Hello, Im wondering why people like macs? whats your reason for using a mac and if you use mac exclusively why? I find apple worse than Microsoft. For a start they are more proprietary and give you very little choice of hardware. I have often wondered why apple dont sell a base unit only? I don't want a desktop machine that uses laptop components. I can sort of see the appeal of a mac. I like the idea of one company selling both software and hardware so it works the best possible. but why should I pay extra because it has the apple logo on it? I can get a quad core desktop machine with high end graphics for less than the price of the cheapest imac and that includes windows 7 home premium. the pc has much better spec.
