A computer some people seem to think sucks and is "overpriced" when building a PC with the specifications of a Mac Pro is EXACTLY the same price! Actually a little less! It is because they don't understand because of it's previous failures from OS9 to Panther. But now it is known as the most advanced operating system in the world due to it's ability to surpass almost any PC on the market in benchmarks. That TAKES SKILL M$ you can't even make an OS capable of running well on your own platform! Reasons any Mac hater is wrong:
1. Macs are no where near overpriced, go build a computer with equal specs and make sure you don't skimp on the quality of your parts you will see the Mac Pro is under-priced! FB-DIMMS are expensive as are 2 friggin Xeons!! THAT'S 8 CORES so don't complain ONLY 2 GIGS!!?!? FOR $2799!!!??! you want overpriced? Go see how fucking expensive Windows 7 is going to be and how many versions there are going to be with almost nothing added between 100s of dollars.
2. It can edit videos, pictures, and audio better than any PC on the market can hence almost everything you do related to media was done on a Mac those retarded "I'm a PC" ads DONE ON A MAC!! FAILURE M$
3. They run fast for life because they don't open every goddamn application at once upon start-up and there are almost no viruses out there for them.
4. They can run every OS on the planet efficiently and sexily.
5. The one thing I will admit is they suck for gaming...but that is all they suck at.
6. It doesn't crash when you insert a flash drive or play a video.
AND PLEASE DON'T THUMBS DOWN ME BECAUSE YOU LIKE WINDOWS BETTER. I do not hate Windows by any means I just think OS X is better...
Dude I just built myself an 8 core PC instead of a Macintosh!!
Really how much did it cost?
The 10 reasons that Apple must think is imperative for making the change from a PC to a MAC can be found on their website. Of course if you have the time to read through all of them you realise that these 10 features or reasons have been standard with the PC a long, long, long time. Some of the reasons are just plain myths that Apple invented. Probably because they ran out of fabricated facts.
So take the journey through the 10 commandments of a mac-enthusiast and enjoy their naive attitude towards personal computing.
1. The Mac... It just works
This is maybe the ultimate reason a mac owner will give you to explain why it's superior to a PC. The mac owner will tell you that all people that own macs are really satisfied with their computers and would never switch back. This is ofcourse not true.
The mac owner will also tell you that with a system from Apple you will never have to think about drivers, upgrades or anything. A mac is perfection itself when delivered. Atleast according to their standard. Many macs can't even be upgraded. So what you buy is what you get. Expect your system to be outdated within 1-2 years.
Apple also states: "Only with a Mac do you get an operating system built by the same people who built the computer it runs on.". Actually Apple's Mac OS X (the operating system) is not based on their own technology, but by the technology of freeBSD. Apple's own capabilities in form of creating an operating system have been demonstrated in previous ve...
The computer for the rest of them...
Those that can, do, those that can't use a Macintosh.
Macintosh is an OS which no common people can find a use for, and therefore it is used in elementary schools because no decent game company/programmers would waste a second of their lives even considering to create a Mac-compatible version of their programs, thus creating a distraction-free learning environment for 10 year olds.
Principal: Yeah we're recieving those new Macintosh computers today. From what I hear even less programs than the older version are compatible on it.
A computer, also known in short as "Mac". very easy to use but not many programs available for it, and useless for gamers. Some schools may have it for it's basic functions.
Bob: Name ONE thing you're PC can do that my Macintosh can't.
Me: Right click.
A large expensive paperweight typically favored by granola lovers and those who prefer not to be able to use a computer for anything worth while.
"Oh good, you have a Macintosh. Your work papers will never be blown around when the fan is on AND you never have to worry about buying any computer programs, since there are none available."
A "computer" that doesn't have shit hot stats and is not normally upgradable, making it useless to gamers, and due to a different interface, cannot be used in the workplace efficiently, making it useless to those that have a job.
Considering the fact that gaming and working are the only two plausible applications for a computer, macs are entirely useless. They can browse the internet, but then again, so can cell phones. Some say these are "media computers" having programs designed for media editing and such, but considering that even the mac word processor is a microsoft program, this arguement doesn't have much weight.
Given, they do look cool, but PCs, being upgradable, have far surpassed mac in the 'looks cool' category.
Also, the statement that PCs crash often isn't true. PCs don't just crash, the users cause them to crash. Mac users not able to cope with the fact that PCs are better try to use one, cause it to crash, and blame it on the system. PEBKAC
Mac user: "The new Macintosh for $1200 is better than any PC."
Rational person: "Wait ten days, then try to say that again."
(Also known as a "Mac") A raincoat (the first) named after Charles Macintosh, a Scottish chemist who in 1822/23 patented a method for making waterproof garments using rubber dissolved in naphtha.
Its raining cats and dogs outside lucky I brought my Macintosh.
