  • I agree. It still does anger me that Microsoft was allowed to copy the Mac OS in version after version and get away with it. They do very little in the way of innovation and a whole lot of copying. It's wrong that they get away with it. At the same time Macs should cost less. Yes, the R&D;that makes Macs so great does cost money and I am willing to pay a bit more for a Mac, but It's really difficult for me to afford the prices that Apple charges. So while I have an iMac, unfortunately my laptop is a Gateway (but it has a 17" screen and I payed $499 for it (refurbished) from Tiger Direct). I'd love to have a Macbook.

    Microsoft is Right About the Cost of Macs
  • I'm sure that Apple would love to release a tablet. But Apple will not release a tablet until alternatives to LCD become more available and lower in cost. When a thinner, more durable and energy efficient alternative to lcd's is feasible (maybe oled), then they will release a touch-screen tablet. I think they are waiting for the technology to allow them to make a thin durable tablet - one that can be tossed around without worry - that has a screen about the size of an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper- and that will have a good battery life and low-enough cost.
