Apple isn`t any better. They name their operating systems off of retarded animals and you just don`t like Microsoft. Microsoft is better, and much more succesful than Mr. $teve.


Being more successful doesn't make Microsoft better! Apple may not be much at selling their products, but they focus on what's important, making a computer that ACTUALLY WORKS! Vista's new features are what Apple already had in Panther, 4 years ago!

You think $500 is overpriced? That's the price of the Mac Mini, a very good deal. In fact, Macs aren't more expensive than Dell, Gateway, HP, or any other brand.

are u mad?! if macs are equally priced with all the other computer companies then why doesn't everyone buy them? why don't they have a humoungous market share? correct yourself and say that mac-minis are equal in price to dells, hp's etc. and that isn't even entirely true because any personal computer's price is determined by specifications and their costs,not to mention tax........

one reason people don't buy macs instead of other brands is that you can buy a hp or dell computer practically anywhere, macs are only sold in a selected few shops and applecentres

Oh, and you are saying a mac mini is not comparable to a Dell Dimension 2400? Macs don't have a huge market share because while Jobs was away for 11 years or so, they made many huge marketing mistakes. Also, many people don't understand the difference between the specifications, the processors are different architectures, so speeds are measured differently. And tax, well... you can't escape that, no matter what computer you buy.

About the name, I think Vista is a better name than XP, which stands for Windows eXPerience.

you rock Darth :D

Good point, FF, While, PC are wide ranged, apple computers are in a meagre space in australia, and some other countries. You don't find one around the corner like other computer shops. And Apple makes QUALITY products like Tiger, While XP- LH (vista) is made, apple released, more than 2-3 OSes. And Also in WWDC keynote, apple is releasing 10.6 Lepord. There look great, and they work great.

good grief....more zealots. please note that i was't attacking the macintosh community, simply stating that there is no way one can make a general statement that macs are on par price wise with other brands. other computing companies have much better...... controls over their production rates etc. especially with alot of "value models" that are produced, which alot of people who simply want a pc and know nothing about them, purchase them. this just has a huge advantage over apple. but i must admit that i myself would gladly try a mac if i had the money but only when they're more universally compatible with software that i frequently use. and i would not ever doubt apple's innovation in comparison to apple. but the reality is that microsoft has a vice grip with it's windows OS and that cannot be helped for a LONG time to come. i take no sides here, so please no wars people.
with regards to the new name, it's really interesting and perhaps shows that microsoft is stepping out of it's "shove it at them they *have* to use it" mentality...... or maybe i'll wake up now,lol.

i fold on the issue of mac availability because where i live in trinidad & tobago in the caribbean, buying a mac is..... troublesome to say the least.

Mr. Dark, do you own a Mac computer?
I do and I know extremly well what I am talking about.

Everyone says that they buy Macs for their style. Then then find out that the can`t play games or run their favorite applications on Windows.

I use Macs for one thing, well two but the second thing doesn`t really matter.

Microsoft is better because they are more successful and it is true!
Only some public schools and enterprises used Macs until the iPod came out and it increased their sales by a longshot. Then more people found out about Macs and the applications you can run on them. They only good one imo is Adium which has basically been ported to Windows with Miranda. Microsoft has been this way for years and will be.
