This computer does less than your present one, is harder to personalize, cannot be upgraded, and costs twice as much. But its cool! Cool I tell you!

My first reaction when seeing the mac all those years ago was "wha? Only a black and white screen?" The apple// series had color.

I will say this about the Apple products that I own--MacBook Air, iPad, iPhone, iPod--every one has been completely trouble-free, easy to use, and does what I want it to do with a minimum of hassle. That has not been the case with my Windows-based machines, which always seem to have something that doesn't work. "Cool" doesn't enter into the equation for me. I just want something that works without me having to mess with it (and maybe screw it up worse).

Yep. That video reminds me what a piece of crap that original MacIntosh was. And what a ripoff of the work of Xerox PARC. But, thankfully, Apple did clean up their act over time, fixed their mistakes (mostly). Now I own an Apple.
