I just dont understand why Macs have been so hyped lately. It just seems to me now that Macs are more or less just shiny toys people have to simply flaunt the fact that they can afford one. I don't see how one can justify $1100 for the entry level macs that have mediocre at best techinical specs while you can get good if not, great laptops at that price. These macs have last generation core 2 duo processors running at 2 ghz, while laptops at that same price have i7s and if you're lucky, have video cards like hd 4670s in them. Do people really buy macs because of performace, or because it's just a stutus symbol and pretty to look at?
