These are Macs after all. Macs are said to be designed for the lowest common denominator.
That's actually Android apparently after seeing the amount of people on OCN who are afraid/don't know how to root an iPhone. Mac users are on the average far more intelligent and more likely to have a degree. Something about being successful and having money.

everyone uses disks. Do one day without your internet and then we'll talk.

Hmm, all high school girls have macs, but they're not intelligent nor do they have degrees and/or success of any kind.

Except when installing windows and, you know, motherboard drivers.

EDIT: And having a Degree has nothing to do with knowledge. It means you paid out the arse for college, completed it, and have a near-worthless piece of paper as you still can't get a job

Drivers on discs are outdated before they ever reach you. Always download the latest from the manufacturer website directly.

Not impressed. Toshiba Portege only weighs 3.2 pounds, 1" thick with an i5-2410M, DVD-burner, 13.3" screen etc. Apple is about 2 years behind on product design, but that doesn't stop followers from spending $1200+ on them.

Not to mention the Vaio S, Thinkpad T420s(14" laptop with 1600x900 screen and weighs 4 pounds, only 1" thick), etc.

Then how come every single good job requires at least a Bachelors degree? Sure, a college degree means nothing if you don't apply that knowledge or acquire valuable experience, but it doesn't means it won't give you more opportunities in life.

Back on topic, while I do agree that Discs are still widely used, I don't see why it's not better to just sell the laptop with an external disc drive. That way, the user can get the best of both worlds without sacrificing weight.

I can say from experience, the entire physics and math department at my university has macs.I think he put it wrong, but he has a point that the educated often have macs. They are normally wealthy, are always on their computer, and they need a *nix variant (all science is done on *nix). It makes sense to have a mac for them, plus they are shiny as hell.

All science might be done on *nix but all engineering is done on Windows. And we all know which of the 2 fields are higher paying

I wouldn't go with science is done on *nix...rather I would argue computational computing is done on *nix. The majority of engineering is performed on windows. I've seen it on Mac as well. It just depends on what software your company needs.
