    No LittlePete,

    Windows doesn`t have FanBoys. We understand that windows has problems and why people want apple to be the better option.

    But we also realize that Windows is still the lesser of two evils and doesn`t charge 600+ for a gimmicky oversized Ipod touch.

    I get ruthless in shops when I`m being ripped off. I recently bought an iRiver Story, ebook reader that uses electronic ink not LCD (so months between charges and you can leave it displayed all the time, just like a real book). Cost $399AU, and they wanted $65 for a crappy protective cover for it (presumably it will be like $10 when enough have been sold but for now its a short-qty production so high price). I categorically told the store I WAS buying the iRiver IF the case was thrown in free, and NOT if it wasn`t, and after much umming and ahhing, they gave me the case free. $65 on a $399 purchase? Not a bad bonus. The lesson is - Ask. You get nothing if you don`t ask.

    "Mac rules."

    No... Mac = gay. This dude proves it...

    "Windows people are the equivalents of the religious freaks who won`t listen to reason or proof. Sad really. "

    Reason or proof of what? that an equally capable `PC` is half the price of a MAC? that a PC can do more and is compatible with way more software than a MAC? that PC users can right click by default?

    Mac`s are for retards that don`t want to know what a computer is or why or how it does what it does. If you want do buy something that expensive just to check email and look at iab then you have more money than brains.

    There`s a reason that PC`s outnumber MAC`s at the consumer level and industrial level. But keep telling yourself that everyone else has it wrong.

    Compared to "PC`s" MAC`s are impotent

    Linux Rules

    Calderis said it best. Also I`d like to add, I`ve had crappy experiences with customer service with my PC, but so has my dad in dealing with his iPhone. The difference, the PC people don`t claim to be geniuses. PCs have problems, so do Macs. The difference is that Apple can be a bunch of pretentious pricks.

    "Oh yeah it`s on

    You should write steve jobs and ask him if you can be in their commercials since you`re the poster child of what a mac user is.

    "I like things that are shiny and expensive but have no idea how they work or how to use the `real` machines so i make up for my stupidity by attacking mainstream technology users".

    Mac`s crash too just an FYI.
    The computer i`m on hasn`t `crashed` in 4 years, my windows based HTPC hasn`t `crashed` in 2 years since i`ve built it. My laptop doesn`t `crash`, neither does my netbook.

    The problem isn`t "PC`s"...PEBKAC

    Macs and PCs are good at different things and they cater to different markets. There is no better computer, they are simply better at different things and if you think that one is better than the other, you must utilize what your computer is best at.

    Argument over.

    I can`t do half tthe things I want to do on a computer without my mac trying to pretend he is a PC ( by using this PC emulation stuff whatever it`s called..) So why not prefer a real PC if your mac needs to pretend to be one anyways?

    I`ve always found with Macs that they just work where PCs have loads of complications.

    Recently I bought a MIDI Keyboard, tried getting it to work with my PC, had to tweak endless amounts of settings, download and install new hardware, searched through endless amounts of forums online to fix problems and even still it doesn`t work 100%. I tried plugging it into my brother`s Mac, and it immediately worked without me having to do a thing.

    I do loads of video editing and music production so I want a Mac badly, the only problem I have is the price tag. Can`t afford one :(

    Webz - From what I`ve seen, macs cost far much more than PCs, even with the same specifications. I think one example I saw, the PC costed a bit over $1000, whereas the mac costed over $7000.

    I got a company to build my computer as a gaming one (I picked the parts, they put it together), so far, I`ve had no problems with it. Even when I got a new Saitek keyboard, I haven`t had to install anything, and it`s still working fine.

    The only time I`ve actually tried to use a mac in school (a few years back, yes), none of the macs had internet access, and it seemed a little buggy when I tried going into other programs, but I`m willing to suggest that the IT team at the place wasn`t the best in the world.

    except i`m a man, and to boot i can form a coherent sentence! For a MAC user you`re par for the course i guess. Your statement depicts the exact mentality of a dippoo mac user. "herp derp, what i use is different and more expensive and is therefor far superior to anything else"

    get a clue or a real argument, OR a sense of how to insult someone in english. Maybe your mac can teach you?

    im not going to say macs suck or widnows is the greatest, just right click and save the picture mac users
    also play some ut99 or ut2004, maybe crisis or WOW or any other cool game

    also the last time my pc crashed was becouse i deleted process that windows needed and by doing that it kinda couldnt run vista lol

    and the only reason pc`s bog down or crash is becouse people get stupid and put so much crap on there computer like 20 things that doesnt even need to be running while having low ram

    i have 3 usable gigs in my computer and ising only 48 percent of my computer with firefox for some reason taking 270,000K but i have a weather app and foxtab the next closest is windows explorer at 22,332k
    but its when people overload there computers with junk apps that it starts getting stupid

    You`re a frakkin moron then. Your Mac isn`t "pretending" to be a PC by emulating, it HAS the same chips inside it and boots off THEM when in PC mode. It IS a frakkin PC you moron - it just happens to have a Mac chipset built in AS WELL.

    okay, people dont seem to get this but Mac, PC and Linux machines do different things better/worse than others....thats why you CHOOSE which to used based on what YOU want to do.

    think of macs as pencils and PCs as pens....pencils are better to draw with but pens are nicer to write with. it depends on what you want to do.

    "Mac vs Pc"...let`s go
    Pcs aren`t exclusive to windows(linux?). Technically macs are also pcs(personal computers) so it`s douche-like of Apple. Anyways it isn`t really a "windows vs mac" as it is a "mac vs everything else". And since we`re speaking of pcs then we are speaking hardware. So now we`ve got apple vs Dell, HP, Sony, Toshiba...(insert many more), and us(Custom builds, whether we actually do it ourselves or not)(Hackintosh is on the "Pc" team). Pc`s will give you greater performance per dollar given that you make the right decisions. Also, on aesthetics, I agree some mac products look nice but, they are not the only ones who can make things pretty ( I like the Zune HD, for example). Anyways you can choose a computer that looks good or you can choose a pc case that suits your taste( I don`t really like the mac pro case). People aren`t trying to compare apples to apples, they`re comparing apples to a farm(perhaps with better apples).
