Yeah, Microsoft hasn't ripped off every feature from Macs since its inception and the Apple II didn't change the landscape of personal computing. We've all been living off the innovation of Apple for a long time. Personal computing/mice(stolen from xerox)/iPod/Smartphones/Tablets.

I think the thing that annoys me the most about the mac vs PC debate, is that mac users are fine with paying $1000 extra for aesthetics...it is totally the users choice, but that just does not register in my mind...each to their own I suppose.

Don't really see the issue when there are case modders that will spend more than that on getting their case looking how they want it to.

Individual functions, absolutely. But one of the pro-Mac arguments, and one that my experience with Macs fully supports (no Mac owned right now by the way), is that the integration of apps on a Mac is just "so much better". Everything works with everything else, in a seamless, transparent, and almost natural way. In other words, to Mac fans, the whole is greater than the sum of the individual parts.

I truly wish that level of seamless integration were more ingrained in Windows. I have, for example, having to go find the music and pictures I want to include in a video using one interface, then importing it into Premiere Express to actually use. Why can't PE (or whatever your video editor of choice is) just work with iTunes (or WMP, or any other music library you prefer) seamlessly? That's the kind of stuff Mac users are referring to when they complain about having to jump through hoops in Windows. Is it a dealbreaker? No! Does it prevent someone from doing anything? No! But does it slow them down, or *gasp* just annoy them? Heck yes! And needlessly so, is the point.

I hate to sound like I'm taking a side...like I said, Windows user here, not a Mac user at the moment. But it does seem to me that many Mac bashers truly don't understand the Mac lovers thought process.

Now THAT is one hella good point that I can't believe I have never seen mentioned before. Rep+.

I remember a few years back I brought my macbook pro to work. We have many different printers at work. I was able to plug my macbook pro into each of those printers and print off exactly what I needed. Being able to do that and connect to the wifi network within seconds (not having to dick around with drivers or anything else) saved me hella time. Just one of the many reasons I have continued to use my macbook pro on a daily basis. It saves me time and I get ***** done!

Just to kind of expand upon that. The entire Apple line of products work together seamlessly like that, not just the software.

I don't know of any other product line where I can jump from device to device, depending on what I need, and have the same user interface or one that's just as easy to use (the exception being AppleTV). This is the main reason I'm looking forward to Lion. It'll bring aspects of iOS directly to the desktop. I can jump from my iPhone to my iPad to my iMac or Macbook and have the same (or very similar) user interface. All these gizmos work and play together incredibly well, even with AppleTV. I hate to use buzzwords like "vertical integration", but it really is a major selling point to me.

No more dealing with 4 or 5 different products that all provide the same thing in one way or another, each with a different remote or set up or configuration. And as a caveat, I'm not knockin' those that prefer that sort of thing.

Just wait til the revamp of mobile me this year, I can't wait to see what they're going to do with that. Push mail, addresses, calendars across all my devices? Awesome!

Good to know Lion should only be a ~U$30 upgrade from Snow Leopard. It's sounding pretty good.
