    so where do u draw the line? for me, as long as u paid for your copy, i dun care how u want to use it, even on an new Amiga computer.
    the keyword in the license is Apple-labeled computer, not Apple-certified. get your facts right.

    if you decide to install 3rd party accessories/hardware parts aftersales, that's your own par-sal. it might void the warranty, but it doesn't make it illegal.

    you know how it is, when you are surfing and you get hit with a down-time, that totally sucks man.

    my other iMac is for Clock. to keep track of time.

    Cool! Let's get another 30" ACD as mirror!

    iMac as clock is good choice. If using other OS, any hang may cause inaccurate time.

    does the LCD monitor has an apple logo? does the mouse has an apple logo? does the keyboard (underside) has an apple logo? do you acknowledge this as apple labeled? if these things r considered accessories & not part of the apple computer, then can you run it w/o any of the 3 combo? or the definition of the word computer only restricts to the box only?

    something has bug me for yrs since i started working on the mac in my co some 6 yrs ago. when users claimed mac displays better graphics, better colours, images look better on the mac, & the images get printed out look the same as whats on the screen. when u do the same on a pc & the print out also look the same as the screen. which print will look better assuming both sys has been calibrated with the same device, say, spyder?

    scenario A) mac printout looks better. proofs that mac indeed can reproduce better colour & better for images. but that begs the question of reference. which sys is producing the actual thing? or neither?

    scenario B) both printouts look the same. that begs the question of why the mac looked better. or is it juz pychological?


    dun get me wrong. this is asked genuinely & on a friendly tone. not picking up any fight or whatsoever. & i still cudn't fig out how the color sync manage colour profiles easier as what Ortega mentioned in another mac thread. i can only do naked eye calibration with it, not the best calibration method i must say.

    Wow... you must teach me how to do that?

    My other friend also interested in Mac, but his birthday is not coming, should I get him another 2 30" ACD with a 16GB RAM Mac Pro? Haiz...
