    Something more than "it's better".

    I can't. I love Macs, but they are overpriced. My Powerbook has been great, but it's a little outdated. I went to compare, and couldn't justify the extra money. I went with a Sony with Blu-Ray, 4 gigs of ram, same processor speed, and the same size screen.

    The only difference would be the video card, but the Vaio was less than half the cost of the Macbook Pro.

    from personal experiences here are a couple reasons why mac is better for me.

    Programs load MUCH faster, i have experienced WAAAAYYY less issues of programs not responding & everything is just much smoother. It's all personal preference. Like i said, if you're just using a computer for basic stuff such as internet browsing, checking email and the occasional office file then you might not want to spend the extra money, but you will experience the difference the most with big design programs.

    One thing I am noticing in this thread is you guys are comparing performance of a 32-bit to Apple programs. Remember in the OP he mentioned Windows 7 64-bit edition. There is a world of difference between 32 and 64 bit windows OS. Plus Windows 7 is a lot faster than Windows XP or Windows 2000, (anything is faster than Vista). Not too mention ever since Leopard Mac OS has been 64-bit so you are really comparing a 64-bit to a 32-bit OS.

    My experience with Windows 7 have shown a great improvement from their previous OS's. Adobe programs load slowly not because of the OS but the way they are written.

But Since the Leopard, the kernel has been 64-bit.

    Hopefully a larger font will get people to read and think about my post...

    PC's are just like life. You get out what you put in. You put **** in the PC, you get **** out of it. Problem is, most users put **** in and get upset when they get **** out.

    Macs are a closed system, you're not allowed to put anything in that's not approved. This can be a good thing as it prevents people from putting **** in their machine.

    Pick whatever you like.

    I completely understand what you are saying, Lososaurus. I'm just trying to figure out if the iMac is really worth the extra $600-$1000. With all the 'Macs are superior' folks out there I'd figure SOMEBODY would come up with something! So far nobody has really come up with a '**** yeah I'm going to go down to Apple right now and buy it" answer.

    And for the record, I am not against Apple at all. I consider my iPhone one of the best technology purchases I have ever made. Even better than my Commodore Vic-20 with tape cassette drive which started me down this horrible computer path I still travel today. Ah, those were the days. Typing hundreds of lines of hexadecimal machine language code from Byte magazine just to play Pitfall.
