Just in case Mac users have been getting a little cocky lately, here"s another dose of reality.

But I digress, the PC/Windows is still better than Mac, because it is excellent for working, and excellent for gaming, and trounces Apple in both fields. The only thing Mac improved on was the aesthetics. Even the freeze wheel looks pretty. Maybe that`s because they knew you`d bee seing a lot of it.

Read it and weep, Mac fanboys, then go f*ck yourselves.

For the love of God, nobody seems to understand that Mac has the crappiest design on the face of the planet. Even Vista surpasses this sh*t. The PC can do everything, repeat, EVERYTHING a Mac can do, most of it can be done even better. Sure, the Mac has decent performance in some of its programs, but that`s only some. The PC excels in almost all of its functions, especially gaming, and you don`t have to f*cking throw it away when it gets outdated by two years or less.

Windows can store music, view photos, make movies, watch movies, type documents, and then some. People say that the Mac is for work and PC is for play. WHAT THE FACK?
I can see Mac commercials that beg to differ. Notice the Casual guy representing Mac and Guy-in-Suit representing PC? That`s because the Mac is intended for leisure, but Apple managed to f*ck that up, too. The Mac is designed for fun, but it`s being used for work because that`s the only aspect it might have some sort of achievement in.

Maxim, I`m in the 13-17 age range and I`m definitely on the Windows horse.

Go me!

But I`m not going to argue with anyone. I know quite a bit about my computer, but not about computers in general so I wouldn`t be able to come up with my own arguement, just things that I`ve heard from other people.

Having said that...my computer is the poo, faster then hell, and does everything...

Gooo Windows!

I love Macs! They`re great for multi-media (making movies, music, websites). But that`s it. Windows is a great all around OS. You can do everything, from making movies to hardcore gaming. But if I had a choice, I`d easily go with a Mac over my 9300 Inspiron Notebook.

“Psh, don`t hate on Macs. Just because it doesn`t suit your lifestyle doesn`t mean you can hate it. So Windows suits your computer needs better, and you have a Windows - good for you.”

This is the problem right here. When you refer to owning a mac it’s a “lifestyle”, when you talk about windows its only good for peoples computer needs. Mac’s are computers! They are not a lifestyle! When Mac users say dumb poo like this and then question why people hate them, it makes me wonder if it would be illegal to slap someone that retarded.

“Its not very mobile, you need to bury it in 14 layers on foam wherever you go to keep it from breaking.”

Exactly! Someone should make a computer case that looks like the envelope so everyone can be a tool and say “Look, it fits in an envelope”

I believe that in the video they plugged in a USB hub(oboviously), Ethernet adapter, a DVD-burner, a WAN reciever, and GPS reciever. All are available built into the x300 and not the MAC.

"airmac isn`t supposed to substitute for your regular computer. it`s for people that need a really mobile laptop for business or travel. . PC people are just jealous so they try to come up with real problems with mac but they fail."

Why not buy a pen and some paper?

If your going to spend 3k on a laptop shouldnt it have a dvd drive? let alone a cd drive! I do believe that YOU my dear are failing, Maybe you should take a class or two in "how not to be a fanboy" "computers 101" or even "how to tie your shoes".

When macs have something other than 5 year old hardware and cost a PROPORTIONATE amount, ill consider buying one... to sit on.

Not true. A mac is specifically designed to work with mac parts. So honestly...

Mac`s are thieves. I`ve said this numerous times. They just pasted their GUI over Unix and called it something new. The only thing a mac is good for is being pooty, oh, and final cut pro. I would never, ever buy one. I <3 my PC and the fact I can UPGRADE IT. I also feel closer to my system when I boot up with linux, it`s like every time I log into ubuntu my computer and I have a heart-to-heart. =)

Sorry, I`m rambling.

Tl;dr, Macs have 1 good thing going for them. Windows wins.

Everyone should just choose an operating system that fits them and just chill...is what I would say if I was "that guy" but Im not.
PC`s can do everything a Mac can do..maybe not better as a Mac sometimes..but hey..doesnt matter to me.

As for media and people for saying Macs are better at media..that has some truth to it..however Windows FREE Movie Maker was voted better than the Mac Movie Maker which you have to buy. And hey, music is music, they are the same of both Operating Systems..in my opinion.

I would consider buying a Mac if I could upgrade..instead of chucking my old Macbook out the window when every January rolls around to find out I get screwed when my compy gets outdated..gosh dang macworld expo..and you cant even tell whats coming next cause they keep their plans so secretive that the USSR plans would seem like freeware.

