Clearly the author of the image, I'm assuming it's op for argument's sake, has no clue about computers at all.
Whereas the ********* of Mac vs PC comments are concerned, here's the truth: macs nowadays have the same hardware as a regular pc. However, the OS that is used for macs is tailor made for the HW used, providing a more stable and efficient system. I once did a blog post about this going into much more detail about it all. But alas, it was lost when I closed my site down.

They're like PCs but three times more expensive.
#245 to #242 - newall (08/22/2012) [-]
there is no argument that they aren't more stable from me, however, they do suck for serious gaming.
#249 to #245 - doakinslayer (08/22/2012) [-]
That is true. However, that's not apple's fault really, it's the game developer's. Oh, and I really do hope you haven't opened the floodgates for the console vs pc game issue on my comment, because that will be a ball ache for us both.
#254 to #249 - newall (08/22/2012) [-]
nononono, do not want, but the reason i dislike macs for gaming isn't the software or the lack of games, its the difficulty upgrading them, the access is terrible and the parts are almost never top-notch, so they WILL need upgrading.
#267 to #254 - doakinslayer (08/22/2012) [-]
Well that I agree on. You can't upgrade a Mac. Macs are, let's say, idiot proof (god I wish my article was still up, all these points were raised). Apple base their systems on the use their customers give it.nim sure that if big name game developers tried to capture the Mac market, then we'd see a huge improvement in HW.

and they're usually much more expensive for the hardware.
#255 to #248 - doakinslayer (08/22/2012) [-]
And they should be, a lot more work goes into them. Oh and I, in no way am a macfag, I've used windows/Linux based systems all my life.

Implying you even need 2 hard-drives.
#319 to #232 - anon (08/22/2012) [-]
it's actually best to have AT LEAST two hard drives. One for the OS install and one for everything else.

Apple makes billions and they arent going anywhere anytime soon. So just stop bitching about it. Plus they dont care what any of you have to say. They are still making more money in a day then any of us will in our whole lives.
User avatar #229 - sgtstacke (08/22/2012) [-]
yeah... i have a macbook pro and it can use multiple hard drives, and i have a program that comes with the computer that lets me have the windows software and my mac OS, so i can play PC games on my mac and have my mac, which is better.
User avatar #258 to #229 - grimsho (08/22/2012) [-]
That's not how computers work.

You mean operating system, and macs can have multiple harddrives.
User avatar #222 - piclemaniscool (08/22/2012) [-]
I don't really have too much opinion on the software (the only difference between a mac and "other" pcs) but the prices make me want to hurt someone. Macbook air with less than 2 Ghz processor: $1,100. Even though the computer I just got is a desktop, about $900 with 8 core 3.6 Ghz.
Hell, my laptop from 2007 has at least 2.3 and it was only $900 because it's a tablet PC. **** your marketing, Apple. I got my iPhone for free and I wouldn't pay more than $100 for the newest one.
User avatar #216 - zapgod (08/22/2012) [-]
the only bad thing i have to say about macs is the price. im a graphic designer i use them everyday. i have to use PCs too i dont have a problem with them, there not the best tool for my kind of work but i use them for plenty of other stuff. why hate on them so bad.
User avatar #221 to #216 - commiecomrade (08/22/2012) [-]
What programs do you use?
#374 to #221 - zapgod (08/22/2012) [-]
Adobe Web and Design Premium CS6 Extended along with a few others including Corel Painter, Sketchbook Express and Anime Studios. i also use a Wacom Intuos 5 pen tablet

Tell me how you can't use them for the PC.
User avatar #388 to #384 - zapgod (08/24/2012) [-]
i can, its just there layout it 10 times more complicated then they should be on a PC and its takes me almost as 4 times as long to get the same result. not to mention macs are build for better quality graphics rendering and PCs are not.
User avatar #389 to #388 - commiecomrade (08/24/2012) [-]
The layout is 10 times more simple for me. Also, it's not "built for graphics" or anything. Everything pertaining to that is based on speed. You just need something that can quickly render out graphics. I built my computer for doing games and as such, it is fast at rendering graphics.

I'm not hating on macs. I just see it as a purely personal preference rather than a "Better or Worse" argument.
User avatar #390 to #389 - zapgod (08/24/2012) [-]
it not just the speed, you can have the fastest PC in the world im saying they render graphics with a quality that PCs just dont have. and i can understand you think its simpler because your used to PCs and Macs are quite alien to you. nut MAcs are MADE for these programs. there is a reason for it
User avatar #393 to #390 - commiecomrade (08/25/2012) [-]
Please explain how. When you render something on a Mac, does it actually come out better?
User avatar #394 to #393 - zapgod (08/25/2012) [-]
yes it does, and faster. the paths the curves and the over all layout of a Mac operating system and better suited for arts. there expensive as hell and thats pretty much all they can do but hey.
User avatar #395 to #394 - commiecomrade (08/25/2012) [-]
That doesn't make the end result better. I prefer the layout of PC's (for some reason), and I've used both with an open mind.

Then again, I preferred Blender (3D modeling program) when it was a UI mess and before it switched to looking like 3ds Max. Never got any good at it though.

Nah. Real conversation=
Mac Users: "Dude you have a PC? Why not go spend $1800 on something you basically already have because of course you are wealthy like I am."

PC Users: "I have a PC cause I like games with graphics better than Mine Sweeper."
