My graphics card won't let me boot into Linux.
I have to switch to my on board graphics to use Linux.
The ONLY downside to my EVGA GTX 550 ti Fermi.

im not talking about the 1990s but... those neon lights have been out for a while. i remember my aunt had a computer (like 6 years ago) that had a button that made the whole thing light up different colors

1990 to 2012 =/= 20 years.

Want something simple? Mac.
Do lots of heavy duty audio/visual/media editing? Mac.
Want to game? PC
Want to upgrade as you go and not be afraid of voiding your Warranty? PC.
Macs are OK at most things,but are way way over priced(in terms of hardware vs capability) But if you want the best bang for your buck,build a FrankenMac. Build the PC and then add in the Mac OSX. Just saved yourself a ton of money.

******* warranties, lol
User avatar #44 to #33 - thamuz (08/25/2012) [-]
Oh god..I hate it so much. Im a computer Tech for my friends/family. I fix their PCs for the cost of parts+10$. I cant fix their computers UNLESS i use Apple Specific Parts and I have to make sure to not touch the stupid as **** stickers on them or else it voids the entire item.

**** you and your invasive warranty procedures apple..
User avatar #55 to #31 - blargtastic (08/25/2012) [-]
Heavy audio/visual/media can be done just as easily on PC my friend. Macs are just more expensive and are somewhat idiot proof due to their Nazi software/hardware.
User avatar #57 to #55 - thamuz (08/25/2012) [-]
Personally,I think simpler is better. Windows Movie Maker blows asschunks. Never had good luck with it. Most people I know who do it prefer mac. So who knows. Personal preference. Just my rule of thumb.

Again,look at final point:build own PC(get to pick awesome parts) then run Mac OSX on it and bam. MOst people buy macs for the case,just like the Alienwares now

WMM does suck. I use adobe after effects/Sony Vegas Pro

I think Mac ships with Garage Band if I recall correctly. I know I have a copy of Snow Leopard running around somewhere...
User avatar #64 to #62 - blargtastic (08/25/2012) [-]
It does; however, the things you can do with garageband is very limited. Now, that's not to say that the things created are not of quality; however, the tools available are not as flexible as on other programs such as FL Studio.
User avatar #56 to #31 - blargtastic (08/25/2012) [-]
Although they make good musis players/accessories and mobile phones. I still prefer android for it's ability to be customized easily.
User avatar #58 to #56 - thamuz (08/25/2012) [-]
Zune <3 Gotta get a new 30gb model soon.
Gonna get an HTC when the price comes down on the one I Want.

Hate Apple phones/media players cause a new one comes out far too quickly(and they their planned obsolescence phases kick in a bit too fast for me)
User avatar #63 to #58 - blargtastic (08/25/2012) [-]
Yeah, I just bought the Ipod Classic 180 gb or whatever it is. I have a ******** of music and I needed one that would last a while and store a lot. The ipod classic is the only apple product I would recommend to anyone.
User avatar #65 to #63 - thamuz (08/25/2012) [-]
Pretty much. I had a Zune 30 and loved it. Then it kicked the bucket when it got ran over :( gonna get a new one soon. Sucks that MS wants everyone to go to the new Windows Phones now.
User avatar #67 to #65 - blargtastic (08/25/2012) [-]
Wow, harsh bro. I've still got all of my older ipods. None of them have any scratches or fingerprints on them and I've had them from 3-8 years respectively.
User avatar #68 to #67 - thamuz (08/25/2012) [-]
Getting hit by a semi after my ex left it on the roof of my truck. yeah,and it still worked for bout a week. I got a Gen 1 iTouch roaming around.
User avatar #74 to #68 - blargtastic (08/25/2012) [-]
I love the zunes, but I prefer the UI of the ipods. They are simple, which is all I want from a music player. Everything else, I want to be able to modify the **** out of without them trying to stop me from doing so.
User avatar #70 to #68 - blargtastic (08/25/2012) [-]
Lol, my Itouch is sitting on my desk charging right now. It has all my old music from back when I was in 6th grade middle school a long-ass time ago.

