Macs are very stable. Macs retain extreme market value. I mean, for example, you can buy a 3 yr old MacBook pro for 70% of original retail cost. Try that with a pc or ANY other brand of electronics.

All the android users who hate on apple are no better. You hopped on your own "droid" bandwagon and hate on another product just because you can. So don't think your hipster remarks are credible in any means.

Yes, there are many uneducated and uninformed people who buy them JUST bc they are pretty. Those are your "hipsters," no matter that brand they choose to buy.

And as always...you get what you pay for.
One of my closest friends works at the local apple store we have had debates about this many times. these are the general conclusions we've come too between myself, Josh (works for Apple) and Ben (who is an IT guy for spectrum health, he knows windows computers like the back of his hand)

Their computers: Are great/stable/a gift from God whatever but they are expensive for the hardware you get and anyone who says otherwise is lying. still doesnt make me want one any less than a pc though

The iPhone: over-priced piece of Poop. even Josh who sells dozens a day and can do things on his iPhone that 90% of the world doesnt even know you can do WITHOUT jailbreaking. admits that Androids have the lead in the cellular market. the only thing Apples iPhone does any better than any other phone on the market is take photo's with a clearer display and have a longer lasting battery. App/hardware wise you aren't missing out on any content by having an iPhone. Sure when the iPhone first came out you were but thats no longer the case.

also to the apple nerds who maintain that the iphone 4 camera is the best thing since sliced bread wtf?!?! most of you have SLR's and if its something you actually want a good picture of you will use your slr anyways so who cares?

lol

anyways thats all.
I like Apple/Windows/Droid.
I will continue to use my iPod for music because playlists/file managing is easiest for me in iTunes.
I will keep using PC's because thats what they use at work and I dont use a computer at home enough to warrant trying to get up to the same proficiency level I am at on 7
I will keep using my Droid because it offers more of everything I want compared to the iPhone.

I dont hate people who like any of them.
Jeff and I started out teasing about this but Andrei took the butt sore apple defender path and opened up a huge mess.

Also I dont want to see anybody come in here telling me that AT&T's 3g is as fast as 4g service.

We have video documented proof of my droid loading Yahoo.com, Woot.com, and Youtube.com faster than a windows7 phone and the iPhone4 by a good 5-10 seconds before the page is fully loaded/images and flash included.

I like my iPhone. It does what I want it to do. I'm sure I'd like the droid just as much if/when I decide to switch. I'm not all crazy into electronicy things so it does what I want on a system I'm familiar with. End of story

Waaaaaaaaat!!!!! Wtf happened to car bradley!??!??!

I will be ignoring any apple discussion from here on out. To me they are still overpriced, and honestly after 5 years both the pc and mac would be paperweights and owners would want new ones. Also Ive heard both ends of the apple warranty spectrum. That being said, im done, it was started as me teasing andrei as bradley said. I guess no one understands that on teh internets anymore.

Ah a mac vs PC battle.

Macs are overpriced for the equipment, by FARRR. You can build a more powerful PC for less than half I'd imagine.. And if you have any computer knowledge at all it's hard to actually GET a virus. I've never not once had one from MY doing on my computer. My parents on the other hand... they click on anything. All you have to do is use common sense and a good program to scan torrents and other files you may download on the internet that could corrupt you - oh, and never use IE because you're begging to be backdoor'd. ;)


That said, Mac OS system is nice, it's comfy and easier to use IMO. Linux > Mac, thus PC > mac.

Also side note, I cant remember the first time I did my trans if I left the trans in there and was just able to separate the engine from the trans to just do the clutch or if I pulled it. I dont remember dealing with the axles and the gear oil the first time... I know I did second time b/c I had trans rebuilt...
