Quote from: Barrister on August 25, 2009, 11:17:30 AMGrr...I can't find an online vendor that can sell me both Snow Leopard AND cheap RAM upgrades. The price Apple charges is absolutely insane (5-10x what it costs for no-name stuff).

The price Apple charges is absolutely insane (5-10x what it costs for no-name stuff).See, THAT'S my real issue with Apple. I gripe about shoddy construction and piss-poor technical support, but really, lots of computer makers do that- at least you can usually tell by the price what you're getting. Apple has no excuse anymore to be charging the amounts that it is. Even Alienware doesn't, since being acquired by Dell.

That said back in tha day I dropped my ibook several times. no problems. it only died when i spilled beer in it. reasonable that that wasn't covered in warranty (which had lapsed 2 weeks before beer spill anyways.) I've had other non mac computers and had about the same amont of issues with them.

Quote from: Barrister on August 25, 2009, 12:54:38 PMYou know I very nicely made a specific Apple thread so I could talk about Apple stuff. You're free to come and piss on Steve Jobs if you really want, but I wonder why?Apple computer themselves are reasonably priced when you look at the exact components. When I bought my Mac Pro I priced out identical PCs, and the price was almost identical. But you had to be very specific in what you were pricing out - in the case of the Mac Pro that meant pricing out a quad-core Xeon. Or if you compare an iMac you have to compare to other all-on-one form factors.But one thing that Apple will screw you on is memory. I really don't know why. That's why I ordered my system with the factory minimum in both RAM and harddrive - because non-Apple components would be much cheaper. But the system itself was fairly priced.
