Cecil, you need to go post that PM screen cap, or admit that you lied about it. Until you can be an adult and step up to the plate on that issue, STFU.
As for the rest, I have backed up ALL of my arguements with clear explanations, and links and reviews to various sites, in addition to the information brought in by other people, who agree with me.
What Cecil and Mike brought to the table were personal insults(lamely executed I might add), and nothing of substance, and after many rounds, when their blind brand loyalty and ignorance on the topic demands that I call them an idiot or moron, they then try to use that against me to help their dead-in-the-water argument.
You can call me a "kid working at Taco-Bell living in my parent's basement playing Everquest" all you want, but the fact is that I am 31, divorced and with a great girl now, buying a house, getting a new 2004 Impala LS this week, and get a nice weekly paycheck plus commissions. In fact, today's paycheck/commissions was just over $6,400 before Uncle Sam got ahold of me, so if I really wanted a G5, I could go walk out and pay cash for their top of the line model with ease right this minute, have plenty of money left over and I still have two more paychecks coming this month.
I can buy whatever kind of PC I want, whenever I want it, and if the G5 was indeed the best out there and did what I needed it to do, it would be sitting here on my desk without another thought. Can you make the same claim? Probably not.
So please, enough with the stupid Taco-Bell references, it makes you look very petty... jealous even.
