    And to answer your other question:

    Yes, i do know they cost more. The operating system is normally what makes the computer cost so damn much. With Dell, HP, etc when you buy the computer, you get so&so operating system with it free. Not with Apple - you're paying the price for the OS in the cost of the entire computer.

    I get the bag and flip it and tumble it
    Straight out the lot, 300 cash
    And the car came with a blunt in it
    Lil mama a thot, and she got ass
    And she gon' fuck up a bag

    In Italy, got two foreign hoes, they DM me
    Drop the top when it's cold
    But you feel the heat
    Be real with me, just be real with me
    Eat it up like it's a feast
    They say the dope on fleek

    Then the OS is so damn pricey. iMacs are prolly 2x as expensive as normal PCs. And if you build your own PC you can get it even cheaper than you would at Dell, HP... and you can use Mac-compatible hardware. What's there to lose by buying a PC /

    Since I'm a student I can't get paid for my work as a sysop, so I was given a choice of laptops they offer. More or less it came down to a choice between a sucky HP, decent 15" media IBM and an Air (headmaster and school director have a mac fetish and they're getting iMacs all over the school). I don't need a desktop replacement laptop, so I chose the Air (I hope it's the last gen one ). /

(Just the DVD drive and a blank, formatted hard drive WITH NO FILE SYSTEM were left with the motherboard and processor, with some fans. You have to remove it in case it isn't compatible with the OS.) Go into bios and set it to boot from your DVD drive first. It should start loading the installation. there should be a bar on the top of the screen, look for something along the lines of "disk utility". Format the drive again if needed and partition it. (Select "1 partition". It will still be seen as 1 drive with the same amount of space, but it will get it set up with the proper file system) Install OS X. When that is done it should restart and get stuck at a gray screen with the Apple logo. Shut down you PC. restart it, go into bios and make sure it is still set to boot from the DVD/CD drive first. Insert the iBoot ATI disk and exit bios (Save and exit if you had to change it again.) It should boot up into a menu, select the drive with the name you gave the partition. It should boot up, but DON'T REMOVE THE CD WHILE IN OS X! The next step is to replace the rest of your hardware (Except the hard drive you use for windows.) find mac compatible drivers for all of your hardware. (You may not find them at all.)

    If you want windows back, just shutdown your PC and remove the boot ATI disk, and put the hard drive with windows installed back in and turn your PC back on.
    ...
    You got lucky that you did a Vanilla install.

    Half the time people need a hacked kernel, and it's more complicated than it seems like.

    And once you're in OS X you can remove the setup DVD.

    Next, you're supposed to use Mac OS Extended (Journaled) file System (HFS+).

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of the Air.
    It's like a big-ass Mac netbook.
    Very limited, and thin.

    I don't care..
    I can afford it.


    And technically, yes you can easily upgrade.
    it's just not as common like upgrading PC's.

    iMac is easy, simply unscrew the back off and you can access the RAM/HDD in a Snap.

    Mac Pro is easy as hell too, it's also in a case and has a BIT different layout, but it's self explanatory.

    Laptops, MacBook and MacBook Pro are just like other laptops to upgrade.

    The only problem for ugprading Apple computers is that there parts are expensive (not for me tee hee)

    my dad makes 400+K per year.
    we can fford it.

    Why are your parts so..uneven.

    3GB of RAM :\.

    And I never knew they made hard disks in 450.

    nForce 430.
    You can install Snow Leopard on that.
    I've got a SL Hackintosh machine on nForce 430, everything works flawlessly (IDE SATA Sound Reboot Sleep Shutdown Ethernet USB WiFi Bluetooth)
