Apple device user who believes doggedly in the superiority of anything produced by Apple but lacks any actual technical knowledge. Mactards have no idea how computers actually work and eventually lose all ability to operate even the most rudimentary technological devices because they lack Apple's look-and-feel.

A computer user who has forgotten (or is ignorant of) the true purpose of the computers existence. A mactard is oblivious to the fact that the computer is a tool for doing legitimate work but is enamored by how cool his MAC looks.

Someone who thinks Apple computers are a godsend having zero knowledge that they're not as bulletproof as Apple claims. These people blindly pay the hefty price premium for an Apple computer just to surf the web, listen to music & check email. And they think they're better than everyone else because their computer is shiny & polished which is apparently more important than performance or battery life. To them, it's form over function.

Apple says Macs are "immune" to infection. Is that why you can buy Norton Anti-Virus for Mac? If Macs are so perfect & "just work", then why does Apple quietly release updates (i.e. Snow Leopard which is a 170MB update & contains multiple security patches, bug fixes & stability tweaks?
PC User - Nice new Macbook you got there. Have you updated to the latest service pack?

Mac User - Huh? No need, it's perfect, I just downloaded & installed the latest Snow Leopard It was only 170 megabytes so no big deal!

PC User - You know what a 170 megabyte update is right?

Mac User - No, what?

PC User - That's a Service Pack, like what you would find in Windows.

Mac User - (covers ears) - No! I don't believe you, la la la la la la!!!

PC User - What a Mactard....

Someone who could be classified as retarded, yet still possesses enough knowledge to make others believe he is capable of difficult tasks, thus creating suffering from his ineptitude.

Typically encountered in the workplace, MacTards can be dangerous and unpredictable. Unlike someone who is merely retarded and familiar with their limitations, MacTards have great confidence in their ability.
Nick: “We both just got fired for letting Pete put the books away?"

Dave: "How?"

Nick: “Somehow while putting them on the shelves he ended up lighting our office on fire.”

Dave: “I told you not to leave those matches and oily rags down there around that MacTard.”
