I had to rename this thread since naughty words are not allowed on this board...
Anyway, my reply was:
Yep, sometimes I wonder why I\'m still sticking with the Mac...and then I remember Logic, Protools, Soundhack, Metasynth, Altiverb etc.
I have a PC at work and at home which I use for some occasional editing and Gigastudio, but for some reason it never feels as \'solid\' as a mac.
After a long search I found 1 dealer that still had an older model left...but he wouldn\'t give me a discount (the newer dual 1ghz was $100 cheaper than the older one he is offering), so I left it and looked around some more. I really hate having to go back to him tommorow and do his deal
I\'m sure there\'s an anorak somewhere at Apple who\'s got a funky pie chart that can explain the economic sense in crippling new macs this way, but for customers like me (and about anybody else who uses a mac for serious audio) it is a severe pain in the bottom. Why should I commit to a company that screws over it\'s own userbase and doesn\'t even support it\'s own operating system?
The worst thing is that despite all this crap I\'ll be buying that Mac tommorow :-\\
