Submitter, you forgot "easily persuaded by slick marketing programs to buy grossly overpriced, incompatible computers because they are considered stylish."

It's heart-wrenching to hear about a nice girl being in such a tough bind like that. Could you forward her email addy? I want to send her some money to help her out.

my room mate uses nothing but her iphone and ipad... and it's painful to listen to her rattle on about about much "better" they are vs PC without ever actually giving me useful arguments.

The only one I ever hear is "they don't ever get viruses" -- wow, really? much not read the news much.

Using that argument i should be able to say "the ford pinto is the best car in existance right now - you never hear about anyone having an accident or dying in one now"

Apple makes fisher price versions of useful tools. Checking your email and talking on facebook, and looking like a douche in starbucks are not mission critical.

I'd love to see what the data centers that power Apple cloud storage and their enterprise structure are running off of -- pretty sure it's not crApple

I work in a mom and pop IT store. I repair and sell laptops of the windows variety. A previous employee of ours runs the mac shop in our town. From our conversations this is what I have gathered about end users.

Most pc users that are female are in their mid-thirtys soccer moms getting their computer fixed for a family member. A number of them game, but with WoW becoming so huge the age range we get that plays is from 8yo to 80yo, so gaming is not as good a metric anymore. Also, I don't count farmville or whatever facebook tripe is out right now as gaming.

The mac users tend to be either in their 20s or their 80s. We rarely get middle aged women in the shop with macs. I do know this, Mac users are the most brutally self centered asshats ever. The expect shiat to be done today and cheap. I will take 50 biatchy soccer moms over one overly aggresive mac users. Also Mac gamers are like bigfoot, everyone has seen one but always blurry and out of the corner of your eye. Mac, the non-gaming platform.

The difference is the PC crowd buys their computers to do a job. Like you buy a lawn mower or a gaming console.
The Mac crowd buys an iProduct to wear as an accessory for their current lifestyle. Flash before substance.

Every mac I have rolled out since the intel cores started coming in them has been boot camped with windows. The customer has to pay us to do this. So even Mac users need windows to run the programs they want/need. Doing this or having multiple virtual machines that run windows is like saying you don't watch t.v. but have a huluplus membership.

WhippingBoy: FizixJunkee: clowncar on fire: FizixJunkee: If our 'hood is representative, 27 out of 30 Starbucks customers use a Mac, and nearly 100% of them are hot (no fatties in our area...it's west Los Angeles). Of the three remaining Starbucks customers, two of them are medical doctors whose PCs are given to them by their hospitals, and the remaining dude---guaranteed to be male---is just a clueless hold-out.

We can assume you ar not one of the two docs then? *snert*

Physics PhD chick + Mac user since 1998. Yeah, I dress a little funny, but my head is probably smaller than average.

I get so sick of this religious argument. I use Apple products. They "just work". I have worked in IT since 1994, and used to be the type that had a tower PC that never had the sides on it, always swapping parts. At one point I decided no longer wanted to do at home what I did for a living. That and Mrs. Fool didn't like Linux/Gnome (circa 2000) and I got an iMac. I was sold. Then when OSX came out, they got it. Apple got what a UI should be like. I still have to use Windows at work, but I have grown to hate the UI since Windows 2000.

I don't game, so that isn't a problem for me. I can use the Mac for whatever I need. And there is that neat unix-type base that the OS is written on. MS products are trying to take that away. I admit that I am afraid that Apple will turn all their products in to a iOS based system in the future. Don't take away my terminal!

Fissile: I just can't understand why I should pay such a premium for Apple. I built my last two PC for nothing with parts I pulled out of the company junk pile.

Because a mid-range Mac is (for the most part) fairly hassle-free and looks pretty sitting on a desk. It also has a nice UNIX-based OS. IMO, they also have some of the best mid-range notebooks on the market. The problem is that it comes at a premium. The two grand I blew on my five-year-old Macbook was money well spent in my book as I've had few problems and after all these years it's still kicking like a mule.

However, if you want to either go to the low end of the market or the high end, PCs are where it's at. You can get or build a tiny "email and web" system for dirt-cheap or you can build a behemoth monster of a gaming rig for under $2000. Windows 7 is a decent OS (and for commercial software, the only game in town), though it's no OS X and Linux is pretty good and free but comes with plenty of baggage.
