    when it is on, it is monitored so the fans spin at a required speed, when it was on with the cover off, you could see them spin at very very low rpms, and then speed up when the proc was used....very nice.....pcs do this to, just not to this level of quiet.

I harassed a best buy employee the other day, and made him take the cover off a g5 and let me look around inside, they are clean, i mean, not this hobeled together mess that is the pc, this was clean and functional....very envious.

    that video is awsome, and thats all i have to say about that.

    OSX is quite nice, used it a couple of times at school. I still like my pc.

    I've been a mac user for about 4 years now, and I must say, With OS X, Apple did themselves a huge favor.
    I d OS 9, it was crap. But the darwin core to OS X is great, and It makes Runnning/porting linux apps easy as cake.

    I'm hardly the average user and I haven't owned a Mac since my 512e, but I'm thinking about getting a PowerBook. It's just that they are sexy as hell and look good with Hugo Boss and DKNY. If Apple would toss out that crap ass interface, add another button to the mouse, and give me a term right away I'd buy one right now.

    OSX based off of BSD kernel...Yep, makes sense why they are back in the game.

    Now only if Apple would ease up on the price, I would be apt to buy one. Really would like to get one of the rack mounts in my 42U, all the other servers seem lonly without one! But at $2000, I can't justify the cost.

    the OS has always been user friendly. the macs started picking up with the introduction of the imacs. it was the new appealing styling that the old performa's lacked.....
    now people are willing to pay a little more for the hardware in trade for something....style!

    lets face it, the average new computer buyer has no clue as to what they are buying. ie. the OS doesnt matter in the slightest.

    yes, osX is tight, but it's hardly the reason that they are sellin like hot cakes.... at least, not for the average users....

    I first saw that about 8 months ago, and its still funny to this day.

    I have to say though, macs are easy as shit to manage. When I was doing work on school computers during 8th grade, we had a mac that was crashing on boot. To fix the problem, our schools IT guy had me drag all the startup extensions out of the system folder, and systematically drop them back in, then restart to narrow down the one that was causing the problem. When found, we just replaced it with the same file from another machine.

    Although I have always disliked macs from a user point of view, they are heaven for admins. That and OSX gave me a completely different view point on them, Apple did a good job on it.
