you saw the part where the new macbook pro has 8 hours of battery life and the battery lasts 3-5 times as many charges as most notebooks?

even accepting that as a generous estimate, it's pretty good.

Compared to other "PDA" devices (which i feel the iphone hardly fits into said catagory) and the prices you pay for said pda services it's trash. By the time you pay $300 dollars for the phone. Then 50 dollars a month for 24 months. Well. now your phone cost you 1500. That's just for the phone, doesn't include regular service or texting.


Mac's I hate. with a passion. Mac just announced their new mac book, which due to mac's great insight does not have a removable battery. WHAT THE ****. People will buy it, which is so sad...kinda like the mac book air. just sad. I hope this trend continues and then they have a battery issue that requires thousands upon thousands of recalls, then people will realize how retarded it is.

I like that Mac changes the nameof computer parts. Like Mother board becomes "Logic board" and all of a sudden it's no big deal when your logic board fails, it's no big deal it doesn't say anything bad about mac reliablity it's just the logic board...happens all the time. right? ....right?

The biggest contradiction any mac user makes is that Mac is some how better for tech savy and know how computer people. and that only the best use mac. Then, in the same breath say how easy it is and that everyone can figure out how to use it.

I already know the answer, but look...it can't be for both. It's either for smart people who actually know jack about computers or retards that need everything "dangerous" hidden.
Im with you 100%

Would it relaly be that hard to replace the batter in a laptop? I mean i've taken apart my dell m60 about a million times. Its just not swappable, replaceable should be a possibility, unless they somehow mated it with the chassis.

I went from PC to MAC about a year ago. I'm an IT guy who works mainly in Windows and OpenBSD. I love it, I wouldn't want to manage the ******* things ... but I love my MacBook Pro. It's extremely light, the screen rocks socks and the battery life kicks *** on any of the previous Dells I've owned.

I can do all my Unixy stuff natively and run Windows (and others) via VMWare Fusion. To dismiss the Mac out of hand is stupid. OSX is awesome for the user experience. But I still wouldn't want to manage them.

I'd love an iPhone, but I just can't justify the price. I'd love Motorola to step up to the plate and release something that would compete with the iPhone/Blackberry. I love my Razor and Rokr (just wish the names were less gay).

Actually, the iPhone is quite affordable for what you get. I'm a mac guy from way back, and I switched from verizon to att to get the iPhone because the plans are cheaper. The iphone gives you free navigation. Verizon makes you pay for it. I priced it out, and I was saving like $15 a month over a similar verizon plan. It's expensive if you don't need a smart phone, but it's actually very competitively priced for the phones it's supposed to compete with. And $199 for 8gb of phone is not in any way expensive by today's full-feature phone standards.
