Apple I love OSNews, but it does seem like some of its editors enjoy just a little too much taking a good natured jab at Apple upon occasion (well, more like every chance that particular editor can get). I thought it time for a little good news and analysis about Apple that critics often overlook.

There are no cheap i5 laptops from apple. If you just want to surf the web on a 15 inch laptop you have to buy a MacBook Pro. Dell will give you a fairly nice and cheap Studio.

Cheap being the right word.

Apple will always give you the bare minimum. How long had Macbooks CD burners instead of DVD burners? How long did they have only 1 GB Ram when all Vista Machines had (needed) 2 or 4.

Not to be picky, but I have a First Generation MacBook, which was the first MacBook intel model. It came with a "SuperDrive" to burn CDs and DVDs. My previous model PowerBook from 3 years earlier (2003) also came with a DVD burner standard.

As to RAM I would never want to run Vista with 1GB RAM, it is a disaster. But the fact that MacBooks were sold with 1GB RAM when 10.4 and 10.5 were out is a testament to the OS. You could get along with 1GB RAM just fine for many tasks. My MacBook is maxed at 2GB, it is a Core Duo and I am running the latest 10.6 snow leopard without a glitch. It is plenty fast for most things, except games, and I use it daily to help me remove malware from my Client's Windows PC's.
