    Shouldn't WALL-E be the Mac? He does make the same noise when booting up.

    I think DaveP needs to find a new PC supplier...

    ps I love the look of Apple hardware but am too much of a tightwad to buy it...

    pps In 1995 I worked at a computer roadshow and took along my work PC (PIII) running a pre-release version of Window 95 just to show off a bit. A woman came up to me and said "Oh Windows 95 or as we Apple users call it Apple 84".

    So I said "Yes you're right and if Apple had shared the OS with other hardware manufacturers then we would all be using it by now..." ...and I still believe that today!

    WALL?E - Robot with the heart of a Mac | TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog
    And the PC should be Optimus Prime.

    I hadn't looked at it/considered it any deeper than this:

    The creator of the wallpaper is suggesting:

    A PC is old, tired and out of date.

    A Mac is shiny, new and ultra-modern.

    Exactly, just another Mac troll proud of their artful use of cut and paste which they could only do on a Mac 'cause Macs are for artists'... spew.

    So true I had to thank you, I always get the 'We need macs in music as there made for it.' They use GarageBand, thats like saying I need XP as it has Solataire on. Drives me mental!

    But Wall-e functioned fine for over 800 years (as PCs do go on forever and a day) but yet Eve was locked down remotely and has no end user replaceable parts thus Wall-E is the much better robot

    Eve has a laser canon arm and didn't once die and I love the blue LED's / lights etc lol.

    Wall-e got squished and nearly died completely as Eve had to find replacement parts etc.

    Indeed, just like a Mac, they have very little substance as well
