I can't answer that question without admitting to a crime. Read between the lines. Hint.....I dont' pay for ****.

It's is only a "serious limitation" to those who want to play games on their computer. This is now the second time I'm pointing out to you that the person that asked the question didn't list playing games as one of his criteria. In fact he said "No gaming whatsoever."
As far as limitations on software are concerned...PCs will run 95% of all written software on the OS to that came with the PC. If you counter with....well I can run windows on my Mac then you no longer have a mac....you have a pc running on an intel chip. It kind of undermines your argument now doesn't it?
If you want to upgrade a graphics card shouldn't you have that option? Not if you have a Mac. Wouldn't it not be nice to have a second mouse button on your Macbook? It's little simple stuff like that that annoys the hell out of me. My laptop cost $1800 and if I was limited to what I could do with it I'd be pissed. Mac owners seem to love their Macs because all the decisions are made for them. It's like they can't think for themselves or something which probably explains why they can't keep their PCs virus free.
iTunes is easy to use. Is that all you have? If I am an audiophile and want the cleanest sounding MP3s because I hook up my iPod to a DVD Audio, reference quality system in my car should I not be able to create reference quality MP3 files? Trust me.....iTunes can't do it. Before you tell me that I can't tell the difference let me tell you that I can, especially when I listen to my iPod with reference quality headphones. But I'm sure Apple has a program that will do this for you....for $50 or so.
What? I don't know what your point is but that was a lot of gibberish. What does how many songs I can fit on my ipod have to do with the ripping capabilities of iTunes? AAC & VBR are for losers who can't afford a $100 hard drive. iTunes rips MP3's just fine, if you're not a retard and can figure out how to open iTunes preferences. Then again, you are a ducks fan... ;)
Again, if you want to spend that money because you want that new video card you should be allowed to do it. Plain and simple.
Spending $500-$1000 in upgrades is hardly comparable, and once again you are falling back to the "ZOMG! Macs can't play games" argument. It's not in dispute, nor is it relevant, and it's all you've got. Sad.
Dude, I used to work as a computer engineer for a very large company in Newport Beach. Mac is not compatible with everything. We had one guy who was the biggest douche in the world. He drive a white VW Beetle (the new ones) with an apple sticker in the back. As soon as he had enough clout he worked the system and got himself a Mac. The ONLY ONE in a company of 2000 employees. I bet you think it was easy for the tech guys to get it on the network huh? Well it wasn't. In fact they deemed it unsuitable for the network and would not let him put it on. What made it incompatible? I don't know, it wasn't my responsibility to get it networked. However, in talking with the guys who were in charge of networking it they were adamant that it could not be done without compromising the infrastructure and creating a whole mess of support calls.
Strange, my Mac is "compatible with everything" as well. I've asked you to provide ONE example of something and you can't, let alone one example of something that actually matters.
Dude Macs aren't perfect and in listening to a majority if you guys it's like you are repeating everything from a Mac commercial. It's ****ing eerie. I've never owned a Mac. I've used other peoples Macs and didn't like them. I can't personally give you examples because my experience is so limited with them. I just see what people say about their Macs and about PCs and frankly it doens't make sense to me so I don't buy it. However, I found a site that gives plenty of examples of Macs falling short of perfection. It just works? It just works my hairy ass.
Mac Apps Suck
Mac Hardware Sucks
For all you people that bitch about Vista....
Leopard OS isn't all that great either
