What a lame disgussion, as always with the pc/mac thing.

Mac and PC have different qualities, both good and bad. It depends on what you need a computer for and your personal preferences. Some people like to buildt, upgrade, customize etc. and so they need a PC. It's a lot cheaper, but you can probably fix it yourself. A PC is a little more work, but the price is low.

A Mac will cost a lot more, but it sure lasts longer... if you're not a computer wiz, but like to play around with computers mac is perfect... i have a PC, and i would like a mac but it's too expensive, i use the computer to surf the web and write homework so buying a mac for this is not neccesary...

lol so true.
macs are easier to use and don't crash, but man, they are totally uncustomizable and if it DOES crash, you are screwed.

All I got from that picture is that when a PC gets a fried hard drive, dead video card, corrupted memory, or motherboard malfunction, you only ever need to buy a new keyboard and it fixes it.

That's a comparison between a laptop and a desktop. If your laptop dies, regardless of whether it's a PC or a Mac, you will most probably need to replace the whole mobo assembly. You can replace parts on a Mac Pro, you know.

Just because it's easy to use, doesn't mean it's designed for retards. It means it's designed WELL unlike someone we know. Oh and don't give me the crap about Linux > Windows > Mac. Mac is *nix, just has a proper GUI.

erm...i didn't have to pay anything to get a part replaced in my mac...just saying. And sometimes you have to buy a new pc too so, this pic isn't necessarily true.

The sad thing about pc fanboys is, they constantly have to start a pc vs mac argument to justify why they use a pc. Has a mac user EVER started a pc vs mac war? no, because we don't give a f*uck what you choose to use, couldn't care less. enough already. be happy with your choice and shut up.

NOT TRUE. I have one Mac fanboy friend who will not stfu about my using of a PC. O.M.F.G.

Also, my PC has served me very well, it has only had one major problem in it's life, but since I switched from Vista to 7, it has worked like a dream with whip cream on top.

As a longtime Mac user (and I'm not being an idiot fanboy, just stating the facts as they pertain to my situation), I can honestly say the only thing that's ever gone bad on mine have been 5 hard drives (in 5 years), which go bad on ANY machine, not just Macs, and even then only 2 were boot drives.

Hell, my whole family uses Macs– my folks have 4 different Macs between them, my house has 5, and my in-laws have 3.

Grand total– 2 Mac Pro desktops, 5 iMacs, 2 17" MacBook Pros, and 3 MacBooks, and the only person who's ever had major hardware problems would be my brother, who steadfastly refuses to buy a Mac, even though he's been through no less than 7 different comps in the last 3 years.

That said, I'm not a retard, and neither are my parents or in-laws. We back our poo up.

Although, I'd say one drive failure per year out of the 30+ we have running isn't terrible.

i actually have to agree with this, and macs break almost as often as PCs

May be correct, but Mac's don't break


Wrong!!! My father-in-law had to take his MacBook in THREE times to get work done. Hard drive twice, motherboard once. He lost a ton of vacation pictures and other important stuff. He hadn't backed it up because "Macs don't break".

Not only did it break, it took about 2 weeks each time to get it back. I can repair my PC the same day it goes down if it needs work.

BTW, that Mustang rocks. I'd take that over the other car any day.

*invisibly

The only way around this issue, for someone like me, is to buy a prebuilt machine. To get a prebuilt PC of the same spec as this Mac Pro wouldn't actually be that much cheaper and often has the same issues with replacable parts (I'm looking at you, DELL). The same goes for a prebuilt of the same spec as an iMac, a lot of people don't include the cost of an equivalent monitor to the one that you get with an iMac.

Also, in regards to having to buy windows? Who doesn't have a windows install disk sitting about somewhere?

Beyond what I've just said above, I just find the OS easier to use; especially for design work. I -can- do what I do on a PC, I just find that OS X fits my work flow a lot better and, hey, I have a hassle free way to have all the functionality of windows too, should I ever need it!

To each his own, eh?

@piperfawn/substanceD

I'm not in any way challenging anyones choice of computer hardware/OS, just to get that out of the way. I prefer mac, you don't. That's fine.

I will certainly agree that I could get an equally powerful PC for much less than I paid for my Mac. But I would have to select it's components and assemble it/have it assembled. Custom PC's ALWAYS have some problems, it's just one of the drawbacks of having so many variables in the hardware. This is fine for some, but not for me. I just want it to work, invibily and without my input, so that I can just get on with some work/play some games.
