Ya Apple is overpriced,
But look at what they're giving you.
Top of the line equipment.
But what really sells a Mac is, just the whole Mac.
You see, OS X was put on a Mac and Mac only, so apple knew what kind of OS they should be making. They knew what drivers
OS X was going to use and wasn't. They knew if OS X was capable of running on that machine.
So with that they gave a stable OS and a computer.
This also gives better Customer Support.
So much less headaches.
But if Microsoft did the same thing, I'm sure they would have a really good OS and computer.
Vista isn't so bad, I was using it, until I switched to Windows 7.
Sure there were some bugs, but i didn't find much that really annoyed me.
But I have had friends that bought PCs with Vista built into, where as the Machine shouldn't be running XP.
I think that is one of the major reasons why Vista didn't work for most people.
Microsoft didn't know what drivers were need so they just threw them all into the installation, and they didn't know what computer Vista was going to be installed on.
I heard rumors of Microsoft Stores, don't know if its true, or if they are going to start making they're own computers, but they should really start thinking of it.
