Apple The "Macs are too expensive" argument is one of the most tiresome and long-lived flamewars in internet history. Obviously, Apple makes a premium product and charges premium prices, and you can always find a computer from another vendor that seems to match or exceed specs that costs less. But if you look at Apple's Mac Pro line, and compare it not so much to other vendors, but to the past lineup of Mac Pros, you discover some very unpleasant truths that help explain why Apple is enjoying record earnings for their Mac line, but doing so to the detriment of some its most loyal and valuable customers.

Or you can do like I did: Buy the most compatible hardware in the first place and the worst that can go wrong is user error -- easily fixed.

The first time you install OSX86 I can almost guarantee you won't get something right, but if you research and read up on what you did wrong the next time it will either work, or work well. After that it's gravy.

Or in other words, it's like installing Linux was ten years ago. ;)
