Apple positions its computers as cutting edge in the personal computing marketing place. But I think they suck. Sure they are pretty, and girls like all the different colors they come in, but otherwise they are elitist, expensive and not much more reliable than any other (much cheaper) computer. You can pretty much run only Jobs (aka The Fuehrer) approved software on them, and when you ask whether you could change this or that, or run this piece of software on it you commonly hear "But you don't need to, Apple thought of everything. There is nothing else that you should require, Apple thought of everything".
