    ive read rumors of apple possibly leaving the personal computer market in the future possibly within the next two years so if this happens then what about everyone whos bought an apple what about tech support or upgrades if apple gos down as far as computers go does that mean all of our expensive computers become paper weights???????? :confused: here is one of the places i read about this...http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1589170,00.asp

    They will not leave the computing market. Just buy your Mac. Plain and simple.

    Apple is as likely to leave the computer market as BMW is to stop making cars. Order a new iBook today!

    That article is a poorly-argued opinion piece. Not even a rumour...

    Any Mac you purchase will give you years of hassle-free computing.

    Hahahahahaha! Oh my...Thanks for the laugh this morning CaptainCaveMan. I really needed it.

    Do what you want. We are not Apple. We do not work for Apple. We just buy their products. So once again, do as you please.

    I feel like I've lost intelligence by even reading such junk. If you buy into an article like that, you don't deserve a mac.

    They are only important if you want to be courteous and enable people to comprehend what you're writing without having to re-read it a few times to make sense of it.
    "Cartoon face" added to make sure you knew I was merely offering friendly criticism and not wailing on you or trying to be abusive.

    Sheesh!

    in a medium such as an internet forum where everything that people are absorbing is via the written word its just good form and practice to write english as close to normal as one is able to do it also makes it a hell of a lot easier to read and grok personally I find it to be incredibly irritating to read a post such as this and feel stupider for having wasted my time after all this isnt some aol chat room where the rules of the english language are completely suspended as the idiocy rules the roost u grok wtf omg **** lol
