interesting (if slightly negative) article on the BBC website here.
i believe that a thread about the PC magazine thing already exists..but...
OMG WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?! ISN'T IT OBVIOUS EVERY HARDWARE MANUFACTURER LIKES TO TWEAK THEIR COMPUTERS SO THEIR COMPUTERS WILL PERFORM BETTER THAN EVERYONE ELSE'S?!
The article is pretty bad for a couple of reasons:
- Ignores that Veritest was the one doing the benchmarks
- Only puts the 1.6GHz machine's specs up
- The "miniscule 3.5%" market share line is out of line
i will...3.5% doesn't sound quite right, but it's miniscule compared to microsoft's
are we comparing OS market share? because then i would agree, because I am sure you know that M$ doesn't make computers.
Typical boring drivel. Whether it's Pro or Anti Apple the article was flat out boring. I learned not one new thing from this article. And I'll NEVER get the 90 seconds of my life back wasted
The G5 will be faster than PC in "many" areas. It will also lose in some areas as well. The point we need to be focusing on is the further evolvement of the OS and having Powermacs that are competitive with PCs. We have that our platform grows.
BTW..here's a challenge. I defy anyone to find a PC motherboard for ANY processor that offers what Apple offers for $300 or less.
It must have Dual Processors.
SPDIF or 6 channel I/O
Good luck. I don't think it can be done. nForce Mobos are close..but alas..Single Proc only.
oops i was thinking OS...
well even with hardware, apple still has a miniscule market share compared with gateway, dell, sony, toshiba, hp...
Taken from MacNN Archives
Bloomberg reports that Apple had a 3.8% share of desktop sales in the retail market in January 2003. Apple was No. 5 in unit sales behind Compaq (32%), HP (31%), Emachines (14.3%), and IBM (7.8%).
Dell doesn't count because they're not retail. Gateways numbers in Retail are low because of their online presence...but then again so are Apples
Toshiba probably outdoes Apple in Laptop sales because that's their speciality. Sony..I doubt they have more Vaio Laptop sales than Apples Laptops
