How do you value the Mac OS?

If we don't factor in the OS or features like the power connector you may find yourself unable to buy-in.

Correct me if I'm wrong
by jelgert / May 4, 2006 9:02 PM PDT

I believe what R. Proffitt is telling and correct me if I'm wrong R. Proffitt is that when considering the price of the Mac Pro there are extra things you get that you may not realize and that are absent on PC's mostly. For example Mag safe power adapter you get with the purchase of your Mac and OS tiger as opposed to windows which is much more cluttered with spyware and virus's at the time and really not up to par to some of the security protection OS offers for the time being. You also get the majority of your software needs provided for you iLife and if you want it you can buy iWork for 55 bucks I think. So basically take this and apple's reputation as building quality computers into account and you can see why it is worth the extra money. The buy-in part is basically the idea that you have to buy-in to those extra features at the cost of what you may see as better components on a similarly based PC. Last note here don't get me wrong you can find a competive laptop to this Mac Pro its just going to cost you the same amount and if your not careful about it more to get a similar machine.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
