Apple MacSpeedZone has benchmarked the new Intel iMac, and they conclude something completely different than MacWorld did not too long ago. "We are pleased to report that our testing results show that the new Dual Core Intel iMac, which clocks in at 2X 2.0GHz is almost as fast as the current high-end Power Mac that has two Dual Core G5 processors running at 2.5GHz." And so it seems people can't seem to come to a consensus on anything related to the Intel iMac. Whether it be speed, or sales.

Dude, it's a computer. The vast majority of the world has computers which you Mac users claim to be "ugly". They don't care and many of them are richer and probably have more style than you. They know it's just a tool, and for the most part they don't care what it looks like.

And yeah, for the record, I'm not "elegant". I don't need to impress with my wardrobe. That's the yuppy way But I guess if someone either needs to make up for their personality or are not afraid to show how materialist they are, yeah...it's all about style.

I certainly didn't claim PCs were ugly. I just claimed that looks do matter to people buying computers (and toasters, etc). Judging by the fact that Dell, HP, Sony, etc, don't sell beige PCs anymore, I don't see why that's such a controversial remark.

They know it's just a tool, and for the most part they don't care what it looks like.

If they didn't care, Dell's computers would still look like my old D300: http://www.andovercg.com/ebay/images/dell-dimension1.jpg

Oh don't lecture me about materialism. People buy nice looking things because they like to be around things that look nice. Most people are this way, to one degree or another. There is no point denigrating them for that.
