Here goes - not intended as a rant and not a troll given the number of Macs we run for personal and business use. I've tried and returned the MBP and one duo core mini due to the reasons well outlined on a number of sites. However - the lack of native software is more and more of a problem for my business. HD content has been and is available on standard dvds in WMV HD format - you download them to your hard drive and play away on Windows XP. Can I do that on a MAC with Bootcamp with native speed??. The HD QT trailers on the Apple site are cute but I need to use HD video clips that play native on INTEL Macs - very LIMITED available. I am now spending WAY TOO MUCH time sorting through all of the technical codec issues instead of working on content, flow and customer needs - not a formula for success. This is just the opposite of the APPLE experience we all have loved. As it stands - I am may purchase the new SONY AR for presentation use. I'll develop the majority of the presentation on my QUAD - export it to Powerpoint for Windows - make the necessary corrections - import the HD video clips (WMV HD) - and use the SONY at the customer presentation Beyond that - in layman's terms - I can pop Blueray HD DVDs into the new SONY next week and watch them - where is Apple on the leading edge? Is there HD QT content out there that we can run on Apple core duo machines machines? If so - where is it? Thoughts are invited - thanks.
