I don't understand. I understand that you can get a faster windows computer for the same price as a mac but you can't run OS X. DAW and Photography are terrible on windows (As is everything) so how isn't that alone enough to make them not overpriced. Also, each part goes well together perfectly so no incompatible part put together = no hardware problems. Software is easier to get. Macs also have a way higher resale value. You don't get crashes because of incompatible software with your hardware as much as windows. The trackpad on a macbook pro is the best out there. They have metal cases. They look great. I just don't get it. I would rather have a Powermac G4 than a quad core 3Ghz 16GB ram ssd drive windows computer because I can run good software. All the best software is available for mac like logic - even Sibelius which also runs on windows works way better on mac. How can people even compare Mac to Windows? Windows is like a Ford Fiesta and Mac is like a Ferrari. I don't understand?
