    Personally, I really hate Apple rumours.. But, I'm a big, big AMD fanboy, and this one, sure interests me.. Apple is not happy with Intel and NVIDIA due to their conflict over the chipsets.. Moreover, in the red corner, AMD is doing wonders with their onboard and the dedicated GPUs.. Naturally, Apple has been eying that for quite a while now.. Read the full article for complete info..

    Sad apple. Getting less and less exclusive and cheaper to build, but robbing of customers with the same premium.

    Those things obviously don't matter. Just pin pointing "non real world things".

    So, now listen from someone who isn't a fanboy. Mac OS X is the best operating system around if you can afford it. It's like using a Linux with better applications, more productivity, less hassles and of course less bugs. Terminal commands are exactly the same. :D "sudo rm -rf" ;) People forget that Mac OS X is actually a Unix-like OS.

    I'm using all the Operating Systems on a regular basis, so I consider myself a better judge than the fanboys and the anti-fanboys.

    Dude.. I've also used all the operating systems.. I had two HDDs running Windows 7, Mac OS X, Linux, FreeBSD and Solaris.. trust me.. Mac OS X is a disgrace to the legacy of UNIX and to the culture of the FOSS.. They take a lot from the FOSS community and they don't give back anything.. there is no support of ODF in the iWorks suite, no Ogg Vorbis and FLAC support in iTunes and no Ogg Theora support in Quicktime...

    Still quite secure for an average user out there. Complacency of OS X users might cause problems tho :p

    True that. Apple has only its own vested interest in its mind. OS X breaks UNIX philosophy, takes everything from FOSS giving back little, in fact they opposed Ogg Theora as a standard in <video> tags in HTML 5 and Safari doesn't even support Theora with it when FF, Chrome, and (later) Opera will do.
    Though Mac OS X, seems to be as an OS pretty good, that I wont take away.

    I guess we should leave it there. This is an AMD topic, not Apple one tbf. :D
