Apple's efforts on returning to profitability, Jobs immediately terminated a number of projects such as Newton, Cyberdog, and OpenDoc. In the coming months, many employees developed a fear of encountering Jobs while riding in the elevator, "afraid that they might not have a job when the doors opened. The reality was that Jobs's summary executions were rare, but a handful of victims was enough to terrorize a whole company."[

and i found that it wasn't over drug abuse it was poor sales(kind of like now) but he did have a drug addiction when growing up you need to research your history.

The Mac OS doesn't try to emulate DX9. It uses OpenGL. Completely separate engines.

Apple announced Steve's removal, along with the first quarterly loss in their history as well as significant layoffs, on Friday, May 31, 1985.

The weak sales were beginning to put pressure on the relationship between Steve Jobs and John Sculley for the very first time.

Quote:

After hearing about the pioneering GUI technology being developed at Xerox PARC from former Xerox employees like Raskin, Jobs negotiated a visit to see the Xerox Alto computer and Smalltalk development tools in exchange for Apple stock options.

Apple, IBM and Microsoft used many of Xerox's ideas to develop IBMs Common User Access specifications that formed the basis of the user interface found in Microsoft Windows, IBM OS/2 Presentation Manager, and the Unix Motif toolkit and window manager.

How is the Air supposed to compete with the XPS series? Where did you even get that idea? The Air is aimed towards travelers, while the Pro is aimed at the XPS series.

It was the 70's. What did you expect?

You need to get your facts straight before calling someone ignorant. If you feel so strongly about your posts, why did you edit them?

I think Apple makes great products, as with Dell, HP and other computer manufactures. It bugs me when people make claims without backing them up, simply based on stereotypes of a company. Yeah, there are overzealous Mac fans, but you need to look beyond that to get the correct information. People like ace777 like to spread information based on misconceptions.

Sorry for ruining your thread D88, but this guy kept going on about it.

hmm, well things are still up in the air for me about Apple computers but I think I have read enough opinions about them so far to make some good judgments.

and as far as arguing in this thread, I was more just looking for opinions that were in favour of different brands rather than knocking on others so let's not have this completely turn into an Apple vs PC thread.

I don’t think it was necessarily heading towards the whole PC vs Mac debate, as it was simply clarifying someone’s misinformation.

What are you looking to do with this notebook? College? I'll could offer some good suggestions.

Yeah I will be taking notes with it at university, will do some programming on it, of course internet browsing, msn, etc. The fact that i wont be doing any gaming on it lowers the price a lot. I don't really need a lot of storage because I can offload things onto my desktop computer. I would prefer a fast laptop though, probably core 2 duo and 2GB of memory.

and also, i will be transporting it a lot because, as i already mentioned, I have a desktop so a notebook will not be a desktop replacement.

What will be your budget? I know there’s some Lenovo Thinkpads that could suit you.

Do some research on the Thinkpad X61. It’s an ultra portable notebook with excellent battery life, if you configure it with a nine cell battery. It also comes with a durable case, perfect for campus life.

i would like to keep things relatively cheap so no more than $1500CDN for sure.

and I looked at the X61 but I don't like that it only has the trackpoint. I've used that before and really didnt like it.
