Bloated software... overpriced hardware.

But far better than PC. I just scrapped my desktop and laptop and replaced them with Apple products. Far superior.

Got about 150 apple trees, does this count?

blindrabbit 3 years, 7 months ago

The legend is incorrect; more likely an apricot, pomegranate or fig; apples didn't exist then in the Holy Land! The results the same though!

Hardware may be overpriced, however the software is stable! Microsoft sucks! Brings new meaning to, "I don't do Windows" Windows 7 = Mac OS 7!

Brb buying an iPhone, MacBook, and iPad for twice the price I should be paying just so I can't fit in with my peers, hipster friends.

maxcrabb 3 years, 7 months ago

Macbook purchased in 2006. Still runs the same the day I bought it.

Around the same time my brother bought an HP laptop with similar specs but half the price. Lasted 1 year. I have countless examples of this happening up to today.

There's lots of small things that make OSX more enjoyable for me. I ask anyone to try and take a screenshot right now on their windows based machine. It's clunky and difficult, and you have to hunt down the photos after the fact because they're saved in some archaic folder buried in windows temp files.

Take a screenshot on a mac, you can pull up crosshairs to select exactly what you want, and the photo is saved right to the desktop.

I understand it may not be for everyone, but hipsters aren't they only Apple users.

...geeks like them too :)

"Macbook purchased in 2006"

LOL. My primary box is a dual PIII I built in 1998 running xp.

"geeks like them too"

Geeks build from components. Anyone that buys a computer in one piece is a casual user.

Uh... Pretty easy

1) Press Print Screen on your keyboard 2) Open Paint 3) Press Control + V on your keyboard 4) Use paint to save your screenshot.

Eighteen seconds, and that's with a heinous load time on this old PC. You know what's fun, though? Not having those pesky decisions to make like what hardware and specific capabilities you want. Apple decides for you.

Use my Imac for work. Irreplaceable. Just so happens it doubles for fun and music and on and on and on and on. Mostly, though, it just works.

One. An Apple IIe computer. Added the 80-column expansion card so it's got a whopping 128K of memory. I'm using the Disk II floppy disk subsystem which is way faster than a cassette drive. And the processor runs as 1MHz - blazing fast.

Fifth option - Don't want, Don't care, Don't need, any toy plastic electronic gimmicks. I will spend my money on something worthwhile.

Adrienne Sanders 3 years, 7 months ago

I'm not a hipster or a fanatic, but boy is it nice to have a computer that just does what it's supposed to and doesn't crash, have weird error messages, or get viruses. Well worth the whopping one hundred dollars more than I paid for my previous HP laptop.

Kyle Reed 3 years, 7 months ago

The fact that you think it doesn't get viruses is very telling.

woodscolt 3 years, 7 months ago

"Very telling" telling what? There is no debate over the fact that security with apple is far superior . The best you can come up with is never say never.

woodscolt 3 years, 7 months ago

Agree that more hackers are after the biggest bang, however, Apple puts substantial effort into security while microsoft essentially leaves the back door wide open. It is not by accident that apple has less security problems. Macs, from a user standpoint, are far easier and reliable than PCs and thats no accident either. A long time pc user just went through the death of his laptop and bought and traded several new pc lap tops because none of them worked. This pursuaded him to try a mac laptop out of desperation. He was in heaven. He said its as if the apple people are on your side and the Pc people were against you. He will never go back. I use both and greatly prefer the mac because of user friendliness. The PC's are clumsy and almost combative to get along with. How is Jesus sister these days.

Kyle Reed 3 years, 7 months ago

...and the fact remains as I said before, Macs get viruses just like any other computer.

woodscolt 3 years, 7 months ago

That is completely false statement. Macs are not immune to viruses they just rarely get viruses. I bought my first mac in '85 and have been using multiple mac computers daily ever since and I have never got a virus once. That is not just like any other computer.

George_Braziller 3 years, 7 months ago

How about a simple option for the poll that is just ""No" I don't own an Apple product."

That was the question.

Brent Atwater 3 years, 7 months ago

Buy or build a machine with decent specs and install Linux...that way you don't have to deal with Apple proprietary apps like iTunes, etc. and don't have the same issues as M$...just saying.

Ken Harris 3 years, 7 months ago

OR you could buy a Mac and spend the time saved doing useful things like talking to people and enjoying yourself.
