Mac or PC, just wondering?

Mac users let me ask you this: I have 3 PCs 1 has lasted me 5 years and only crashed once in those 5 years, which was entirely my fault for messing around with my system 32 folder. The other is 2 years old hasn't crashed once and the only thing I've had to do on it is get a new monitor because the old one wasn't good enough for me. The third has lasted 8 years and has never crashed, still runs windows XP on a Pentium 4, real old school. As far as viruses out of all these computers I've only gotten a virus on the first one and that was only once my antivirus deleted it and that's that, so yeah viruses aren't as bad as they are made out to be, sure they can destroy your computer but as long as you don't do dumb stuff like go to websites with a bad reputation on click on all the ads on a website you'll be fine. How many Macbooks offer a 2GB ATI Radeon HD 6770m or something equal to that? None! How many Macbooks offer an Intel Core i7 2630qm for under $1000? None! How many Macbooks offer a 7200 RPM hard drive for a decent price? Few! (GPU=Video Card, HDD = Hard Drive) Look here: http://store.apple.com/us/configure/MC721LL/A?select=select&product=MC721LL%2FA&mco=MjEyOTY5MDM#service_and_support A 15 inch Macbook with standard parts: -CPU: Intel Core i7 2630QM -GPU: Intel HD 3000 -HDD: 500 GB @ 5400RPM -RAM: 4GB -Optical Drive: DVD Burner -Warranty: Not Mentioned -Screen: 15 in standard screen. This costs $1800 Now look at what I can get off HP.com for the same $1800 http://www.shopping.hp.com/series/category/notebooks/dv6tqe_series/3/computer_store?jumpid=in_r329_personalization/browse1/home_SDP I customized this 15 inch HP DV6T Quad with: -CPU: Intel Core i7 2820QM, far superior to the Mac CPU. -GPU: 2GB Radeon 6770M, far superior the the Mac GPU. -HDD: 750GB @ 7200 RPM, superior to the Mac HDD. -RAM: 8GB of RAM, twice as much as the Mac. -Warranty: 2 Year HP warranty. Apple didn't even mention a warranty. -Battery Life: 2 Batteries one with 5.5 Hours and another with 9 Hours. Apple didn't even offer me an extra battery. -Optical Drive: Blu-Ray player and DVD burner, Apple only has a DVD burner. -Screen: 15 inch True HD 1080P Anti Glare screen. So again why should someone buy an Apple laptop? @Emily can you explain what you mean by Apple stands behind their product?

Well because Apple is just a better product. And Apple stands behind its product which is more than i can say for Microsoft. That's why Macs are so darn expensive. So it's a Mac for me...:)

Emily doesn't know what she is talking about. Macs are not "better." They are more appealing, they are nice and shiny. If you care about function, customization, and quality PC is the way to go. You get what you pay for with a PC. You can spend $300 or $10000, Mac only gives u a few options and they suck. Over priced... More
