Pro
HP Laptop from work XP that will be upgraded to 7 next year from what IT is telling me.

Competition is good, but some of you really need to calm down and realize that not everyone wants to use a PC / MAC and neither is a wrong choice depending on what you need it for.
I will buy a Macbook pro because i want a laptop to do light gaming in a small form.
There are Windows Laptops that will do that , however they are only a little bit cheaper then the macbook pro , and sometimes more costly.

2010 MacBook Pro 13, 2.66
Dell XPS 420 - Gaming PC

These are about as far as you can get with stretching the truth. If the public believes them, it could help a lot. However, if they find Win7 to be a big improvement (as most who have actually tried it have), then Apple stands to loose a lot of credibility.

Now who is to blame SONY or MS, great example why I bought a Mac, not because of the failure, but because at least if the OS fails I can shout at ONE person.

At least it was not the "blue screen" brand image that MS uses all the time

Exactly. It doesn't matter if it is the screen's fault. It is still part of the PC experience. And if someone were to lug this thing into a Microsoft store and ask a Guru to help them out, what do you think would happen?

No, I think Schiller is exactly right
- the best way for Apple to treat the Windows 7 launch is to treat it as an opertunity
- it will create 'churn'
- people who have been holding back waiting for Win7 could also now look at the Mac as an alternative
- so Apple is just treating every new PC buyer as a potential Mac buyer

- coming after their best Q yet for Mac sales, and just after launchg the new Macs, I think it makes perfect sense...

I agree. Just judging from the reports and reviews so far, Win 7 appears to be a good product. To rag on about how crap it is might backfire. I wish Apple would drop the present I'm a Mac format and update the tone, content and style. A little more positive, please. Maybe forget about PC for a while and focus on the switchers and Mac. By all means keep the characters and keep it abstract but so far Justin Long has just been standing there. Maybe time to make him more proactive.

Let us hear some great examples of how Apple has been biting other people's ideas? Could you start by pointing me to where Apple borrowed the iMac idea from? Explain where it borrowed the idea of convection cooling used in a computers.

Also keep in mind there is a difference between borrowing another companies ideas and reworking them to make them exceptionally better [what Apple with the iPod], and simply copying ideas without doing any real innovation [what Microsoft did with the Zune].

Take Microsoft's new retail store. It is an exact copy of Apple's store.

Where is this innovation you speak of? Last time Apple innovated was when they made the worlds first GUI, other than that they've been biting other peoples ideas just like MS has, so this is a weak argument...unless your being sarcastic then the last time they innovated was when they introduced this awesome element of Snow Leopard that deletes your info if someone logs into your guest account...no ones done that before, how innovate truly

Apple has been putting out anti-MS ads since early 2006, taking the opportunity to trash whatever MS attempted. Did it with Vista, too.

And judging by their results, it's pretty good for "scared." May Apple continue to be "scared."

Was ever an anti-Vista, anti- XP ad released less than 24 hours after their initial release? NO.
HHmmmmm- Sounds pretty scared to me.

The one main advantage to building your own is it makes it really easy to upgrade whenever you want. Also if your using good quality parts (unlike most Tier 1) systems you know you have a good chance of your system lasting a long time with limited problems.

With a Dell casing, especially slimmer ones available nowadays, is actually not that easy to upgrade parts, plus you'd usually have to change the power supply as well for a more powerful GPU. Trying to figure out CPU upgrades may be a bit tricky as well. The latest branded PC desktops are not as easy to upgrade sometimes. Correct me if some of you have experienced otherwise.

Then if you talk about all-in-one PCs, upgradeability goes out the window as well.

Well anyways I'm GPU obsessed because nowadays I just use my PC for gaming. I like the components and my PC setup, 21.5" Samsung screen, etc. Just the case. I chose the *absolutely least ugly* case as much as I could. The DIY market has terrible, absolutely terrible, case designs.

I posted about this at length for quite a while back. There just hasn't been any middle ground between ugly towers and upgradeable, slim, powerful machines. Nvidia's good GPUs, are MASSIVE. Look at the GTX260 and 280 etc. And their next generation, the supposed Fermi, is more designed for large power-hungry workstation setups than anything close to consumer let alone mobile. ATI has tried to address issues at least in terms of performance-per-watt with their 5870, 5850, 5770, 5750 series. But again, a sleek, customisable, interchangeable PC system has never come about in the past 20 years of personal computing that I've been involved in.

The DIY market needs a shakeup in terms of some real innovation, going back to sleek microATX setups maybe. But maybe sometimes the DIY market wants to see big towers and lots of glowing stuff and huge CPU fans for overclocking and 2 to 4 GPUs in there. So that works against a customisable, sleek and efficient ecosystem.

Not true. The 27" imac screen can be used as a display for another device by simply using the imac 27" display as one of your output devices by utilizing the mini diasplay port input bypassing the imacs processor. In 3 years when you have another processor that you want to use substitute for the imac guts, the display is clearly salvageable.

Plus most mac's generally have a longer useful life than 3 years.

But blatantly ripping off Apple at every turn because your profits are nosediving, your company is in a steady decline, and you're totally out of ideas, is an altogether different story.

Replacing the motherboard is usually a complete non-starter. PC manufacturers tend to fuse all of the motherboard connectors (Power On, HDD LED, etc.) into one cable and the cable isn't usually compatible with other motherboards.

I own a PC for gaming. It's my only option since even Mac Pros don't have the best graphic card options, despite costing triple the price of the PC. However, most branded PCs are about as much use as a Mac for gaming. The only sensible option is to build your own.
