I'm sure the editors at PC World didn't think their declaration that the fastest Vista notebook ever was a Macbook Pro would be immortalized in a Mac vs. PC Ad. Of course, PC benchmarks go stale fast. I wonder what's going to be announced at Macworld 08. [Apple via TUAW]
You windows users are such little bitches. First off, its good for Apple that Vista is running faster on their computers over others. Are you guys forgetting that they make most of their revenue off of their hardware? They make top notch hardware, for a top notch price.
@diabolusunknown: No shit Apple gets their hardware off the shelf. But they don't put cheap horrid hardware like Dell and Sony often do (mainly Dell). Thats the big difference. Apple doesn't go and grab some generic motherboard made by some no named company and slap it in their computer, they have a motherboard made specifically to work with the chip that they are using. Whys that so hard to understand? Also wake up and understand that most of the reason's for buying a Mac are to run OSX. Its far superior to any Windows OS including Vista.
@regnez: Its a good thing for Apple because they get to sell more computers now. Their market share in computer sales is sky rocketing year over year. With Vista running so well on their hardware, its another reason to get someone to go purchase a Mac and while they purchase it, they get a slipped copy of OSX in there to test out. Its a win win situation for the end user.
@coll: Maybe if you got a job somewhere other than a supermarket you could get one. Don't whine about price. If you cant afford it, too bad for you. And if your in college, don't even think thats an excuse. I was able to go to a college in Manhattan, pay for an apartment and a college that was higher than the 100k mark over 4 years and STILL bought a Mac.
@arashi: You hit that spot on.
@trongod05: The big difference is OSX is overall a better OS hands down, the hardware you get with a Mac is premium hardware even down to the case. So in the end, yes its a PC, but they need to keep themselves in another realm due to the fact that they don't want to be in the Dell, Sony plastic laptop crowd.
