    lets hear it people.
    One does not greet death when he knocks at your door.

    Nay you repeatedly punch him in the throat as he slowly drags you away.

    Mac. They simply work better. And that comes from someone who started when you had to boot a computer with a DOS floppy disk just to get it going.

    The operating system is better. You can actually own a Mac longer without it feeling slower or bogging down because of software upgrades etc.

    Gaming...internet....photo/video editing DVD authoring etc. There is only one thing I can think of that Windows can do better (for now) and that is handle the AKO website. And for that I keep a Windows partition on my MacBook Pro.

    Which by the way runs faster on my Mac than any Windows machine I've ever used.

    Macs are good for people that don't understand computers.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    How did Darkhelm put it? "Because Mac is dumb." Or something like that... :D

    And for gaming Mac's are the worst choice. Just about all games are designed for PC's, and then kit bashed to get to work on Mac's.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Yes gaming. The MacBook Pro I'm using has two video chipsets...the NVIDIA GeForce 9600M and the GeForce 9600M GT. One is shared memory access to save battery life and the other is a dedicated card with it's own 256mb of memory.

    The graphics for gaming are awesome.

    You say you haven't heard anything new. What exactly are you wanting to know about Macs? That might help people give you the answers you are looking for.
