This is not meant as flame bait.

I am just honestly curious as to how the guys at Macdoc can offer really low prices on everything from G5 packages to optical mice to external Firewire hard drives.

How do you guys do it?!

Actually macdoc sells a cheap Russian knock-offs called Makintoshski. In fact I think the G6 is already shipping in Mississauga.

Makintoshski would actually be Polish

Makintoshkov (Makintoshkoff) would be Russian

Makintoshchuk would be Ukrainian
Makintoshkij or Makintoshkiy could be Ukrainian
Makintoshsky could be Jewish

the 'i' at the end usually signifies a Polish name

Remember I am only a Math & Computer Science major ...

I live to serve.

"Makintoshski would actually be Polish"

Actually, yes it would be. As a Pole, I'm just verifying ;)

Macdoc, I meant no offense by using the word 'cheap'! It just came to me!

Inexpensive is a far nicer word...repeat it with me folks..."Macdoc is inexpensive...good, now exhale...good!"

Macintocius, would be Lithuanian. In Lithuanian the c is pronounced as "SH". And the "i" is silent. That will give it the sshh sound required to mimic Macintoshus. :D

Yes the Eastern block is important but how about we of British ancestry:

McIntosh for the Irish-Canadians...


(oh wait, isn't that a delicious toffee/ high end audio product? I hope the copyright lawyers are taking some time off).

Macspectrum, if the "Makintoshsky could be Jewish" and you "live to serve", might I have another bowl of chicken soup that has been heating on top of your G5? :D

If I am not mistaken...

MacIntosh is Scottish {but no craaaap}

The Irish prefer McIntosh.....
