    Macs cost 2x the price of a PC with equivalent hardware on average today. If you are not a Windows Power User, try Ubuntu, which released its latest version last week. Macs are fine computers if you can afford them. The constant back and forth between Mac and PC stems from the different manufacturing paradigms that Apple and the PC industry employ. Apple’s strength is that they manufacture (almost) every part and peripheral on Macs. This means a leaner OS (they don’t have to optimize thousands of different drivers) and guaranteed stability. The down side is that they don’t get the benefits of economies of scale, making their gear quite expensive, and only average in terms of power. PC’s have parts manufactured by thousands of different companies. Windows has to have drivers to support an ocean of hardware components, making it larger and clunkier than OSX. However, competition and economies of scale drive the costs of these components down. This means that you can build a PC that’s as fast or faster than a Mac, for 1/2 the price. It also means your machine is upgradable, which is not the case with Mac. Both systems have advantages which are also disadvantages. As a power user, I’ve built my own PC, which is far more powerful than anything in Apple’s lineup, for USD$ 1,200 (Roughly the price of Apple’s lowest entry). I run Windows 7 and have no need for an antivirus. For my grandmother who really couldn’t be bothered to learn to use Windows safely, I got her a Mac, as she doesn’t have a need for a very powerful system and has the money to spend.

    Thanks for the link Gladius. And Russians on the boards? I’d like verification of some of the claims being made in the publication, specifically anti-western teaching in schools.

    DrCanuck: I find your comparison unfair. Iran is an Islamic Republic, by it’s own definition. The U.S. is a secular government that does not take orders from any religious sect. I believe you must mean that US policy is influenced by traditional christian values?

    Rekam: Eh? What?

    dtroutma: I find it difficult to believe that Iran wants nuclear power only. It is far cheaper for them to get their power from their own gas reserves. A nuclear reactor gives you access to the ability to create nuclear based weapons. I am not worried that Iran will use these weapons. They are far more valuable as a bargaining tool. I am worried that they may misplace a few and they end up in truly extremist hands. The US is not pushing for more weapons, your president just signed a deal with Russia to reduce your stockpiles.

    Putin’s eyes scare me. Anyone ever looked at them? Cold and dead.

    I think Cdward is correct. You folks are having some serious security problems between this and the massive web attack yesterday.
