This reminds me of a post I saw a long time ago and have since lost track of

OP was talking about the ridiculous pricing for bits and **** on macbooks in the parts customization options, at first I was going to skip because it seemed like the usual Apple bashing everyone has already heard a thousand times but then one thing caught my eye

The price to upgrade it with a 2GB RAM, this was probably back in 2011 mind you, was $300.

Why did this catch my interest you ask? This ****** old toshiba satellite model I'm using right now was the version with one of the cheapest setups at the time and it came with a 2GB RAM. The entire thing was about $250.

TL;DR Apparently back in the day Apple thought their 2gig RAM was worth more than my whole computer which has the same RAM power.

I used MACs back in the Macromedia days. But those days are over, they got bought up by apple's bumm buddy Adobe.
User avatar #4 to #2 - naitsabesh ONLINE (07/23/2013) [-]
I'm guessing it's something with the amount of programs and stuff you need on it. If you get a laptop it rarely has more than, what, 240 gb or something?
Might also be something with that the teachers are used to macs.
User avatar #40 to #4 - citruslord (07/23/2013) [-]
They have the same policy at my school, which I was able to get by because it was just enacted. I've asked teachers why a PC with the same or better hardware wont suffice. The question obviously catches them off guard, and the only answers I've gotten are things like "It's the industry standard" and "there could be compatibility issues with files" (both are ******** ). It really comes down to them being fanboys, and I think they get some sort of compensation from apple for each mac sold, considering the program has it's own "store".
User avatar #32 to #4 - craxxet (07/23/2013) [-]
It's the same thing on the school i just finished and the one I'm starting in about a month from now.

I think the point is that the macbooks come preloaded with all kinds of **** software (99% which you don't want, I mean photobooth, good for attention-whoring sluts but not for anyone else) and that the macs are "uncompromisable" so that the school's network won't be "hacked".

User avatar #3 to #1 - OddballAnon (07/23/2013) [-]
a Mac is mandatory? why?
#73 to #3 - ljetibo (07/23/2013) [-]
i.e. in graphic schools in croatia Mac's are not mandatory but are desirable because all the post-processing (movie making, image processing, newspaper processing and a ton of other **** ) is done on Mac's
and then if you don't have one you'll always have a really hard time adjusting to the new layout of the program, or in some cases won't even be able to work in the same one
I'm not from graphic design background, but in my case as a physics major it's the same thing as not having a working Linux copy. I run it on VirtualBox, others opted for dual boot, but in any case at least Linux is free and open source unlike Mac's
User avatar #142 to #1 - PrincessTwilight (07/23/2013) [-]
During high school, all students were loaned macbooks to use during the year.

Except the school managed the impossible. They made macs worse. Whitelisted applications, extremely restrictive internet, could not enable bluetooth or disable wifi. You couldn't even change the background. Not only that, but there was a frequent virus scanner that used up all of you 2gb memory, ensuring that at least one day a week, your mac could do nothing at all.

"it doesn't get PC viruses" is 100% true, when you make a virus you make it for a specific operating system, so mac doesn't get PC viruses, it gets mac viruses.
User avatar #282 to #56 - adu (07/23/2013) [-]
It does get PC viruses, it just gets OSX viruses as opposed to more common Windows viruses.
#63 to #56 - anon (07/23/2013) [-]
But there is no single virus for Mac as of now that can install itself on the system without the user contributing to it.

So the difference is: On Windows, anyone can get a virus who does not use an Antivirus software. On the Mac, only really really stupid users get virusses.

"It doesn't get PC viruses" is 100% false. A PC is a personal computer, which is pretty much just the hardware. The OS is what gets the viruses.

Apple products have one great advantage, though - the software that is made for them is optimized to run on Apple hardware. That means it runs smoothly, with no random errors and uses computing power efficiently and intelligently. That does not change the fact that they are complete douches. Don't get me wrong, I do not support their marketing and production policies.

tl;dr
pros of Apple products; not applefag

I do like the iPad, I'm using on it now. I had alot of issues with Samsung phones so I was Leary about the tab. Seems there may be some better tablets out there now, but im fine with mine, runs smoothly. Pricing was ****** though. The one thing is I'm using it more than my computer, but that's more my laptop being old,and ****** to begin with. Il give them macs are okay products, but all these things prove it's just the way they act is horrible

