    Not sure what "freedom" you mean? When I was doing PC repair, few upgraded (upgrading was buying a new box) beyond a hard drive or RAM. Few ran anything other than Windows and the canned apps that came with the machine. So no real "freedom" there.
    It all depends what you want the machine to do. If your into gaming your gonna get the high end video card and lots of RAM good sound card huge HDD, but if you just have it for email and documents why buy a Mac if you don't want to spend the money? I am on my computer all the time so when I buy a computer I need something that will last 3 or 4 years that is Always on except when I have to restart cuz of windows "update" than I buy another 1. My dell is 2 years old so in about 2009 I will purchase a Mac

    The gamers I know are mainly either console or PC and pump their $$ into one or the other. A few are both, but mainly they pick a platform.

    I still have a 2002 iMac that is in use by my Dad and it was my main computer (photo, video editing, Internet stuff, everything but games) up until I got my Powerbook 2 years ago. It runs the latest OS perfectly and has been an all around great computer. It just keeps on chugging along.

    My friend has an iMac from 2000 and it still runs distant for having dial up modem. That is the exact reason I am buying a Mac they last long

    Mitch wheres that proof buddy? www.teamxbox.com has posted an article saying 65nm chips went into production March of this year so it should be a few weeks before we see 360's (at least elites) with the updated chip.

    I think your 2008 estimate was just that

    plans to start manufacturing a 65-nm version of the Xbox 360 CPU this year.

    Thats what it says in the article above. but for the 360 at least its not going to be in a couple weeks I predict more like late summer early fall. Maybe this will help prevent the over heating and red ring of death

    To quote the article: "IBM announced today it has started production of a 65-nanometer version of the Cell Broadband Engine, an improvement on the current 90-nanometer manufacturing process."

    And the day the article was posted was March 13th, so that would mean just under a month of production. I wouldnt be surprised if the 2nd batch of elites had this chip in there
    TRUE Nintendo fanboys should own an Xbox 360 just so you can play the third installment of Banjo and Kazooie

    Of course microsoft is arrogant..! Not quite as arrogant as Sony in terms of the games/entertainment side.

    But its probably one of the most arrogant (in terms of PR) companies ever to exist.
