Gee - Expandability, upgrading and modifying. I wonder what those would be like in a Mac?

Oh, and just wait until Apple finds out about keeping components cool:

And that means pure creative exhilaration with four 64-bit cores inside the new Mac Pro. The Core-based Intel Xeon is so power efficient, that Apple engineers were able to remove the liquid cooling system from the previous Power-PC based model. Which means you can load up the Mac Pro with more cards, more hard drives, more memory.

Back in 2006, there was a problem with heat in Apple portable computers.

2006 eh? Here's something from someone who bought one this year: http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2009/1/30/ In the article associated with the comic, the user states that it's a good laptop, but it shuts down during ordinary use due to the overheating.

To use your logic, 'It's typical of a Mac user to overlook a serious fault if they can have a pretty machine.' Smile

Funny how the topic of the point I was addressing was about the imac and not the mac pro, yet you just seem to ignore that... And liquid cooling isn't needed on anything anymore really. It's just a cool swanky feature some like, heh.

I won't even go into the cost of a mac pro... oh wait, I just did... Smile

I know this is an old thread, but I haven't been on for a while. I just wanted to point out that the lack of viruses on the Mac is not due to the smaller number of Macs vs. Windows PC's in the world, it is because of the way the Mac OS works. Someone above said that the Mac OS is based on Linux, actually Mac OS X is built on top of an open source version of BSD Unix.

A good article which explains the lack of viruses on the Mac was written by David Pogue for The New York Times, you can read it HERE.

The other big factor is price. Macs cost a lot more.

If you have a mac for $1,000 and a PC for $1,000 you are getting a hell of a lot more with the mac. You get far better value for money.

I was always a PC guy but made the switch to MAC last fall. While the initial price may be more for the Mac, if I had to add the equivilant software to a PC, we'd be right back to the same price, if not more.

I'm very satisfied with my Mac.

Me too! Just last weekend I decided to go with a Mac pro as I do a lot of graphic work and was mainly concerned about security issues and most of the questions I had in my mind were answered in this thread.
