Well, arch, it's nice to know what can't be done with a mac. Here's what I don't like about macs: 1) they are artificially expensive (built in the same FoxCon factory as HP's, Toshibas, Dells and other Windows machines; 2) the way so many fans (perhaps not you) absolutely MUST have the latest model even if their current phone or pad or computer just because it's new and not because it will do what needs to be done any better; 3) foisting features on their fans in beta test form (e.g., Siri and their new mapping app).

Oh, and let's not forget "You're holding your iPhone wrong."

Actually, I would expect Windows users to talk more than Mac aficionados (feel free to look that up, k), what else are they going to do while their computer is rebooting?

You're behind the times. My three Windows machines generally only are rebooted after installing updates or new software or when I go someplace with my laptop, but even then I generally put it into hibernation rather than switching it off. Firewalls constantly asking me to approve installing .dll's and things like that are a far bigger annoyance.

RE: "a far bigger annoyance" - bigger than you?

Possibly bigger than him, but not bigger than the $15,000 price tag on a mac pro, many of the components of which are outdated.  For instance, the xeon processors, the AMD 5770 (although apple seems not to have realised that AMD absorbed ATI because they still call the cards ATI cards), and the 1333MHz ram.  By the way, apple definitely knows how to price things high, upgrading the ram on the mac pro to 64gb costs $1950, and it is only 1333MHz ram, whereas I can buy 64gb of 1600MHz ram for $1480 less here: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820239276 plus that ram doesn't take up all eight slots on the motherboard.

Oh and you are probably thinking the mac pro isn't 15 grand, but go to the buy now page, and see how much the 12 core version costs fully maxed out, it is indeed more than 15 grand.
