That's a quality post?

In any case, the answer is likely "yes" because:

- it has ports, so it'll connect to everything,
- You can set it up for multiple-boot, so it can run darn near everything

I'm pretty sure there are 90% of people use PC's versus Unix or Mac. So you have less chance getting a virus, but you can still get a virus.

Check it out. The magic mouse is defying gravity on the picture. It's just floating on the side of the display. It truly is magical. Do you believe in magic? I bet you do now that you have seen this

Was about to say, I just built a PC with an 8 core CPU, same video card but with 4 times video memory, 4 times the RAM and 4 times the HDD space for less. Even if you add in the 25" LCD I got from here last year that I re-used, it still comes in under this.

didnt buy a thing this woot-off. Cheap sh$t and way to expensive cameras and computers. With the partnership with amazon you'd think they would start getting some stuff we have never seen on here.....but then again we are talking about the people who make the Barrels of Crud appear at 2pm or 5pm EVERY WOOT OFF

So I tried to buy a Barrels of Crud before work today and left as it was in the "your order is processing" with the rotating line. Just got home. Still on that screen and it's not showing up on my orders. Am I correct in assuming I got hosed and just close out?

I may not like iMacs, but to partially justify the price, not many $600 PCs come with an IPS display.

Name one Mac OS X virus currently existing in the wild.

There's malware, and trojans, which require some user intervention to work. But as far as self-spreading actual viruses, there are none for Mac OS X.

If woot is offering nothing but cheap "sh$t" as you put it, why would you want a Barrels of Crud What do you think is in there?

Apple unloading these on Woot? This can't be a good sign for desktop computers. Oh right, we're in a recession.

No, it's a quality post because "Will it work with a Mac?" is one of Woot's most famous memes.

That may be true, but as I recall, both Linux and Windows smoked OSX in a hacker/security faceoff a year or two ago. OSX was hacked easily, in less than a day, compared to M$ or RedHat.

*Yawn* Too much apple junk for me I am just not that into it so I guess it is off to bed. This woot off was a disappointment, what I really wanted was a thrive or iconia at a super low magical woot price but I either missed it between the ipad and the reflective vest or woot didn't come through... *Sigh* I guess I will be stuck with my 7" galaxy tab for a while longer.

Apple has an economy larger than Greece at 400 billion, and they did it by selling only like 240 products.

Seriously, Apple products are WAY overpriced.
