Matt, I think it's YOU who needs to get real here. The name of the product explains it's intended market, it's the MacBook AIR. It was never envisioned for the uses you describe. It's market...

Actually that's only partly true. Sure you could transmit an embedded virus to a PC, if you somehow got it on your Mac, which is doubtful to begin with. However, the real point here is the virus...

Don't Do It! 2,759 Views / 57 Replies  
As others have pointed out already, you really do not need any anti-virus software for Mac. Your Mac can NOT spread virus's to a PC because they can't actually execute and do anything on the Mac...

Come on, you can't actually believe what you're saying. Apple has ALWAYS cared about making a profit, they just weren't very good at it for a while. They're a company in business to MAKE MONEY. ...

Can you tell me any good reason that anyone should "upgrade" from a Seagate 7200.9 to a 7200.10? That's a completely nebulous upgrade and basically a...

You're kidding right? The drive you get in any computer is the same type you can buy at any computer store. No better, no worse. MacGeek, you have some interesting ideas that just cost you extra...

MacGeek, do NOT plan on being able to take a drive out of your current Mac Pro and have it boot a new one with a different chipset. Apple includes...

Hmmm, if that's true I stand corrected. However that is the exact opposite result I have seen. I've worked in the IT industry for over 15 years and I've seen multiple iMacs, PowerBooks, etc. with...

In this country at least, laptops with external drives have been sales death, no one wants them. I know the ultra-portable market in Japan accepts it, but they've never caught on with Americans. ...

Um, not they didn't, slot loading drives physically can't handle mini optical discs, period. Think about it, there's no way the mechanism can handle it properly, just the nature of the beast

I completely support the OP right to express his opinions, however his "complaints" are so weak that I can easily see why people are making light of it. The confirmation button on shutdown is such a...

Has anyone actually tried formatting a large FAT32 disk? It works just fine. I've been using a 250gb HD formatted as FAT32 for a couple years as a cross platform backup drive. Never had a problem.

Um, where did you get this idea? There has been no artificial limit to HD sizes for a LONG time on the Mac platform, and especially not on a PowerMac G4. I've seen 300+GB drives in all sorts of...

Go with the VGA adapter, I can pretty much guarantee it will work. I have the same TV, but in the 32" version which runs at the same native res, and all my Macs look great on it. I use a 5 or 6...

I think what everyone has to realize is that this argument really isn't about what features you like or dislike. This is about Apple's Interface Guidelines. Yes, Apple has been breaking their own...
