The ONLY Difference is the OS & the Outer Case [aesthetics]. And the Single-Clicking Mouse. And [of course!] the Higher Price of the Mac! :^P Everything from the Motherboard, CPU, Memory & Hard Drive is Entirely the same as a PC. Whats funny, is for the Price of a Mac, you can get a QUALITY High-Performance PC that is Faster, has better Hardware, and has Much more Capability than Any Mac!! I don't care what those Fan-Boys have to say, they are allot more Biased cause they are in love with Apple's Philosophy. [aesthetics = Higher Profit Margins = Higher Asking Price] Apple Computers are for people that are willing to spend Anything on a Computer that will do Simple everyday things under the distinct belief that they will: A) Never get a Virus [Which is False: The more Mac's, the more Viruses for them] B) Never lockup or slow-down [False again, they can do that too] C) Never have a Crash [And yes, they can] D) Look & Feel Better using a Mac over a PC. E) Be able to do things that people with PC's may not be able to do F) Feel as if they have the Best [Subjectively speaking] In Reality, they are Really doing the Following in buying a Mac: A) Spend about Twice as much Money as you could have with the Same Hardware specs in a PC. B) Run an Objective Operating System with Proprietary Software that you Will have to Pay for to Upgrade. C) Buying into Lies told from the Apple Stores & Fandom Folklore. D) You will be Controlled by what you believe, and spread Lies based on that. [You become the Sales-Medium Apple wants you to be] E) You will have to spend more money on getting Software for a Mac, and their is Less Selection available when compared to a PC. (And no Pirating! Apple Hates competition!!) F) You will find your unable to Game on a Mac, and believe that Games are for Game-Consoles only, just because you can't Game on your Mac! [Jealousy takes over] Do you Really want to Become a Casualty of Apple?!? Rise Up, and Live Free by Building a QUALITY PC using Select Parts!! The PC is the Freedom-Machine!! -= You know where the PC gets a Bad Rap From?!? =- • Cheap Generic Brands & low-end/Entry-Level Machines with Crappy Hardware • Blue Screen of Death from Windows 9x [95, 98, & ME] Which you DO NOT get in XP, Vista & 7! • Universal Buggy Software from 2nd-Hand Companies - THEY have caused Half the Issues!! • User's that are Abusive & click on ANY type of Download online that sounds good!! [Idiots!] If eMachines & Dell didn't exist, the PC would have a better Rap. Get a Sony, HP, Acer, or Build your Own with GOOD Quality Hardware!! :^) I have built 3, and they are TOP Notch machines, All still going Strong!!

Obama is a great orator. He is very charismatic and that's why many people like him. However, I feel as though he is a bunch of talk. It seems he has the right ideas but no genuine solutions or course of actions to accomplish his ambitious dreams. He gives speeches on how poverty is bad, how the economy can be better, and how he can better manage our foreign policy...but doesn't really say how. And he doesn't really have much experience outside a few years as a Senator. He is very liberal in his political views. John McCain is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy and served as a Naval Aviator before becoming a politician. He was captured in Vietnam after being shot down and turned down early release (he was offered early release because his father was an Admiral). He had the honor and courage to stay with the other prisoners of war and was released five years later. John McCain has been known to be a moderate - conservative politican. When he makes a decision, he sticks to it...he doesn't flip-flop like most other politicians. He has a vast amount of experience in foreign affairs, politics, and national security.

McCain is an old has-been with no new ideas. There is a VERY HIGH chance that Sarah Palin would become President of the United States of America within 4 years! Yeesh, that's frightening 8-( The Bush/McCain/GOP war in Iraq has cost us $3 trillion!! (that's $10,000 PER PERSON!) It has not found WMD or bin Laden, cost 4,000+ US lives, and had no valid justification in the first place. And since the US Treasury didn't have that kind of money sitting around, they "Charged it!". They added it to the US federal deficit! The US now owes $10 TRILLION (or $30,000 per person); do they think our debtors (mostly China) are going to forgive that? My kids and their kids and their grandkids will be paying that back for decades! When the GOP ask for the charge card in November, just say "No!". Obama is a young, intelligent leader, with many refreshing new ideas how to get the country back on track.

