There's a lot of Mac fans in this forum, right? The new mod is one, correct?
I know my opinion probably won't be popular or liked at all but I don't understand the fanfare for Macs. Granted, the laptops/hardware is considered top quality and it should be for what they charge you. But, for all intensive purposes, this stuff is even more proprietary than WINDOWS and this includes the hardware that has Windows 7 installed on.
A 'mini-HDMI' port?!? WHAT?!? Also, at least there is freeware and shareware for Windows. Apple/Mac or should I say MAC OS has the advantage of Unix but this is ultimately closed source. Where there are ways around using MS Windows at full prices and associated software, there is less options when using the MAC OS. It's just the way it is.
Then Apple overprices everything as MS does but there seems to be less criticism for Apple from Linux users. That makes little sense to me.
Anyway, maybe I shouldn't offer my two cents but isn't there anyone with even somewhat of a similar perspective. Possibly, there is some info I missed or a perspective that might challenge my suggestions but anyway, that's just food for thought, perhaps?
I'll shut up now... zzzzzzzzipppppppp....
