    The Official Apple Thread: Introducing the new, thinner, lighter...

    I thought about making a everything Apple thread so there's one thread for all Mac, iPod, iPhone and just about everything else Apple make!

    Share pictures of set up's, recent purchases, cool Applications for both iPhone and iMac and just generally chat to like minded Apple fans.

    I will start!

    I have a early '09 Aluminium Macbook, 2.4ghz, 4gb ram, 250gb hdd.
    I'm also running Snow Leopard which is the best OS ever in my opinion.

    I also have access to the Google Chrome developers build if anyone would like the link, just ask!

    For you Snow Leopard users, in case you didn't read my thread, there is a very dangerous glitch in the software that can cause all the data in your user account to be deleted.

    It happens by logging into the guest account and then trying to log back into a user account.

    Just be careful!

    Edit: Apparently it will delete the data on all the accounts. Do not log into the guest account.

    Apparently this only happens if you have done an upgrade from Leopard, I did a clean install so I'm out of the woods! But a nasty bug indeed!

    No way!

    Same with me, thats when Apple used to give you everything before they realised they were throwing money out of the window.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, but i remember getting the iPod, USB2 cable, Firewire Cable, Plug and possibly a desktop charging dock (might of dreamt that last accessory up but the rest I am sure about). Also got the usual Apple stickers, and iTunes on a CD :O Now that should go on eBay!

    Currently the Apple Store is down online, people are speculating there launching new iMacs, MacBooks and accessories including a new mouse and keyboard!!

    EDIT:

    There up.

    New iMacs with SD card slot (about time) also much bigger screens in a 16:9 format.

    MacBook: entry level MacBook has a unibody design, still made from plastic though, MacBook Pro style track pad.

    Magic Mouse: Multi gesture mouse, think of iPhone style control for your desktop mouse.

    Much better screen, not a fan of the wireless mouse and keyboard standard though . Good sizes though. I may think about buying one in the near future (been looking at macs for a while to get back into my photoshopping and such heh). As for the laptops I am impressed that they kept it at 999 dollars but would have liked to see a backlit keyboard. That would be the only reason I go with the 13 inch MacBook Pro over the new MacBook.

    Anyways the coolest thing they launched today was most definitely the mouse. It looks like it is kind of using the same technology as the multi-touch screen on the iPhones as well as the touch pads on their laptops. Very sleek.

    Damn for another couple thousand dollars I need to come up with to buy new stuff .

    Why is the macbook 999? This is a serious question, if people really were getting great deals like mac owners say they are this company would not be pooping money. Their GM is through the roof.

    All i'm saying is why is a machine with those parts so pricey? Apparently nobody can answer that. The number one thing i see when people ask about macs is "i hear they don't get viruses, maybe i should buy one." I don't think the 27 iMac is priced too high but this macbook is off the wall. And i'm not complaining, i'm asking a simple question that no one in the mac community can answer and have it be meaningful. The best company in the world makes some of their crap.

    If you compare what you get when you buy a mac compared to let's say an HP, you will find there isn't a huge differnce in price. Then the build quality is way better then average. And the software that comes pre-installed on a mac is pretty expensive if your looking for Windows alternatives.

    Not to mention that mac's are way more sexy then most "pc's"

    360DiedOnMe, I will try to answer your question, why are they so expensive for the parts used, I hope my answer satisfies and educates you.

    They are priced what they are for a number of reasons, the main reason in my opinion is the build quality. Go look at the Macbook Pro and please tell me if you know of a laptop that has that build quality, not just the aluminium casing but the little details. The battery indicator lights, the sleep light that glows through the casing etc.

    The iLife suite is without a doubt the most comprehensive suite of software that I own. It's free, I can edit music, video, pictures, make a web page all very easily. The video editing is great, it is non destructive so it's great if you are not a pro and worried about messing up on that important video.

    Apple have to price there computers like this, how else can they fund the research they put into not only computing, but the audio industry too. People will pay this amount of money for a Mac computer, Apple can justify it, if they needed to get the money from other products then we would all pay double for iPods and accessories be thankful to Mac owners as they bear the brunt.

    The great thing about a iMac is the software and hardware is engineered by the same company, it is designed to go together where Windows can be installed on any old machine.

    I work in electrical after sales for a major UK department store and I will post picture evidence of why I will never by a HP computer in my life, we call it the HP Tower. Picture will come soon.

    That HP is not too bad, but for that money in all seriousness consider a Mac. 6GB Ram, Windows can only use 3gb in 32Bit and 64Bit mode is pretty much useless unless you have 32Gb Ram. Thats my biggest gripe with people who say Mac's are so under specced. Truth is they're not. They are less resource hungry as Pc's, 2GB of Ram in a Mac is more than enough, they do not slow down at all I for one was sick of my Pc grinding to a hault after 12 months use. I have had my iMac desktop 2 years now and it is as good as day one.

    It's all to do with the OS and how it accesses the data. Defragmentation on a Windows Pc does help a bit, but with Mac's you don't have to do it at all because of how the data is saved.
