i am a Microsoft kid and my father works at microsoft, but i got to say these apple fanboys know nothing about using PC, Apple is restricting you from using other softwares that did not come from them, and also Mac is just another Overpriced Linux, because they are both under a UNIX kernel, except Macs have BSD kernels.... and in Mac you can't do gaming except for Angry birds (i love them!) and also a little bit of steam but that's kinda old. what you can do in Mac could be doable in PC's
Everyone whose macs break just use them as they did with their PC. Not caring about it. My MBP has never needed a fix since 2006 when I first bought it, and it still runs the latest software without any problem. I didn’t love my previous PC, but i love my mac
And FYI — My oldest and still working mac is from 1992 and comparing them to a 1992 Toshiba (that i also have) Macs were ahead of its time. And it is now. And like it happened to Newton, people just didn’t get it that Macs are future.
Linux and M$ are getting strong though. Let’s see what Win8 and Linux will become
Alright Mac Rules... maybe 5 years from now when they decide to include a video card that's half as good as mine in their mac pro line. Whatever, this wallpaper was just asking for it haha. Hipsters...
In terms of a business standpoint where graphic design is your business Macs do rule, but everything else that would be a negative. I'm sorry to say that macs are a hipster product where people go to look cool and think there cool because they have a fancy way of checking there Facebook. Until you can get the 100% customization of non integrated hardware theirs no competition market for Macs. My father and sister own a mac and if something is broken they have no choice but return to the Mac store pay there obscene charge to replace/fix the problem that was under warranty in the first place. You could make the same argument about PC parts being the same, but I can't count how many times I have had something RMA'd replaced for free just had to pay the shipping costs. If I was to make a argument based on software I would pit Linux off against Windows. As modding and customization where the customer's creativity can run rampant whether its case modding or software modding PC will always win. That's just my 2 cents but nice picture the Mac Fanboys love it I'm sure, sorry couldn't help myself.
i think i'm going to have to politely disagree with you, bushido45. I'm gonna say that PCs and Macs are both amazing and both suck lol. and Here's why:
SOFTWARE the software that Mac OS Supports is great. don't get me wrong. but the APIs used for software development are exclusive, and the OS is closed source. this severely limits development for the platform. Also, from what i understand, Apple makes people jump through hoops to develop for MacOS or iOS. PCs and Windows based platforms never had that problem, because anyone who knows how to code can develop for it, and though Windows is for the most part closed source, it's a LOT more open than Mac OS will ever be.
HARDWARE PC wins this round easily. Windows doesn't really care what kind of hardware it runs on. it's FAR more varied and FAR more customizable than most macs will be. That being said, there are some macs that you can exchange the hardware on...but you better hope there are Mac OS Drivers for that device
VIRUS PROTECTION While PCs are prone to more viral attacks, due to the formentioned looser lock on their source APIs, Mac systems are actually at more risk, and i'll tell you why. Most viruses written for Windows aren't system crippling. Boot in safe mode, run your antivirus. problem solved. Earlier i mentioned that Macs are harder to develop for...but that doesn't mean you can't (hell, they got STEAM now ). on Mac systems, the few viruses you get for Macs ARE system crippling, to my understanding anyway. they can and WILL brick your system.
I apologize if i come off as douchey, it was not my intention. All i was aiming for is to show the pros and cons of both systems. Personally, i am a PC person strictly because of the compatability of the software and the modular capabilities of the hardware...and i'm a gamer, and most games are on PC. if i was NOT a gamer, i would most likely be running a top of the line Mac.
The virus system part i don't exacty agree, but i agree. I had to help my dad fix his computer *He's a computer geek, also* A virus was downloaded to his windows/mac computer, mostly the windows part. It was lcked to a "FBI federal law" screen and te only thing he could do was, go on his mac part, and destroy the virus. Hell, if he didn't have a mac, he would be 200% screwed. Yes, indeed that Macs don't have many, but system crippling viruses, but windows has it's own variations, also, just not well known because people aren't stupid as f***. I'd have to say, you are partially correct, jus not 100% yet.
err, change the "Virus Protection" because mac's nowadays are now prone to virus more than you think or expect, Flashback viru and other fatal Java viruses could break your Mac OS to pieces,
also change the "SOFTWARE" Windows Operating systems provides freedom (but not freedom like in linux) of choosing your software and also Microsoft software or not, Windows still accepts ALL software as long as there are no viruses containing it, cause in Windows you are free to customize it (but not like in linux) free of putting anything on it. and does not limit you from choosing your own softwares (but not like Linux)
I'm not going to say I like one way or the other as it is a matter of personal opinion otherwise I'll start a flame war (Other images of MAC likers are like a PC is an old man and "Fuddy-Duddy" while a MAC is like a young guy and updated to the modern world just saying). But these comparison wars I don't really get into it's just like Pepsi vs. Coke, Guitar Hero vs. Rockband, etc. again it's all a matter of preference. (Well if you must know I have a PC/Windows 7 I like it I've had no real problems so far)
seeing as they do more and are fully customizable to look and feel exactly like a mac, i feel sorry for you having spent so much money for less hardware than mine. Talk about getting shafted by the corporation, hipster
