I have my ups and downs. today is a good day. I have a fire going in my bedroom so it's nice and warm, using my snoring dog as a pillow and just surfing. Decided to check out Appleinsider to see if anything is new. Same o'l, same o'l, Samsung bashing, nothing is better than an iPad, Apple is our lord and savior in a sea of evil companies trying to copy what they have achieved.
Some things never change. Good to read you're better than before.
Yes I have, from day one. A 1.6GHz single CPU, The first G5. A couple of later models, now on a mid 2010 MP.
I think if you're looking at bare specs a DIY is a cheaper option, or at least I would expect so. But usually difficult to compare. With Apple you also pay for the OS and such.
Do I understand you correctly that Apple offers their GPU cheaper than others? I take it you're referring to the D300/500/700 in their latest model. Which would be difficult to compare as well as they only bought the bare chip, not a full card.
A lot of assumptions on my part here, sorry about that.