How about I settle this for all of you.
Macs are well-built. They have some of the best customer service out there, and have great percentages as far as computers that fail.
The Macbook air is waaaay overrated.
PC`s can be great. I have an HP and it`s awesome.
I`d love to have a mac, but they are ridiculously overpriced, and you can get a PC with comparable specs for a ton less. If you say you don`t want to buy a mac because you`ll look like a "Douche", you sir are douche. They`re all computers.

I don`t like macs. No right-clicky mouse. :-(

Plus, I had one, and nothing else is compatable with a mac except other Apple products. PCs, you can pretty much get anything but Apple, and the software for gaming and such comes more often as PC. Not saying that PCs are the end-be-all of everything, macs just piss me off. Vista sucks, too, you know. XP

Linux for the win! -nod-

I don`t like macs because you can`t upgrade them most of the time. Plus, they charge ridiculous prices for the hardware. Want to upgrade RAM in a macbook? Buying 4GB of notebook RAM costs $400. If you buy it from newegg, it`s $79. Want to upgrade the memory in your mac pro? 4GB costs $1000 at the apple store. $200 on newegg. Gotta love apple!

While both macs and pcs are both okay, the macbook air is just a ridiculus design. No matter if you need to do work or just want to play games, I think a CD drive and several usb ports are vital.

Angie: stupid girl. The PC has much more gaming potential than consoles you stupid. Can you bring a television and an x-box wherever you go? nay. Can you even get close the the graphical potential with a console to a PC? NAY. You obviously dont know sh*t. So go play with ponies and drink juice from a plastic cup with two hands. Maybe wait a little while and you can come and play in our sandbox. But for know you eat at the kiddie table. Capiche?

Who really cares? It`s all outdated within two months anyway.

The macbook is great for business purposes. You can go online and type documents with ease, but that`s about it`s limit. The programs that run on Macs are all relatively terrible on the macbook as compared to a desktop mac, and the price is far too high for any purpose other than professional work.

Windows OS is definitely for the people who want a good game PC and nothing else. Professional work is put to the basics on a Windows PC.

I use Linux OS. It`s the best for programming. Ta-freaking-da. Choose what fits your lifestyle and quit being biased. Having used all three to quite some extent, I can honestly say that all have their advantages and disadvantages.

This computer`s commercial, however, is acting just like the macbook`s. They show very little of its capabilities and basically say only that it can fit in an envelope too. A little hypocritical, really.

To whomever thinks that Macs don`t crash:

I used a friend`s MacBook once. I was JUST on Safari. I crashed it within 5 minutes. Admittedly, the programs are very nice, but it`s not perfect.

And lol @ scar104:

I`d like a mac *someday*, after I get settled into a place of my own (shortly), get a nice PC for everything else I do (beyond my lappy), and THEN I`ll get a mac and use it for creating art, video, and music.

It will be my multimedia machine, and that`s about it.

Psh, don`t hate on Macs. Just because it doesn`t suit your lifestyle doesn`t mean you can hate it. So Windows suits your computer needs better, and you have a Windows - good for you. It`s just a matter of what you need a computer for that decides whether you`d be better off with Win or Mac.
Both Windows and Mac users are ignorant for hating each other and thinking theirs is superior to the other. :D

"but to all those PC/Mac fanboys, macs are great for your uber media useage, while PC is better for gaming, so they are pretty even."

Wrong/ if you work in the CG industry youl quickly realize that `uber media usage` or "creative stuff" is near impossible on a macs shoddy hardware.

A decent quad on mac? no!

A Graphics card made 4 years ago? Yes!

Decent clocking RAM? nope

upgradable? nope
(working creativly and you dont upgrade, prepare to get left behind)

seriously in what way could a mac ever be "creative" ...because its silver? becuase its marketed so much? maybe, just maybe because people believe the tripe that apple spits out.

I could nip over to mac shop and copy and paste the specs of their HIGH END macs but if your that much of a mac fanboi you can look yourself.

(*not directed straight at you `the stringy` just needed to be pointed out, Grinds my balls when people state macs are creative or media hubs.. all it does is further t

"Who makes a computer without a CD drive for drats sake?"
Mac does. The reason? - I assume they`ve done some studies on consumer behavior and found that the CD drive is used only rarely. That would make sense, since a lot of work involves small files that can easily be transferred through USB via flashdrive or over the internet. So why put something into a laptop that people almost never use anyway?!
If you`re one of the people who frequently use CDs, then this Mac model certainly isn`t for you... This computer is designed for work, not games.

Good video, macs do suck, you can take a piece of sh*t and put it in a shiny pretty package but you are still buying a piece of sh*t. It is annoying to hear mac users spouting off marketing phrases like "it just works". Everything works because you can load every driver for every piece of hardware that is compatible with a mac into the OS, which is not that much considering almost nothing is compatible with a mac.
