I've become the same way Blue is. I like tweaking things and fiddling with them and getting the best performance possible. I also like knowing that if something breaks on my desktop, I can open the sucker up and fix it myself. Apple products aren't really the best for me because of that, but I still do like them. I have a couple ipods that have been hanging in there since the beginning of time itself, and my boyfriend has an iphone that I'm seriously in love with. I don't know if I'd go with apple for anything bigger than an ipod, though.
