    Sounds like revenge for all those Android lawsuits Apple filed. ;)

    They also recently quit supporting OS X 10.5... Sounds like google doesn't give a crap about Mac/Apple users.

    Crappy apple drivers? I am not surprised.
    More like apple changed something a long time ago and Google doesn't want to spend the resources to update old platforms, get over it. If you buy mac, then you know that your system is going to be obsolete in a year or 2.

    If you buy any computer its going to be obsolete in 2 years. The thing is, a PC laptop is essentially worthless after 2 years, a Mac laptop is still worth quite a bit.

    Yes, the sheeple keep the value higher than it should be. But when I say obsolete, I mean it is no longer supported and cannot be upgraded to keep up. A PC laptop (like my 2 year old) isn't yet "obsolete", it is just underpowered (yet still up to date).
