I don`t care if I use Windows or Mac. I have 2 PCs at home and at school they`ve got Macs and PCs and I think they`re both actually quite good computers.

"(yes half-life was never written for mac). although, all games CAN be played on mac with the use of a windows emulator...."

mate buy windows, or use linux. tbh i didnt read your whole post too long. still happy in the knowledge that i have a far superior machine in graphics proccesing space etc... seriously sheep get in line and stop responding. although you are giving my mates a laugh.

as your such a spelling nazi
"and just so you know, i wont respond again, my points fail" there ya go fixed.

MY quad cores getting all hyped up about playing some games and whipping up maya. When your finished with the 80`s come and play with the big boys who arnt so up themselves as to buy something because its expensive and silver.

catch ya later ikray,

you seem to like to make fun of my "calculator" remark, but the truth is that the basis of a computer is a calculating system. a order of sequences that are either on or off (binary). its evolved a bit since its first creation, but it all goes back to basics.

and yes, an apple is just like any other computer inside, all computers are made up of the same components, but the macintosh OS uses less resources to run (much like a unix machine) and thus can perform MUCH faster than a PC. go give linux a try (its free) and if you dont like it, stick to your windows ways. but if you do end up liking it, you will see why so many people who get a mac, hardly ever go back to windows other than for the big named games (yes half-life was never written for mac). although, all games CAN be played on mac with the use of a windows emulator.

again, do some research before your 13 year old arse tries to dispute anything else.

and just so you know, i wont respond again, my points fall

really, youre telling me that blizzard doesnt write games for mac? i do believe that world of warcraft is written for mac, and that is one of the top MMORPG`s out there. back in 1999 or so i was playing starcraft on mac, but if you say they dont make games for macintosh, i must`ve been dreaming. (dumbarse)

again, learn to spell, its annoying having to correct people`s spelling in my head while reading, its much simpler if you just read a response, not have to correct it.

and no, i didnt buy an apple because it was "silver and costs a grand," in fact it was more than a grand, but that wasnt my reasoning. if i wanted a pooty windows computer, i could build one for <$400 and be faster than any of the POS`es they sell for $700+, it was the OS i was after.

and i may be considered a mac fan (and i was into them all my life) but its better than being a person who is scared that if he touches a mac, his microsoft penis will shrink. you are just afraid you will like it.

Oh, geeze, I have tons of old AOL disks, but I kept them to reformat them and use as my own. I haven`t bought a floppy since 1988. I guess you kids don`t remember when everyone got three of these in the mail per week.

A) wow your flaw finding skills just went up 1 point gratz, was that realy worth a sentance. Nitpicking!

B)wow great try to come up with arguements! and yes porn is in my diet, a good mix of bran and porn.

C)stable OS, erm have you tried the new OS its like stirring through a thick pile of shi.t. test before you talk.

D) erm an apple computer has the same components found in low end computers, intel chips did i hear, well yes thats right intel chips. actualy CG artists cant use macs. maya for mac? yea sure but it ...has some problems, in that it doesnt work. again learn facts. =_=

E)wow games for macs... erm no. patches ..no. there arnt any. NO your rollercoaster tycoon from 95 doesnt count.

In truth, your talking out of your a.ss, your one of those guys who bought a mac, because "ahuc, its silver and costs over a grand" ... youve been conned, i know its sad. you cant play any high end games or use high end programs. BUT hey youve got a calculator... and safari.

A) the name is IkeRay (not ikray, learn to read and/or spell)

B) if when you think of internet, you think of porn, you have a problem sir

C) apples are more than just a windows machine spray painted silver, they run on a much more stable OS, based on unix. windows runs on dos...wow- run/dos/run

D) an apple computer can run windows vista better than a PC, but they choose not to because windows absolutely sucks not to mention that apples are preferred by almost ALL graphic designers/cg artist

E) PC`s are only good for 2 things, 1 is playing games because so many people have written games for them, and the second is to smash up because they are so cheap and worthless. but you dont need a PC to play games, most of the best games out there now are written for macOS as well.

in truth, i prefer linux over windows and macintosh OS`s anyday, but if i have to use win or mac, i use mac, and if i have to use windows i use 2k, plenty of people agree with me, you just suck at life...