It's almost impossible to build your own Mac with he same parts apple uses because they use primarily custom parts. But If you mean just run the OS on a OC that is basically the same. Not quite as sleek, but same capabilities
User avatar #92 to #86 - thamuz (08/25/2012) [-]
From taking apart enough apples to know,very few parts are special order. iMacs sure(as its all integrated into the monitor) but a standard mac build with a normal case is really the same parts with an Apple Certified sticker on them.

im pretty sure pc's still get ****** up alot easier than mac's, in my experience, it took a potato to **** up a mac
User avatar #36 to #18 - Creant (08/25/2012) [-]
But unlike a mac, if a PC gets messed up, if you have the proper skill and knowledge you can fix it back like easy! But if a mac gets a damaged component, or somewhere in the software, it's pretty much impossible to fix it and you gotta buy a whole new one. Hell, even the apple keyboards cant be fixed at home!
User avatar #41 to #36 - ecstaticpants (08/25/2012) [-]
Macs aren't hard to fix. I've had one for 4 years with little to no problems, all of them easily fixable.
User avatar #37 to #36 - biggrand (08/25/2012) [-]
true, but if you **** up a mac you really need to question your even purpose and existence in this world

Have you seen the PC cases that they sell for custom builds?

I built my PC case. It's a chair. I put spare fans in so you have cooling around your waist when you sit down. It's also a recliner. Leather too. GTX 690 graphics card in it also. With 32 gigs of 1600mhz of RAM. Intel 3930K processor. The all new physics cards to take some weight off of my GPU also. With three 50" plasma TV's for eyefinity.

I wish.
User avatar #160 to #84 - colegaleener (08/25/2012) [-]
What are you going to do with 32 gigs of ram? All you need tops is like 8 or 12..
User avatar #174 to #160 - heraske (08/25/2012) [-]
32 gigs of RAM to last me the next few generations of games if they decide to progress slowly, otherwise I'd go with 8 to 10 Gigs max and 6 minimum.
User avatar #175 to #174 - colegaleener (08/25/2012) [-]
I doubt they'll start making better games until late next year when the next gen gaming consoles come out.. not much has changed in consoles since 2005, it's time for an upgrade
User avatar #176 to #175 - heraske (08/25/2012) [-]
Well let's hope along with next generation gear they finally make a god damn game worth playing. You know, perhaps a few more great GOTY-worthy star wars games instead of this Force Unleashed God Mode bull **** . Let's hope the 99% are worth the 60$ and not out there to be dumbed down for the younger generation of dumbasses. I'm still enjoying KOTOR and Legend of Zelda, and those actually take a little bit of sense to complete. I'm sick and tired of linear story lines. Also, I know Mass Effect is a good game to others and I have played the Mass Effect series seldomly, I personally never got into it. Also, I've heard they've been moneywhoring to make people pay for the actual ending. Yep, can't wait for the next solid Star Wars game. I want a game like SWKOTOR with improved realistic graphics. Just imagine that, star wars with graphics of say, BF 3 or Halo? Or since Bioware made ME series, they could easily just use an improved engine of ME to make a new SWKOTOR series! Omg, the possibilities. Let's take Crysis for example, not the greatest game. Pretty boring single player, I admit I was pretty disappointed, and not the greatest multiplayer. Although I liked the open Crysis multiplayer and that, it was just laggy, that's all. The player had a not-too-great storyline but you could actually roam around the area, unlike battlefield 3 or COD.

TL;DR? Next-gen games better be memorable and not ****** rip offs for free money.
User avatar #177 to #176 - colegaleener (08/25/2012) [-]
Do you play games like GTA and Red dead Redemption? Red dead to me will always be remembered, the open wilderness, the drama, the adventure, it was all too great, GTA V will be great too, just look at how hard the people at rockstar north are working to make this brilliant game, and how easy it is for them to get people worked up with nothing but a few screenshots and a trailer. Assassin'screed is pretty sweet too.. I just hope they stop making them for a while, and focus on pure quality. to me, call of duty is a thing of the past. every year i keep saying that the next addition will be better, like modern warfare 2.. but it's just been **** lately.

