Mac cases are actually very strong, and like most computers, will only
break if you hit them with a Sledgehammer.
True, then again so do my Chieftec cases. The thing I do love about my PowerMac is how easy it is to open up and access everything inside with the motherboard being mounted on the inside of the sidepanel.
The worst virus attack is the case where a
virus hits a Mac, only to be deflected to a Windows PC. True.
Eh, say what? Magical deflection powers?
Generally PC Manufacturers will only care about the GHz number on the
front, and Microsoft only care about tacking on more to the NT Kernel.
Apple dont do that.
Ofcourse not, that's why they've been screaming 'Ghz myth' for years while they were on PowerPC only to discover that the switch to Intel makes everything now run 'up to 5 times as fast', which is equal bull.
Really, I wish I could provide more, but once you've spent some time
using and learning the Mac, you'll see it really is better than a PC, end of
Granted, I love my Mac. But let's stick to facts please instead of this fiction.
There's no such thing as magically deflecting a virus to a windows pc and OsX is just as vulnerable as any other operating system. The big adventage it DOES have is that it's more secure by default.
Which is sort of the root (no pun intended) of all these discussions, if you're a computer newbie and you want a secure machine you're better off getting a Mac. But if like some of us have spent years with for example Linux or even Windows they can be just as secure. The problem with the latter is that you have to actually know what you're doing.
As for the actual topic; there are plenty of manufacturers copying Apple's style. Just take a look at for example AOpen with their Mini ripoff.
