Again, I don't want to seem like I'm hating on Apple. They're in a very enviable position right now the way Microsoft was before it and IBM before Microsoft. Thats just the way the business cycle runs. But apart of that cycle is people starting to turn against or at least highlight the short comings of the current champ; even former devotees such as myself...

And regarding the Mac computer; its been true in my case. I had a Mac mini since they first came out with Intel chips (06 or 05 i think). My original is still going strong and is more than useable today. I updated to the newest version about 2 weeks ago; because I found a very good deal on one (on Amazon, of course Apple refuses to discount their products much directly) and wanted a dedicated graphics card and the improved chip set. Everything is working very well, as i expect. Since my first mac mini at least 3 pcs have cycled through my home or others that I got a computer for them. Macs do last longer (in my case). I thinks its more of a software thing than a hardware thing...

Interesting, thanks for sharing your experiences with the Mac. One thing I realize with the Mac versus PC is that Mac products just don't seem to annoy me. Windows is always popping crap up bugging me about stuff. Stop it Bill!
