    Hey there guys,

    I am writing an article on the mac OS and hardware. if you have any credible sources (online or otherwise) that point to mac strengths please let me know, as I would like to cite them. Hardware wise, I am looking for performance benchmarks on the top of the range apple Powerbook.

    Any help is GREATLY appreciated and will further a spread of positive knowledge regarding Apple and its products.

    Here are some of the specific issues I would like a source to back up...topics with "**" indicate they are more important to me than one with "-"

    ** Performance benchmarks...I would like to show this machine is at least capible of running Doom3, but I would also like general benchmarks of the 1.67 G4, 128mb Radeon in any taxing task

    ** A credible techie source that demonstrates the Apple OS is worth merit (ie: not joe blow saying OSX is the cats PJs, but someone with some type of crediblity)

    ** A source that shows how deleting programs on the mac is a more efficient and clean affair than on a windows box

    ** A source that shows seamless (or at least tolerable) transition of office files from mac to PC

    - The fact that the Powerbook is the best, or among the best, looking laptop on the market

    - An explaination of the tech behind SMS (although the Apple web page explains this, I want to avoid using the company web page for obvious reasons)

    I realize I can find a number of sources on my own but I am sure you guys could provide me to sites that I have not yet found, or ones that are more credible than what I am working with. I very much appreciate your time and keep in mind the goal of this article is to generate switchers...

    Again, thats very much for your time and effort.

    visit www.barefeats.com

    www.xvsxp.com provides a fairly objective comparison between OS X and XP. It provides a standard set of features and tries to compare them and give them scores (1-10). In my opinion, it does a pretty good job of it

    I got nothing for this one. But you can just use Apple's website or something that shows that most installations and uninstallations are simply drag and drop.

    From the Microsoft.com/mac website: link I know that it doesnt show how to actually copy the files, but you can note that OS X supports all sorts of removable media (USB, CD/DVD), works with windows networks and has email capabilities. Further info is on the Apple Web site (www.apple.com/switch).

    Just visit www.dell.com. ;)

    Sorry, I got nothing for this.

    $MacUser$, I hope this helps.
