A lot of my colleagues in graphic design and publishing use a PowerMac G5 at home/office and have a Powerbook/MacBook Pro to use when on the road/ making on the fly changes at client locations etc. The biggest issue for them is not simply the CPU performance difference, but more to the fact that they believe that the components used are sometimes lacking compared to other high end non-mac laptops available. The issue I have surmised is that many feel that if things such as better displays and other technology are available, then why are they not available as BTO options for those wanting to pay for the additional cost? They are more than happy with OS X and Apple (As they generally have expensive desktops as well), but would like the option to get the best of whats available in the industry such as: - Higher RES displays (i.e. 15.4" SVGA+ 1680x1050 offered by Dell) - Video Card options (replace Mobility Xxxx with FireGL etc as on the HP Compaq nw8240) Now before people get critical for an apparent slight on Apple, it's not the case. I love what they produce, but I think more can be added to make a further compelling gap between the MacBook & MacBook Pro. In a sense, making it the undisputed PRO machine within the industry. What I'm interested in is what, if any, technology currently available on other competitors machines would professionals like Apple to either add or exceed on the PRO range?
