This guy is supposed to be a 'mac-head' and yet seems to know very little about the current state of events.

He says his Dell is faster then his iMac, ok, fine. Speed isn't why most of us use a mac in the first place. It's an old argument beaten to death;. Moto sucks and screwed us speed wise-thus the G5 from IBM. But the article keeps nagging about front side buses, Moto's incompetence, and how Safari can't render a lot of sites and forms? (I com across a site every now and then and submit the bug, but have yet to hit a form that won't work)

Then even tho the G5 is the fastest (until the AMD64 is absolutely crowned by more then 4 tests, 1 of which was a game, the other 2 apps were crap coded apps, this guy whines about dumping Moto and looking to AMD chips. Who uses AMD chips? Then goes into the dead animal debate of X on x86, and etc.

This is from a proclaimed 'mac-head'? Maybe we need higher standards as to what qualifies a 'mac-head' degree.
