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.

To which I pointed out that there are other computers from Apple you could have chosen from

Point it out? You mean by saying I have a "tower fetish" or something?

your whole post was nothing more than a pathetic rant implicitly claiming that the Mac Pro was some how the only computer on offer by Apple.

No, never did I even imply that, neither did I rant about it. I said "I built a mac pro clone for $1500".

That's quite a rant. Wow! You are the one that read your own feelings of the matter into it.

I stated before the Mac Pro was a rip off and you're better of getting an iMac and all you do is piss and moan about the Mac Pro as if were the only system on offer.

No I did not, again you make up crap to suit your imagined issue/conflict. But since you brought it up, actually the system I build costs the same as a second tier iMac. And still has (for my needs) a more useful CPU, more powerful graphics card, more RAM, more disk space and while I haven't checked lately, probably faster bus and memory speeds.

Then don't talk in hypotheticals unless you're talking about a real world scenario that one can marry up to what Apple provides

LOL! What the hell are you on about? What hypotheticals? You are the one hypothesizing about MY computing needs. Once more time, because once, twice even five times is not enough:

"I built a mac pro clone for $1500."

What is hypothetical about that? Do you want me to paste my newegg receipts up here for you?

So what you want sits out side what Apple is willing to provide - so why is there even an argument?

I have no idea, you are the one who started the argument.

it would be like me saying that Dell sucks because their all in one computer doesn't have what I want or their Studio range such because

No it is nothing like that at all. Very poor analogy. First, I never said Apple sucks, because I like Apple and their products and am a regular customer. Second they DO have what I wouldn't MIND having, because I do find the Mac Pro to be an attractive piece of equipment, but I realized that the guts are what mattered most so I saved 50% of the cost of a Mac Pro and built my own. Nothing more, nothing less. I don't know why you thing I am conspiring to debase Apple and apple users.

No, speed isn't the 'be all and end all' if the reliability is a complete clusterf--k - when I'm writing my thesis for university, making videos and so on I couldn't care a rats ass whether it was the fastest computer on the planet if the net result is something that kernel panics every 30 minutes.

Wow! Again, you must be very unfortunate indeed! I don't have those kinds of problems on any of my computers... not the one running Haiku, not the one running Windows, not the one (which I recently reinstalled Mac OS X on for my daughter when I gave it to her) running Yellow Dog Linux. You must really be cursed to have your computers crash on you like that all the time. I'm glad your iMac doesn't do that, or you'd never get ANYTHING done.
