You'd end up paying the same amount if you bought an equivalent PC with all of the professional grade programs. Your arguments are the equivalent to "I bought this great Ford Fusion because it's a great family car, why on earth would someone buy a Rolls Royce?" Just because you don't have the need for the programs doesn't mean the computer is bad...
User avatar #89 to #71 - silasdg (11/25/2012) [-]
That's true I would pay the same amount. Now tell me how many people actually use all of those professional grade programs on a mac to the extent that it's justifiable?

If I packaged a program with Windows like CAD that 90% of my actual users wont be using would it be justifiable to sell it for insanely high prices?

This would all be fine if most of the users buying Macs had legitimate purposes for these programs but they don't. Also Apple has no value listed for most of those pre-packaged programs so simply saying they're expensive isn't very supportive of your point.

Your argument is invalid.

>save up for a $2,200 MacBook
>buy a Razer Blade gaming laptop for $1,500
>Razer Blade has a quad-core processor and 2 video cards and 10 GB of RAM
>spend the rest on hookers and coke
#58 to #53 - silasdg (11/25/2012) [-]
Neither Razer Blade laptop is

A. $1,500
B. Equipped with dual graphics cards.
C. Equipped with 10GB RAM

On top of that the Quad Core Razer is $2,500

Still I prefer PC regardless.

It still is if you note the bottom left hand of the screenshot. (and my second comment) but it didn't have any of the specs suggested.
User avatar #59 to #58 - silasdg (11/25/2012) [-]
Edit: With promo code the Dual Core is $1,500

Still no where near the config suggested.

Actually, got a brand new laptop, for 700, and a badass 1968 vw bug for 800. Grand total for car and laptop, 1500. Grand total for a macbook? 2,200.
User avatar #54 to #51 - pokemonstheshiz (11/25/2012) [-]
That's pretty cheap for a working car (I'm assuming it's in good condition?) you are pretty lucky.
User avatar #190 to #54 - Scenekid (11/25/2012) [-]
Yeah, with a rebuilt engine and everything. It runs, and is it really good shape. No rust.

Well, there's this thing where you don't pay the entire price of the car at one time. It's called a down payment, followed by monthly payments until the car is completely paid for

dude i can say that i love my macbook much more than my PC i had before. And the reason i got it was for music production, so that only makes sense. But i agree if you want to do any gaming then a mac is a bad choice. I just record n browse n **** on this thing.

Must have been a ****** car. Macs are expensive, but nowhere near the price of a half decent car.

I dunno man, the Mac Pro can get pretty pricey.

I got a 2002 Ford Focus with under 10k miles, no defects (but had window stickers,) for less than $2k. It's possible to get a decent car for that amount of cash, you just need to look and be willing to compromise.
User avatar #43 to #42 - heartlessrobot (11/25/2012) [-]
Under 2k. That's great, but the difference between a decent Mac and a decent Windows computer was about half that last time I checked.
User avatar #45 to #43 - thepalmtoptiger (11/25/2012) [-]
Getting an equal laptop is impossible, but an equal desktop is difficult, but possible if you get stuff on sale (Cyber-Monday is coming up.)
User avatar #46 to #45 - heartlessrobot (11/25/2012) [-]
Performance wise, as long as you don't try to game or anything, they can be equal. Besides, most people here just use it to surf the internet. I don't really have a preference.
User avatar #94 to #46 - thepalmtoptiger (11/25/2012) [-]
I'd prefer a PC BECAUSE I use it to game. Honestly, I have nothing against OSX, but I refuse to by a Mac because of how expensive they are. I would much rather go through the trouble of installing the OS on to a non-Apple PC for a fraction of the cost..
User avatar #34 to #6 - pocketstooheavy (11/25/2012) [-]
Go back to the Apple store.
User avatar #20 to #6 - enkmaster (11/25/2012) [-]
Theres a decent car you can get from India that has the record for cheapest brand new automobile, and its 2900$. Labor is quite cheap there, I suppose.
User avatar #27 to #20 - heartlessrobot (11/25/2012) [-]
Well, I don't live in India. I might be able to get new tires for that much.
User avatar #28 to #27 - enkmaster (11/25/2012) [-]
You could order it. Shipping would probably cost about as much as those tires.
User avatar #29 to #28 - heartlessrobot (11/25/2012) [-]
Then why doesn't everyone own this car?
User avatar #33 to #29 - enkmaster (11/25/2012) [-]
Because its made in ******* india and costs 3 grand. I said it was cheap and had a record, I didnt say it was good.

you could total that can with a god damn bike.
User avatar #35 to #33 - heartlessrobot (11/25/2012) [-]
Then I think I'll stick with a bicycle until I land a job. I don't want to be picked out of an 18-wheeler's driveshaft.

Nah if its a certain type of high end mac you save about 3000 dollars by switching to PC

target price
#4 - John Cena (11/24/2012) [-]
that has to be some piece of **** car, since you couldn't have saved more than 100 or 200 dollars.
