ever heard of a little thing called linux? I've been using custom builds now for over three years and I would NEVER ever go back. I spent over 1500$ on just my tower for my last build. That is just parts. So its not like I was trying to find a "cheap" way. I don't have no business. I am a stay at home mother and use it primarily for gaming, surfing, connecting, and email. Sorry, but I can't play Oblivion, Crysis, and Fallout 3 using a Mac operating system without some trickery. Also, I own an iPhone and I get so fed up with it some times. Safari constantly crashes, I have error messages I can't get rid of, I can't turn off simple options like when it auto-corrects my texts. Steve Jobs thinks he knows what is best for everyone instead of letting people think for themselves. I do still love my iPhone, though.