Ikray_ You know what, im going to agree with you, macs are great... in fact there so great im going to buy a 4 year old laptop, spray it silver, add a half eaten apple logo, rip up any warrenty shove half a bicycle up my ass and start loving the smell of my own gas. You sir lose. learn how to turn off your computer.

O and if all you use your computer for is calculators and porn. you should look into buying "computing for dummies" or even
"Kipp the dog (ages 3+)"

well, youve made me smile... wiping the floor> sorry keyboard with your silver coated ass has been fun, but ive got games to play,cg programs to run, many many downloads going and friends that dont enjoy calculators . oop sorry dont worry ONE day youl be able to do the same. see you later firestarter.

necros, you fail. i hate XP, it is just a prettier version of 2k, which minimal upgrades. it was just released to compete against OSX, trust me, i can do anything an XP machine can do, but with less RAM usage. and dont even get me started on Vista, that POS OS was ONLY released because apple announced the release of leopard. sure it "handles" the RAM better (or so they say) but it requires you to have at least 2gigs of RAM.

you apparently are quite ignorant about computers. win2k was one of the most stable OS by windows (95/98 were also good, but the NT server is so stable). and just so you know, a 386 would be capable of surfing this site (yes even on a 28.8k connection), if its not some extreme gaming system, all you need in a computer is a word processor, calculator (if you do a lot of math on the comp) and a browser (FF).

and btw i have a 6mbps DSL line, thanks

i like the `why i`m selling it` part -
`A older relative of mine on my mom`s side has had a wooden eye for, oh, at least 50 years now. It has deteriorated over the years and now it looks really bad. I`m hoping to use the funds from this sale to get her a glass eye for Christmas. ;-)`

windows 2000 what are you! did you crawl out of a swamp and rape a whole village to get yourself a copy of that marvel! you fail, if you knew an ounce about computers youd also know when to sit down and shut up. lols go que up in the cold for some holier than thou teenager to rip your money out of your ass, "here take this, but never ask for an upgrade or ask why its underpowered for its price". . . slip on a quad core MR stoneage and do your nan.

there is a reason the first one sold for so much, not a good one, but a reason.

also, i was fairly sure that aol discs were always free, the auction from last year (from http://www.worldsmostwanted.net/forums/s... claims that he bought the cd...

pc users, shut the hell up. you are just jealous that you cannot understand macs. just because to do anything you dont have to go to a start menu, "how do you turn it off, you press start" its stupid.

best sell point of a mac, nobody writes viri for macOS (or viruses if you will).

and why would a GRAPHIC designer do anything outside of a computer? maybe an artist, but a GRAPHIC designer is one who creates art with a computer. what is the difference between doing something on paper, and doing something on the computer? its still art and if you cant see that, you are too tunnelvisioned.

btw, i am writing this from win2k, i use windows and macs on a regular basis and trust me, mac is 10x the operating system that windows is.

I just would like to say that one man`s treasure is another man`s trash. Just because he thinks that it is worth $995 does not mean everyone else thinks that it is worth $995. He should just lower the starting bid to 0 and be happy if he makes a couple of bucks off that.

So... I`ve been talking to this guy through eBay... he`s totally delusional.

The one that sold for over 9 grand was in perfect condition with the original packaging. It was, in fact, a COLLECTOR`S ITEM... this thing has oily fingerprints on it and half the label is scratched off.

He`s saying he had 25 watchers right now... HOW many of you are watching this on your accounts JUST to see if he`ll get any bids? he he he...

I love how his justification for the price is that last year someone bought it for more... Considering the disk is free, put it up for less and let the ubernerds raise the price for you. Honestly.

That is just made of fail right there.

It`ll never sell. eBayers are finickey nowadays, and this disc is HARDLY in "Mint to NM condition"

and the guy only has a 368 feedback score. He`s not trustworthy yet.
