    Apple is only for fans, nothing but overpriced toys.

    There's no such thing as an overpriced toy. Just depends how good the toy is.

    Macs rock.

    Considering I paid a bit over $1500 for my G5 like 4 years ago, I know I've saved money. My son has had it at college for 2 years, so I bought a macbook, not one problem with either.

    I burned through 5 pc's in 10 years, the first one costing over 4k. The last, the cheapest, still over 2k. Overpriced macs? I think not.

    Mac's aren't nirvana, like some would have you believe. However, after going through 3 PCs in 18 months, this iMac has more than paid for itself. Plus, I don't have that awful Vista.

    And I love my iPod!

    I bought a Mac Book about 9 months ago, after never using anything but PCs before. It is only since using a Mac that I have come to realize how lousy Windows is. The frequent crashes now seem little more than a distant memory and I no longer have the constant concerns about spyware and viruses.

    Having seen how much I loved my Mac, my wife took the plunge 3 months ago with an iMac. She was a convert within a matter of days. No more miles of cable for all manner of peripherals - the only things that came out of the box were the iMac, mouse and keyboard. Up and running in 15 minutes.

    My Book was £1,200 (about $2,000 at the time), and my wife's iMac was $2,200. We agree we would have spent significantly more on PCs (including OS and 'Office' suite) and peripherals, while ultimately getting less out of them.

    IMO, Macs are better value, better to live with and infinitely more user friendly than PC/Windows. Oh, and my wife thinks they look cooler as well.

    I've used Mac quite a bit over the years (I had Apple before I had PCs). I prefer Windows. And I'd rather be in Linux than any of them.

    The video was hilarious. I like the predictive text sentences, but also how the price of the 20gig models was just under $3000, and next to it the 40gig version was over $9000.

    Then there was the customer who said he'd buy anything shiny and made by Apple, and that he liked how the e-mails said they came from a MacBook Wheel (or whatever it is called) so that people would know you had one.

    Priceless.

    And of course, the reporter at the end: "It remains to be seen how well the Macbook Wheel will be received in the business world where people use computers for actual work instead of just dicking around."

    Heh.
