    actually the process is easier for most mac programs, you don't have to go through the registration hack like most pc programs

    that depends on the program. I know some programs that require cracks even for mac.

    I would spend $3000 more to get a Mac.

    It is just better quality, it never treats me bad, and it is far superior for a/v applications.

    Beautiful to look at at, joy to use.

    With so much of our time spent behind the screen, why not buy the best.

    Just typing on this keyboard is fun. Apple is awesome. I've had both. No comp.

    Of course it should be a consideration. I love that the fact that if you know what you are doing with a PC, anything is available for free on the net.

    For $3000, I can build you a computer, that is faster than any Mac, runs OSX.... All with a 52" Sharp Aquos 120mhz 1080p TV that makes any Mac display look like crap.

    Im not gonna bother arguing the merits of OSX vs. Windows, but Apple hardware flat out sucks.
    And thats how you get ants!

    Doesn't surprise me. I've also heard that hardware failure is a lot harder to repair.

    I was simply commenting that theft is a reason to buy something for the poster.

    Why should it be a consideration? If you don't want to pay for it, then you don't need it.

    I have owned more than a few macs over the years, and have really never had an issue with hardware failing on my computers (iPods failing is another issue). And the issue about hardware failure is a lot harder to repair doesn't make sense, unless you are referring to the motherboard, which is about impossible to fix or replace. A hard drive is a hard drive, a video card is a video card, and RAM is RAM. All pretty easy to fix on a mac, with the same parts that you would use to fix a PC with. I have fixed plenty of macs in my time (more like upgrades, but the same process), and except for an ibook HD replacement, everything was pretty easy.

    No one will argue that Macs are more expensive than PCs. Its true. Some will pay for it, some would rather take the money and build their own PC. To each their own.

    I suppose that's true, but I like the option of having it anyway. Yes, I know what that makes me.

    Actually, the motherboard was what went wrong in the instance that I heard about. For whatever reason that I still don't understand, the person who told me about this also wasn't able to retrieve any of the data from the hard drive either.

    Its a logic board in a Mac. They have to think different.
