"Mac Hell" has come to and end ... tried the Apple way ... I'll never understand it ... twice the money for a computer and a 100 times the hassle, why? You take an LG P300 for example, a $1300 notebook, with 3 usb ports, hdmi, 2.4 ghz processor, 4gb ram, 256 dedicated video, EASILY connects to networks, dvd burner included, 7 in 1 card reader, long long battery life, excellent screen and full keyboard, very light weight ... Now take the MacBook Air at $2500, twice as much money, NO hmdi, no easy networking to windows pc's, (Apple Experts tech support told me can be a problem seeing windows machines on a network...)plus the MBA has only 1 usb port, 1.8 ghz processor versus 2.4 ghz, 2gb ram versus 4 gb ddr ram ... and did I mention it costs TWICE AS MUCH.... form over function for mac fans I guess... is it all because of OS X ? ... no I can't believe that anymore... vista and now '7' on the horizon ... they're too close to warrant Apples OUTRAGEOUS prices ... and poor spec's... Think about it, twice the money for way way way less spec's then add a display to the mix ... my LG plugs into my HP monitor via HDMI in an instant, no adapters, no need to buy a $999 ACD display to get a usb hub, LOL, the 24" HP monitor I have is high def, has 4 usb ports so it's a hub too but cost only $300... side by side they look equally good for sure .. why does Apple have to charge THREE TIMES the money ?? ... because it has special cables to attach to the poorly ported MacBook - unreal when you think about it ... sucks the money right out of your pockets and you get LESS. Slam away at me if you like ... I have a right to post my comments, $4,000 of my hard earned money tied up in the MBA and ACD etc ... for what? Grief! .... Grief when trying to find pc's on a network, same when hooking up a TV or monitor, god forbid Apple ever decided to be compatible with ports in the real world .... They could of done soooooo much better, instead you pay double for half as much and then when you realize it's a windows world you wake up ... you realize it's incompatibility, learning curves and lots of extra costs running to the stores to buy adapters that Apple isn't even smart enough to get in the stores yet, so you still can't hook up to a tv via hdmi without two cables and for the adapters that are available, priced from $29 to $59 ... these things cost less than a dollar to make in China !!!! Apple is a cash cow and a road to incompatibility issues and grief and you'll get an over priced under spec'd computer and Apple fans some how think they're ahead of the game. Sure, Apple is a rebel company, but it's going for all out profit and not paying enough attention to what the end consumer wants and needs, they could of done much better. Time to box up and return all this apple stuff ... time for a new LG P310 computer for me tomorrow ... then I can come home, turn it on, join the network no problem, plug and play into any TV or monitor I own, I can plug in two usb sticks even three if i want to move files, same with SD cards, I am a FOOL for not seeing this sooner, the price I pay now is going the huge pain in the butt returning everything ... Lesson learned, NO apple for me, why would I, why would anyone, LOL !