I have owned numerous apple products, and although im not a fanboy, i like them. I've had android phones (HTC thunderbolt, Motorola Droid X2) but those kept ******* up. The power button stopped working on both, and had to do two digitizer replacements on the thunderbolt. I did like the android os, but i decided to switch to the iphone 4 (friend sold it to me for $50) Its over two years old, but it works fine, i did replace the front screen because it was cracked, but it has worked great ever since. I now have the iphone 5, and although things like the gs4 or note 2 seemed cool, i stuck with the simpler ios device

I also have both a windows 7 HP dm4 and a macbook pro r13. The macbook book was ony (I know its still alot) 1300, not the 2200 that this shows starting. I do not run any antiviris on it, and it works fine (7 months) with the retina model, ssd is standard, which was one reason pushing me towards it as my dm4 has had two hdd failures in the pass year. not only that, but the two devices work great in tandem. with my new iphone, i simply plugged it into itunes, and restored from my old iphone, and within 5 minutes i had all my contacts, pictures, music, apps, and even all of my old text messages copied over.
I do prefer windows over mac os, but apple products are simple, and that why i like them for basic day to day use. I youse my dm4 for all of my engineering work, but i use my mac for photoshop and video editing, and it works leaps and bounds better than the windows pc.

TLDR apple os simple with some advantages, windows/android are more complex to use, but are the best at what they do

I can't argue with their laptops. Their laptops are actually amazing. I've been a PC fanboy for years now, and im finally shelling out and buying a rMBP 15 inch.

What other laptop has that high of a res?
The answer is none. They also sell one of the cheapest 2560x1600 displays out there. Almost two times as cheap as the NEC 2560x1600 monitors I have at work

For photoshop and video editing, is a Mac better than PC?

I enjoy the Android operating system too, but one thing I notice about it is that it is so damn unstable. My Nexus 7, which is a pretty damn good tablet mind you, experiences crashes a couple times each month, and it runs the latest and greatest Android 4.2.2. My previous phone, a Motorola Droid 3 (			****		 that thing) was far worse, as well as severely inefficient. I decided to go for an iPhone 5 when upgrade time rolled around and I love the hell out of it. Another thing I'd like to point out is that while Apple doesn't use the absolute  best available hardware out  there in their products, they design their hardware and software around each other very well, leading to efficient products that are very stable as well. But y'know, 			****		 me for liking anything Apple makes

Ehhhhh.
I use a PC since their OS is terribad and my phone is running android, because freedom and all that. I would never buy a laptop or phone from Apple.
THOUGH I have a iPod touch, because I think they are pretty neat for music (music player and all that). Sure, iTunes sucks ass, but once you get used to it, it's not that bad.
So yeah....I think Apple makes good MP3 players. But thats it.
But I had to buy a ******* 20€ adapter so I can use my iPod on my old docking station that was robbery :/
User avatar #246 to #241 - omgitzdeadpool (07/23/2013) [-]
Yeah I have the touch, but that **** is collecting dust since the music software (Google Play with Cloud Storage) is much more user friendly and you don't have to get around ******** to download on your Iphone/Ipod.

I tried Google Play with Cloud on my Note II...
I dunno. iTunes organizes it better....it looks so clean and stuff on it. If that makes sense.
And I like this new intelligent shuffle thing

User avatar #259 to #250 - omgitzdeadpool (07/23/2013) [-]
Yeah, I don't know if you tried Play recently, but they updated it and looks a bit cleaner than before (Albums, Songs, Artist, The usual selections), also the music that I had on my iTunes transferred over with only one click. Not all album covers can be stored on there, but I bet like many who illegally download music and put it on iTunes should know how easy it is to fix that. The one thing I love about iTunes is when you put it on landscape and see all the album covers. That is always sick.
User avatar #263 to #259 - lieutenantpansy (07/23/2013) [-]
I saw it yeah
But uninstalled the updates, because the application always opened itself and soaked up ram.
I only have the discographys of my fav artists from Piratebay. They even sometimes come with cover nowadays.
And yeah that looks cool.
I never really use it tho

iPhones are quite the thing. I personally dont like them and there are a lot of snobbish iPhone elitists, but some people just like the design and interface. My gf knows about the issues and whatnot, but she says she just likes the design and stuff

The classic ipod is great, I got an ipod touch for free and the headphone jack completely stopped working after only a couple months of use. I brought it in to be fixed and they said it was my fault cuz I probably wrapped the headphones around it like an idiot (which I did not do) as if they they give a **** what I did or not :/
User avatar #298 to #295 - lieutenantpansy (07/23/2013) [-]
My old one was pretty reliable. Can't make a statement about my current one yet

I somehow doubt that wrapping around a thin wire around a solid device is damaging it
#303 to #298 - dolphinwing (07/23/2013) [-]
yeah but that's why they refused to fix it.. I had my old ipod for about 5 years and it still worked just fine but I got a new one for xmas 2 years ago which still works great so no complaints there.