What would you put into the next gen console?
User avatar #178 to #177 - heraske (08/25/2012) [-]
I've played Red Dead quite a bit actually, I enjoyed it. But still, I want to see higher quality games. I also want realistic graphics, but that's just me.
User avatar #179 to #178 - colegaleener (08/25/2012) [-]
Do you play forza?
User avatar #180 to #179 - heraske (08/25/2012) [-]
Never got into it. Not much into racing games IMO. I want a solid story line. Last game I played with a good story like was Halo Reach. I can't explain much, but games nowadays just lack replayability. Unlike games of the past. You play Zelda?
User avatar #116 to #84 - Schiffy (08/25/2012) [-]
Now that you mention it, I wish too.

To be honest, i've got nothing against Macs or apple products. If you got spare money to spend, then sure, why not. I will never buy an apple product though
the thing i hate is Apple as a company. they just suck. Suing every single possible competitor and forcing them to pay apple money, and yet they call it "for innovation"
my ******* ass for innovation. they're suing companies over rectangles with rounded edges.

This is just stupid and not funny. I know that PC are better for gaming and all, but Macs honestly aren't all that bad. I've used brand new macs and brans new PC's and they're internet is just about the same, speed-wise. I believe that Macs are more reliable for things like work, since they don't really get viruses, and obviously PC's are better for gaming.




inb4 i get thumbed down to oblivion for defending Macs
#106 to #54 - lostwoodskid (08/25/2012) [-]
Well the work thing is ******** .
Government agencies don't use Mac's as they are far too easy to hack
User avatar #117 to #54 - technosauce **User deleted account** (08/25/2012) [-]
they aren't bad they are over priced for the performance. Most people buy macs to say that they bought a mac.
User avatar #76 to #54 - heraske (08/25/2012) [-]
I can overclock my PC and add a liquid cooling or extra fans for cooling for the quickest response. I can also put different operation systems on my PC. Also, I don't have a bunch of unnamed icons that look like a big huge ass mess on the bottom of my screen. And my system specs are a lot higher for less. That and you can make a PCs smaller than a DVD case.
#90 to #76 - hurleyy (08/25/2012) [-]
I'm sorry i don't understand a word you are saying, I'm mentally challenged (gotta be politically correct) when it comes to computer. All i know it internet-wise, i don't really notice a difference between the two
User avatar #93 to #90 - heraske (08/25/2012) [-]
Then why the **** did you create a comment boasting that Mac is better than PC overall?
#98 to #93 - hurleyy (08/25/2012) [-]
I never said they were better, just not as bad as everyone says they are


also i am very lonely and i want to talk to people


missions success
User avatar #100 to #98 - heraske (08/25/2012) [-]
Well here's my advice. A mac is just a PC with ****** hardware with an expensive OS (Operating System) on it. Buy a PC, "hack" MACINTOSH OS X on to it. Not only will you have a better "Mac", you would have saved a ******* of money. But I pirate and never have I gotten a virus. You have to be cautious. The only reason people say windows are unreliable is because they are stupid and not cautious.

...And/Or download a **** ton of porn.
User avatar #103 to #101 - heraske (08/25/2012) [-]
Don't download porn, just stick with the free stuff. That's what I do and not a virus yet. Also, that's where Virus-scanners are useful for. Only reason why Apple is the most valued company in the world is due to human stupidity. I really don't want to know what the world will be like when I'm older.

Swaggots, swaggots everywhere.

Macs have a big impact on specific industry needs and special consumer needs.
Industry: Video/ Picture/ (maybe)Sound editing | Consumer: Simplicity, less possible chance of getting a virus

Windows computers, on the other hand, can do a lot more with flying colors. Granted that most people never use it to the full potential. (Plus Windows Computers can be upgraded; The most recent Mac Books have the RAM soldered to the case, making it impossible to upgrade it.)

Internet has absolutely NOTHING to do with it, unless you are comparing a Chrome book to a Mac/ PC.

Newer Processors, Graphic cards, RAM, hard drives/ solid state drives/ hybrid drives, ect. greatly improves Multitasking and 3D rendering, along with faster read/ write/ load times.
Hop on an old XP computer and try to open 4 programs and use them interchangeably. You'll notice how slow it is. Now, use a newer computer (anything, really) and do the same. Notice how rarely they fail to respond or slow down.
