1 out of 5 eggs???

Pros: It is shiny.

Cons: It is pretty much pointless.

Other Thoughts: I got this for free with windows 7, I don't understand why the name has "system builders" in it, because you cant build your own actual apple computer.

1 out of 5 eggssystem builder OEM hmmm

Pros: As most others i got this free....newegg didnt even want it and cant say as i blame them - haha...on the other hand last thing they gave me for free i sold on some auction site for 20 bucks so i wont complain.

Cons: was made by apple so it can burn in ....that place with fire. I give it 1 egg becuase it was made by satin and his menions. It cuased me to waste my time writing this review but this is what makes Newegg rock.

Other Thoughts: I had 1 ipod, never again will i subject myself to another apple product. I dont want to jump through all their hoops to install itunes then convert my entire library over to their format, from mp3 so i can then spend hours uploading after it finally converts. Nor will i buy any media from itunes. Their drm is crazy...you buy it they own it. No thanks i will rip the cd or buy from that other place i cant mention or newegg will smite my review - anyway they have drm free music. I will never understand why anyone would buy into apples hipe. My android phone was far better than my 400 $ ipod and takes seconds to put music on with no software needed. And since i carry it with me and its basically free, i mean i need a phone so its not an extra device i dont need. Go ahead you Mac heads feed the machine! Not me.....but please check out my parallels software on sell on some auction site :-) ... Rock on Newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsGot mine free...

Pros: Got mine free and I have absolutely no use for it. Works great as a shotgun target. Unless you're a Machead, you won't have a use for it. Maybe donate it to Adopt-a-Machead with a piece of hardware, since it's OEM? Going to see if it's legal to do that...

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsEasy install

Pros: I had already downloaded the trial version. when this arrive I just entered the activation and and presto instant activation with no problem.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Use this to install windows 7 and it was a breeze. Do not be fooled by the OEM version, no difference at all. TOok about 20 minutes to load windows on my Mac...loved it.

1 out of 5 eggsMac System Builders?

Pros: If Apple lets "individuals" build their own Apple computers it news to me.

Cons: Can't put an Apple OS on a PC, OS is coded to stop install if no Apple hardware exists....

Other Thoughts: If you want to Run 1,000's windows applications, it would cost far less to BUILD a PC and put Windows on it rather then buy an apple, then buy parralells and then buy windows. Hell after all the money you wasted on that setup you could Build 2 PC's
