    Interesting promotion. What do I have to buy to get a decent computer (a Mac) for free?

    That bus is pretty sweet, escalade front clip n all. I'd say it deserves better than an eMachine.

    Gotta love the MINIs. And their site is hilarious.

    The window below popped up after being on the MINI site too long. :)

    Its threads like this that make me embarrassed to be a mac user, pointless zealously to follow only the mac. Remember, its the operating system that MS makes that is bad, if Dell can sell a computer with a monitor for 500 dollars I will give them credit, its something apple can't do. And my dad has a 79 Ford Pickup with over 250K miles on it that he still uses as his main car (I don't know why when he has a never SUV in his driveway too, he claims its cheaper to use the pickup which is true)

    Er, what? I don't see that as a focus (no pun intended) for the whole thread. I personally don't think Windows sucks so much as I think it's not as elegant. I have nothing against Fords, but I much prefer the other brands owned by Ford to Fords themselves. Personal preference. And, yes, Dells are fine. But they are simply not engineered as well as Macs. They all - and I've owned and used a number of them - look assembled from what's handy, not engineered. The inside of a PowerMac blows away any Dell. But they're cheap and fast.

    Right, we are talking mass production here .... The only reason Dell can do for that price is by leaving out "emotion and personalization". There is a reason why you use a mac and not a dell. Obviously it is emotion over ratio .... On the lighter side, 79 Ford might actually be "cool", a 2003 explorer less :p ... Go Ranchero!

    Dell got the contract with Ford for their computers, not surprising that deals like this would eventually happen.

    "A Focus and a Dell,
    a Focus and a Dell,
    buy a car
    and you'll go far,
    with a
    focus and a Dell"

    Bauughhh!!!! Every time I hear that I want to puke! That qualifies as a truly horrid commercial, regardless of what you think of the promotion. *Shudders*

    Edit: yeah, the mini would be the car that I'd buy to get a mac. :D

    I'm not talking about anything you said or some others said, its just posts like this that are just as bad if not worse then windows users saying stuff about macs.

    I think its all in good fun. So lighten up. I see more posts pointing out and complaining about mac zealotism (macism?) than actual cases of such behavior. I wouldn't wonder if your tar isn't the only troll accompanying your posts.

    I see much more mac fanatics then people pointing them out. My avatar makes me laugh because it actually offended two people, and when they said it did I explained to them why it shouldn't.
