    Hello people, I just need to make a comment.

    Apple products are exceptional. Whether it's the new MBP, MBP Classic, MB, or even the old MB's, our computers have an overall level of quality, refinement, and general usability that makes PC manufacturers look like Fischer Price.

    I think what's happening here, and I include myself in this, is that we are all just really excited about whatever Mac we have. The people with the MBP Classic know they have a timeless design, the new MB/MBP people are rightly floored by the surreal torsional rigidity and gorgeous minimalist design of their notebooks. We then go on one of the message threads and go on about why our macs are so amazing. All too often, we fall into the trap where instead of saying how amazing our Macs are, we say how much more amazing they are than "yours". It ends up becoming a negative spiral of bashing truly great machines.

    I've come to the conclusion that it really doesn't matter. I'd take a MB/MBP/MBA over a PC any day of the week. :apple::apple::apple:

    Hardware-wise, I think Apple products look much better, but I'm not sure the quality is that much higher than any other manufacturers. I've had many consumer and pro level non-Apple products that have little hardware problems as well, so I think they are about equal, especially considering the number of posts that people have with Apple hardware.

    At any rate, people choose what they want. If they are happy with Windows/OS X/Linux, I don't care; it doesn't impact me.

    Well said.

    Everyone likes to believe that they are objective in their decisions and opinions, but the fact of the matter is, that once your on a side, you naturally take it, and believe it's the right side no matter how irrational it may be. It's just the way we are, and those who love their previous MBPs believe they are the best in every way, as well as those who've purchased new MBPs.

    Simply put, to each their own. If you like something, who cares what someone else thinks?

    Agreed. I'm happy with my old Macbook Pro, but others are happy with their new ones. In the era when people are finally switching in droves, let's not welcome the switchers with a disunited Mac community -- we make Apple, Apple. Remember, no matter which Mac we have, we are all supporting the same company!

    I think there's definitely a tipping point that is just now being reached and especially due to the new droves of people coming, there needs to be a culture set.

    We can all get along once McCain becomes President and the divisive Obama campaign stops spreading lies!

    Obama = Windows; McCain = OS X. Choose wisely!







    This post brought to you by trolls against pointless posts. Poster is an Obama supporter, but uses the post to make a point.

    :D
