Re: im about to start a war

I am running around work here today (in a loop) like a chicken with it's ass on fire. Sorry, but the old "head cut off" is a bit too graphic for some of the younger member's fragile sensibilities. I just got WAAAAY ahead of myself and I do apologize. Last time I checked there were practically no specialized or optimized music PCs with over 2 gig of ram.
I was referring to, and without making any intelligible reference to, the optimized PCs for around 2000.00 USD per my initial post. Yep, you can get pretty much anything you want if you have enough money. No question.
The point is the fact you can get VERY capable and excellent optimized PC laptops for 2K and where as (unlike PCs) you can get killer performance from the Mac Book Pros right out of the box, it will cost a hell of a lot more money (roughly twice). Other than 4gig of RAM, what are you getting that is black n white superior? Hmmm? 
What can these magic Macs do that comparable PCs cannot?
Why do the majority of audio software developers start with PCs and add Mac drivers later once the Mac attack reaches a deafening crescendo ?
If I could have any laptop that I am personally familiar with right now for free, it would be the grand daddy Mac Book Pro. No question and I have always stated, they are the most quality mass production computer on the planet. Only thing, I had 2500.00 big ones and I must say, my MusicXPC M4x kicks sum serious tail for a system that I would have had to spend close to twice that for to get any better a system at the time. The ONLY improvement would have been more RAM.
bye, back to work, hope I didn't botch this one up too much! Peace,me

IMO, there is POSITIVELY NO ADVANTAGE from an average to above average musician/dj/music related application stand point to using ether a PC or Mac unless you are talking strictly laptops.
I thought we were talking laptops here, but are you sure? POSITIVELY NO ADVANTAGE  is a very strong phrase, man. You've disproven all possible cases where there could be an advantage? That seems like a blanket statement. I'm sure it is correct in some contexts, but this seems like a situational context to me, where there is a lot of systematic relativity at play.
The hardware as is currently made available to the Mac Book Pro user is superior to any PC laptop that I am currently familiar with. This is strictly based on their capacity for RAM. (2gig PC - 4gig Mac)
Heh? What are you talking about? I can go out right now and buy 10 laptops from 10 different PC manufacturers, with 4gig of RAM.  What do you mean by superior?
Everything else you will hear here or on ANY forum is merely personal opinion based on limited experience.
You mean like saying one piece of hardware is "Superior" to another based on an incorrect assumption? :)
