Hi All!! I have a little "debate" here. One of my friends bought a new iMac laptop. I asked him why did he buy a mac when he could get one of the new HP laptops. He told me that the iMac was faster and so, besides it's so nice an so beautifull... whatever. My question is, if you ask anyone that uses a mac, specially graphic designers and video editors, they'll tell you that his mac can beat my lousy windows pc without taking a sweat.... but is it a myht or is it propaganda? Take this 2 links http://www.apple.com/powermac/specs.html http://www.digitalvideoediting.com/cgi-bin/getframeletter.cgi?/2002/11_nov/reviews/cw_macvspciii.htm The first one is the homesite of the new PowerPC G4, dual 1.45 CPU. The second one is a comparision of that same $3,600 Powerpc with the $2,964 Dell Precision Workstation 350. That confuses me. Apple's website show some sort of benchmark saying the apple pc is 30% faster than Dell Dimension 8250... Now really, this is not about being mac or being pc, it's about truth. Is Apple lying to people and really selling nice cases and eye candy or is really Machintosh an option comparing it with the pc you could build up with the same price tag?? Just waiting to hear your opinions.
