Microsoft After the more-or-less positively received "You find it, you keep it" television advertisements, it seems as if Microsoft is quickly falling back to its previous mistakes of relying on easily countered FUD-like tactics. We already discussed the blog post regarding Linux on netbooks, which was easily countered on virtually every point made. However, it gets even worse: Microsoft has ordered a study detailing what the company calls the hidden "Apple tax" that you are supposedly paying if you go Apple. Now, I'm the first to state that Apple simply doesn't provide the optimal pricing for everyone, but this Microsoft sponsored study is so completely and utterly ridiculous it makes me wonder just who on earth would look at it and go "Yeah, this looks pretty convincing!"

I had gone to buy a computer.. and found that there are so many computers available for windows.. dell , hp , thosiba , acer etc..
1. ) suppose dell remove one motherboardfor $100 otherside ace/hp/etc.. will remove same motherboard for lesser price just to beat dell.. these way pc is cheap.. Where as on mac , hardware is expensive but if you see it will run faster and smoothly than windows... just give a try on intel machine which you can get on torrent. if you like than buy the OSX

2. ) i agree windows is easy to use for new user but when virus attack new user wont come to know what is wrong. you need a anti virus to remove it. In mac if vvirus enters just delete the file from application or where it stored.. no need additional anti software to uninstall..

3. ) windows xp or vista or later version does not support fat 32 with higher capacity hard drive .. just check it.. where else in mac it is fully supported try to copy any higher capacity file into fat formatted drive...
