Someone named iceynipples is calling me a waste of time. I told you to search the forums. I have posted on this topic countless times. However, since you are too lazy to search the forums I searched and found the old thread where I proved this to be true. I did an updated one about a month ago, though it wasn't in my thread so it was not really findable. http://www.computerforum.com/175469-if-you-insist-comparing-pc-mac-read-first.html You fail to do an actual comparison. People who think they are tech savvy and often don't understand how computers work on a basic level in and out, like to make blanketed statements and use misinformation to make their point. point in case: A Mac Pro isn't some assemble a bunch of parts off of newegg type computer. For one, it runs dual xeon processors. Each processor is going to cost you $800 to $1300 a piece. Next, it uses ECC memory, because it is meant to do super high end work. Things like audio/video rendering, research crunching, high end calculations and so forth. It isn't meant for some teenager to play video games on. You say you can build a higher spec computer than a Mac Pro for half the price? Let us see you do it. Again, you aren't comparing spec for spec, part for part, feature to feature. You will be hard pressed to find a dual xeon work station cheaper than a Mac Pro, and you will find it virtually impossible to build one. I have backed up my claims with thought out logical arguments, breaking things down to the minimum to compare them. Ultimately I do not think a PC and a Mac are comparable, as they are different systems all together. However, I do think if you are going to compare them, you should at least break everything down and compare them in a manner that is an actual comparison. So, you build a desktop cheaper than an iMac and a Mac Pro then. Prove me wrong. Remember though you gotta do a full comparison of everything to make it an actual comparison.
