Is the Mac a PC 2582
Mitch In my other reply to Znu I outlined my thinking on how back in the day clones were defined by software compatibility...
Here you'ver hit the nail on the head. Slade insists on calling Intel Macs "clones" as way to denigrate them. I.E. because they share processors in common with Windows machines, that Apple and Mac supporters can no longer justify looking on a Mac as "special" and that Apple can no longer justify their "high prices." This is really where Slade is going with this line of "reasoning." Don't bother to buy a Mac because its just the same as an Intel-based box that *I* can make you for much less than Apple will sell you one for. You may have noticed that all through this argument, Slade has constantly discounted the role that OSX plays in differentiating a Mac from a stand Windows PC. He wants desperately for Macs and PCs to be just the same for his own personal aggrandizement.