This is simple...and I really don't care about best answer...because Yahoo Answers is about opinions as is America...Mc Cain is an idiot...and Obama is very smart and remembers what he says a week before hand...therefore Obama deserves my vote...and he doesn't hate anyone. Who the hell ever told you he hates Christians and Jews...God, what the hell is being said about the poor guy...what? Just because he is black? Whats wrong with you Mc Cain supporters? You know he Bush all over again, and I don't care if a person is purple, if he is smarter and has better qualities and policies, then I'm gonna vote for him! And the only ppl that are going to support McCain are the upper-class older white ppl that could care less about all the suffering going on in Iraq, because they already have their million dollar homes, 401K's, and their house maids...we on the other hand still have 2 bedroom apartments and have to raise our children without the use of a nanny, and we have to actually work for a living and still have to pay taxes so ppl like McCain can give it all back to you "rich" ppl. Pathetic republicans...I really hope Obama will win this, McCain stinks like rotten eggs...like 8 yr old eggs...lol.

Seriously, you should watch the two remaining debates and check out their websites, and also factcheck.org. It's the best way to really get to know how the candidates stand on the issues. There's no such thing as an un-biased opinion.

Senator Obama wants to tax the top 5% and give the money that is taxed to those who do not work. This is Socialism. Senator McCain wants everyone to work hard and keep the money that they make. This is called Capitalism.

Sabryna Originally Answered: I think im turning emo or goth what are the main differences?
They were two COMPLETElY DIFFERENT movements. I'll outline the basics for you. ((p.s., goth was around for about 20 years before our modern day emo subculture came into existance, for one.)) Goth - has been around since the 70s. A post punk movement, is started in Britain and most of it's members are adults. Several people who are professionals are or have been goths. Gothic rock is music like The Cure, Sisters of Mercy, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Joy Division, Alien Sex Fiend, and so on. These were the origional "black clads". Goth is not satanic, it is not depressed, self harm is not part of the gothic subculture. Goth likes to view things as melancholy, finding beauty in things most society doesn't even look at, or does not want to look at. There are goths anywhere from 12 years old (Baby Bats) to in their 50s and older (Elder Goths, who have been around since the beginning of the movement). Goth, like emo, started out as a music fandom and evolved into fashion and more things. However, Gothic music (NO MARILYN MANSON) and Emo music are COMPLETELY different.... AFI is not goth, MCR is not goth, HIM is about 1/2 goth (say this because about 55% of the fans are goth, but HIM is actually just love metal), and so on... you want to hear the difference? Look up music by Bauhaus, She's in Parties is a good one.... that should explain a lot without the use of any words on my part at all. Emo - Emotional rock, came in as goth started dying out in the 90s. Emo is a subculture based around teenage angst for the most part, as well as drama, and rebellion. Emo music focuses on emotion, and on getting emotional responses. They took things from the gothic culture when it comes to their look, but there is alot more neon and more "scene" and normal things in the dress, more "rocker", than the goths. Emo music is bands such as Hawthorne Heights, and several emos like bands such as From First to Last (might look goth to the untrained eye, but they are screamo). It is a subculture based on emotional angst, depression, rebellion, and what not. Bisexuality is common (seeing how this is when tada! Hormones run high), and anything that looks "cool" is in. Art is not as common here as in the gothic community, depression is much MORE common, and this is a subculture TARGETED at a certain age group. Hot Topic is not a goth store, however, Emo is a subculture that typically loves and finds most of their clothing, music, and what not at this mass-production mall store. Tight pants, neon shirts, and tennis shoes and hair are really big here. Gothic fashion as more variation. Look up the goth lyfe emo episode, dude... or just RESEARCH the gothic movement, then research the emo movement. I think when you read up on them, the difference will be REMARKIBLY clear.
