Apple I recently bought one of the new dual core PowerMacs. Having used the machine for a couple of weeks, I thought I would share some of my observations and feelings about it. First, let me get my biases out in the open. I have, for about four years, very happily used Linux on my desktop. Doing so has made me very comfortable with the UNIX environment in general, and with GNOME specifically. During that time, I have used OS X machines on a regular basis, so I am quite comfortable in that environment as well. Since I switched to Linux, I have not used Windows for anything more than the occasional bit of software testing or lab work, and generally feel quite uncomfortable with it. Thus, this article is very much written from the perspective of someone who finds OS X and Linux pleasing on principle. I implore the reader to make his own value judgments based on my comments.

Are you being intentionally retarded? I really have little patience for this asinine stance you have. Samsung is not a premium brand. It's not even a common brand, actually. They were a premium brand for RDRAM several years ago, but that's about it. It doesn't matter that Samsung is a "leading manufacturer," neither their brand nor that model of memory is a premium product. Since you base your entire argument around the brand of the product, rather than the model, I am left with no option but to point out that Samsung is not a brand associated with premium DIMMs, regardless of their manufacturing.

Premium memory is tested, selected, and warrantied for high-performance and aggressive timings. That stick of Samsung memory you linked to is of no higher quality than something out of a Dell machine. Please live in your dream world if you want, but save me the attitude that accompanies your ignorance.
