I had a macbook. the aluminum one. and the only things i liked about it where the aluminum shell and the mouse pad. I hated the OS and the Keyboard... It was so dificult learning how to use it and find programs taht worked with my non mac friends. I sold the dam thing and said good riddance.... I am just to Microsoft. that and when i ran a few too many programs... It crashed on me and i lost the OS.... it was weird. but hey, just means mac aint for me. I hear from lots of people that theya re great.

lol wow its funny to see the pc fanboys coming out to bash a great computer system.
now I use both PC and Mac and personally PC is for gaming and Mac is for design work,
I use Adobe products a lot and they just seem to run a lot better on the Macs
lets face it both are filled with the essentially the same parts and the "skin" ie the OS is
the only real difference in them.

have fun with your mac's they are great and game hard on your pc's thats the way to go.

Oh dear god.

The ONLY reason that "PC fanboys" are bashing anything is because of the typical intolerable open-mouthed breathing metro-sexual that stares down his nose at you because you run a PC.... while not knowing a damn thing about computers at all.

Right, so what place does it have in this thread? All of us that have macs in this thread USE Pcs. Hell, I only have one Mac and 10 PCs...

Plus, you're no better than those nose-breathers cause you're doing EXACTLY the same effing thing, you just don't have a god like they do.

That is the point! If I wanted a Mac I would buy a regular laptop (for half the price) and install leopard. If you feel it necessary to pay twice as much for the same thing so you can look "cool" then be my guest. :)

This week my friend just bought a Mac for over $2500. I looked at the specs and what you get for that price is laughable. Just shows that Mac's ad campaign saved the company.
