    Link: Free Wi-Fi At McDonalds: Mac Vs. PC - Here`s the instruction pamphlet McDonald`s gives nerds that want to use their free wi-fi. Pays to be an Apple fanboy?

    For anyone with half a brain, steps 3, 4, 5, 6 are not needed. If you don`t have dns and ip automatically set, or you don`t have your internet control panel settings correct, you deserve 4 extra steps.

    It looks superior, but it`s not. Windows has like 3 steps just as similar to the Mac ones, but when the Mac steps don`t work you`re solution is NOTHING. You can`t do ANYTHING to mess with settings. Windows actually allows you to fix problems yourself.

    Or just click "Connect to Internet"

    and Select "McDonalds Free Wi-Fi"


    That`s what I do on my Windows Laptop... Or on my Android phone- I just walk into McDOnalds and it does the rest for me.

    Actually... it`s the same number of steps (and very similar ones, at that. All of the extra junk in the "Windows" instructions just involved double-checking settings to make sure they`re set up properly, which shouldn`t be a problem in the first place.

    Most of the Windows steps only really apply if the McDonalds wifi is the first internet connection you`ve ever used on your computer. For those that didn`t have their new laptop shipped to a McDonalds, the steps are almost identical to those of the Apple.

    Mac, if it doesnt work, that is the only way to connect. Sucks for you!

    I dunno about Apple products man... my brother had an iPhone and the touch-screen went dead. Then after a week or so it started working again, but the button wouldn`t work. Then several days later, the button fell out. So, today he went and got a brand new iPhone 4. F*cking thing was broken right out of the box. Now of course, he can get it replaced (we presume), but it`s the hassle of another 2-hour round trip into the city again tomorrow night.

    Yeah, yeah, I know, anecdotal. But still.

    hence the words at the top "Need MORE help"

    it probably says the same thing on the back for macs. Connecting to wifi takes the same about of steps on a PC than a mac.

    These are the "if you couldn`t connect" instructions. The reasons that your PC wouldn`t be able to connect is that Windows doesn`t hold your hand through everything and allows many options to be changed. If your Mac can`t connect seems like you`re poo out of luck.

    All I have to do is click on MANAGE NETWORK CONNECTIONS, hit CONNECT TO (whatever network is there) and if need be enter a password. If no password is needed then I will be connected with my PC laptop in about 20 seconds.

    sorry Mac users, once again you have still over paid for an under-performing machine with no ability to change or customize anything on it. hey, enjoy BUYING a new one when it breaks!

    I`m a mac user. I`ve had a mac either in my home or as my laptop in college since I was about 8 or 9. Over a decade of usage. I`ve also had to us a pc whenever I go to the library or have to do anything at school. Thats how its been since I was a little kid. I have no problem using one or the other. Fact of the matter is, I use a mac because its comfortable for me, but I`m pretty sure I`d be just fine if I had a pc.

    I don`t get why people care about this type of thing. If you are one of those people that wants to say I paid too much for my laptop, good for you. If you want to call me a fan boy who wouldn`t know a power chord from a usb, cool story. Fact of the matter is, I`m busy doing other things with my life than giving my thought to this type of thing.

    Why aren`t you?

    Just tells you that Windows has more configurable options. Macs don`t, because they are deliberately broken for enterprise users with a sense of data protection.

    What I like most: They know that Linux users don`t need instructions on how to handle their devices.

    @BrainBits: You got me completely wrong. First, I am a Linux user and have been since 1996. Second, I wouldn`t touch MacOS (or IOS) nowadays because I refuse to accept Apple`s licensing terms. Third, MacOS X ist not at all based on Linux, but on the Mach kernel, which has inherited some BSD strains in its past.

    What I meant to say is that almost 100% of Linux users know how to set up their wireless without instructions. That percentage is (IMHO) lower for Windows and MacOS.

