    Yes, correct, Macs always look cutsy and appealing, but thats where it ends. After using a Mac for heavy production in the graphics industry for the last 12 years, I have learned to absolutely hate them. I was so hoping OSX would be an improvment over the old Power Macs and OS9.2, but alas, things have only gotten worse. Apps constantly crash and/or do things you dont want them to do, about 4 times the finicky-ness of the old Macs. We get about 1/2 the work done now of what we use to with G4's and OS 9.2. Yes, Prettier to look at but it stops right there.

    And FIVE installation CD's for OSX? COME ON! a little on the excessive side. Windows XP pro with SP2 still fits on one CD.

    Other Mac "old timers" I work with say the Qudra was the last good Apple, I must say I tend to agree with them. Most all of us/them have gone over to PC's and Windows XP Pro for home machines in the last couple years because we can't stand the frustrations of the 24 Mac G5's we run every day, dont want to look at another one when we get home.

    And by the way, PC's CAN do graphics, and quite well I might add, and to top that off, much more reliably.

    Say what you want, toot the horns, trump up those Apples, they are still what they are, not much. A real power/production user simply MUST have a PC to get anything done.

    I know this will bring the Mac cultists out of the woodwork, but that's the object, they are so excitable and fun to watch!
