apple computers are so much more expensive than even a prebuilt windows, which is more expensive than building your own
and macs require more powerful hardware for gaming
and there aren't as many games on mac
convinced?

whats so great about the OS? is there anything it can do that ANY other os cant? and even cheaper? feel free to join the, like 9%?, of the world and buy an apple, or you could just learn a few things and be your own person, unless you really like paying excessively for everything. virus's arent even a valid topic, ease of use is based on the knuckle head at the keyboard, and upgrade paths are also a no brainer.

on another note, if games would run natively on linux, there wouldnt be any need for other os's. (especially the proprietary poo called mac.)

Use whatever you want. If you don't mind paying more for your hardware and having a much more limited selection of software, then switch right on over to Mac.

As an IT Pro, I find it's the computer of choice for most hardcore UNIX/Linux admins. I was at the USENIX LISA conference this past fall and I'd say over 50% of the sysadmins had Macs. And these folks are the top people in the industry. As a computer geek I think it's important to have a broad background in lots of operating systems. There are pros and cons to all types of computers.

Why would anyone talk you out of buying a mac? They make great products that chinese people work hard to create - in fact they work so hard it makes the product to die for.

To quote Yoda: "If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny"

What I'm trying to say here is- DON'T. It's a solid fact that Macintosh brand hardware is more expensive, than a PC of the same quality. So there is no point in buying Mac hardware. If you like Mac OSX then use it on a PC. But if your going to game- Mac is not the way to go very few games are released on Mac (in comparison to a PC).

Just my two cents.

From my experience with the new Macbooks, I must say that I'm not impressed.

1. You can do almost anything on a Mac on a Windows/PC
2. Macs have overheating issues. (Browser page open and Minecraft=Vacuum Cleaner)
3. Macs are overpriced
4. Macs are slow. (I was recently experiencing issues with my Macbook Pro being slow, so I reinstalled the whole OS. No difference. Everything still hangs)

But it depends if you want a good looking laptop or a laptop with a good price/performance ratio

If we are talking purely about laptops, I'd say go with Mac. In my case, at the very least, they are far more cost-efficient and they don't need to be tinkered around with. My both Windows laptops have broken down in less then two years where as my family's both MacBooks have lasted already 4 years without any problems. Even though my mother understands nothing about computers and keeps the HDD stuffed full all the time, the machine itself is almost as fast as it was a few years back.

Another thing is battery life. The MacBooks work fine without a power supply for hours but the much younger Windows laptops were useless in this regard. The other lasted around 1,5 hours and the other just half an hour even if it was charged full.

Plus Macs are smaller and in my opinion better-looking.


Maybe I've just had bad luck with Windows laptops but I find no good reason to buy one. Go with Mac.