-I have had a more fluent experience with my iPod 3rd generation than I have with most Androids, the OS never failed me.
-Macs are expensive, yes, but they're also very useful in certain fields of work. You're typically paying for the expensive materials.
-All OSs have their features and uses. Windows is good for a bot of everything, OSX is good for video/audio, and Linux is good for coding/3D modeling.

I use Windows and have an Android phone, but I'd rather use Linux over Windows since it seems to always be more efficient, only thing stopping me is the fact that you can't really do much gaming on Linux, and Wine doesn't entirely cut it for me. I'd rather use an iPhone over an Andoid for all the good apps and the fact that iOS was designed to run apps and do basic functions, I don't want a bunch of widgets on my homescreen. (Yes, I know Android uses the Linux kernel)

Well if you have a damn good PC you can always dual boot.
Install Linux Mint or if you are really new to Linux use Ubuntu.
Linux will ask you what do you want and you answer it you want to instal it alongside windows. Now you have both. Downside is you have to reboot each time you switch OS.
Alternative would be to only have Linux and use Virtualbox to emulate windows.
Even if you get a virus it can't do **** outside the Virtualbox.

I run Zorin from a Flash drive since I use alot of my disk space and just like to play around with it, I know it's a newbie distro, but it does pretty well, I tested Minecraft on it, on Windows, I get like 30 FPS, on Zorin I get 60 FPS, but no matter what setting I put it on, it lock MC to 60 FPS, tried turing off v-sync. My current issue is just figuring out how .gz files work. I do have Zorin running on an old desktop, it runs better than Vista did in some areas, but the chipset in the desktop is a huge hold-back. It can't even run Half-Life 1 and has issues with 720p video, it had this even when it was running on Vista. I tried Mint, it doesn't seem to run well on the old desktop.

I've heard the idea of macs being better for video/audio work before, but I don't see how. What gives it such an advantage? I've used both for art/animation and I personally feel that OSX is essentially the same as windows, with a few things moved around and some features removed. When it comes to price, that pisses me off. There's NO way that aluminum case is worth $1000. And don't tell me the hardware is better, it's made in the same factory as anything in a PC.
As for Linux, it is much more efficient. And the one thing that did always impress me from apple was their handheld devices.

From my experience, Mac handle 3ds Max and Sketchbook better than Windows. Like when adding multiple modifiers, converting NURBS or when welding some vertex/edges, Windows often crashes in part where Mac doesn't. Also, I never experienced any 3ds Max crash on Mac.

Sketchbook on Mac won't crash easily too. Selecting many vectors in Windows version crash so often and on Mac it only crash 2 times because out of memory.
User avatar #253 to #59 - citruslord (07/23/2013) [-]
That sounds more like a hardware problem than anything. I'd guess its possible, but with enough ram it wouldn't matter really. Also, any real differences between the two will most likely be erased in the next 10 or so years, they're been growing closer and closer in performance.
User avatar #283 to #253 - envinite (07/23/2013) [-]
Definitely not a hardware problems, I use the Asus N43SL with upgraded RAM to 12GB, that should be enough for designing, even for moderate rendering. Compared to that Mac with 4GB of rams, it's **** for Autodesk programs.

I think it's more like marketing strategy. Developers bad tweaking the windows version so designers and musician would buy Macs (since we can assume designers and musician have ******* of income). Well I dunno, but it's possible. Hell, there's even rumor about Nvidia bad tweaking games so people would buy their latest hardwares.
User avatar #264 to #253 - ratchetmiles (07/23/2013) [-]
Well, he could be right a bit, I have tried Minecraft on Windows, it runs like **** , mostly at 30 FPS on short render distance. I use 64 bit Windows, 6 GB of RAM, Intel HD 3000 (I know this is the issue, but hold on), and i5 2.3 ghz.

I ran Zorin OS from my flash drive, 32 bit because I previously installed it on an old desktop, I get like 60 FPS at max settings, but it locks at 60, even when I turn of Vsync. This **** runs from a flash drive. So, some OSs can be more efficient than others.

As a person who works in that industry I can promise you without a shadow of a doubt that Linux is in no way shape or form better for 3D modeling, I am both a 3D artist as well as a professional animator and something about saying Linux is better for that **** erkd me, you will never at any point in time find any professional studio using Linux for modeling, which they would in fact do if it picked up the speed in anyway.
