Because looking at what i have been able to gather so far it looks like this can be the best of both worlds.
Ok let me clear this post up a little because it seems that a few people have taken it the wrong way.
The other night i had a discussion with a guy that is VERY pro PC. We both agreed that the future of gaming is console, so the high end market of gaming was pretty much covered. But then there was those games that we both used to love when we went to lans etc.
Such as Need For Speed Underground 2, Quake 3, Counterstrike, Command and Conquer etc etc.
For these "older generation" of games there were not too many ports to the mac OS. And running on emulation mode was a bitch to say the least.
His argument was that was the reason why you needed a PC to lan still, because you just cant game on a mac, never have been able too really.
Now i know this is not true and well quite frankly im not that fussed if you can or cant. The point i was trying to make was maybe now these people cant use that excuse as a reason to not justify a mac anymore.
Maybe they will just have to go back to making uneducated arguments about how there are no other Office Suites on mac OS that are as good as MSOffice or the likes.
EDIT: I also agree that Apple needs to incorporate better graphics cards into its product line and not just the Mac Pro. The 9400 is fine for most things but the 9600 isn't exactly a HUGE jump forward. We need something more in the "pro" laptop class that has some more balls, even if it means removing the DVD drive (nothing wrong with external, means the Blu-ray gang can finally stop bitching that way
) to make some more room for cooling.
