No hate here! I've been wondering if anyone's used it on their older trucks, I'm sure it will still make it pop! Post pictures of you can!

I'll have pics for sure. After looking I think the only place it will really work is on my door panels. We'll see how it works out.

Parts can be made in high quality anywhere as long as the quality control for those parts have high standards.

Ah. I have a VGA and an HDMI adapter that I use with my laptop. But, they're usable on all of my various computers. The separate DVD drive isn't ideal, but there are so many people that don't actually use them any more that I'm ok with them not being included. In fact, I've never used one on my MacBook Air and have never felt like I was handcuffed in any way. 


Yea it's not a big deal for my parents because they don't really do much with it besides browse the Internet anyway.

What adapters are you buying? I have a couple of add-on cables for my laptop but haven't had to add anything to the desktop at all.
 
I've sold lots of used Apple gear and got a reasonable amount of my money back. Windows machines have never brought me anything of value in return.
Very high-end (gaming type) systems don't appeal to many and therefore don't hold value. The commodity machines are just that - a dime a dozen and don't hold value.
 
I have two HP Z800 Workstation machines that were $4000+ new about five years ago. I bought the pair of them, STACKED with RAM and high CPU, for under $1000. I use them to run a virtualization environment in my basement to do demos for my job. So, while I do have a couple of virtual machines running on them that are Windows workstations, that isn't their primary use for me.


I'm not sure on the adapters, my one instructor has a Mac laptop, and he had to buy a few different adapters so that's the only reason I know about them. My parents bought an Apple desktop for over $1200, and had to buy a seperate cd drive. I found that a little ridiculous but like I said it is a good computer.
