actually, mac discovered probably the worst security compromise possible a few months ago, funny how mac OSX was out for how many years, and no one found it? maybe no one was looking?

and furthermore, macs are for emo kids. which is probably why nobody cares about those computers..... or their owners.

what else would an artsy "scene" kid own?

they can't intergrate themselves into the rest of society which seems to like a little diversity, so they had to own the one computer that only comes in one style.

Are you serious, pimp vince? Come on now. That's like saying iPods are for "emo kids". Your logic fails.

no will i'm not kidding. QUICK! phone the political correctness police before i offend you for owning an iPod or a mac.

90% of emo kids i see have those stupid goofy looking white ear buds sticking out of their pretentious heads, symbolizing that they're far too good for the peasantry of CD. But they probably all have the 'nano' because their pants are too tight to fit anything else. also the logic clearly extends from the computer analogy in that emo kids again don't want that diversity of regular societal products. It's almost as if these kids try and get the latest and greatest gizmos from their parents and yet still hate life, this is what John Stuart Mill was afraid of, instant gratification always, without fail leads to laziness, lack of gratitude and boredom. they're the product of an over-materialized society, sometimes i feel pity on them, but other times i think to myself that if had the brains to see that happenning, they wouldn't be emo, hence my hatred. that.... to me, describes emo to a tee.

but that's just my opinion...

Macs have their uses. If you are in a Media field, they are far superior to Windows computers. The software is simply much better for Film Editing, Photo Editing and the like.

That being said... I can't stand Ipods (I have a RIO that I paid far less than the equivelent Ipod) and I'm not a Mac user.

ever since adobe premiere came out.... video editing on windows rules.

plus, windows PC's as a general rule have much better specs (ram, hd, CPU speed, etc).... who knows... maybe macs just need less.

You know igor, I feel emotionally scarred from that post, I love the report button though, it makes things so much easier. Macs are amazing machines, I love how Microsoft's Vista slogan is The Wow Starts Now, yet since Vista is a blatant ripoff of Mac OSX, Apple's slogan should be 'The Wow Started 5 Years Ago'.

Windows is like the Ford of computer OS's, big, fat, slow and unreliable. While Mac OS is like a Ferarri, fast, sleek, sexy and is the best for performance.

Wrooooooong!

It's better than Windows, but it's not the best. Mac's probably lower-tier when it comes to the Unix operating systems in terms of performance.

Yes but Unix is generally still text environment and not GUI, Mac OS is the best GUI based OS that is mainstream, aside from Linux which still has hardware compatibility problems, however Linux isnt really mainstream.

Also, Mac OS is better because it works with the hardware, which is single proprietary components that are designed for the OS. Windows machines have millions of components and hundreds of brands so the OS is not designed to work with specific hardware brands. Mac components may be expensive but at least you will get better performance for general computing. Also if you buy any new Mac desktop with a Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, when ATI releases the R600 (X2000 series), there will be a new video card for Mac's to use which will be one of the most powerful video cards on the market.

I have never seen a product that was made by MS that was electronics based aside from the Zune mp3 player which sucks (those things are a joke).
