Apple was the first to put a track pad in front of the keyboard. The industry followed suite.

I hav Opera on my iPad but I never use it, because I don't like the way it works. I do have these other alternative browsers: Terra, PerfectBrowser, and Mercury.
So if there are numerous web browsers on iOS, and there are not rendering the way Opera is, then why no Firefox of Chrome yet?
Mac OS X may have been late to the 'party' for 64-bit, but in good Apple fashion, it was done right. Windows 7 supports up to 198GB memory. Why the artificial limitation? If it is truely 64-bit great as you think, it should be like Apple's Snow Leopard. which supported 16TB memory. Now we have Lion, with better security to finish off what is truely the worlds most advanced OS.
If they did a study on which laptops you are less likely to lose your data, my guess is the Apple laptops will come out on top. PC's are vulnerable to viruses that attack the data. Also, all Apple laptops have motion detection to disconnect the head from the drive in the event of an abrupt jerk or falling motion - this prevents data loss or corruption of the drive. Also, the Apple laptops power cord has a magnetic lock which disconnects if someone trips over it.
"Only one thing worse than rubbish dell non standard systems... is buying an even more proprietary system like a Mac. Even worse."
Makes me wonder what kind of car this guy drives? Maybe a Ford, the replacement parts are still the easiest to get, right?
Does he only use Linux and free stuff on his pc? The Mac OS is far more open and friendlier to open standards than is Windows.
What's the point of stating "$2000 operating costs" as if that is something unique to an iPhone? Other smart phones will be just as much operating costs over a two year period - most will have more. If you have a gripe about being locked into a two year contract, then just say it - don't beat about the bush with hyperbole.
