    Apple's Boot Camp drivers royally sucked until 3.0 was released with Snow Leopard. Now, everything works as it's supposed to, including the multi-touch trackpad.

    The irony of it is, that a bunch of MS execs run windows on a MBP body. :P
    There's nothing ironic about running Windows on Macintosh hardware. Microsoft sells software to run on hardware, any hardware, whether it's made by Apple or Dell.

    Actually, most stop errors in the Windows NT era are caused by faulty third-party drivers, not hardware. The last stop error I've ever gotten on Windows was back in 2000, when I still ran Win98.

    I can't remember the last time I had an OS crash under Windows or the Mac OS... Applications crash now and then, but under normal circumstances the OS be shouldn't crashing regular basis. If it is there's something wrong.

    I never had a Mac PC () mainly because it's expensive. PCs do just fine.



    Mac vs PC

    LOL. The Macs at work crash all the time.

    And the response is, oh there must be something wrong with them.... but PC's that's just normal. It's not.

    Buy a Mac if you like it. That is the only reason to get it.

    But don't buy it for any of the bs reasons like.

    1. Its better for graphics.
    2. More creative
    3. More stable
    blah blah blah....

    It's not.

    If you do buy one, DON"T let those Apple dealer pricks lie to you about things like RAM. Buy your RAM at a PC store. It is the same RAM no matter what those idiots tell you. And it will be possibly 2-4 times cheaper.

    The actual hardware that is put into a MacBook, an iMac, or a Mac Pro is exactly the same stuff they put into "PCs". They run the same x86-64 architecture (Mac OS previously ran on PPC).

    Apple can run windows. use the parallel's program or the boot camp program and you run each individually or side by side lol..MAC's are awesome.

    I love the build quality and aesthetics of Apple but the functionality of Windows.

    Apple hardware running Windows... The best combo, in my opinion.

    Took another look at MacBooks yesterday, and I think I'm gonna do it - the display is fantastic, as a long time webdesigner I need color accuracy, and it seems MacBooks have better displays than most PC notebooks I have seen.

    The fanboys from either side have to come out a try to prove that they are better than the other party when in reality, both are equally stupid for trying to sway personal preference.
    I'm so sorry to be such a stupid, I thought to express just my opinion about it.
