Hear that, and for many years I was that independent guy who knew all about antivirus software, and registry cleaners, and even the registry itself for that matter.  But then my time became more valuable to me than the price difference between Wintel machines and the Apple/Mac universe.  Add to that time savings the relative infrequency with which I have had to upgrade my hardware, the significantly lower software costs (with a higher level of functionality for me than when I was a Windoze guy), and the fact that my wife and children can use all of our networked computers/devices with almost no need for me to provide tech support and all in all I have saved huge sums time and of money by buying the more expensive Apple products.

x2 on Macs, but lets be careful before we get this thread closed for talking about Apple vs. Windows or the hatred towards apple (if there is anywink_face.gif)

Macs are overpriced indeed. Knowing how to lock down a system to prevent other users to ruin it helps significantly, and maintenance can be automated, running on the background.

Given the fact that "Windoze" users can get freeware that runs everything that's needed to make computers safe and tangle-free, it really makes the difference when simplicity (read kiddy-like) computing is required. And I've yet to see any "higher functionality" on a Mac/Apple software, that a Windows system can't match or surpass with ease.

 

But cifani090 is right, better not derail the thread.

It's funny how people can't make these comments and then end it with "don't want to derail this thread". Really? If that's the case these comments about PC vs mac wouldn't have been made. But I guess I'll throw in my opinion as well. Maintaining a good security on a pc doesn't take a lot of time. Infact after it's properly set up, which doesn't require much time at all. You really don't have to do anything. And as far as networking go, in my experiences, macs doesn't even compare. And for experienced users, PCs are fully customizable, and are not handcuffed the way macs are. "But I don't want to derail this thread, so lets get back on topic". wink_face.gif

funny how people seem to forget they are the only computer that can run anything you want simultaneously if you like, even though its been that way for several years now...... convenient for the argument though i guess.

 

also funny how win tweakers make all the kiddie can use it comments, if you want to get into the heart of it, simple enough to open a proper native unix terminal session

Yeah I guess you're right. I guess that's why over 90% of all computer users owns a mac. Oh wait.......

post #22 of 31

This is really fun. But I'm going to leave it at that. I don't care who uses a mac and who uses a pc. All I care for is what's best for me. I can't speak to what might be best for someone else. I really think it's funny when a mac user gets offended when someone criticize an apple product and vice versa for pc users. Some people act like they own the company and take it as a personal attack. As to which is better, I don't care. I haven't bought a computer of any kind in years. I build all of my computers. I put in it what I want it to have, have it run what I want it to run, and have it do what I want it to do. Who can ask for more that that. If apple allowed me to do that with their products, I would be happy to own one.

Yea but they never will... because that's just how apple is lol tongue.gif. You have to use their products EXACTLY how they intend you to use them, or else it voids your warranty and you get absolutely no help from their support.

So, yeah, is the iBasso site back up yet or are they working on it still? 

post #25 of 31

I think they should have taken the opportunity to completely rejig their site - its a long way from being the worst online store in our little corner of audio, but it could definitely use a revamp.

Is the site down again??

 

 

post #27 of 31

^^ It's working fine for me.

post #28 of 31

It was down for awhile a day or two ago and everyone got an error message that stated that one didn't have permission to access the site.   iBasso was in the process of changing servers and now everything is working OK.   iBasso said that their website access and service should be much improved with the new server.

Kind of working, kind of not.  Last night, I just got a "system resource exceeded" error and the site wouldn't even open up.  Today, it opens, but then there is the error message.

 

???

Maybe they've been too busy designing new amps to keep their website up and running? After all, it's been a couple months now since they've released something new. That's slow for them!
