All i have to say, thats the difference between consumer products and enterprise grade products, and also between boutique products and"face value" products.

 what a fucking dumbass. he could have fixed that from apple for $100, then sold it and gotten something else. What a fucking ASSHOLE would do that kind of SHIT? if he has any money to waste, hey give it to me, cuz i don't. There are people that starve to death, while fuckers like him waste money. It is these kinds of things that makes me scared for the sanity of america. He does this shit and is PROUD??!?! I would me ashamed of myself if i did something like this.

I ran off to look for an IBM at lunch. Where can I get one? Oh that's right, they don't make laptops no more. GUess I should just shave my head.

lenovo.com - they are still considered one and the same even though they are 2 different companies.  Lenovo does the hardware and IBM does the support.

Thinkpad. We know what he meant.

The hinges break on a guy in the store who was checking it out. The clerk was like "uuhhh...you don't have to pay for that." I have an Acer 6920G, that I move around between 3 or 4 locations every day, and i just place it in a bookbag, and move location. Nothing is physically wrong with it.

I don't like Microsoft, I associate with it.

Man, even as a super mac hater, not even I would do that....

I likely will go ape like this on ours soon enough :)  At work we bought 10 Macbooks to loan to our clients when their Macbooks broke... within 1.5 years, 6 are now broken and not due to user error (ie video card dying, motherboard dying, etc)  We also ordered 40 Lenovo laptops... 1 of which is broken, and that was because a user accidentally cracked the screen.

That thing kind of put up a fight, though. It lasted at least two stabs before the screen went out.

I guess there's more than one way to slice an Apple.

I fear he may have voided his warranty..

On a side note, I like my Dell m1530's hinges.

The fact is, I have an IBM A30 Laptop that is now 7 years old and still running perfectly. No broken hinges, etc. It has outlasted ALL of my Apple Laptops and taken far more abuse.

 

While I love the Mac OS, I have nothing but contempt for Apple hardware.
