Macs are ridiculous and their interface is barely usable. Everytime I`m forced to use one I want to kill myself within minutes.

So if you pay like 2000euro or dollars whatever you look like those on the left. But with 350 bucks at starting price you will look like obama? Makes sense.

DSDavis008- usually PC users brag about how they can add various hardware items to customize their pcs and claim mac people can`t, so that`s why I assumed this was the same situation. Granted, the variety of items that are truly compatible with macs out of the box is smaller but those that ARE available are produced by the best manufacturers and therefore, more reliable. As far as software goes, many mac programs utilize xml files and if you know what you are doing, you can customize software to a certain extent. Programs also tend to be easier to uninstall without leaving a ton of random files behind cluttering up the system and wasting hard drive space. The OS can be accessed via the Terminal and command line actions can be done there. I don`t have a reason to go there so I don`t know much about that.

@lauriloo I think he means software not hardware. it is easier to customize a pc to do what you want, but if you are going to be doing anything serious just skip both and go with linux so that it does exactly what you wnat without all the bs

I myself have a mac, but solely for the purpose of the interface with the Adobe programs are much better then on PC. I would much rather have a PC any day. But when it comes down to using Photoshop and Dreamweaver, Ill go MAC.

In other words PC for the win.

"Sure, Macs are more "user friendly" but that just goes to show who is willing to actually work with their system and tune it to their needs. Macs are out of the box systems... No work required. If you want something to be YOUR WAY, you need to work for it... Mac users relinquish the ability to customize for the ease of use... What you LOSE is the sense of "This system is precision tuned to MY needs" that only PCs can give you."

Really? My MacPro has third party RAM, several hard drives I bought on Ebay, an upgraded graphics card and other pci cards. I installed all those myself. On my old G4, I replaced the motherboard to upgrade the processor speed. Some people replace the optical drive in a MacBook Pro with an additional hard drive. It`s a myth that macs can`t be customized.

Mac`s are easy, for people who like simple and neat things

PC`s, in the right hands, can be a lot better, but it depends on the person. For some it`s just too difficult.
In the end they do the same thing, it`s just the user experience that is different

btw, check out this new Cyanide and Happiness comic
works on PC AND MAC xD

IceDragon speaks the truth...As someone who repairs computers, I`ve seen worse issues with my friends` MACs than their PCs... Anyone crying "PCs get viruses" doesnt have a decent antivirus and their issue is their own damn fault. And YES, MAC people, you CAN get viruses. The only reason you haven`t is because the creators of said viruses just aren`t bothering writing the code to be a threat to Macs yet... PCs are more common, so targeting Macs would be shooting for the little fish in a big pond...

Sure, Macs are more "user friendly" but that just goes to show who is willing to actually work with their system and tune it to their needs. Macs are out of the box systems... No work required.

There are so many quality antivirus programs out there, a lot of them free, that there is no excuse for getting a virus.

Aynway, Macs and PC`s do the same F-UCKING thing!!!

i agree with Reed12321, i`ve had so many windows laptops that have died and become infected so easily, my mac is almost a year old and i`ve never had any problems with it, plus it`s ridiculously fast. i`m not saying everyone should buy apple products, but when it comes to computers windows freeze all the time and macs never do (in my experience anyway)

For the price of a mac laptop, one can build a high end gaming PC. Not much point in spending more beyond this unless you go to ridiculous extremes that are unnecessary... such as 4-way SLI or Terabyte SSDs.

I`m pretty sure the value discrepancy is at least 2 to 1.

@lauriloo: I would argue that it was Mac that started these arguments with their commercials. You`ll notice that every PC/Windows commercial focuses on what the system can do that`s new, while every Mac commercial focuses on making fun of PCs.

lauriloo its because of those stupid Mac vs Pc commercials that came out a few years back during the whole Vista-B.S. When Windows 7 finally came out, Mac users still claimed to be better than windows and pointed at Vista when not that many were still on that O.S. The fact of the matter is, PCs are twice the computing power at half the cost.

Macs are good computers for people who don`t know HOW to use computers. However, for those of us who actually have to use computers for work purposes (such as myself, a computer programmer), we use PCs.

The thing that makes me angry is when Macs claim they are better when really they are just ridiculously expensive and not all that powerful.

I dunno, I think it all depends on your priorities. If you aren`t concerned with price, then an Apple becomes a viable alternative. They certainly do make stylish stuff. I, however don`t have money to burn. For the price of a single mac mini, I can build a monster gaming rig that is nice looking and way more useful.

If you look at their top of the line Mac Pro, which can cost over $12,000, I could build a houseful gaming rigs that would make any gamer wet his/her pants.

Typing this on my secondary gaming rig which I built for half the price of a mac mini at performs at the level of a base model mac pro, which currently retails for $2500...

Lets see, PCs are easier to use IMO (i still don`t know how to use a goddamn mac) so that part is entirely based on personal preference and no evidence whatsoever, and PCs are better at media than macs are. So basically PCs are, and will forever be, the better machine.

There are so many things wrong with that statement I don`t even know where to begin.

Think of all the most awesome things we do in the world because of the computer age, then ask yourself why it`s all being repackaged, refurbished and completely dumbed down in the Mac age.

I really hate this whole Mac vs PC thing. Both systems have their pros and cons. Also, chances are the machines themselves are created in the same factory with the same parts. I primarily use a PC since they tend to be easier to upgrade and the programs I use for work are designed for PCs. Plus, it didn`t cost as much.

I KNEW this picture was going to show up in a mac/PC debate. Ha. I was totally disappointed when I saw that the white house runs on PC`s. Scary.

I actually manage an office of over 30 macs, and in my 2.5 years, the only repair/maintenance/etc. we`ve ever needed was ONE battery replacement, and that was covered on applecare and fixed within the day (the batteries ARE removable). I like `em, they`re easy to use and fast. The customer service is amazing. And yes, they look damn slick. *shrugs* anyway... that`s my mac schpeel.
