The last time I had a Mac, it was a laptop some 6 years ago. Back in the day, yes, the lack of software was a very real issue. Enough so that I ended up giving up the machine to come back to the Intel chipset. I do agree that Macs easily outperform PC's in a good number of aspects. My biggest hangup has been the overall design of their packages. <br> <br> My biggest nig on them is the &quot;my way or no way&quot; means of selling. I don't have to go to IBM to buy a PC, depsite the fact that IBM was THE major player in the 8088 days. This is why PC's are less expensive. You have competition. This is also why software support was better then. More people bought PC's due to the lower costs, so the development went that way. Second, it is the machine itself. I don't want some funky fruit colored thing, with zero internal scalability, nor some square with maybe one or two internal slots. I don't like being forced to crowd my desk with corded attachments to build a custom PC. I do a good enough job of crowding my desk with my clutter. So long as Apple refuses to allow me as a customer to come in, and pick whatever parts I want, from whatever manufacturer, and then put it all INSIDE a case, so that the PC itself is out of my way as much as possible, they'll never get me into one of their machines. It IS unfortunate that they don't do this. I've lost track of the number of times that I've wanted to bash the computer to bits due to it fighting every single step of what is supposed to be a simple upgrade.
