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.

Again you fail to actually explain to me why you require a Mac Pro when an iMac would do in the first place. I have already accepted in another post on this same article (do you actually read peoples posts?) where I said that the Mac Pro was horrifically over priced for what it provides - that you're better off getting a maxed out top of the line iMac than go down the route and get Mac Pro.

Again? I didn't know I had to try in the first place, nor did I realize you were the keeper of such knowlege and I was required to explain my life and needs to you. Forgive me! And no, I did not see your other post as I was simply clicking on an email notification that brought me directly to your response. Do you ever do that?

I come back and ask again, do you actually need a Mac Pro is it more a matter of having a 'tower' fetish of believing that real men who have real work to be done require a computer with a stand alone case ?

In another response you accused me of an ad hominem attack... what the hell is this? And you said this before I let my rant go... pot, kettle, black.

It has nothing to do with 'computer power', the term 'computer power' is the biggest load of horse crap since GWB post-9/11 speech where he said 'they had us because of our freedoms'.

That's subjective bull-droppings. I agree that you buy a computer to get a job done. But there is such a thing as computational power and it does make a difference. Obviously if you don't USE your computer for anything other than blogging or homework, you don't need a computer with much power, as it appears to be the case with you.

You purchase a computer to get a task done and quite frankly 'computer power' is but one on a long list of things I consider

and no, I don't consider 'looks' as important as you may think - so stop projecting this bullcrap that some how every Mac user is a clueless idiot whose only concern is with aesthetics.

Please oh please tell me where I even intimated that? Please! Seriously. Where did you get that from? Did you smoke something and have a vision that told you I felt that way or something? Because a) I never said anything like that and b) I am an apple user. I don't think you are a clueless idiot, but I do think you have an overactive imagination.

I purchase my Mac because I prefer using Mac OS X - when people like you start labelling Mac users as moronic idiots

Again, WHERE DID YOU GET THAT FROM? If YOU ever read MY other posts on OSNews you would see that I am rather FOND of Apple and their products. But obviously you did not and have not... you only read what suits you and then you make up other stuff to fill in the cracks that you want a post to say.

I couldn't care about your 'Cool Master case' when it is coupled with a crap operating system, zero support in terms of warranty and having to deal with compatibility quirks between the different components.

Yeah, you don't get a "warranty" on Apple products (for more than a basic 90 days) unless you fork over more $$$ as well. I know because our iPhone, and MacBook both have extended warranties. The G5 had one but it has expired.

And what compatibility quirks are you talking about? So you've owned a cooler master case and you've built your own PC before? You encountered quirks? What might those have been?
