there is always a computer faster than the one you just bought. the only thing you have to do is wait a few weeks. and if apple does not watch out it wont take long til they are outperformed.

but the question is - can you afford to wait? who pays you the time you waited for the faster computer, which in turn is outdated in performance and/or price soon too ??

if you dont mind money, then get the machine that suits your needs for as long as you need to save the money again for upgrades or a new machine. if you really badly want a mac, then better start saving big bucks now

2 more things.

1) "Macs beat the PC" Macs are devoloped by a one single company. there are lots of PC companies plus countless custom build PC's. So there will always be a better PC in my opinion.

2) Making this topic was pointless since theres another one in the other forum section.

no it is not pointless. not everybody is reading everything here. double posts are not good - but that is not a double post at all. and i dont see that Forum_snowboarder33 responded to the other thread at all - so he most probably did not see it when he wrote this article.

edit: well now he has responded, if you want to rip my head off for lieing - but that does not change anything that this thread was not useless to post.

hehe I don't mind. I just don't like reading two different topics with the same topic posted and having to reply to both.
