There's nothing superior about Apple hardware
And can we talk about the so called "superior hardware" Apple is bragging about? Having moved from the superior PowerPC chips to allegedly-inferior Intel chips has – by Apple's own propaganda – boosted performance anywhere from three to four times from the "old" hardware. Various benchmark results floating around on the InterWeb are showing that in an "ahem" chips-to-chips/box-to-box comparison, an Apple Intel box with a PC Intel box come out in a dead heat. A better looking case and ditching all the legacy ports (parallel, serial, PS/2 mouse & keyboard) makes for more elegant design, but superior performance isn't a part of that mix – unless you're comparing it to Apple's last-generation hardware.

The only thing that did seperate a Mac from a PC was the CPU. Everything else in a Mac was ordinary PC stuff, hdd, vga, memory, it was all the same stuff.
Now it's nothing else but a pc in a nice package.
I wonder whether it's possible to run MacOS on a 'normal' PC, since it's actualy linux ?
