FREE Toolbar to Brand Your Company/Product/Service

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine introduced me to a toolbar that made complete sense. He said, if you use this toolbar, it will allow you to search for products on Google, Yahoo, Bing (major search engines) and it will “compare” the products and find the cheapest price. Now, I must say, this sounded too good to be true. I usually do my own comparisons, but not as thorough as this tool. You see, I use to spend hours trying to search sites like eBay, Amazon, Costco, etc to find a specific product and model number. With this tool, I no longer have to do that. My best advice is this, the tool is free. Go play with it and return here and give me your feedback. It’s only available for a Windows machine platform, not Macintosh. Download the tool here: http://www.affordablecomputerdoctor.com/freetool

New School Network Marketing

Does Attraction Marketing Engineering really work? I developed that name because I see a lot of people using their catchy phrases. I sum it all up to this. “Attraction Marketing Engineering” is taking bite size pieces of different elements on the web and you developing your own concepts. You will absolutely unequivocally find your niche as you stay consistent in developing your list.

Where do you start? Watch this video closely so you can see what the next steps are in your education of Web 2.0. The name of the system I put in place is called My Lead System Pro (MLSP). Why does MLSP work so well? Is it a scam? Absolutely not! It has allowed me to build my list of over 300 people in less than 4 months. I have built great relationships with people because of this system. People that are network marketers are seeking me out and not just people who are already working in the business but newcomers are coming to me as well. For instance, I just did a five part one on one training with a guy who is doing internet marketing part-time right now, he is a OSHA safety inspections supervisor right now but he would like to leave that job within the next year. I was very flattered when he sought me out for training. Essentially you are becoming the hunted instead of the hunter. We know that 95% of the people in network marketing are failing because of:

1) Not enough people to talk to.
2) Not enough money in their pocket.

So the solution is this…

1) You will learn about why Funded Proposals are important
2) Building a Powerful List
3) Building a relationship with that list.
4) Profiting off Affiliates.

Documentation beats conversation any day. Take a look at my back office and what I have done to grow my list. If you follow my training you will absolutely duplicate what I have done. The first step is taking action and following the building process outlined in this video. Enjoy:

MAC OSX VS. A Windows PC

“The advantages and disadvantages of Windows vs. Macintosh computer systems”

I do believe that from small to largest companies, and all types of businesses in the whole wide world, computers, internet and software are a necessity. So we must choose the best among the best. I was a longtime Windows user, but decided to switch to Mac. As I see it, here is a quick summary of some of the advantages and disadvantages of owning a Mac.

Advantages of Apple Computers

Security. Apple computers are much more secure than Windows PCs. Viruses, adware and malware designed for a Windows-based processor simply will not run on a Mac. More than enough to say its kinda upsetting. Especially for those whose income is derived through the computer world. The main reason for this is simply that there are much fewer Macs in use. People who make malicious software want to have it spread to as many people as possible and designing a virus for a Mac simply will not accomplish this.

Reliability. The people who make the Mac software are the same people who make the Mac hardware. While Windows programmers have to take into account nearly infinite variations in hardware, Mac OS is designed to be used on a very limited amount of computers: those built by Apple. The software is designed specifically to run on the hardware. This means that the operating system is much more stable.

Macs are convenient. Do you own an iPod? An iPhone? Do you listen to music with iTunes? Do you appreciate how simple, elegant and easy to use these products are? Apple applies all of the things you like about these products to their computers. Yes, there will be a time of adjustment to using Mac OS, but once you are used to it, you will love it. There´s some much you can do, you can get your named engraved on any item with a laser from the boss laser website.

Advanced technology. The current generation of Macbook Pros feature LED monitors, multi-touch mouse trackpad and a CNC machined aluminum case. Desktop Mac Pros feature up to 8 core processors (yes, eight) and up to 4 TB of storage (TB=Terabyte). That’s four thousand (4000) GB.

A Mac can do anything a Windows PC can. With Apple computers now using Intel processors, they are able to run Windows. With programs like Bootcamp or software emulation, you are able to install and run Windows on your Mac and switch between the two OSs easily. Macs come with a Mail utility with the same functionality as Microsoft Outlook. The iWork line of software comes with Pages, Keynote and Numbers which can function as replacements for Word, PowerPoint and Excel. Each of these programs can export files in a format that can be used in Windows software. Or, if you don’t want to try iWork, Microsoft offers a Mac-compatible version of Office.

Disadvantages of Mac Computers.