    ...or, Vista or Win 7, 1. make sure wifi is on, 2. right-click the network icon, 3. click "connect to a network", and 4. double-click the mcdonalds wifi network to connect. Not that the instructions in the pic are actually complicated or difficult, but they are completely pointless when Windows will handle most of it for you and is just as easy as the mac instructions.

    It pays in "Stupid". If have a laptop that you carry with you to a fast food restaurant and you can`t figure out how to hook into a wireless signal, it`s probably because you found a laptop and live at McDonalds.

    this is pretty sweet, and to be honest as a long time PC user I do get why Macs are loved.

    What I don`t get however is why you would spend over twice as much for a shiny aluminium case and the apple logo. I run Mac OS on my laptop as a dual boot, I have in my laptop enough power to beat most desktops, and much more kit than what you get on a Mac, but it cost me £500 to build instead of £1000. THAT is what I can`t stand! That people clearly only buy them because they "look nice" or because "its a mac!" which is stupid and shows a complete lack of common sense of any kind.

    think this difficulty has something to do with the fact that there are not alot of companies that make Apple comps, so the setup is pretty much the same. But there ARE alot of companies that make windows based PCs and Laptops. Each with a different set of cards, setups, customizations, the works.

    I think ill Just keep using my Droid to hook my laptop to the internet, thanks.

    It takes me 2 clicks to get on mcdonalds wifi with my thinkpad, I don`t know why they have 9000 steps for windows in that picture.

    I won`t even get into the whole pc vs mac debate, beating a dead horse and all that.

    Pays to be an Apple fanboy?
    Haha!

    This picture shows that you have significantly less control over your internet with a mac. If all a mac will let you do is list the networks and click to connect, then when it doesn`t work you`re boned.

    Anyway, this is not representative. It`s a freaking McDonalds pamphlet. Are we suddenly taking McDonalds seriously?

    That`s got to be a joke.

    Instructions for Windows 98 and up:
    1. Click on wireless signal icon
    2. Select McDonalds icon from list.
    -End Instruction-

    As an avid Linux supporter...

    Linux Instructions:
    1. RTFM!
    2. Pray...
    3. Return to step 1.

    If it doesn`t work on Windows you have lots of instructions to read to make sure every relative setting is correct. On Mac you`re screwed.

    I was about to write something when I saw Enjin already had. So ... yeah, what he said.

    Macs are for people who want to do exactly what Apple want them to do and nothing else, and take it back to Apple if there`s a problem.

    That`s what I hate about Mac. People who don`t know how to use computer go "omg look how EASY it is!!!" and then they go around telling the whole world about how awesome macs are. But if you actually know how to use a computer, and you try to use a mac, you just end up getting frustrated because mac doesn`t let you DO anything! The interface is so simplistic that if something goes wrong you don`t even know where to start.

    so you want your mac to be able to go on itunes and surf the web. and, thats it. oh wait. you also want to pay more for cheaply built laptop. as well as out dated hardware. i guess if that is what you want. then a Mac is for you.

    I can almost SMELL Apple`s brainwashing on you.

    Next you`ll be saying "It`s FINE that I don`t actually OWN the products I horribly overpaid for. Go ahead and brick them for whatever reason if I do something that angers you, oh great one Steve Jobs. I will accept you`re judgement and put down ANOTHER absurd amount of money to purchase ANOTHER sh*tty Mac rather than just buying a much cheaper, better built PC and dual-booting it if I want to use your crappy OS."

    Sev -- don`t think they didn`t photoshop the PC... that one was SUPPOSED to say, "ARE YOU SURE? Microsoft knows you are 97 years old and may have trouble remembering what you are doing. Selecting this option may allow the much younger to change or adulterate your settings. Switch to McDonald`s FREE WiFi?"

    Well I don`t know if anyone pointed this out, but this is telling you how to use the dynamic IP address in your network configuration if, for some reason, you already set up a static network configuration on your WiFi. If you did, then you don`t need this to tell you how to do it.

    If you didn`t, which most people don`t, then you just click the WiFi icon on your taskbar and click "connect."
