Mac or PC

  1. Feb 4, 2006 #1
    Just wondering what people prefer. I myself like Mac. And now everything will change with the introduction of the intel chip in Mac computers. What do you all think??

    I would like to buy a mac, but they are expensive, and I don't want to buy a cheap mac that is slower than my current computer.

    As someone who has used both Windows and Mac boxes, I would say that I prefer Windows. Not because there is some intrinsic greatess in the Operating software, but because the number of Windows users outweights Macs users.

    I find this fact means, for example, Windows users will be the first to see highly anticipated games released in their platform first (and sometimes, ONLY in their platform). Or, websites generally target Windows Users running IE, and sometimes how the site looks on a Mac browser, or if it is even accessable, are not EVEN CONSIDERED. Well, I could go on, and on...

    Yes, that means more viruses and spyware target Windows users, but then again, I'm willing to keep my anti-virus and anti-spyware software uptodate (which is not all that difficult) to keep enjoying the benefits of being in the majority.

    PC's were the first companies to introduce speed into computers :approve: Oh yah, and the iPod alone can be considered reason enough to have apple banished from this planet.

    Apples are simple to use indeed! I mean, that is their target market remember :wink:

    No they aren't, it's just no one bothers to make many of them for mac's because most people use computers... i mean pc's :wink:

    This is debatable, to say the least. Actually Macs used to be much faster than PCs, then... not.

    This is an argument based on nothing. Most people like iPods. They also sell well. http://www.macminute.com/2003/12/22/ipod

    Wikipedia:
    For that reason, they are.

    I don't drink panzy coffee.

    Really though, everytime i walk into a Starbucks (or any other coffee shop) for my either a) Triple Espresso or b) Double Cappuccino or c) Double Machiatto, I have to suppress my urge to laugh when the blonde haired surfer guy in front of me orders a Non-fat Soy Java Mocha Latte Blast Extra Cream No Whip Decaf. Really, I want to laugh so hard every time.
