Apple "Apple has shiny new x86 based iMacs and the eloquently named MacBooks (yech) out on the market, and reviews, barring a few fawning toadies in the print media, are exceptionally rare. The usual Apple cooked benchmarks abound, but there is no real third party analysis, I think mainly because it is afraid of what will be found. The biggest bloomer is its tacit non-denials of the fact that the current x86 macs will never run XP in an approved or corporately acceptable fashion, and Vista is a long long long shot. Apple knows, is doing nothing to quell the rumours and speculation, and I think that's irresponsible."

--takes three minutes to boot up.

This is false, my computer takes about 30 seconds

--that requires you to have an internet connection to install

also false, it requires no internet connection to install, it doesn't even need it for activation

--thats loaded with spyware that send info to the cia.

whatever....

--Thats a whole four gigabytes, I mean for chrise sakes. I could compress eight hours of raw DV in a ISO image that'll take up that much room.

Also false, my XP install, after all my apps, is less than 4Gs, I wish you would get your facts straight.
