And I don't agree that apple lags behind technically, that is BS. I'm not going to bother giving you a list.
There are plenty of legitimate arguments about Apple's shortcomings, (ex/ I don't want anything to do with the apple store or owning songs or movies that I don't have control over). but your complaints are not realistic
i know you cleared that up, i wasnt talking to you. i was clearing up what i said with the other guy.
they do lag behind technically, they dont offer current gen processors in their machines. the macbook pro is still running a core 2 duo. hp's elitebook line already has the core i7's and i5's and they've had them for months. then you pay a much higher price for that hardware than if you went with a machine prebuilt by any other manufacturer. that old tech macbook pro(core 2 duo @2.53ghz, 4gb ram, 256mb shared video ram, 250GB SATA hd) cost more than the brand new elitebook 8540p(core i7 @ 2.66ghz, 4gb ram, 1gb dedicated video ram, 320gb SATAII hd). i'd like to see your list btw.
which complaint is unrealistic?
