    That may be your opinion sir but I can't take my 360 everywhere. If I could afford the laptop conversion I would. Until then my phone and a ps3 controller will have to do.

    I'm always willing to give it another shot! Connecting a PS3 controller sounds interesting, What are some good games your playing?

    I actually have a ps1 emulator so any old games you enjoy on that. I also have an n64 emulator. I grabbed gta3 which is extremely controller friendly. Attached is my list of games.

    it is more frustrating when the Mac user is asked something 90% of PC users would know and they are dumbfounded.
    A younger relative of mine switched to a Mac and I told her I wouldn't be able to help her with it since I am not willing to spend the time to learn the Mac OS so she needed to learn it. Then her computer was running really slow and I told her to see what was running and kill any processes or applications that might be causing the problem. I told her in Windows you hit CTRL-ALT-DEL and pull up the Task Manager and to do whatever the equivalent of that was in the Mac OS. She had no clue.

    I know, this is just one story, but I can tell you more like it. I do know a few techies who use Macs but most prefer Windows or Linux. Everyone else I know who uses a Mac uses it because they don't want to have to understand how a computer works.

    Exactly. I find the same to be true with iPad users. It apparently "Just works" yet they are lined up out my door come Spring Break when they need to get on a plane and be able to watch a movie on it.

    Well let's see the base 27" iMac is 1799 on apple.com and I just "built" the same pc on Newegg using good hardware and it comes in around just under 1200 so thats a 600 dollar difference. Granted it's a separate monitor and tower configuration and doesn't have the all in one ultra thin aspect. But still the 600+ dollar difference remains.

    I am no fan of Windows, but I can't take the locked down environment of Apple, either.
    C'mon Brad, this is just silly. The hardware is locked down, not the OS.

    Being am engineer at an an engineering school, I am noticing that electrical and computer guys these days have both. A pc that they do all their work and gaming on, and a mac they carry around for casual stuff.

    Me personally, I would rather shoot myself in the foot than spend the unreasonable amount of money on an o's with an unreasonable amount annoyances like osx has. And I can say that be cause I edited video and other media tasks on one for 2 years as a job. It's where my hatred began.

    Plus I just spent a lot money building a windows 7 system ;-)

    You must hang with some wealthy guys. When I was in college, I could barely afford one computer let alone 2.

    I've never tried Linux but have always wanted to give it a go. Maybe when I have an old system I can install it and see how it runs. Does it support programs like photoshop?

    If not natively there is a program called wine that provides a compatibility layer for many windows programs and games.

    Linux isn't for everyone and it really takes a willingness to learn and research. As for you brad if nothing else you could dual boot and install Linux on a flash drive. I think you would enjoy it.

    Both serve their purpose, I've edited with Avid and Premier on PC and FCP on Macs. Is it cheaper on a PC? Sure is but both systems and the respective software get finicky with codecs and formats. Want 100% foolproof? Edit good ol' film on a Steenbeck table, lol.

    Actually no not really. They just have nothing to their name other than electronics that they have accumulated over the years. All the macs were bought used or refurbished and most of the pics are amd chips which are generally cheaper to build and upgrade.

    This sounds like a joke. To get a movie on iPad you do 2 steps. Open App Store then download movie. I can't see had that would be hard. To download your personal movies you just go to movie location and drag it to iTunes then sync. It can't get any easier.

    Well I'm no Apple Fanboy but Apple tends to bring in features a bit later because they perfected them.
    Until iOS 6 Maps came out.
    I got nothing there.

    When I was in college the only things I "had to my name" were student loans. Still paying those suckers off!

    I been helping enough of my friends and classmates to know some people just are too lazy or don't care enough to do the easiest of things. So that just sounds like another day to me.
