I'll give you simplicity of the interface though.

The faster speed is more from the OSX. A better PC will make up the difference, but that takes away the lower price

And if I'm there for an hour, and can't use a mouse, I just can't use the one on most Dells etc.

Everyone in my family has moved on to Apple products. I'm still on a PC, and have a Blackberry (jokes on me with the BB, what a **** phone).

I don't have a phone upgrade until a year from now, but if Verizon has some nice Windows phones by then I'll probably go that route to keep it uniform with my PC and sync all my devices. Otherwise I'll probably go with whatever the newest Samsung phone is, because that phone is beautiful.

I don't think I'm ever going to go for the iPhone/Mac, but wouldn't have a problem switching if let's say I had to for work or something

I'm not loyal or a "fanboy" for Windows, but it's where I've been all my life and it's easy for me. I've been working on a $350 Toshiba laptop for almost a year now, and it's been nothing but perfect for what I need it to do.

Linux isn't slow enough to make the PC significantly slower than a Mac.

I don't think Windows is that slow.

user friendly is the go-to term for apple users. you can't compare anything to an apple product without hearing how the apple product is more user friendly. how is a pc too complicated for people?

Oh **** this **** that. Just get a cheaper laptop.
I'm a whiny little ***** when it comes down to these things and I've learned to get cheaper laptops and switch often instead of commit to an expensive one and reluctantly "get your money's worth" over 3 long years of using what will become a slow and unfascinating laptop that will only fade in value exponentially. Get a new laptop once every year and sell the old one to someone who doesn't quite know laptop well enough to discern the difference of $40 - $50 on a laptop which can resell at around 60-65% of its price if it's in good condition and on a year old and you will end up being able to get around 65% of the money back and you end up having 3 new laptops, 1 a year for the price of 1 laptop for 3 years and since we're talking apple products here, you get to have 3 laptops (not as great as a macbook pro aesthetically and non-computer related experience wise) but you save up to $1,000 and you get way better experience with your computer because of 1) it's a PC and 2) it's newer and faster and equip to handle more.

The amount in which one can make back from a 1 year old laptop varies anywhere from 40% to 65% depending on the laptop itself, its state, the salesmanship and of course, the buyer and how receptive they are to a lucrative pitch from your perspective.

Rant over. Don't commit to 1 expensive laptop that's doesn't even have better specs and flexibility. It's like buying 3 meals worth of sushi on one night instead of getting a meal of a different type of cuisine on 3 different nights.

It's like that picture someone posted. User friendly? If you don't know how to use a PC, then maybe. if you do know how to use a PC which everyone should, then user friendly is only relative to the amount of stuff and the type of tasks a person uses the lappy for.

My last computer was a $200 netbook.

It will be my next purchase also. Great little workhorse.

Hey and some people still play DAoC. This was my first MMO, was really cool.
Man, was this a time!

Well, they made some bad things with wow (you're fully right) but there are some good things, too.
I have much fun despite not be able to go to big raids.
We'll see how this MMO ends (perhaps there will be finally a game which can win over world of warcraft )

So, I ordered a NYR neck warmer .. for next winter (SJS image below as there is no NYR one available:


Can't wait to get it (well, it's still warm here, so USPS has 2 months time to deliver it to Germany )

The only MMO I invested any time in was PSO when it was released for DC.

Only about 200 hours though.

Lot of fun.

Every PC I've owned has crashed within a few months, even with the best virus protection. My new Macbook has lasted me about 6 months so far with no issues, so that's pretty much all I need to see to convert to Apple products.

Why did it crash?

And also what annoys me is when people in general use the word PC. A Mac is a PC as well.

Ridley Scott made sure a lot of the movie was left unexplained and "out there", including what David says to the Architect at the end that makes him flip out and kill everyone. My problems with the film were "why even hire Guy Pierce to play an old man with a terrible make-up job when hiring an actual old man would have sufficed." haha and again, the women running in a straight line..that got me. A lot of it had to do with character development which i can agree was done poorly, but was almost shielded by the fact that this was a new installment of Alien, which i agree was one of the best movies of all time and I'm not a huge sci-fi kinda guy.

A lot was supposed to be left unexplained which people a lot of people off but the next movie will be even more epic than ever. I loved the classic Ridley Scott cinematography and not using 100% CGI but staying true to animatronics and stuff like that is always a plus and i think a lot more movies are getting really good at merging the two beautifully. I think he does an excellent job of throwing us back into the mix and keeping us guessing all the way until the end of the film. We can at least agree that the development of the Alien was pretty cool? (from weapon, to human, to woman's womb, to Architect and then finally...boom). It was awesome, just wish there was more of the Alien and less idiotic biologist?
I will agree with you on one point:

The movie was absolutely gorgeous. Amazingly shot.

My main complaints from my last post can be summed up by one thing: The utter ****tyness of the script.

No amount of effects, no matter how amazing, can replace a well written, intelligent, and believable script. And actors can only work with what they have been given. Everyone in Prometheus was behind the eight ball from the start.

At least I can always watch Alien/Aliens.

666 Burger ***** all over Shake Shack and would murder Shake Shacks children. If burger stands could have children.

They also get their meat from a sustainable farm in upstate NY.

True, but at least agree with me that the Alien at the end was badass. haha I feel like Carl from Family Guy.."Please agree with me that it was AWESOME!" but yeah the the movie was beautiful and you can't expect anything less than that from Ridley. You know, a lot of the unexplained themes were just Mr. Scott trying keep us guessing, there was a lot of hidden **** like the Christmas theme throughout, and the Cross necklace, how the Engineers created us and humanities faith in God as a result. Also, they were trying to destroy us because Jesus was an engineer and we crucified him, bla bla so basically we're a violent race and they needed to destroy us and start over. I think he was trying to put more of the "history of man" into the movie instead of the "history of Alien" I don't know, Im certainly not arguing with you, I see every point you made, and i agree there was a lot of **** left unexplained, but there are little things which really popped out at me.
