My MAC has 16 gig of ram.. Can populate all the way up to 32 gig.... It supports four duplex HDMI video cards; so I can support eith monitors, built in RAID, dual gigabit ethernet cards, don't need to add anything. People say MAC's are expensive.... Go price a PC machine that can be expanded to that level.

MAC's have pretty much always been superior to PC in performance and ease of use. Don't think anyone can really argue that. However, regarding your comment above, if a person needs power then I can't really argue with you about the price. Those people who don't really need the power but just need entry level computers, then MACs are expensive. On top of that, for those who are "less than computer literate", try and get support when something goes wrong or you just need help setting something up. Here in Lubbock TX, pretty difficult to find someone to support you. Yes, that "less than computer literate" person can go online and find someone out there who can help. But, there again I am talking about the "less than computer literate" person. The customers I've supported over the years don't want to surf the internet looking for a solution. They want to call me, pay me, and have me fix the problem or find the solution.

Again, just to be clear. If you need the power, I agree MAC is superior to PC in performance and price.
