If you've got a newer or high-powered Mac that never seems to drag, then your Dashboard widgets are probably just a dandy little convenience. But those lacking memory or just sick of accidentally hitting F12 and getting their screen taken over by Dashboard could use a little help. If you just want to make the widgets go away for one session, you can install the simple Dashquit widget or use these terminal commands for the job. Killing multiple widgets, like those iterations that pop up from delivery trackers, is easier if you hold the Option key. And those looking for leaner, cleaner Dashboard can speed it up with some cache cleaning. And if you're really only hitting F12 for a single widget, try pulling it onto the desktop.

Apple machines are good but the problem is that it's a Windows world and there's not a lot of software out for them.

Apple machines are expensive. You have to order them don`t you? I have never seen one in my local Best Buy....

I believe you do have to order them and the salesperson tries to convince you to add a lot of extras to drive up the price.
