Oh, and just because it's funny. (It's funny because it's true)

Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense. You're just not keeping up.

It's all good. Just chalk it up to great minds thinking alike. Wink

RE: Mac or PC? yes I am starting this classical debate
It all balances out when you compare the amount of money you'll spend on virus protection and subscriptions and repairs. I've had the same Macs for almost 20 years and never one problem, no viruses, nothing.

Look, someone has to stand up for Macs in this thread so I'll fall on the sword.

It all depends on what you want the computer for (go ahead and insert your sarcastic snarky comment here, I lobbed it up there for the common denominators. After all, they are so miserable using their Windoze I may as well give them something to make them happy.) Smile

Jeeze. You really pulled the virus card? How many times do I need to say it? With any OS; if you don't act like an idiot, nothing idiotic will happen to your computer.

I have never spent a dime on virus protection and fixing them is easy enough. Macs are just inferior. They cost more and do less and it's not like Macs can't get viruses just they are such a small market share that more people that write malicious software go for the 90% of the market rather than the 10% but when they do go after the 10% it can be carnage.

Rev just used the oldest anti-Mac argument ever, and it still works.

Macs are what you get when you combine the disadvantages of Microsoft with the disadvantages of Linux and then charge people a hefty premium for the experience to boot.

But, uh, to each their own, I guess.

... this is my signature!

It's the Epicurious Argument for Mac vs PC. The fundamental paradox no Mac owner can solve Laugh out load

Heard it all before, guys, and of course it's bullshit.

Pearl didn't mention wanting to have control over hardware and putting together her own computer, she asked for opinions. She obviously has Mac products and they are far simpler to use and are much more intuitive and user friendly. I've used both systems extensively and it's not even close.
