    Need Everything, $5K, What to buy?

    Hi - I need a whole new HT setup for a newly renovated room. Basement area with no windows. I'm leaning towards a Panasonic 65" plasma so that leaves around $3,000 for receiver, 5.1 speaker setup, blu-ray, Tivo. Naturally, I wouldn't mind spending less. I haven't bought any new gear...

    Will Apple ever make a "normal" Mac?

    Wait. A Mac user sends jpgs and the Windows machine magically coverts them to GIFs and corrupts them and thats a Mac problem? I've worked in a Mac/Windows world for 17 years and have never seen that.

    Networking a Mac and a PC

    I'm assuming you have a shared folder or volume on the PC. If you do, then on the mac, you click the menu item "Go > Connect to Server" and type in: smb://IP.of.the.PC/SharedFolderName/ and type in the PC username and password. Conversely, you can turn on Windows Sharing on the mac by...

    What are the real elements that separate a MAC from a PC?

    I gotcha. I wouldn't say that's a business need however. That's more a specialized need. You might want to check out MailTemplate for Apple Mail http://mailtemplate.mactank.com/

    Question - What exactly does Outlook do that makes it for "business use." Sorry, but this comment was funny considering all the "business" people I know who use Macs. I saw a reference to "stationary" and "fonts." I'm at a loss.

    I respectfully disagree. I much prefer Safari over Firefox.

    Will Apple ever make a "normal" Mac?

    Yep. I was just thinking the other day that the affinity for "upgrading" computers is slowly dying off. Upgrading used to be important when computers cost $2500. Apple makes it easy to updgrade the RAM and add external peripherals. In the end, thats what consumers need.

    What are the real elements that separate a MAC from a PC?

    Why can't you? I use a MacBook Pro which can dual boot Windows XP and MacOS X. The only thing I can see is that if you work in IT and need a serial port to work with switches or something.

    Will Apple ever make a "normal" Mac?

    I'm not sure what is wrong with the iMacs? 1.83GHz, 2.0GHz, 2.16GHz or 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, lots of ram and drive space, NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GT How is this not a mid level machine? I use a $3000 MacPro at work but have a 20" iMac at home.
