From these recent posts it seems like apple computers are not well built and using them is a different experience from its heydays. I can't argue these points because I never had used an apple computer.

Anyway, I have already decided not to get an apple computer a few weeks ago. I am going to build my own desktop. The last desktop I've build was almost seven years ago.

I will of course try an apple computer someday. Thanks for the replies.

Agreed that putting linux on what essentioally is an over priced pc not a good investment, You are better off with an inexpensive white box pc or a used machine. Will say that I converted my old used g3 new world machines i bought cheap to run osx, but later installed linux to extend their ROI. Ironic part was I was using mostly open source software on them, so why pay for the os. Eventually used the parts for pc's and chumked the rest. As a side note, LTSP had support for netboot on version 4. It was wierd seeing diskless PPC G3's booting from a x86 based ltsp server.
