I am sick of snobby Mac people acting like PC's, Microsoft, and Windows all make them vomit. You know what? Apple people make me vomit. Let's get to the bottom of this debate right now and settle it once and for all.
Apple people say that PC's always crash and Mac's never do. They also say that Mac's are much better for graphics. The reality is that used to be true, but now much of the same hardware, processors, memory, and graphic chipsets are used in both PC's and Mac's. And yes Windows used to have a lot of memory-related operational problems causing it to crash but every generation of Windows improves upon the last. I have seen both Mac's and PC's crash. Mac's are not immune to hardware, software, or OS problems. As a matter of fact, most of the people that I know who claim the greatness of the Mac are all having problems with them right now. They're over-rated and people are sucked into paying almost twice as much for the same brains just with different packaging.
I will hand it to Apple though, they win in the looks category. Why does every PC have to be so damn clunky and ugly? Did Apple and Mac patent rounded corners, glossy finishes, and cool icons? From their handheld devices to their laptops and desktops, Apple/Mac are always cutting edge and futuristic looking.
But I can't stand the one button mouse. What's up with that? Can Apple people not multi-task with their mouse buttons? They are only able to point and click on one thing at a time? Do Apple people use both hands on the mouse too? Someone should tell them its not a Ouija Board.
The bottom line is that regardless of which operating system you use, the best computer is the one with the fastest CPU and most amount of memory. Hands-down, those are the two variables that make the most difference when it comes to your computer-using experience. I think Mac people overpay for their computers and claim its because the Mac outperforms the PC. Last time I checked, sitting at Starbucks checking your email isn't really a true measure of computing performance, you yuppies. The reality is that Mac people pay more for their computers because they like the way it looks and want to be part of an elite club of snobs. I want something that's going to get the job done, not be expensive to replace if I drop it, and has universally accepted programs and file types. PC's are the most customizable for your specific application, there are tons of vendors, Windows gets better with every version, and you know that every computer lab or internet cafe you walk into will have the same Microsoft/Windows based programs on it. With Apple, you are at their mercy for hardware and software. Assuming Congress and Obama don't decide to pass a new bill requiring the use of one type of computer over another in the name of economic stimulation, I'm sticking with PC's, Dell's to be specific.
Don't worry though Apple people, at least you guys have really great commercials.
