Believe me, if 95% of the world's computer owners had Mac's, there would be thousands of viruses for Mac's also.
haha almost forgot, he thinks that even if apple had owned 95% of the market share for the last 10 - 15 years(like MS has) macs still wouldnt have viruses becaue macs just dont get viruses

i seriuosly have to laugh at that kid.

Mac's are so expensive, you only see major graphic artists using them, and even the Mac Mini's are kind of pricey for what you get, a white box with an Intel motherboard
What? At least its not a Dell, which is a grey box with a Dell motherboard.

Mac's havn't been underpowered and overpriced since the '90s.


The $899 iMac is a good deal.

Try finding a "PC" laptop with 2.16Ghz Core Duo, 15.4" screen, x1600 for under $2500.

If you can even find one.

The last time i used a Macintosh was a PowerMac from 1996. It was gutless...


I'm sure AMD offers a processor similar to Core Duo, and a 17" LCD starts at $200. Video cards are pretty pricey though.

Lol, have you seen the "Post your fastest SuperPI times" thread in the overclocking section?

Uber overclocked Opterons can't handle the Core Duo. I have second place. Lemme find the link.

That's impressive

*What's even more impressive is that Shumway got the 29'th spot with a Sempron 2600...it must be UBER overclocked *

Good post, General. You made some excellent points.

I still wouldn't buy a Mac, though. It's just the sheer principle of the matter.

Believe me, I'm no Windows fanboy. I despise Microsoft and their strongarm tactics. But Windows is what I use, good or bad. I like being able to click, download, and use anything I want from anywhere I want.

True, the only reason I can do this is because Windows has an ungodly saturation of the world market... but that can be used as a good thing.

I guess it's the whole 'elitist' attitude of Apple that gets under my skin. I can take a lot of things in stride... but being looked down on because I'm not in the 'inner circle' ain't one of them. Never have, never will.

Meh, that's just me, I guess.

By all means, use what you like. But lots of Windows fanboys have these anti-Mac blind folds on, and they are missing out on a lot of really cool stuff...


BTW, I'm typing this from Windows Vista

This is a huge improvement from those ugly blue title bars.

hrmm.. i'm a semi user of mac, every once in a while i have to pic it up at work. its a bit confusing for me only because i have not read up on it or anything.. but osx is not bad in anyway. i must say.. it launches adobe products alot faster than windows

and on a serperate i've tried installing the windows vista (beta) on my comp.. but i can't figure out how to image the cd so i could boot on load up.. so i was out of luck there..... but i really do want to try it.. set it up on a seperate partition...

I know how it would be done with Linux/Vista, but XP/Vista is out of my realm of knowledge.
