I have been an apple fan since 84. I used macs all through university, and although I dont own a mac I still keep my eye on whats going on, hence my presence here. Unfortunately, now I am a working man, I am forced to use Windows during office hours, partly because thats the OS of "choice" in most offices, but mostly because I use AutoCAD, which does not exist for the mac. (I know there is Vectorworks etc. but that is a different story.) Most of you will be familiar with the old OSX on x86 argument, Marklar and the rest of it, but what I want to know is, if Apple is a hardware company, why don't they make Apple hardware with x86 processors that can run Windows? Using Virtual PC is too slow to be used productively. I would happily pay a premium for Apple hardware because I believe it to be well made and well designed, and that is important to me. I understand that the integration of software and hardware is extremely important to the overall mac experience, but surely Windows would run better on the premium components that macs contain? Anyway, thats my question, flame on if you like, I'm here to take on all opinions, in the hope of developing mine. Cheers.
