Company which either invented or was first to adopt many of the concepts, technologies and language used by desktop computer users today. In fact, the "Desktop" metaphor for the graphical representation of the computer's contents is one of the ideas that Apple refined and made popular in 1983. Microsoft later licensed the use of much of Apple's graphical user interface (the mouse pointer, the Trash / Recycle Bin, pop-up menus, etc.).

Apple Labs invented TrueType font technology, QuickTime, and IEEE-1394, among others. Apple also invented the word "multimedia," which is now used to describe most of the desktop computers sold today.
Apple is also the first company to launch a succesful commecial online music service.

An innovative company who has had many people copy it's available-in-five-colours idea, also first personal computer to feature a graphical user interface.

Many seem to hate Apple without reason claiming "It has no games" or "It's ghey lewlz". Fact is, top selling games have apple ports, including the Sims, and such.

1) A high-speed, highly productive professional tool used by people in the top fields of the entertainment industry, graphic and web design.
Often hated on by people who don't understand anything about it, or base their judgements on older models. Lasts longer than a PC, comes pre-installed with drivers, easily communicates with external devices, has no viruses (and therefore has no need for anti-virus software that takes up all the memory) and is completely user friendly.
It comes with a mouse that has one button, but people do not understand that you can attach any other mice to it, and it recognises it without driver installation.
Not optimised for computer gaming, but only nerds and 12 year olds buy a computer soley for gaming. All popular titles can work on an Apple Mac anyway.
Highly priced because it's worth it.

2) A company that manufactures and distributes the Apple Mac computer, notebooks and the world famous ipod and itunes music store.

3) Not an immitation of a PC, because people don't understand that historically, a mac came before the PC.
1) I will create 5 movie posters in Adobe Photoshop on a Mac in the time it takes a PC to load photoshop. I just received an email from a friend about a virus going around... delete.

2) Everyone has an apple iPod. iPods are the best on the market and iTunes is the most productive music downloading store in the world.

3) People are ignorant and bitter that htye can't afford an Apple Computer

The original designers of Windows. They were using thier own GUI when developing and Bill Gates bought it from them on the cheap and proceeded to market it as his own making a fortune. So a good definition would be Unlucky and shortsighted
