Apples are the equivalent of film slr's almost extinct and doomed to irrelevance due to their reputation (in Australia) of high price, tremendously slow and expensive repair and up keep costs. I believe they have started using intel processors in an attempt to remain competitive with pc's.
My question is--- why pay twice the price for the same if not less quality than the opposition?
Stop talking complete rubbish. This isn't the forum to start a Mac vs PC fanboy war, especially when most of your comments suggest that you haven't got a clue what you're talking about. The OP asked for advice on Macs and that's what we're trying to give him.
As for Macs being "tremendously slow"; I've had mine over a year and it still takes a mere 30 seconds to boot and runs a lot faster than any other PC I've ever owned. I'll agree, they *are* very expensive and that is annoying when you can get a comparative spec PC for much less money. On the flip side, the OS *is* a lot better than Windows in my opinion so it's really comparing apples with oranges.
They are FAR from extinct.
Aaah, we have an agreement that Macs are expensive?
As an Englishman, Telex, did you read the entire post in its English syntax?
tremendously slow and expensive repair and up keep costs
referred to the speed at which they are returned from repair, service an maintenance shops here in Australia, not
, not the speed of the machine.
Irrelevance and dinosaur like status in the market are probably best related to 2 Apple shops in Australian capital cities closing their doors in the last 3 months, they were once mighty, but oh how the mighty have fallen.
As this is a forum
, I thought I may be able to introduce another line of thought into the post as to relevance of one format over another and as to your suggestion of fanboy
elements, I hope you aren't referring to me in that way because if you had jot of understanding of my views on brand loyalty you would swallow many verbs, nouns and adjectives rapidly.
