So apple computers have really become a rippoff now that they use intel and they keep trying to gouge consumers even more with the charging of the remote. So what is the deal? I have been waiting for a new macbook pro for a long time and with the release of the penryin macbooks I gave up. Been using OS X for a long time, ever since it came out but I think I have finally given into the MS darkside. Here is why. Macbook and macbook pro same design since forever. No option to remove the hard, no option to remove the optical bay, no sd card, no 2 button trackpad, did I say same design. THe biggest problem is the fans. WHY do the fans keep spinning all the time? Its poor design. Finally said screw it and got a thinkpad T61 14" laptop. WOW. Here is what I got. - 2.5GHz Penryin T9300 - 2GB Ram on one chip - 250GB Hard Drive - Built in webcam - Removable superdrive. Can put battery there or anothe hard drive - Trackpad and touchpad - 3 usb ports - Firewire port - Spill resistant keyboard - The nicest keyboard ever made - Wifi N and Verizon WAN and bluetooth - Screen goes ALL the way back - Integrated graphics ( I don't play games) - Modem, Ethernet - Upgradeable CPU socket!!! - PCMCIA Slot - Express Card SLOT Oh and the fans have NEVER come on yet. THe laptop runs very cool. Plus I can replace this cpu with something faster later if I want. No need to buy a whole new laptop. So its basically the best laptop ever made. Just doesn't run OSX. I say screw os x. If I am being ripped of and torchered over it then it becomes too rediculous to keep using. I havn't totally given up on Apple. Will wait to see if they ever come to their senses. Oh by the way, that whole configuration listed above cost me only....Ready? $1190. SHIPPED. And it didn't cost extra to get the black one. Don't hate me because I want the best hardware ok.
