Honestly, to the people who say that building a computer is the way to go, I`m pretty sure the type of people who buy Macs are the type of people that are willing to spend $1000 to NOT BUILD a computer. People are lazy.

Building a computer these days is as easy as pie. Really, anyone can do it. I haven`t bought a desktop in ages, and I`m no genius- just cheap...

I feel sorry for the idiots that pay all that money to Apple for WAY OVERPRICED hardware.

If you like the operating system, then build a computer for 1/3 to 1/5 of the price and buy Apple`s operating system.

Apple sells you a $300 computer for $1300 and people eat it up. It blows my mind. I actually don`t have a problem with Apple, just with them getting away with ripping people of WORSE than Microsoft.

mvangild:
Microsoft computers are much, much more popular and common in households than Apple computers, and people who write viruses want to target the most amount of people popular. Why write a virus that will only target 10% of the population when you can write one that will target 90%? Apple isn`t necessarily safer than Microsoft, it`s just rarely targeted by virus creators.
Also, since most people boast that Apple is easier to use then Microsoft systems, that point seems a bit off.

@mvangild- People write viruses for Windows because it`s by far the most popular operating system.

I can guarantee that I would still find a way to spend all that money in a few days.

That`s why Microsoft is better? Seriously? The writers of the operating system that pretty much opened the door for viruses, trojans, worms, and spawned entire companies to the eradication of such devices, and they`re "better"? No. Microsoft got its leg up by being easier to use, and therefore easier to exploit. Calculated risks (risks with OUR personal information) were taken in order to maximize market share. Now that they have the market share, they can act like they care about our security. I call shenanigans.

Nah, money makes anything to look better, on the surface"

I suppose that`s why the iPad costs so much.

At least the colours are nice to look at though. ;D

I found this interesting, especially as I`m doing a business GCSE.
