What is the benefit of that? Third party manufacturers offer great quality for a lower price. It's not like their hardware break all the time.

Oh yea, it also has things called OPTIONS. You can do stuff such as CUSTOMIZE it.

Calm down. I'm just goofing with you guys. Microsoft sucks, not the PC. Much like guns don't kill, people do. Pc's don't suck, Microsoft does.

Look at all the stuff that gets bundled into a mac though when you first buy it, then think of the prices. What does windows give you for free? Solitaire and IE?

Awesome...

I can agree with that, but I'm not switching to anything else until i can continue to play my games and install the new OS on the computer in my sig.

Genuine hardware. It's no benefit to you, as it's already been stated, because you know how to build your own rig. That's all well-and-good. The person that goes out to buy a Mac is the person that expects QUALITY for their money. They probably aren't going to spend 80 hours playing BF2 or CS:S (I'm guilty of the latter). They need to work and make the money BACK, and they need piece of mind that whatever's in their rig is going to last quite some time.

Upgradeable or not, I know a host of Dual G5 owners that still get paid on their rigs after four years, and don't seem themselves upgrading for at least another one or two. And these are people with cold hard cash.

Third-party manufacturers offer GREAT hardware, it's not the point though. It's genuine hardware in a Mac and for that, you can't tag the Rigs as overpriced.

Even the ram is ECC which, I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) is more expensive than desktop ram. Given that Mac Pro's have server boards.

And you can get all the features of leopard into Windows with some programs, but you can't get any features from Windows into leopard.
I'm a single guy, so I may visit more nefareous websites than you do. I've gotten Malware (not viruses - viruses are no where near as bad as malware) that it a bit#$ to remove. I have to admit that these guys are GOOOOOODDDDDD!!!!!!! I tried everything to remove - kept coming back. Solution - reformat, and reinstall windows.

By the by-- one thing that Mac owners have is peace of mind knowing that when they sell their rig? There's someone out there that'll buy it for damned-near what they paid for it.

You can literally upgrade every time a revision comes out if you stick your Mac on Ebay or Craigslist. Someone's guaranteed to buy it JUST to save two hundred bucks.

This is exactally the point. Ok, lets agree they have a good product, and let's agree that it's better than window, there's still 2 problems.

1) people won't change to it because it's "new"
2) they can't market to us because they can't. You just stated that

so that leaves them with a inferior product because they can't market it right.

Get some games for it (which it sounds like they're doing) and open the OS up to non mac machines and then if they can keep the price at $130, i'd try it! and others would also. Then they are in the running for the superior OS.

Seems kinda hypocritical to me
Apple sells HW with an OS.

Microsucks sells OS - they'll whore themselves out to anyone, and let others deal with the comsequences.
