    Dose anyone here own a Apple desktop computer ?
    I have been a member here for a long time and seems like over 80 percent of mac users (not just here but everywhere) use a MBP as their main PC. I know they look cute and all that but what is so great about these all so famous Mac book pros ?
    Compared to Apple desktop models ? MBPs must be awesome because everyone seems to be trading in their old macs so they can buy a MBP. :confused:

    Yes, there are many people who have purchased Apple notebooks, but just as many, if not more people own a desktop. A notebook computer such as the PB or MBP has a certain convenience given it's portability, compared to a desktop computer. So they certainly are a popular choice.

    A good majority of people here do own a Apple desktop or Apple desktops. :)


    I for one, in addition to my 2GHz MacBook Pro, own a 2.3GHz DP Power Mac G5. :)

    I don't own an Apple desktop. I own a MBP. For one thing, it just had more screen real estate than the Macbook and Powerbook G4. Besides, being a recent switcher, and one of the main motivations being that idiots at my school keep connecting to the wireless network with viruses on their computer....:mad:.

    Also, graphics was very important to us. The ability to play Star Wars: Empire at War at full graphics was very important to us.

    Same here, I just could not settle for a MacBook due to it's integrated graphics. :eek:

    I'll be honest, i'd like a MacBook Pro that was silver so it would match my ACD and Mac Mini, in Silver


    Honesly i'd rather see a 12' MBP at about 4lbs with, to replace the black MacBook. (But a Black MB at the same price as a white one)

    With the same GPU as 15'' MacBook Pro( maybe at 64mbs)
