I support them because of their policies AND their products. I really don't take much value in what kikko says. The guy is giving me crap about my keyboard/mouse and he's using a logitech mk550. That really says everything I need to know about his opinion on peripherals.

Yeah his point on Razer products was invalid. Your'e paying a price for it's functionality. Not many sub 50$ mouse products give you 5,000 dpi, programmable buttons, weight bearings, and changeable gribs..

I in fact have a Logitech G9x Black. I got it for my bday from my brother, looked it up and saw it was 100 bucks and thought "*** this is a mouse?" Well having that ability to change the dpi is HUGE in games like battlefield 3! When i get in a tank, i can change the sensitivity on the mouse instantly so i'm not stuck with that slow turret speed (maybe a bit cheating ^^) lol

guys, dont forget when apple ditched the old processors and went Intel,

Workstation from Apple got you a Core2 Duo and ATI 9600 PCI!!!

PC users were utilizing 7800GT's on PCI Xpress at this point.

and the thing was double the price of any other PC you could get -.-

those days, I worked at COmpUSA, and I converted MANY Mac users to PC, once I explained how they are just a PC with a white box.

lol yah they Crumbled, same with Circut City,

they both got bought out by Systemax, who owns TigerDirect, GlobalComputer, Misco (in eaurope)

they bought City and Comp mostly for the websites, they were still getting hits and business often

I actually worked for the GlobalComputer/TigerDirect for a while here in Jersey as a Large Account Manager and had a lot of fun until the Economy died lol.


but like i said, Apple has been pathetic with there hardware implementation for a long time. Over priced, under powered.

MP 1,1
Had either 2x Xeon 5130's, 5150's, 5160's took 32GB of DDR 2 ECC, came with either a 7800. x1900, or a Quadro FX 4500. It used SATA 2 and PCIe. in '06

MP 2,1 changed to 5365's so it went 8 core.

compusa even had GOOD prices for the pc parts too. Rather than Best Buy charging illogical prices for their GPU's and everything else in general. (though i wished i could have worked there back in the day for retail for the crazy employee discounts!!)

which was still behind

but the 2005 model was 2ghz procs and 9600, no PCIx, max of 4gb ram.

no matter what, every year they pump out a new Power Mac, but they were still behind on the parts.
