Why would you continue to hate on macs.

At this point there is only one thing separating them from being a standard pc, and that is the ability to run osx natively.

Other than that, you can do the exact same things on either. They both will run windows and thus are identical.

You must not understand the history and what it represents.. PC is old Skool mod/geekism.. The PC is the commanding force of super home brewed computers.. the Mac is some non overclocked junk, lol

Don't even get me started on Dell...

Yep... I'm a hater - Everyone has to hate something.. else how would we know how?

I don't see how you can actually game on a Mac... It is like violating all that is good.

StealthTools: Why would you overclock a laptop?

I am planning on getting this one from Apple: The Apple Store (U.S.)

I need other laptop manufacturer that you think is good with Windows.

I said nothing about overclocking a laptop...

I don't know much about laptops except that you can't do much with gaming on them.. and most get hot fast.

you can game fine on a laptop... and they get hot but usually don't overheat unless you have no idea what you're doing... also mac fanboys i would agree can be some of the worst people to deal with, but the fact remains, in terms of usage for a basic user where the only thing neccesary is usability and ease of use, mac's are the way to go. pc's are terrible for people who really don't know what they are doing. mac's walk you through everything so yeah.. also mac's work way more effectively then pc's and in my opinion are so much easier to setup and deal with, cause you get the mac, you plug in the mouse and keyboard unless their wireless, and you plug in the mac, turn it on and you can start using your computer.

+1 although if you buy like a voodoo or a dell xps they give you specific oc'ing options, like preset options that will automatically oc everything to a somewhat stable setting. but for the most part you are 100% right.

Default Re: Custom-Built Desktop

Can I have 2 different Operating Systems in the laptop (Windows and Mac)? Will it cause any problem?

Should I buy the parts before or after moving? I have heard bad stuff when u ship ur tower.