They’re only more secure because fewer people use them. If everybody used Macs, there would be a lot more viruses and malware for them. If Apple computers became more popular, they would become less secure.

Cannot be upgraded/customized. There are upgrade options when you buy a Mac, but unlike a Windows PC, you cannot mix and match components. The easiest way to upgrade a Mac is to buy a new one.

Price. Macs are very expensive. Even the cheapest laptop costs $999.99. Windows machines cost as little as $500.

Playing games requires Windows. There are very few games available for the Mac. If you are a gamer, a Mac is probably not the best choice, more if you get specialized hardware just for gaming from sites as Armchair Empire. You could run Bootcamp, but if you are going to spend most of your time on a Mac running Windows, you have to ask yourself if it is worth it. Another option (and the one I have taken) is to play games on a video game console, such as a PS3 or Wii, and simply use your computer for computing, or video games like csgo, with the help of services online like csgo boost.

It requires adjustment. It’s a Windows-based world. Most people are used to using Windows. Changing to a Mac requires that you get used to a number of differences. Some people are simply not willing to make that change.

Mac OS — easier to use, nicer to look at, safer (less people looking for holes in the OS).

Windows — cheaper (when combined with a computer purchase), huge user support network, easy to customize and repair, support for a gazillion hardware and software extensions.

My worst gripes about Mac — limits your choice — for example, want to play music??? you have to use iTunes and an iPod. As hot as the new intel platform is, I think it’s taking many software vendors too long to keep up.

My worst gripe about Windows — the people who need the anti-virus and anti-spy the most, don’t use it, consequently making the platform more dangerous for everyone. I use free security software, and I’ve never had a problem with security.

Glenn Blaylock: Yes, perhaps MAC software costs less, but when combined with hardware, a windows/intel platform is about 20% less on average, for a full blown computer. Also — most users don’t need the advanced features of XP/pro or the stuff you can find under the hood of OS X. It’s true OS X is a great OS — being a UNIX head myself — but I have no interest in getting under the hood of a computer I use for email and web browsing.

Mac vs. Windows Laptops

In addition, let me inform you that I bought my first Apple laptop, the MacBook Air. I’ve never loved a laptop more. The skinny profile, the ease of carrying it around, the full-sized keyboard and screen, the slick Mac OS X Leopard operating system, the…Okay, enough of that. I’m not interested in writing another “Macs are great, Windows computers are dog meat” religious conversion story. I’ve been using both Macs and Windows PCs for years. Each has its pros and cons.

Instead, I’m interested in addressing the lingering concern about Macs: They’re more expensive than comparable Windows machines.

So I decided to see if this concern is valid. I didn’t perform an exhaustive, detailed survey. Rather, I compared the specs and prices of three current Apple laptops–the MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro–against their likely Windows laptop competitors. Here’s what I found.

MacBook vs. Dell XPS M1330

The MacBook is Apple’s most mainstream laptop, and Dell’s XPS M1330 seems to be a reasonable counterpart. Both have 13.3-inch displays and built-in Webcams, and are aimed at general-purpose users who like multimedia features.

I configured online a MacBook and Dell XPS M1330 with specs as closely matched as possible. Both had 2GB of memory, a 160GB hard drive running at 5400 rpm, a 2.4-GHz Intel Core Duo 2 processor, Intel integrated graphics media accelerator (X3100), and Bluetooth 2.0. I chose the Dell 56Whr battery option (an extra $79), which is comparable to the MacBook’s standard 55Whr battery. I also added the $99 optional bundle of Adobe Photoshop Elements and Premiere Elements to the Dell laptop. The MacBook ships with Apple’s iPhoto and iMovie applications, part of its iLife suite, at no extra cost.

The bottom line: The Dell laptop that I configured cost $1308. The MacBook was $1299.

Worth noting: When I upgraded the hard drive in both computers to 250GB, the Dell laptop cost $1358 and the MacBook, $1399, tipping the balance slightly in Dell’s favor. Also, Dell offers more configuration options than does Apple.

Price advantage: Apple, by a hair.

MacBook Air vs. Lenovo ThinkPad X300

Lenovo has gone head-to-head with Apple with its ultra-thin ThinkPad X300, going so far as to creating a TV ad spoofing the MacBook Air. The ThinkPad X300, compared to the Air, is a “no-compromise ultraportable,” Lenovo’s ad claims. Our reviewer agreed. Darren Gladstone wrote: “What the ThinkPad X300 lacks in style, compared with the Air, it more than makes up for with better features and more functionality.”

