  • If you add up the two flavors of Macs, they come within about half a percentage point of Windoze Vista! This is not only good for the Mac, but VERY bad for M$, because it means that people are actively AVOIDING Vista (many more than 7% of all comput…
  • One thing that the Mac Pro has in its favor for some of these applications (where it's really too much, but no other Mac is enough) is that it is silent. I hadn't realized HOW quiet it is until last week, because I had only used them in rooms with o…
  • There is a group of professionals who don't need a dual Xeon workstation, and would prefer not to pay for it if we didn't have to. I do a couple of things that put me in this category - I am a landscape photographer, professional naturalist and educ…
  • Yes, Greenpeace is probably jumping on Apple because of Apple's progressive connections and strong positive public image. People expect Apple to be more enviromentally friendly than other computer companies because of the generally friendly image of…
  • I wonder how many people really need to upgrade multiple applications (excluding Acrobat) every time. Acrobat is a bit of a different story, because a lot of people end up "printing" to PDF, and using Acrobat in a limited way just about every day. …

  • I agree with the poster who said that Dell prices are very hard to figure out, because they change them in accordance with the phase of the moon, the tide on Cape Cod and the price of eggs in China. I tried a few experiments on their website today,…
  • I did a bit of looking around at what the competition offers today, to see how well Apple did with the hardware (regardless of Apple's far superior OS). Interestingly, I couldn't find a reasonably-sized C2D notebook that offered what the MBP does at…
  • I'm actually more likely to buy it right away if it is only a minor revision (same case, but with Merom and maybe a new screen or video card) than if it is enormously revised. If the revision consists of Merom and a couple of things Apple bought (an…
