See that's what I don't get about the Mac crowd (not all of them I know) but why would you buy a Mac and use Windows?

So you can't fit in with your friends while not totally being screwed?

If it makes you feel better it's good at facebook apparently. At least I'm assuming it is considering that's what most Mac owners use it for.

Not sure if that's a well assumption because I'm sure the Macs can perform good on other things.

Macs can do everything that everything else can except upgrade properly or perform good.

But yea, pay twice as much for half the technology that you can't change and then proceed to run the software of the cheaper, better thing.


Getting boring now (as well as inaccurate).

I'm mainly a Mac guy. In my unbiased opinion (at least as close to unbiased as I can get), I prefer Mac laptops over PC laptops, but also prefer PC desktops over Mac desktops.

I don't hate them at all, I just think looking at what you get, it's a poor value.

I honestly got the machine because an Apple laptop simply blows any other laptop in terms of how long it just simply lasts for.

These things won't break on you or fail on you unless you literally drop the thing and even when you do they'll take a small drop and still work when other laptops will just completely **** out. I don't game or do anything else so yeah I bought it to Facebook and all that and also not invest in buying another laptop 2 years down the line.

I know you have some laptop you've been taking care for years and years but I can place a winning bet that the Mac laptop can top however many years you've had that old laptop for.

You are mostly paying for the platform of apple not the hardware. And since this is a gaming forum, most of the users here are gamers and will need much better graphic power for their games which Mac products lack. imo is where the hate is coming from.

But the platform is useful for people who work with graphics and develop software.
