I guess this goes well, when you buy laptops, but not PCs. We all know building a PC is far much better and it's cheaper too.

Its hard to bring your desktop with you to class though...

To bad MS doesn't roll the date back, as I just took delivery of my new Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 420S laptop. Do not need a new console, but I would take it and sell to on craigslist.

Sorry, in this case the Mac/iPod wins!! OEM PCs require too much initial maintenance, and the 4GB 360, needs a lot of work to be fully functional. (No HDD, no online, no backwards compatibility.) plus you need a TV!

Seriously, When are you mac tards going to shut up and quit spouting the same worthless drivel we have heard for 20 years now. OEM PCs are pretty much plug and play these days. There is no real initial set up, unless you include stuff like choosing your time zone. You can point fingers and claim PCs require all this maintenance or that they are too hard to use, but it doesn't make you sound better, it just makes you sound like a mentally challenged loud mouth that can't use a simple machine.

Do not know where you get your info, but the 4GB model has integrated WiFi, so you can get online. For $60, you can purchase a MS 250GB HDD to expand storage capacity, plus you can use the USB ports on it for any external HDD, which it will recognize. So, what work does it need to be fucntional? Maybe to someone like you who is an Apple brain challenged tard, then yea, you are right. But for a typical PC user, who actually knows how to upgrade, and build thier own systems, this is a no brainer (come to think of it, it should fit right in with you no brain Mac tards too)

And for those of us who prefer to build our systems rather than buy a boxed POS, no love . . .

Kinda of an oxymoron, isn't it?  Buy a PC for school, but here's an XBox so you can skip classes and play games.

I will take my mac and I love itunes. However do not call me a fanboy I own a droid incredible and a acer a500 tablet. Plus I am a pc gammer so do not care about getting an xbox.
