I agree, that sounds like it makes the most sense, at least until ARM-based processors actually get powerful enough to be used for what Mac's are at least generally marketed as being able to do effectively(high-end photo editing and graphic design, music/video/animation editing and general content creation, etc)

Win7 supports legacy applications reasonably well, with the bonus that you can run all of the modern releases of the various software offerings, rather than being locked in with some ancient version that OSX users get stiffed with on a regular basis.



Again, this may have been partly true a few years ago. However, Win7 came along, having been put on the Trusted Computing diet, where it has had some major improvements in all respects. This, while OSX had been saddled with geegaws and bloated with garbage. Apple has been too slow at bringing out competitive models, falling back on obsolete or oddball processors and ancient video systems - while PCs give you choice and freedom to fit whatever need.

Apple has also failed to bring out portable computers that can be used in business style enviroments. But then, they know they can make more cash selling toy computers because their fraudulent commecials look cool - than to make practical computers that people can actually run stuff on. Apple scores large in making the largest array of iPods imaginable - while not catering to the computer world with anything of practical interest.
If there were one person on OCN that I would think should have an avatar that simply states "Idiot," it would be this guy. Every thread you post in, you clearly spread misinformation and FUD as if it's the truth. You NEVER have any facts and everything you say is from distorted field that no one else even can consider partial truth.

The only reason OS X has dropped older hardware is that PowerPC is dead. They supported PowerPC for quite a while after the move to X86 architecture. Hell, I have a 2002 Powermac that runs Leopard just fine, just as fast as it did Puma (10.1). Now they're dropping support for PowerPC but EVERY SINGLE ONE of their X86-based products can use any version of OS X that's coming down the road. Not to mention that OS X supports any software that has been made for OS X, whether it was coded in Cocoa or in Carbon. So, your "legacy" argument is just as trite as your existence on this site (oh, I just rhymed.)

OS X is the least bloated OS out of all commercial OS's, and it's nice to have only 2 versions (Client and Server) rather than the 7 different Windows versions out there, consumers pay a base price for EVERTHING instead of being nickled n' dimed to death for "extra" features.

I'll be sure to stay away from Apple laptops in 2013. Transition periods are never smooth.

Hopefully my laptop asplodes within the next year so I can already have my semi-mobile solution in place before that time.

If Apple does this, and can bring their laptop cost down a bit more, I'd actually be in the market for one.

A RISC arch. with a nice UNIX based OS on top could be good. As it is now, I just can't see forking over the money for limited improvement over a much cheaper (insert 1 of many decent non-Apple lappys here).

That's a rather silly "either or". No, there are no low-budget edutainment games intended for children, though there are a whole lot of (mostly low budget/indie) games that very few people know of. There are a few well-known games but with a few exceptions I'm not all that much into "well known" or mainstream games.

I always thought Oregon Trail and Word Munchers were great edutainment games...

I'm not sure where you gather your information, but Apple co founded ARM with Acorn and VLSI.
