I agree, especially since we are regurgitating the same stuff over and over again.
Maybe I can end it very succinctly, I have been building high-end PCs ($5000.00-$20,000.00) using Windows since 1998. I have been using Macs since 2006 and I find Apple products the majority of the time to be of high quality, reliable and stable products. I love my MBP 15", IPod and IPhone though some features not so much (mute with my cheek). I am OS agnostic, meaning I believe Mac OS and Windows are both equally stable and reliable, especially if we are discussing Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. I believe that Windows has to do a lot more than Mac OS, it has to support a lot more hardware/software and I do find it overall more user friendly, but NOT by a huge margin. I believe that the hardware and other software are equally important to the overall stability and reliability of the computer. I don't believe I would buy another Mac because I can buy and or build a machine that is of higher quality being overall more stable and reliable due to the higher quality hardware. It is possible I would buy another IMac because of what it is (all in one), but I'm not sure because as with audio/visual and kitchen appliances it's nicer to have separates when something breaks down. Using a MBP works better under Mac OS than with Windows.
I don't believe that one individual's user experience tells much about the overall quality, stability or reliability of a product, but rather a large collection of individual experiences. That is the basis of my facts I have set-forth.
I think that's it..................................
Pascalf can have the last word, I don't think there's anymore to say?
