yes I think I see what you are sharing. See, we have been Mac people for a number of years, but need now to take limited resources and decide to get a new computer. In recent times, not for personal pursuits, I have come to "accidentally" be using a PC. Frankly, it seems much more cost-effective and reliable than I had remembered the experience years earlier. So in good faith, I am trying to compare, especially in light of Windows 8 announcements and that I hear Apple post-Steve Jobs is having previously just about unheard of "reliability problems" actually reminding me of yesteryear's PCs...well, I am genuinely trying to figure this out -- again on a limited budget. Thanks for your patience and helpful sharing and all herein. For example, what someone earlier herein posted about MacBook Air USB problems; that was concerning, and helpful that the person posted it. That's exactly the kind of "consumer-practical" information we need. Thanks again to all.
