"DOS Computers manufactured by companies such as IBM, Compaq, Tandy, and millions of others are by far the most popular, with about 70 million machines in use wordwide. Macintosh fans, on the other hand, may note that cockroaches are far more numerous than humans, and that numbers alone do not denote a higher life form."

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.
If you want to see what your computer will be like in 3 or 4 years, look at a new Apple computer.

Apple is a company that some consider to be superior to Microsoft when it comes to computers. Macs are for the Rich bastards out there who are to busy buying Disney stock to want to deal with the crazy shenanigans that a PC will throw at you. (especially if that PC is using Vista, which tends to get paranoid about running programs). Macs are also better for porn, because they just dont get virus's. Seeing a Trojan virus on a mac is the computerized equivalent to seeing flying pigs playing croquet on pluto. PC's however, are good for playing world of warcraft...wait...mac can do that........um...ok...Pc's are good for shooting zombies, playing RTS genere games, and basicly losing I.Q points by the second.

The virdict

Mac's good for everything except games
PC's are good for the adventurous people willing to deal with the demon that is windows. And for gaming of course
Mac- "Hi, im a mac"
PC- "And im a PC"
......it is forcing me to put the word "Apple Computers" in this example...but i cant do that without being more biased than i previously was

The best computer in existence.
Apple comps rule! PCs are fucking shit.

The most advanced, user friendly and innovative operating system in existance. Originally brought back in time by Zorlof of the Xoono clan of the fifth Narnoc from the 23rd century. The ease of use of this technology frequently confuses the technical minded people used to sterile and ordinary interfaces.
My Apple computer tells me I am God.

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

A wonderful company that sells amazing products like Macs, iPods, and software. Products sold from Apple Computers are almost always stunning, fast, powerful, and rarely crash or cause other problems. Apple's main product, the Macintosh computer, is argueably the best computer in the world (specifically the G5). It runs on OS X, but is highly compatable, too. It is also equipped with a UNIX core, accessable through the Terminal. Basically it totally kicks microsoft's pathetic butt.
Jennifer- I bought a brand new iMac G5 and iPod Photo at Apple Computers, and i still cant get over how well they work!
Joe- oh really? i just bought a new PC at some dumb PC retailer and it really..... uhm.... sucks. yea.... it crashes alot and likes displaying the blue screen of death...
