    What do you use your Mac for?
    so again, i searched etc etc, didn't see one.

    What is your primary use for your Mac?

    As many of you have probably guessed, I record music on mine.

    lets see how interesting this gets

    Oh, and I guuess...that I also use it to process my RAW files and organize my photos in Lightroom, PS (minimally) and Silver Efex Pro. Looking at my dock, I apparently also use it to compose and record music in Garage Band, communicate with my friends and family via Adium and Skype, listen to my music via Songbird, take my entire music library with me when I'm on the road via Audiogalaxy, streamed to my EVO 4g, do some word processing when necessary with MS Word, get some email and of course, talk to you fine people on the interwebs!

    Internet and creating an occasional document in Pages. That's it for me. Don't really NEED a Mac for that, but it sure doesn't hurt.
    Don't believe anything I tell you, unless it is consistent with what you already know to be true, or unless you have taken the time to research the matter to prove its accuracy to your satisfaction. This is known as "doing your homework."

    Internet, e-mail, spreadsheets, word processing, recording old cassette tapes & vinyl albums to burn to CDs, getting photos off the camera and to a developer... That's about all I can think of.
