Why are Mac's considered as bad computers?
User avatar #144 to #73 - pwnfrnzy (04/20/2013) [-]
Mac vs. Windows may come to a screeching halt since Microsoft shot themselves in the foot with Windows 8 and are now looking down the barrel of the same loaded gun with a finger on the trigger.
And the "Windows Blue" ain't gonna fix the mess at all.
So I believe it will be Mac vs. Linux as Microsoft seems to have a hard-on for touch-based operating platforms and people migrate to Linux (what I'll be doing when Windows 7 support ends).

They are all terrible, but have some things which make them better, the problems with windows 8 have mostly been around since xp, mac is made by apple so the normal arguments are there, and linux isn't that good for games, and if someone made a really user friendly ubuntu without needing that damn terminal that could play games like windows, everyone would use it.
I want microsoft to go completely bust and sell windows to someone else, like sony who will make a company merged with several others like toshiba (and some other japanese technology companies with high reputation) and make a new os, based off windows, but completely changed so it doesn't have all the ****** problems, but keeping all the good stuff.

I'm kinda new to computers so I barely understood a word of that.

No problem man, not everyone is as strongly into computers as others.

It's not the computers that are considered bad (except for their major overpricing) so much as it is the company and its fanbase that's bad.

A lot of it is people jumping on the bandwagon, they hate anything Apple because the internet tells them to.

I use a MacBook for uni and general browsing etc and honestly I prefer it to any windows based laptop I've used. The multi-gesture trackpad is really useful, the screen is better than any windows running laptops (I honestly can't believe laptops are still manufactured with 1366x768 displays) and the battery life is pretty good.

I use a Custom built PC running windows as my main PC, play a lot of games which just isn't good on a laptop.

Macs also have very high resell value, I could put this up on ebay for as much as I paid for it (I got £500 off a refurbished machine).

If you don't like Apple that's fine but being on the hate wagon is simply embarrassing, come on people you're better than that. Apple haters are worse than the sub-human Xbox vs PS3 retards.

(also inb4 "hurr you could have brought a windows laptop for less money", I wanted to try something new, and have lots of money.)

Thank you for the info. if you don't mind me asking is there any way to play Windows games on a Mac?
User avatar #123 to #117 - joshlol (04/20/2013) [-]
You can run Windows in a virtual environment on mac so you could just do it through that. Not sure if that would affect the in-game performance though.

****** OS, made to break, made to not be repaired or serviced therefore you have to buy a new one, very expensive for no reason whatsoever.

Where did you get those ridiculous ideas?
Macbooks last for years. Have had my macbook for 5 years, way longer than any computer ive ever had, and it still runs smooth.

You can replace many parts by yourself, and apple even has guides for doing so.
They are more expensive than your regular laptop because they spend a ******** of time on the design of the laptop.
Some people may not give a crap about computer design, like some people dont give a crap about car design.
But some people do.

I'm relatively new to computers so I don't know what OS means.

EDIT: had one detail wrong.

It means Operating System. For example Windows is an operating system, same with the Mac's OS X.

And a heads up on Apple's website, the cheapest Macbook is $1200 US.

Operating System -> OS
Windows is an OS for example

I find them difficult to handle. I'm more used to PCs, and even though I'm not great with computers it's easier for me to figure out what I don't know how to do on a PC than on a Mac since the layout is easier for me to understand.

I don't hate on Macs, but I just don't like them.

I grew up with PC's and got a mac and I didn't have that much trouble.
