^^^I heard they're locked on the campus. Suicide is also a very common occurrence.

True. But they are the primary contract manufacturer for Apple.

I completely agree that Macs are overpriced, but I have never had a pc work this flawlessly for this long.

4 years old and I can bring myself to replace it. Why would I?
