[quote name='cberry']This is either a response to number 9, or a possible 11 for the "things we love..." column. Anyway, having strict hardware control is of incredible benefit to IT. We can create one (two if you count G4's) deploy image(s) with 90% of user setup done, copy it to hardware, and the thing boots. Even if you run Windows in Boot Camp, because the hardware uses a finite number of high quality components, all with well written drivers, Windows is screaming fast. Try that with other manufacturers who seem to put what's cheapest that day in their machines so even they have trouble keeping track of drivers. This doesn't even consider the other manageability features available for Macs - Apple Remote Desktop, Filewave., etc. Then there's the intuitive user interface (cuts down on training investment), wise software engineering, and, so far, freeedom from viruses. Add that troubleshooting a Mac problem on average takes 1/10 the time as troubleshooting a Windows client, and you have lean IT!Dual core fool core.Gimme a freakin break. I can get an ASUS Motherboard with 2 64 slots and stack my processing speed.It'll out perform any freakin Mac on the face of this planet.I can get an ATI card that makes anything Apple puts out to shame. And how big can you go in HD? Not NEARLY as big as WE can go in a MS system I think that the latest HD to come out is a TB??? On top of that if we're serious webbies don't you think that we have a back up drive to keep every important file locked up safe and sound? Our sound cards beat ANYTHING that Apple puts out. Our program availabillity is send to NONE and if something breaks we can fix it ourselves with little need of a Liscenced Apple dealer.My ex had a Mac and I hated that friggin thing. She was always comin to me to fix her problems with it. Even after we split up.And I hate the myth that you don't get viruses on a Mac. The hell you don't. If you're in a chat room you're just as vulnerable as the rest of us. You don't know what little turd hacker out there has your system.And even if they don't run macs, that's gotta tell you the performance on those things SUCK. And I hate usin that term. But in this case I'll make a reasonable exception. MACS SUCK go out and get yourselves a REAL computer. Quit playin at it.
