Computer systems in a nutshell
#84 to #59 - fiskars (07/01/2012) [-]
I had a long pic of why you should buy a PC over a MAC, it basically said, all the parts are over-priced for mac compared to PC and you can get better (unless you're doing a custom build, which i doubt you can do with a mac unless you already own it physically, as in, you haven't bought it from the internet/store yet) stuff for cheaper than what a MAC can get you if you're just looking for buy.

PC for Gaming

Mac for other **** .

Both computers are good, just macs are extremely over-priced on your first time buy.

Also, some people are computer-retarded and don't know how to replace **** correctly, and would rather just be lazy and get conned at best-buy for tech support or buy another mac.

I have never used a mac, never will, I AM PC biased, but like i said, both OS's are good.

**** , just buy a PC, buy MacOS, install that **** , call it good. (No idea if this works btw, don't count me on this.)

Most PC's can't run MacOS

They need specific parts not every PC has. A bit like an Nvidia Graphics Card is needed for PhysX. But don't ask me what's the exact problem.

As you said both OS are good for scientific uses. I have a MacBook since March for University (Special student offer so it cost 900€ instead of 1200€; otherwise I would have staid with Windows or use an Android-Tab) I have to admit for working purposes I'm way happier than with my previous notebook with Win7. I can also ran some games (Valve-games support Mac), but for real gaming I use my own built computer with Win Vista x64

You have to spend hundreds of pounds/dollars/euros- wherever you're from- to post a Mac back into the company, and get a replacement part fixed, even though it's not a complicated part. With a pc, you can buy the component yourself, open it up and do it in 5-60 minutes depending on whether you're replacing lets say, RAM, being the least time consuming along with PCI and PCI-E cards, or replacing a cpu, or a motherboard. PCs cost much much less than a Macs, and are often more powerful. When you buy a Mac, people only buy them because it;s made by Apple, and are rather ostentatious people. But, I have to hand it to people like graphic designers and photographers, that Macs can be more helpful for those kinds of tasks. But it;s nothing that a PC can't do! Also, to date there are not many games that are on PC that have been converted to Mac. I've seen a couple like CoD:MW but as I've been told, It's not optimised for the system, as I have a friend who at least tries to game on a Mac, and says he doesn't get as good frame rates as a PC, as he's got a PC too; and if you're wondering, before anyone hates, he's got a very expensive mac, one with an i& and quite a large amount of memory for dedicated graphics. So:

> PCs are less expensive
> PC parts are much easier and less expensive to replace
> PCs are optimized for such things as gaming, and are often used in governmental issues, and many jobs.
> PCs usually have a longer lifespan, and are more powerful.
> Macs are often expensive, but if you are a graphic designer/ photographer, they are the way to go.

Hope that helps

Where I live you don't have to pay for sending your Mac to replace something. You bring it to the store of an Apple reseller and they'll do the repair.

I meant primarily the part, but I see your point

Both have their strengths and weaknesses. Apple products often are overpriced. But basically if you expect to do editing video or audio a lot, Macs have excellent software for that (not that you cant find good software for PCs) and If you like gaming then PC is better, although a lot of games are making an effort to be available on MAC now so im sure in the future that may not be the case.

The replacements on macs are harder to access. Macs also can't run a lot of games unless you use bootcamp, and if you're gonna use bootcamp you might as well just use a PC. (Bootcamp is running Windows OS on a mac.) Macs are severely overpriced for the internal specs. A pc that has the same specs as an iMac would be around only 1000 where as the iMac is 2200.

i'd say your hatred towards apple products is irrational and misplaced

hate the fandom instead..

Not apple products, everyone likes the ipod, we just all hate macs
User avatar #65 to #62 - profarnsworth (07/01/2012) [-]
yes and no. I've used apple products before, ipods/ipads/macs/iphones etc. and while they are decent the interface and overall marketing of their products just annoys the hell outta me. but yea the fandom makes it go overboard.
