  • I'd like to know what manufacturers that person compared them with! Dell? Overpriced. Gateway? Also overpriced. Alienware? Geared towards the hardcore gamer and massively overpriced.

    I always build my own systems because it always saves me money. (Unless I'm looking for the very cheapest thing money can buy, in which case, I would pick up a $200 - 300 PC off of the net either without an OS or with Linux installed.) This is an option that Mac people just do not have.

    I found a great reply [osnews.com] that pretty much sums up the rest of my feelings on the issue (laptops, configuration of the PC vs lack of configuration of the Mac, etc).

    But don't get me wrong, I have nothing wrong with the Mac itself, just the price and lack of options. I have used a few Macs over the years (remember the small grayish-white one with the monochrome screen? Ugh!). At my last place of employment, I had to maintain the PCs and the one Mac. That's where I discovered that MacOS is not so bad.

    If it wasn't for MacOS 9, I'd still think that it was horrible. OS X is pretty nice too. It's fairly intuitive, something that long-time Windows users will have trouble dealing with. ;-) I must hand it to Apple for switching to a BSD-based OS.
