A computer that is great for people who don't want to do gaming and can run a special version of Microsoft office. Most people complain that the mac can't do games. This is true. However, Macs are not intended to be used for games. They are actually great for things like film making, graphic design, and other applications. However, it is not useful to the general public.
My Macintosh is great, but most people wouldn't like it, because it can't play "Doom"

Macintosh is the best type of computer available. It's often frowned upon by snooty PC enthusiasts who deem it useless and/or incapable of updating; however, it is now very easily updated. Also, Macs can run Windows, OS X, and Linux operating systems all at once! So there's no point in arguing that they can't use much software because they can run Windows applications. Also, they're faster, better in design, and simply more effective than your typical - or even your brand-new - PC.
The laptops are also stronger and have a much longer battery life.
Dude: Hey, I got this new PC and it's really cool! Glad I don't have a shitty Mac, cuz they have no programs.
Chick: Get out of the stone age, Macs have tons of programs and they're more efficient than any fuckin' PC. Get a Macintosh.
Dude: Stupid bitch! -shot-

A computer sold by Apple. Sometimes shortened to mac. Use the Mac OSX operating system. Macintoshes are used by mostly students, designers, artists, and similar professions. Beaten down by PC (Windows) audience for not being good for gaming. That's why they aren't designed for gaming. Otherwise Macs perform as well as computers with the same specifcations as them.
Normal Macintosh User: I own a mac and I don't play many games on it. If I wanted to play games, I would buy a PC.
Normal PC User (in this case a gamer): I HATE THOSE F***ING MAC USERS. MACS SUCK, THEY HAVE NO GAMING CAPABILITIES WHATSOEVER AND CAN'T GODDAM RIGHT CLICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A work horse computer, made for reliability and usability. Based on unix. Similar to a work truck, not the funnest thing to drive, but gets the job done and is always there when u need it. It is also used in creative projects, such as video editing, flash, websites etc. My pc may not have been as costly and may be alot more performance orientated, capable of playing all the latest games and programs. But sadly enough, sometimes, it just doesn't perform...
Most macintosh perspectives are based on outdated or misinformed opinions, common reference to those macs used in elementary school, those computers did suck, and are not to be confused with a modern OS9+ model powermac, which most people have never had the chance to operate. While both pc's and Mac's are both great computers in their own light, if u wish to go the extra mile and cash out a few extra bucks for a real reliable and secure computer, then my suggestion would be a macintosh. That or atleast a stable linux system.
1. My macintosh is just as fast as it was when i bought it 8 months ago. It was just as fast yesterday. It was just a fast today, and i think ill put my money that it will boot up tomorrow and be just as fast.
2. My pc may not boot due to failing hard drives, bios difficulties, bootloader failures....that and windows.
3."When my pc starts cussing me out, i just pull the plug and turn to my mac, thats if im not on it already."
4. The rolls royce of personal computers, sleek, powerful, well designed and reliable, Owner-" So what do i owe you?" mechanic " What are you talking about? Rolls royces dont break down"
