First up was EVGA’s first motherboard utilizing the Lynnfield processor, the P55 and boasting six SATA 3.0 Gbps ports, Gigabit Ethernet, 7.1 channel audio, a Flash memory slot, a debug LED, and power, reset and clear CMOS buttons. The company also showed off its Classified motherboard, which is known for its improved overclocking capabilities.
Next up EVGA showed us the GTX 295 CO-OP Edition, which is a GeForce 295 on a single PCB, with a central fan pushing air in two directions. The card is also optimized for liquid cooling. Alongside that, EVGA displayed the GTX 285 Mac Edition.
Dunno what it might mean.
And as for Mac pricing....honestly, what you pay for is what you get. Paying for a Mac can save you tons of money for services, IF you are a standard user and do not know how to solve your own problems. Where as for users like *most* Tom's users, we participate in a tech forum and can get our own help, or already know how to fix it.
Really: Mac=Mainstream and simply works
Windows (mostly Vista)= For a non-standard user who can fix their own problems, or pay for tech support quite frequently. Or maintain it with multiple cleaning wizards and such.
And don't argue the whole "But Vista doesn't matter, XP is better" Because XP is being phased out for Windows 7, Windows 7 will have XP in the background for those programs that need it, which eliminates the need for XP, so don't hold on to it.
Mac as in Macintosh?
your 'simply work's arguement has been put down many times. so i won't even bother touching it... it's wrong and that's it.
your ending arguement goes against your whole apparent point... that people want what works. and for a great many, xp just does the job.
these notions that windows is somehow unable to do the tasks a mac can do without crashing are very lame. don't try to act superior or claim your choice of toy is superior because you're either too lazy or just plain inept and can't be bothered to learn how to properly use a system.
You are not alone.
