Of course computers without stand-alone video cards won't perform very well either.

    You are somewhat correct, although many users often buy computers by certain brands because of the software bundled with the computer. Advanced users will obviously just install their own operating system and whatnot, but many people are lured to a computer because of the software packaging - and the different brands are quite different in this respect. There are higher quality parts used by certain companies as well, but I agree that more or less they are the same computer hardware wise.

Apple products always cost more and underperform their leading competitors. Ipods aren't as good as MP3 players from Creative Labs and others. Iphones aren't as good as the latest Blackberries. Try them out head to head and I am sure you will agree. Apple is all about trendy marketing, sleek design and peer pressure.
    As a consumer, I think it's great that Apple is beginning to sell more in the market. This will create a more competitive market and spurn innovation, lower prices, all that crap. It's the same reason I wish AMD would make a comeback as I feel Intel might be the only major player here in a year or so.

    I was thinking the same thing when they started putting Intel chips in Macs. I don't like anybody having a monopoly on something. I've been a Mac person for years and I've noticed that regarding software availability, things are better now than they've ever been. Every piece of software I've wanted recently has a Mac version and there is some software that is frankly better than its counterpart for Windows. One thing I can't get anymore is IE, but who wants that piece of junk anyway.
