I think mental masturbation can be good!
If the OP was just posting a link to a website in order to educate the rest of us, there's truly nothing wrong with that. However, since it is from Macworld and there are a lot of Mac users here, I'd assume this isn't earth shattering news! I don't believe it was a rhetorical question when one asked if you'd be disappointed if nobody replied to thread. Rhetorical is also in the dictionary!
Oh, my opinion? There are too many interfaces and too many choices for everything! Just look at cell phone cells, too many standards in the USA, have one!!
OK, back to the "debate"
Steve, save your money and stick with windows, let morons like myself test out Macs, Iphones, Imacs, MB Pros, Ipads, Leopards, Snow Leopards, Lions, etc. I'm trying to love Apple products, however their proprietary BS, I can't take an extra battery for my MB Pro and very difficult upgrade path (Hard Drive replacement in Imac is a NIGHTMARE) sickens me! I do agree, their products are stylish, does that matter?
Ps, Can Thunderbolt be "negative" ?
