Mmm, no. Windows 7 costs about $200 for Home Premium, no? Up to $400 for Ultimate. Lion is $30 for as many Macs as you own.

Sigh, don't spread misinformation. Lion was a massive upgrade and it isn't a service pack for goodness sakes, go do your research.

Many Macs these days are on par with PC pricing, or at least very similar. And that's great, but most Windows users aren't students but most Lion users are anyone

You have clearly never been to my college. The only place where I see Macs is in the music and arts department (only one of 7). I can also legally obtain Win 7 HP for $60

EDIT: How do you install a $30 OS on a computer that hasn't already got an OS installed on it? Oh yeah that's right buy the OS for $30 and then another $45 for the flash drive from Apple.

WAT. Where do you get that number from?

Home premium has gone as low as $60.
$30 if you have student email address, or FREE if your school offers it.

As soon as I can install Lion on my personal computer I will actually care.

Until then, there's no way in hell I"m going to buy over priced proprietary hardware to get an OS that does less than the one I already have


The only big thing OS X has is Final Cut Pro, which is widely used in the video making industry.

Wrong forum to be repping apple mate. This is OVERCLOCK.NET, can Macs be overclocked? NO.


And macs are around 50% more expensive with the same hardware.



Apple makes some nice quality stuff, but they market things and the overall ignorance of the consumers like yourself is what sets me and many other people off.

I'm pretty sure that if Apple actually made this then people would buy it just because its made by Apple.

I'm gonna say something about this, only apple product I own is a macbook, so can't speak for the phones/ipods/ipads etc

But the build quality on the macbook is the same as any other laptop, the only thing that sets it apart from most is the trackpad..

...but the mag-safe chargers are terrible. I am on my third one, my brother is like on his 5th. They have a relatively high failure rate if you google the problem. Alot of the people defending the product gave responses like 'you shouldn't always leave it plugged in', 'you shouldnt transport it so much'

Turns out if you leave it plugged in, the wire inside can melt...
And if you transport it often the wire gets kinked and breaks

My 10$ charger for my old 2000 laptop, I can practically do anything to it, and it wont break.

I read that Apple has produced different revisions of the charger now, with thicker wire or w/e, but a charger should never overheat from just being plugged in to long. And its a laptop, its made for transportation, make a charger that can withstand transportation! Apple's price really did not justify the terrible quality of their chargers. But hey, its white and compact! And the charger is pretty important, without it my macbook is useless.

tl;dr

Price =/= Quality (at least for the chargers)

Ah, I see. I didn't know HP has dropped to $60, it was $200 the last time I checked.

Windows Home edition was $50 brand new in Canada, and has never been more as far as I've ever seen. It just needs to be ordered off the Microsoft Canada website is all (it's mailed to you free). If you are a student at any accredited school any version of Windows is dirt cheap as well.

Apple could not make an OS stay relevant for 10 years like Microsoft can. Windows XP was amazing and it is still going strong. Windows 7 could easily go another 10 years but there is no money in that. There is no money in a 10 year OS just like there is no money in a car that lasts 25 years. Frequent upgrades are what drive sales since people are materialistic by nature and like to have the latest and greatest in expensive toys.
