my macbook pro is probably the best investment i ever made in my life. it opened up a whole new, amazing world for me - from sharing pictures to creating videos - and the exciting part is that i know i've only tapped into a small % of what it can really do...
I am pretty new here but I have been in IT and computer Technology for 6 years working on PC's, I own a design business where I design websites etc and in college I trained on MAC pro G4's & G5's
I used and lived by PC's up till recently when I decided to purchase a MacBook Pro for offsite, and personal use. I now intend to convert my entire home network and computing system to MAC. Its easier to use, has more style, and more energy efficiant....Go Steve Jobs...
If you have a student id or know someone with one you can get discounts...I got $200 off my MBP and got a free printer.
At a conference yesterday, I met a very interesting, engaging researcher/professor named Marissa at Radar Research. She talks about Apple consumers - really interesting.
A new marketing study has found Mac owners tend to think they're more extraordinary than the average Joe. They're also more likely than PC users to whiten their teeth, drive hybrids, drink Starbucks coffee and eat organic food. Andrea Gardner reports.
Have we turned into a cliche? Is Apple's Marketing turning us into clones? AUGHHHHH!
Podcast is really interesting...
apple apple apple. unless your a programer get an apple. it's so easy to use and the multi media functions are SO user friendly. pc is like driving a manual car for the first time. jerk jerk jerk stall stall stall.
PC. I've never liked Apples, don't quite know why. Plus PC's have a lot of programs that I use for school that Apple's don't have and don't even support. Garage band and all the photo stuff are cool on Mac's, but I think I'm gonna be a PC person all my life.
I own both. From what I understand Macs are supposed to be the better hardware, though I did burn out the RAM in my Mac Mini by hooking up my digital piano via a MIDI hub while updates were being downloaded. I had thought that the Mac was supposed to support hardware such as MIDII capable devices, but I suppose not, in this case. I would have to say that while viruses have plagued my PC on more than one occasion, and including today, I enjoy the versatility that the PC offers, and prefer it to a Mac despite it's generally slower speed capacity.
PC, I find it to me a more versatile platform. It gives me greater control and more customization and buying options. The Apple tax and proprietary everything just don't do it for me. If I want to upgrade my RAM, or video card, or hard drive I'd like to be able to do it and to pick which component I wanted.
In terms of operating systems, I still am a Windows guy. I have nothing against Apple but there operating systems just don't do it for me. It terms of stability, I've seen and had more Macs crash on me in the past 5 years than their Windows counter parts. Although I do see how their OS could be a good fit for users who prefer and need more simplicity. With the simplicity in mind, I've been thinking about introducing my grandparents to a Mac.
I'll admit I'll probably by a Mac at some point but a Windows PC will be my go to system every time.
