  • I just bought my Mac (my first ever) about 4 weeks ago. Knowing that I'm gonna have to dish out another $130 in a few weeks kind of ticks me off. I expect this sort of crap from Microsoft, which is one of the reasons I left (lets actually fix so…

  • My argument is not that PC Games rule the industry, just that they are a prime motivator for progress on the platform. If you also look at the age groups, I believe the median was 27 or 28 (I don't have the page in front of me). People in this age…

  • I'm 37 and I play games just about every day. So do most of my friends. We're all avid computer users and all gamers. We are probably somewhat of an exception, but not entirely. More people play games than you realize. Furthermore, these teen…
  • I build and maintain my own PCs. I also am the recent purchaser of a PowerBook, so I now live in both worlds. I am a hardcore gamer, this is why I still own the PCS. I can tell you, without a doubt, that PC users do not get new monitors every 2…
  • As a new Mac owner (my first one ever), I started getting caught up in the excitement of what might happen. I really got into the whole Mac culture and I've started getting active on these boards. I'm a hardware nut, both PC and Mac, so I was kind…
  • I just bought a 10GB last week. It's going back to CompUSA (at a cost to me of about $80) for one of the new ones. Dang it, I knew I should have waited.
  • Going head to head against MS on an unmodified X86 platform would be suicidal. Additionally, AMD is not going to build any type of PowerPC, they can barely keep up with production on their Athlon line. They simply do not have the facilities to do b…
