    I would if they had accepted me for a job. They dont sell macs there because they dont have any specialist knowledge of them. Oh how i wanted to change that

    The PC World on our street sells plenty of Macs. I've always had the feeling that it's to people who know what they want before they enter the shop though :rolleyes:

    They sell macs in my local PC World, but they get updated rarely (e.g. Core Duo macbooks...)

    It does depend on who works at the store. If they have a mac guy, they will probably sells macs but mine doesnt and they probaly arent being updated because no one is buying them

    I think in some places, there were raffles and first copies sold were signed or something like that. I'm sure I read a news article about it....

    I've actually been living a lie...

    Yesterday I was told that every version of Windows is just another GUI for something called DOS!!!??? So can I just get the skin instead of buying the new one? Or have they rewritten this "DOS"? It could just be a Tiger skin for DOS AFAIK, we'll just wait and see.

    They left out my favourite... "Vista Ultimate Edition for Developers with Licences for 10 Computers of Which You Are the Primary User" :eek:

    I actually have that one, although it's not actually called that :p

    Don't you know anything? DOS is the base (the "code" if you will) beneath all operating systems, even Linux. Tiger, Ubuntu, and "Windows" are all just names for GUI's written to work with this DOS program, which of course was engineered by the late Bill Gates (who invented Linux as well as electricity).

    Presumably you're taking about MS-DOS, which was Microsoft's first major operating system. Windows 1, 2, 3 and 4 (95/98/ME) all sat on top of DOS.

    Windows NT (including 2000/XP/Vista) sits on top of OS/2 instead of MS-DOS.

    At my local PC World (OK, it's about 20 miles away!) they are still selling old (as in not even the latest rev's before the Intel transition) iBooks and PowerBooks at full price.

    If they were heavily discounted I'd be buying a 12"!

    Ouch. I feel sorry for those who actually paid full price for the iBooks/PowerBooks.

    You also must consider the retail version, open license, site license and OEM. Do add a multiplier of four to everything.
