Many techs will tell you to take your iCrap to the iStore, as many of us just flat refuse to work on them... (Regardless if we can or cant)...
Another reason why iPeople will pay more than any other computer user on the planet, Apple has the iLock on all it's users & subscribers...
I love telling clients (I run a PC business on the side) that we don't do Apple. They ask "why? Macs are the best computers you can buy" and I proceed with laughter and give them a peek at a hardware comparison list of a sample $1,000 "mid-range" build compared to a standard $2,500 Mac desktop. Basically, it goes like this: (only listing most crucial components)
i7 2500k, overclockable to ~5GHz (Nuff said right there)
1TB of hard drive storage
Dual channel 2x2GB 1600MHz RAM
GTX560 (maybe a 570 depending on how generous I am and how much I want them to bite a purchase)
$2,500 Mac Pro:
2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon (
3GB (three 1GB) 1066MHz memory (
1TB hard drive
18x double-layer "SuperDrive" (
ATI Radeon HD 5770 with 1GB GDDR5 (Words/emoticons can't even express the fail in that)
Icky Mac OS.Edited by Stealth Pyros - 2/17/11 at 11:51am
