In honor of the Mac V. PC Debate

Please take with a grain of salt


Ever notice how most Mac users are skinny? It's because of all the calories they burn because they can't shut the f### up about how great their Macs are. What is it about Apple that makes its users unable to shut their mouths? Everywhere I go, there's another a##hole with a Mac preaching about how much better Macs are than PCs. They regurgitate lines directly from Apple's marketing campaign, like "it just works." I have the following rebuttals to this argument:

Re: In honor of the Mac V. PC Debate

hahah to funny.. Im a mac user myself and im no where from skinny 6' 6" 320lbs. I decided on mac more from experience on them, not cause there cool, or cause this and that. No computer is perfect if Maddox wants to post one site for fixing macs there is literally a 100,000 for windows. This was obviously written from a PC stand point. Not everyone is in a band, or is a artist thats just a stupid stereotype by an uneducated person.

Next the ads, ok Mac ads are corny ill admit it but didnt microsoft just sign Lebron James as a spokesperson WTF does he have to do with computers. Whats that your saying? right nothing..

There is no right or wrong, Its what works for you..

There is tons of little LEET people who run around and talk gibberish on how the did this or that with there windows machines as well. Again this is so obviously written by a PC user.

At work we have a 64 bit PC machine and ran windows update, what did it do you ask? thats right it went right to the blue screen of death Thanks Microsoft that was one hell of a update LOL..

Again each have there own uses, each have there own clientel, and each will defend there machines.

I'm skinny, but I don't own a Mac. I don't want one either.

Maddox site is way cool. I always used to go there but then I forgot about it.

Yeah, Man. You have to be cool to use Mac stuff. It's like, totally the same as a fat chick wearing a hollister shirt or an old guy with DC shoes.

Re: In honor of the Mac V. PC Debate

Mac owners are skinny because they are all healthy, balanced Vegans who can find the time to get out and throw sticks in the park with their dog, n' stuff like that......

...... and why is this the case? It's because Mac owners don't have to spend 60% of their lives in an ergonomically incorrect chair, surviving on pre-packaged foodstuffs from the Frito Lay Corporation, staring at 1280 by 1024 pixels which have been telling them for the last 48 hours (and twenty five crashes, and fifteen restarts) that Windows XP doesn't recognise their Audio card drivers software for no apparent reason........

I guess I might be the exception to Elcid's rule, because I am a Mac owner who is becoming depressingly, um, corpulent as time goes by. Maybe it's all those great Frito Lays products......

Re: In honor of the Mac V. PC Debate

I never understood why so many people have problems with their PC's. I built my own 2 years ago after doing a little reading up and this thing is flawless, all except for one bad RAM stick which I just got replaced. That caused a few crashes, but since I isolated the problem it's flawless again, it's ridiculously reliable. The problem came about from excessive overclocking, btw, so that's OK, it was my own fault anyway.

+1. I have a similar experience with DIY computers. They are great computers. You can get the spare parts just about anywhere and the prices for the spare parts are so much cheaper than other branded names like Dell, HP, Mac,Compaq, Gateway, etc. Apart from that, DIY spare parts last much longer. Using a Kingston RAM can last you a really long time.

Re: In honor of the Mac V. PC Debate

I think Fritos became so huge as a corporation that you could get them on Mars. There's a fantastic book on the leveraged buyout of Frito Lay (I think it's called Barbarians at the Gates) which is the most amazing account of corporate greed I have ever read. I agree with Dee et al, that you CAN cobble together a fantastic DIY PC, but you can cobble together a fantastic AC Cobra replica too (or a JEM for that matter) , it's just that 99.99% of us either dont't have the skills or inclination to do so - we just want something that works straight out of the box - and that, ultimately is the real reason I have stuck with Macs - corny as the ads are, it's true, they just work!

Our native beasties are a bit tough Jim - here's an old bushies recipe for cooking a Sulphur Crested ****atoo:

Bring several gallons of water to a slow boil, find two large rocks - drop them gently into the water, pluck your ****atoo, place it in the boiling water with the rocks - let simmer for at least 24 hours.

Remove heat, throw away the ****atoo and eat the rocks.
