    Thankfully most of my friends like macs. One of them wants to get one, simply so he can use the internet without getting viruses and play games under bootcame. I've had a couple friends come over just to play with my Mac.. lol. A couple people at work have Macs too.

    I just hate it when that one person in class overhears our conversation about computers. Macs SUCK! They don't have any good programs! Photoshop? DreamWeaver? Aperature? Flash? Even your favorite, Limewire and BitTorrent... Uhh... Games! I bet theres no good games! You like WoW? Yea. Sims 2? Yea. Halo? Yea. Unreal Tournament 04? yea. Quake? Yea. There you go. Anything else, thats why they run windows too. The bundled applications are also way better.

    Long Pause...

    I find it hard to justify why Macs suck now adays.

    Can't forget about my Math Teacher. I brought my iBook in so I could do my project on it so I can work on it at home. He was like "You ACTUALLY like those Apples?" Yea. "Those suck. You can't do anything good with them, like games." Theres plenty, and if they suck then why do many professional video editors, photographers, music artists, and so on use them? " Umm, well I haven't found anything good." You can still look at porn, your favorite hobby! He just walked away quickly. That guy ticked me off all year...

    People are still stuck on the price too. There is some type of misconception. They think that the mac platform is far more expensive than a PC. In some instances it can be. But if you're building a machine that has the same specs it's going to end up costing you more in the long run. People just dont seem to get it.

    Not to mention that with a PC, you'll have to purchase Norton or something similar, but the need for something like that on a Mac is dramatically diminished.

    My line is I have personally built and repaired more PCs than most people will touch in their entire lives.

    I know all about PCs. Thats why I got a Mac.

    I don't know why but whenever I see a PowerPoint presentation at my school, it makes me a little ticked.

    I look around me at all the kids watching this thing, and think "This is probably all they ever have and ever will know. Just Microsoft products."

    Sorry, got a little deep there for a second. Just musing, I guess.

    Friend: Cool! You have a Mac!
    Me: yep.
    Friend: Why does it sound like a f**kin airplane taking off?
    Me: That's just the sound of raw power my friend. Like the engine revvin in a muscle car.

    Honestly though, I tell people straight up, "Anybody who tells you Windows PC's are better than Macs and vice versa is just full of it.
    I think both are equally annoying. Both machines have their strengths and weaknesses."

    Growing up a good friend of mine Dave was a huge PC/Windows guy. Me on the other hand, obviously a Mac user. Back in the day when Windows 95 was released, he was one of those that waited in line that morning for his copy.
    At that time I was using my All-in-one Performa with the latest System 7.5 on it. Dave called when he got home and put Win95 on his computer, our conversation went something like this.

    "This is so cool. There is a recycle bin on the desktop" Dave
    "Dave, I have had the trash can for a long time"
    "ooo" Dave

    "Well, you can make short-cuts to your icon and put them anywhere" Dave
    "I been able to do that for a long-time"
    "ooo" Dave

    "You can run more than one program at a time on this" Dave
    "I been able to do that for awhile"
    "ooo"

    Today we are both 36 years old. Since Win95, Dave has lost his enthusiasm which each release of Windows. When XP came out, he was disappointment, as a loyal PC guy he stayed with it. Recently, he got Vista and installed it on his gateway. Except this time he instant message me, and started with his Vista story. He hates it and rolled back to XP.
    Over the years I have converted many people over to the Mac. Dave has been on stubborn person in this regard. Now, he has seen Vista and the lack of advancement, beyond the eye-candy. He called me to tell me he was ready for the Mac. I almost fell-over when he told me he is going to buy a iMac.
    Now he has had the iMac for little over a month, I can't shut him on about how much better OSX is than XP and Vista.:mac:

    I took my PowerBook in to college last week because I had some computing coursework that needed to be done and I had a couple of free periods to type it up.

    I was sitting in the common room and some guy said "woah cool you got an iMac!"

    His mate then corrected him and said "That's not an iMac, it's an iBook because its a laptop"

    Then some other guy sitting nearby said "It's actually a MacBook because they've changed the names now"

    I laughed a bit and corrected them, saying it was a PowerBook. The original guy paused for a bit and said "but you're not running windows, you're running Apple"

    Made me laugh!
