Wow! Y'all got some impressive machines! I have owned laptops in the past (actually still have 2, semi-functional). My desktop is a Windows 7 machine, 2.8ghz Intel Core I7 processor, 8gb RAM, 1.5TB HD and dual 22" monitors.

I got spoiled at work with dual monitors. They are big enough that I can have a browser, last years tax software, this years tax software, and a pdf of a clients tax documents open. It's very efficient.  ;)
Maybe next year I can get a third monitor.......

Set your brewery to 400%.

I wish I could do that as easily with my brewery...  :)

I use a large variety of both at work...I run IT and software development so I've worked with a lot of machines!  I am generally constrained and irritated by the full OS X, but to give Apple credit, their iPhone OS is quite impressive for what it is...I love the interface for a mobile device.  On a desktop, I'm still dyed in the wool XP.  You want an OS that is probably going to be the most universally compatible OS out there for any random selection of software and hardware, XP is the ticket.  Vista and 7 are hogs with needless eye-candy, Ubuntu and most recent linux permutations are nice (albeit ideally suited for the hobbyist who likes to tweak, or basic needs users), and Mac OS X is basically like Ubuntu that you pay out the nose for.  Albeit with very stylish looking hardware.

But I'm not anti-Apple...other than its overactive tendency to try and change what I am typing, the iPhone OS is fantastic.  I was on Windows Mobile 6.1 before that which is probably not a fair comparison.  I've tinkered with Android, but only from the emulator in the SDK.

That does not improve resolution..... The better link did though. Thanks Rabid_dingo.....

Ironically, you can also right-click the image, select view image, then click to enlarge. ;)
