For that sort of comparison then comparing Macs to any other
desktop is not possible and is its own category of hardware. I can buy
2-3 equivalent memory/cpu/video ASUS systems for a Macbook.
Coo, we might need new computers for the GNOME events box. Can you
point me to the 250$ equivalent for those:
not be as well engineered or as pretty but they are functional and do
allow me to change out memory and disks much more easily than a Mac.
Does that mean we shouldn't compare them for working? If we can't then
we really need to make this a focus early on in a release with people
wanting it helping out.. <hint, hint>
They work well enough. We have people doing work upstream and downstream
trying to make them work better. Except that we don't spend our time
continuous testing the installer on hardware that we might only have one
: I hate those "the Macs are too expensive/proprietary/whatever" comments.
Cool, don't buy them, don't use them, but there are plenty of other crapola
hardware to go around in the non-Mac computers we support, and you just don't
see the amount of work done upstream for the undocumented ACPI devices
to make a single button work on your laptop.
