Right on, heyzeus-eighty. But...Icon is talking about a serious system, doing serious work, running serious programs, which require a serious amount of RAM (you're fronting on that claim - prove it), and that's all they've got, and Icon clearly cares about the operation. You're being glib, j-town. They have one machine. One. And they like it a bunch!
So now, ahem, you're upping the ante to a 50k TW machine, and I'll be straight with you, if that shit can handle all your gaming requirements with the headphones and the Bluetooth and the Taiwan Number One bullshit - you make a fantastic point. A machine is what you do with it, and at the same time, what you don't.
Even if Icon's company buys Apple shit because it looks good, the vast majority of users will tell you, if not swear to Jobs, that Macs crush PCs in the publishing, graphic design, audio production, and general artistic venues. Why? Wanna run the database for Chomp Corp. with 3,489 employees? Windows, chief. WIndows. Don't put a Mac near that shit.
The software is negligible in terms of RAM, is it? And I'm not compu-clowning over terabytes and whatnot. The problem isn't the software, it's that I'm often dealing with files that are GIGABYTES in size. Anyway, here's another way of looking at it: Apple has the most insanely simple interfaces and applications, and for some reason, that rankles coders and whatnot. In the end, we all want a super easy, simple, cheap computer. Then it dissolves into arguments about style and whatnot - and that's fuckin' noise, man. Noise. The 2016 Select Jaysus 8-0 might be spitting hot fire, but I can't cook with it.
I just bought a brand-new 65k Acer Laptop for my wife, because that's what she wanted. Windows works for her. Spreadsheet here, box of text here. They like it because?
My 4-year-old son has been downloading apps and making his own videos on his iPad since the day he received it. I was in my late 20s the first time I bought a computer from Dell, but I know for certain that setting up the Dell was on par with assembling the average IKEA snow globe, i.e. super_fucking_hard. Ultimately successful, but shrug-worthy.
Anyway, NASA has been lying to us this whole time. The earth is flat, the universe is not expanding, and Prince, as a Jehovah''s Witness, wouldn't take drugs under penalty of death.
Aliens always seem to take the most backwoods, fucked-up methheads of northeastern Arkansas. How is that possible? It's not.
