Do people on this board hate Macs even though...

Macs do have good build quality and they do feel premium but its too expensive and generally not good for games.

Counter-Strike is the only good multiplayer game because it isnt bs like most other online games. BF is cool too

No one hates on Mac. We just point out the fact that it is overpriced and you determine it to be hate, rage or anything your malevolent mind can think of.

I own a gaming PC and two Macbooks. I think it's silly to have an allegiance to any one product.

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

I prefer Mac laptops over PC laptops, but also prefer PC desktops over Mac desktops.

This is the only right answer. Apple laptops > Most Windows laptops. Custom PCs >>>>>>>>>>>>> iMac/Mac Pro.

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.

My Gateway Solo 9300 lasted 9 or 10 years. I'd really like to see you top that.

Wanna bet my Mac can last longer than that? I've had my laptop for 5 years now and I can guarantee I put it through more hell than you did with your laptop

Unless you have some bit of software that absolutely requires OSX (such as Logic), then I tend to recommend a Windows based laptop that can fulfill the needs of a user at the lowest cost possible to them

I'm on my 4 year old Macbook and it's still as stable as the day I opened it. Never scanned for viruses and spyware and never reformatted. It just works.
