That's ok. We are all learning.

I don't like to critizise manufacturers anymore. However, when it comes to the operating system I'm sort of biased.
It's posts like these that make me want to contribute

And posts like these...

And if it breaks they can go stand in line with all the rest of the cool people at the bar with "geniuses" in it and talk about how cool you all are and how amazing and reliable that malfunctioning garbage that was it any other manufacturer would have long been returned with an angry phone call to the manufacturer is.

That make me delete a well thought out reply at the realization that there is no convincing a zealot.

BTW everybody. Just saw a Youtube video with a "lower end" version of this laptop. The boot speed was 13 SECONDS! I have never seen or heard of such a boot speed in my life. Just insane!

this is meaningles. I don't boot my machine (either mac or linux) once in long long while.

I'm not mentioning it from a practical standpoint. Just saying it's cool. Nobody really cares about 13 seconds VS 20 seconds.

They strive to monopolize the Mac space by preventing competition. They synthetically control it to the point where they do not allow Sun to write a virtual machine for the damn computers. Nor do they allow users to upgrade their java virtual machines (if you want extra security - pay another $30 for the next version of OS X). The only looser I see, if JVM were really important, is Apple, not the consumer; the biggest example is when Apple got screwed when it didn't allow third party hardware to be used for Macs; however, Microsoft did allow, and Apple got almost bust by 1997, as Windows grabbed all the market share. The JVM on my Windows PC doesn't run any better. 5 out of 10 times JVM crashes on my Windows PC. Pay extra$30 for next version of OS X - How much does the original Windows 7 cost? I bet it costs atleast $120. Did I mention Office 2010 professional costs$499 ?

it is what it is. i was not ranting. it is just that this argument is just silly. I mean may I ask what you can do better with windows over a mac? If i recollect, your computer crashed using virtual box. mine is still stable .

And also, I don't think anything from here on out is going to convince me to switch to windows anytime soon. Once you go mac you can't' go back

yes you need antivirus in windows. you don't need one at mac. I have gone and downloaded numerous documents online and still my computer is working completely fine. you sound jealous boy.
