First off, this community is full of intelligent and well rounded users which makes the topic I'm introducing possible. Before linking threads similar to this lets please assume somewhere things became heated and everyone put up their mental walls on certain ideas. If you choose to participate please: Do not flame or argue against the person above you Keep the idea of your response clear as well as to the point, (short as possible) Indicate which question(s) you're answering to, example below If your idea is positive to the question/topic, text color your comment green, negative to the question/topic, red. Example: 1. Do you believe high end portable computers, Macbook pros specifically can perform tasks outside operating system limitations (meaning not apple applications) dramatically more efficiently? 2. While cosmetically appealing, high production quality apparent and enforced; what to you justifies the high price on an item which (compared to other materialistic wants/needs) has a short life time before upgrades are implemented? 3. Do you feel that Apple markets efficiently enough for you to buy a refreshed product before you have seen your entire payments worth? Feel free to PM me suggestions or additional topics, thanks and looking forward to reading!
