    For my money... I'd say no. I'm sure they'll make it though... as I'm sure all the major manufacture's probably will... but we never know during these things...

    Are you looking for a new pc soon? If you aren't confortable building I would suggest you get a dell. They make fine machines and have the best PR and tech support for any computer maker... (in my opinion)...just not beter then the people at TSG. :D Take a peak at this thread it is talking about the same issue...

    I'd also say they'll make it through. Don't most schools use Apples???

    Considering that the majority of graphic artists (or at least the ones that I know) swear by Macs, I'd have to say that Apple is probably in a better position than most PC manufacturers during this current recession.
    They have their core customers and I don't foresee many of them switching over to PC whereas most PC buyers will look for the best deal, usually regardless of manufacturer.

    Hi littlemar

    They don't use Apples around here in the schools anymore. The schools finally realized that they had to teach what the rest of the world was using. Of course most schools got apples for free or at a good discount in the past. Most companies today can't afford the expense of giving free computers to schools.

    I think Apple will survive. They have made it through many years with many problems already.

    I guess you could be right. But then when I was in high school there were no computers there. The only computers were the mainframe types behind glass walls. I guess that ages me.

    Yeah, I used to work on those. I even worked on one where you could open the cabnet door, step inside, and close the door after you were in. (But I was really young then) ;)

    I could picture that kid with the dragging outfit but the name went bye-bye. Thanks for the name. Okay if you say you started that young I'll buy it for now but only if you believe my lies too.

    :) :D
