Windows 7: PCs for media creation

23 Aug 2010   #31


Macs have almost no security at all if the user doesn't know how to enable it, and I haven't met too many Mac users who are computer savvy enough to know how to disable single sign in mode, which gives terminal mode root access to anyone with physical control of the computer. A few lines in the terminal reveals the owner's password in plain text, and a minute or so later,

We've had two of our Macs infected and cleaned in the past year, which is the same number of PC viruses I've had to remove. However, We have 32 PC computers in everyday use. The experience of one person, I know....but malware is out there for either platform, and users can/are getting infected.

Treat it like a car (because some of the Mac pros can cost as much). If you look at the percentage of the decline, they do not hold their values any better. Any pre-Intel Macs are nearly worthless at this point, after costing so much only a few years ago. PCs still always have a value, and can even be donated to charities, schools, etc. I haven't found a program that takes old Macs.

Nokia hasn't been a major player in the Smartphone arena for years, at least here in the States. I own two iPhones, and they have plenty of their own issues (even when I hold it properly). At the time, they were the same cost as a Blackberry, and the Droid platform wasn't available. If I was phone shopping today, I'd easily go the Droid route instead. I have been fairly happy with my iPhone, but you can't really compare their phones to their computers. First, the iPhones are priced at or around the same as their competition. If Apple did that with their computers, the PC vs Apple debate would become much less one-sided, and be...well, actually debatable.

Agreed on that point.. macbooks are very popular with college students, and used ones usually sell faster than windows based laptops, but for a much lower percentage of their original price.
