If your choice was between a Mac and something that you can get at BestBuy, go with the Mac. Fortunately, those aren't your only choices. You can also go outside, breathe in the fresh air, and get raped by roving bands of Linux users.

Did you assholes biatch this much when you couldn't put new tubes in your radio?

Anyone who doesn't build a computer from scratch, including the actual components, is a LOSER! This means if you use MacOS, Windows, or any firm of Linux which you didn't program and design yourself, then you suck at computers and thus life itself!

Now if you'll excuse me, I need to play some EVE (WoW is for losers) with my guild as we discuss how the world is filled with people who aren't as cool as us.

It's not like teenage girls are known for upgrading their computers anyway.

ThatGuyGreg: asmodeus224: The MacPros are entirely upgradeable and customizable

And way, way behind. I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't last much longer.

And, like you said, pricey. Holy shiat.

There is one in almost every video editing suit I've been inside. I doubt they are going away anytime soon.

Rwa2play: Darth_Lukecash: You buy a Mac so you don't have to worry about the insides.

I think most computer problems stem from stupidity of do it yourself people.

You mean you LIKE spending $1500-2000 per machine once it's out of style?

Don't you have some neon lights that will change color according to CPU load to solder to your motherboard? Or maybe a case mod?

StrangeQ: People that actually know about computers shouldn't care about this since they would never buy a Mac to begin with.

When Linux approaches the user experience of a mac, we'll talk. When it's as nice to use, when it's as seamless, when I can use it without wanting to put a boot through my motherboard once a day, then you can shiat-talk those of us who know our way around computers and still use Macs.

I use Ubuntu for 8 hours per day. Trust me, we're not there yet.

No matter what combination of hardware and OS you end up with, there are times when your machine will make you furious. With Macs, I find those times to be when I look at my credit card statement after buying a new machine, when I discover that they no longer include OS install media out of the box, and that's about it. With everything else, it's constant.

Isn't that one of the benefits of buying a mac? That you don't have to know anything about computers other than how to use the interface?

L.D. Ablo: I use computers for 3-4 years then replace them. There's no point in upgrading since new processors and other stuff constantly turn up.

thanks for that Mr Landfill.
