RE: Mac or PC?



  • Macs are far more expensive for PC’s for less performance.
  • The Blue Screen of Death doesn’t happen anymore (seriously, when was the last time you got a BSOD? And how much porn did you torrent before it happened?)
  • Larger and more widespread app ecosystem available
  • You’re able to take them apart and upgrade and in general do more stuff with Windows that you can’t with Mac OS X.

Mac OS X is a fairly locked down OS, where you’re paying for looks over substance. Who cares what your computer looks like? Does it run your programs? That’s the real question. Paying extra for something that “looks cool” on the outside, when it comes to a computer, is a waste of money.

And I write this from a Ubuntu laptop, so I’m not hardwired into Windows. But it’s a better deal.
