Enjoy your Pontiac.

My BMWs, three of them, never let me down.

They just work.

And I've owned more than a few Pontiacs.

Car references only works if it makes sense.

With a BMW, you get German engineering and high performance for a good price. With a Mac, you get the same car except with sparkles and rhinestones plastered all over it which triples the price.

Only high school teenieboppers and trendy know-it-all college students use Macs. Sorry if the commercials told you differently.

I love the company slogan you threw in there too. "It just works." It should be "It just browses the Internet"

I've never had a PC break down on me once. I build my own and know how to maintain them. I've had issues with my mac's hardware twice. I will give them one thing; they have great customer support.

Plus you can play way more games on a PC than you can on a mac.

Oh, and Windows 7 blows the doors off of any mac OS to this point.

Graphics, video, music production.

All the high end programs are built for Mac.

And Windows 7 Bloat is way behind Snow Leopard.

I haven't tried windows 7 but I disagree with that you said about Mac's. I love them. I'd choose a mac over a pc any day of the week.

Snow Leopard. The service pack that Apple charged its customers. Mac users love the marketing. I need to hire these guys. No way could any sane person actually pay for a patch, but yet I witness it everyday. I bet you think it's an upgrade too, don't you?

Every high end program is available for the PC (And it most cases, runs in 64 bit) and runs a lot better. The best you can hope for in your $2000 iMac is 4gb ram.

But you really don't do any of that stuff anyway. All you do is log in, surf the net and check your email.

Ok...

Graphics... I'm pretty sure I can run my Adobe CS Master Suite faster on my PC than any mac, you know, because I PC's have faster processors.

Music... once again I could use Adobe Audition and get the exact same results with better performance. Check the stats, a properly built PC will blow the doors off of any mac, any day.

Video... I guess I could once again load up Adobe Premiere, or After Effects and do the exact same things. Final Cut Pro isn't used as much as you'd like to believe. I know several prominent editors that use Premiere/After Effects and think it's vastly superior to Final Cut Pro.

High end programs are actually made for both. Nice try though.

How in the hell would you know if you don't own a PC and can't run them side by side? I can. Microsoft got it right this time and Windows 7 is far better than the joke that I found Snow Leopard to be.

Nice attempt at telling me I can't do the same things on a PC. Epic Fail on your part considering I can do the exact same things, only better, faster and with a more enjoyable experience. Plus I can play games on a PC while you're busy staring at a spinning color wheel that diverts your attention away from your mac crashing.

I barely use it and it's had hardware issues twice. Issues I can't fix because I'm not a mac tech. You don't need to be a tech to build your own computer and fix any issues on your own with some research. The same can't be said for a mac. I use my PC all the time and I never have issues.

Back to my game that can't be played on a mac... trallallallaaa...

oh, please please please .... Mod's please lock this thread.

Why does there have to be one of these threads every year. There will always be fans of one or the other, and trust me ... I have mine, but its totally pointless to argue it. Like someone on here is going to go "Oh, I see your point, well ... I think I'll throw my system out and get a new system" ....

I've had both. Prefer PC. Built it myself. 8 Gigs of Ram in that baby lol. I know how to maintain it as well. Never have problems.

Windows 7 runs flawless for me. Love it.

Everyone has an opinion. No need to fight over it.

The vast majority of computer users never use their computers for video/music production.

I've used my girlfriend's Mac on many occasions and I find it frustrating. For my purposes (and that of most people) a PC is easier to use, since almost every computer people use at say, work is a PC. Why try to learn a Mac? Why pay more for a Mac and get less in the long run?

EDIT: Having said all that, I know a few people who swear by Macs, so there must be something to them.

That's exactly what I said earlier. Some one who knows their way around a computer can use a PC no problem. But for the average home computer user with kids, the PC life is a short and frustrating one. In my family, we probably went through 7 or 8 PC's, some of them were the cheap kind, but towards the end, I would make sure I paid a bit extra and got a reputable brand with good reviews. It was still a piece of crap because we didn't know how to properly maintain it. I bought a Mac over four years ago and gave it to my brother last year, til this day, Til this day, it still works perfectly fine. I upgraded to a newer Mac last Boxing Day and surprise surprise, no problems.

My siblings haven't caught on yet, my brother and sister both recently bought new PC's and are already kicking themselves.

Mac's are great computers for the average person.

i swear there is some kind of law that states if someone makes a post about a computer issue on an internet message board it takes an average of X number of posts before it turns into a mac versus pc debate.

every time.
