Windows 7: Apple Macs...

Ehh, I didn't understand it either at first. I, unfortunately, bought my MacBook Pro a few months ago. I was looking for a new computer, and I heard these things were just soooo awesome (that was coming from a group of Fanboys), so I decided to give it a try. Had a bunch of problems with it. Nothing hardware related, it was just that the OS kept being weird. After about 8 complete reinstalls over the course of 3 months, it seems to be working like it should. I've been into the hackint0sh business for a while so I already knew how to use OS X.

I prefer Windows 7 over OS X instantly. It's just that, since I'm on a Mac, OS X is sort of exclusive to it, so I do that for all my school work and whatnot. I still have Windows 7 on it for gaming and other things. Also have Ubuntu on here, which is just a novelty at the moment.

I still can't see the point of a mac, and the price is a joke. The base model macbook (one of them) comes with a 160GB drive standard. So where is the value?

There isn't really a value. Unless you want a computer that has a high resale value.

My take on buying a Mac is that, if you've had absolutely crappy luck with Windows and PCs in general, then get a Mac and go away.

I'm still shocked that I bought one. I just want all 3 OSs (Windows+Linux+OS X) without going through anymore hackintoshing junk.
