The hardware isn't exactly Apples strongest point. (though it does look awesome) You can also buy upgrades from companies other than Apple. I know I would never buy RAM from Apple because the price is ridiculous.Originally Posted by Shiftfallout
How can you deny the amount of viruses Windows has? While OS X has zero, Windows has hundreds of thousands.As for those viruses, looks like you have been watching too many of those false mac vs pc commercials.
But many of these applications accomplish the same things. You can find an application for Mac to replace almost any Windows app. Macs obviously aren't meant for gaming as I have already stated. Protection? Maybe Macs don't have protection because they don't need it. They are actually secure unlike Windows. The user base doesn't matter, because if you buy something based on how many other people have, you are an idiot.Truely the PC has at least ten times more applications, games, options, customization, protection and user base than that of a mac.
They don't cost a ton more. They may cost slightly more, but it is nothing unbearable.Im not dissing the mac, its just true. Go ahead, goto an electronic store that sells software, tell me how big the PC section is and how big the mac section is. Bingo. Then look at the prices for that software. Bingo again. While macs have less options for apps, games, third party hardware, they also cost a ton more. Bingo!
In the end it is all personal preference, and Windows is good for some things and people, while Mac is good for others.Again, nothing wrong with macs, but lets not pretend they are more than they really are.
