  1. MacBookPro = beachballs and Dock bounces

    I see no beachballs on my 3 year old duallie 2, RAID O as boot, 5 GB of RAM, oh you can’t put more than 2 GB in your MBP? hehehehe.

    Buffering to the hard drive all the time are you, beachball, work, beachball, work. LOL

    Can I record UNCOMPRESSED HD, oh yes I can. I get 165 glorious MB per second writes. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

    No, I’m afraid we are quite safe from your FRIENDS here.

    Commander, you may fire at will.

  2. Look

    Dont get me wrong, I’m not saying the MBP is a bad computer, I’m just saying it’s not worth the $4500 to make it something one can use.

    My argument is it’s better to get a monster Quad which is expandable at the same price of $4500 and then get a light powered Mac for the portable use.

    I have seen SO MANY MacHeads take their Powerbooks and turn them into desktop machines, they realized too late that should have gotten a PowerMac instead because 99% of the time the PowerBook sits on their desk!!!

    And contrary to what most think, the PowerMac G5 is semi portable, provided you have the right metal foam case to carry it in.

    Professional road editors do it all the time, in a few minutes they are all set up on their PowerMac Quad and cranking video.

    One guy I know has modified his metal case so he doesn’t have to take the PowerMac G5 out of it!!!!

    The 30 ” monitor is attached to the lid of a case!!! and the keyboard/mouse is in the bottom part!!!

    now that’s a video road man!

    So you see the MPB is not the optimal choice for the money that’s all I’m trying to say.

  3. <i>MBP’s start at $1999…</b>

    Have you ever used a $1999 MBP?

    5400 RPM slow pig of a hard drive and 512K of RAM?

    MPB 17 2GB, 7,200 RPM, AppleCare = $3448 pre tax US

    Quad G5stock, AppleCare =$3548 pre tax US

    The Quad is twice as powerful and many times more expandable

    1: up to 16GB of RAM

    2: upgrade video card, 3D gaming

    3: larger drives and faster 10,000 RPM SATA drives, SCSI and Fiberchannel too. RAID O as boot. (zoom!)

    4: upgrade monitor to 30″, many 30″ers if you want.

    5: 64 bit processors, not 32 bit like MBP Core duo’s.

    I had Apple laptops for many years and finally wised up to the scam.

  4. Let’s stop feeding the troll, shall we. It seems to give him a belly ache.

    Life lesson: Buy what you want and be happy with it. And, ignore the tool. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”cheese” style=”border:0;” />

  5. Let me break down the math for you.

    It’s cheaper in the long run to upgrade a Quad over it’s 5-7 year lifespan than it is to replace a MBP every 2-3 years.

    With the Quad one better weathers software upgrades from hobbling their machines.

    Slap in more RAM and faster drives and she zips.

    Since both a MBP and a Quad are about the same price, the value is with the Quad.

    Lowest yearly TCO. Plus the Quad is twice as productive until the MBP performance comes up, if it ever can. (heat problems)

  6. I use MBP’s all day long for video production…they are becoming major workhorses for me, and providing a good living.

    Holy crap, I haven’t worked that cheap in ages. No wonder your busting yo ass.

    Man I just negotiated a $20,000 insurance construction repair job, all I really needed was a MB and Appleworks, but I guess it’s overkill I used my duallie 2 and 30″

    But then I guess for what you do a MBP is underkill, hahaha ain’t life funny like that?
