I do not have one personally, but my school insists on them. Apparently old-school macs are cheaper than old school PC'sOriginally Posted by Bigjake52
Linux is the ultimate RAM efficiency user. Hm...never seen anyone running osx on a live cd or usb drive. XP with SP1 & 2 is just fine.
When you say "bugs" you mean security threats. Again, linux. Open source also helps when problems DO arise. Better apps? Music, video editing. That's it. Anything else is available for Windows or open-source. (IE, apophysis, GIMP)
yeah, music editing. Yay!i like macs more, i record music and it allows me to do a lot more on a mac than a pc. a mac is a more user friendly creative computer and a pc is cheaper standard universal computer.
And when mac users say "more user friendly", I say "if you don't understand computers, get a mac" and then they get all pissy.... weird circle...
I wouldn't say PC's are universal. On the contrary, mac's are much more cookie cutter computers. It is the un-universalness that makes PC's better for power users.
@ the OP. I agree with NB...get a 360 elite or something.
yeah, i dont get computers to well and a mac allows me to do the things i need to do without giving me a headache like a pc would. I'm a console gamer so, i dont use a pc for gaming. i use my mac for video editing, music engineering/producing, and just surfing the web and stuff. also brawny do you play c&c 3, i might get it, i see the one dude in ur sig.
lol, no...I'm planning on buying it when I upgrade my computer though. I'd recommend it.
Okay, if you get the mini, make sure you at least add some ram to the paltry 512 or whatever offered. The video also sucks hard on that thing. And you have to factor in the monitor in your pricing. As well as keyboard/mouse.
I would get the Mini, I love mine. A PC with Linux is also a great choice, but keep in mind that you can run Linux (or any other OS that you could run on a PC) on a Mac too. OS X can't be (legally or easily) run on a PC.
Actually they recently made the default amount of RAM to 1GB when they upgraded to Core 2 Duo processors. (they used to have Core Duos) He is going to use his TV for a monitor so that doesn't matter. And yes the graphics card sucks, but it shouldn't be too big of a problem unless you are trying to game on it. (if you are then you are an idiot)Originally Posted by Brawny
I find linux has an easier learning curve than OSx actually.....
Why not buy a full desktop? should be cheaper than the mini.
I'd get the Mac Mini.
Just because you'd get a lot more use out of it.
And OS X Version 5 is gonna be really awesome.
Well do you?
So if a Mac is a PC, why can't you get a nice 4" upgrade on your monitor whenever you want.Originally Posted by My god the Wii owns...
that is the most funnist thing i have heard EVER!!!Originally Posted by Brawny

A pc is just a computer designed to be used by a small group of individuals, so actually a Mac does fit the definition of "personal computer".Originally Posted by Gaz
I never add friend codes.

Don't ask me why.....
