Yeah...but they won't leave the price
3G is probably more expensive to make and they're also shrinking it AND if they add 30+gigs, expect it to be pretty expensive. Also, it's apple so it's bound to be expensive

You can definitely customize windows more than OSX, but you have infinitely more control over the system on OSX. The technical stuff is all hidden behind a nice (very nice IMO ) GUI - you absolutely never need the command line - but it's still all there. I got Macbook because I wanted the feel and control of a UNIX system without ever needing to exert that control for maintenance. When doing work I have to power of the command line helping me out, but when I'm doing things to the system I use the nice, noob friendly GUI Apple gave me.

Macs are for noobs
Windows is for noobs who don't know they're noobs
Linux is for nerds
Macs are for linux nerds who want a stable system
So that makes you a noobish linux nerd who wants a stable system?

"Macs are for noobs" + "Macs are for linux nerds who want a stable system" = "Noobish linux nerd who wants a stable system."

that has not been how apple has done things, they like to keep the prices the same even after major upgrades, but even if it goes back up to the initial price when they first came out i would still get one and even think about it twice.

any higher than that though would require some more thought.

I'm saying that Macs are for two completely different groups. C'mon - you can figure that one out on your own

Yes, yes, yes! That's exactly how it is. I feel sad when people say, "I can change whatever I want in windows."

I actually wouldn't say that last line is true. That implies that Linux isn't "stable." I would say "more compatible, lower-maintenance system." Because I think OSX is more compatible with most stuff than Linux.

Oops, this is a thread about iPhones

Edit: Post 6767... Interesting.

The thing about linux...that i dont get is people who use it with gui's like ubuntu. I dont know too much about it, but why the hell would you use an imitation over the real thing. Linux is highly versatile, yes but so very very inaccessible for the inexperienced. No one here can seriously say that Linux is immediately user friendly. Its power comes from its ability to be totally customized.

How is Ubuntu an imitation?

That's the problem... It's not at all as hard as you're making it out to be.

Ubuntu is QUITE user-friendly, provided that the hardware is compatible. Program installation is "search in package manager, check off, accept." The GUI is easy to navigate. There's really nothing hard about it unless you want to dwell deeper into the system.