It seemed fitting to compare the Air to the X300 in configurations as closely matched as possible. Still, there were differences. When I configured these systems, the X300 was available only with an Intel Core 2 Duo chip at 1.2 GHz, while the Air could be configured with 1.6-GHz or 1.8-GHz versions of the Intel chip. In the X300’s favor, that laptop can be configured with a built-in optical drive, but not the Air.

Here’s what my configurations of both laptops had in common: a 13.3-inch display, 2GB of memory, light weight (the ThinkPad X300 weighs about 3.4 pounds vs. the Air’s 3 pounds), a built-in Webcam, and a 64GB solid-state drive.

The bottom line: The X300 cost $2612 as of 6/20/08. Add $99 for Adobe’s photo and video editing software and the total cost was $2711. In comparison, an Air with the 64GB solid-state drive is $3098. Add another $99 for an external optical drive and the Air costs $3197, or $486 more than the X300.

Worth noting: When I configured these two systems, Lenovo had a “limited-time offer” of 20 percent off the X300. Without the discount, the X300 I configured would have been $3370, plus $99 for the Adobe software, or $3469. That’s $272 more than the Air. Also, if you’re not wedded to a solid-state drive, you can buy an Air with an 80GB-hard drive for $1799. Add the $99 external drive, and this Air costs $1898 compared to the X300’s discounted total of $2711. That’s a difference in the Air’s favor of $813 with Lenovo’s 20 percent-off discount and a whopping $1571 without it. Also, a standard hard drive is not an option with the X300.

Price advantage: The X300, but only if you get the discount. If you don’t, the Air gets the nod. [Update: Soon after this article was published, the price of a MacBook Air with a 64GB solid-state drive dropped to $2598, making the Air less expensive than the ThinkPad X300–even with a discount. –Editor]
MacBook Pro vs. HP’s Compaq 8710w Mobile Workstation

As its name implies, Apple’s MacBook Pro is designed for professional users. It’s a particular favorite among still image and video editors as well. So I compared it to HP’s Compaq 8710w Mobile Workstation, also built for professionals.

My configurations had this in common: 17-inch displays with 1680 by 1050 pixel resolution, dedicated graphics cards, 250GB hard drives at 5400 rpm, 2GB of memory, and 2.6-GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processors.

There were some differences, of course. For example, the HP computer features a biometric fingerprint scanner, which the MacBook Pro lacks.

The bottom line: The MacBook Pro that I configured was $3049. The HP Compaq 8710w was $3561. Adding the Adobe image and video editing software brings it to $3661. The HP Compaq 8710w came standard with a three-year HP extended warranty. A similar warranty from Apple costs an extra $349. If you factor that in, the price difference makes the MacBook Pro just $263 less than the HP notebook.

Worth noting: HP offers similarly configured laptops marketed to consumers for less. For example, I configured an HP dv9700t for consumers with specs similar to the MacBook Pro and the HP Compaq 8710w for $1818 (I configured this system on 7/7/08, so it may not provide an apples-to-apples price and spec comparison to the systems I configured on 6/20.) The dv9700t I configured didn’t include an extended warranty, however, which would have added $249 or $349, depending upon the warranty option chosen.

Price advantage: The MacBook Pro.
Other Considerations

Price aside, there are other factors in the Mac vs. Windows debate. Among them:

* Windows computers are perpetual targets for spyware and viruses. Macs are targeted, too, but not to the same degree.
* The Mac OS and Apple computers both come from the same company. While Macs aren’t trouble free, you’re less likely to experience as many unexplainable crashes and incompatibilities as you might on a Windows PC.
* Apple has earned top scores from PC World readers in reliability and service. See “Laptop Buying Tips, Part 1,” for more detail
* The Mac OS X Leopard is a clever, nimble operating system and a pleasure to use. Windows Vista is a behemoth. While not the demon it’s often made out to be, it ain’t the Mac OS, either.
* Apple laptops have thoughtful design touches, such as keyboards that illuminate automatically in dim lighting.
* There are many more laptop choices in the Windows world, and at a greater variety of price points.
* There are still plenty of software applications available for Windows only. (You can run Windows on Macs, of course, using Apple’s Boot camp, which is included in Mac OS X Leopard, or a third-party virtualization program such as Parallels Desktop for Mac (about $68 online).

Adding It All Up

Don’t buy into the old argument that Mac laptops are categorically more expensive than Windows machines. Sometimes that’s true–but they’re often on par with, or cost less than, their closest Windows laptop equivalents.
