I feel a bit shunned by Apple. When I bought me CD laptop in June of last year, I thought it would last at least 3.5 years, well into college for me. Now, I am a bit put off at how Apple has marketed and developed its target releases and the Leopard OS. Less than 7 months after releasing the 17in CD, they released the 17in 64 bit Merom; then 6 mo. after that, the SR. With leopard being marketed as such a huge discrepancy between 32 and 64 bit processing, it seems CD users will be in the dark once 10.6 is released, and also highly disadvantaged in 10.5 use. This goes without mentioning the countless faults and errors associated with the CDs including overheating, terrible LCDs, and processing whine, most of which has been repaired in the successive, 64 bit, models. My Mac serves as my editing station as well. FCS2 has been optimized for 64 bit use. My Macbook PRO, designed to be used with these kinds of applications, quickly looses value when industry standards can no longer perform adequately on supposed PRO(FESSIONAL) workstations. Sorry for the small rant but does anyone else feel as cheated as I do?
