[BGR] Half of all U.S. households own at least one Apple product - Page 13

post #121 of 201
We have one Apple product in this house (soon to be three), and that's my Mom's iPhone 4. I plan on buying an iPad since it's a fantastic tablet, and a MacBook Pro 13 since it's a great portable laptop.
Retribution.

I have one, unfortunately. An iPod Nano 4th Gen. I hate the thing.

None of you people have ever owned an iPod? Seriously? They are one of the most ubiquitous tech devices on the market. I'm actually surprised the number is 49% have 0 Apple devices, I expected it to be closer to 25%.

I own a MacBook, and I enjoy using it. I'm addicted to OSX after using it for so many years. There is always a way to get the same task done on Windows, but the experience is just so simple on a Mac. Things like MAMP, Github for Mac, TextMate, Espresso, and the terminal are just so easy to work with. Keep in mind I did say I was aware that the same tasks can be completed on Windows, so please don't give me a list of equivalent programs, I already know what they are. I also use them because I don't always have a Mac in front of me.

When I bought my MacBook it was not this huge rip off that people always assume a Mac will be. I purchased my MacBook before things like Bluetooth, Wireless N 5Ghz, and a webcam were standard. At the time if you added all the features a MacBook came standard with to a well built Windows laptop it came to the same price, if not more (this includes things such as the CPU, HDD, and in some cases an extended battery to match the battery life). If you added the features to a flimsy budget laptop you only saved about $150 at the most for a product that would of fallen apart in the time I've owned my MacBook.

The number one thing that annoys me about haters is the RAM price they always bring up. It's not that hard to put your own RAM in most Macs (other than that stupid Air). You don't have to pay Apple their ridiculous RAM prices, just get it yourself and put it in. I'm pretty sure everyone here knows how to install a stick of RAM. If you're arguing for the computer illiterate, why? I'm sure they get ripped off by more vendors than just Apple. Not to mention the price I always see it compared to is RAM you would install yourself in a PC anyways.

Apple doesn't make a desktop, they have a workstation, and a exotic laptop with a nice screen.

Uhm... I was being serious. You can go no all day about spec's but for me it's not as important in a laptop than it is in a desktop. Laptops are for portability, if you're rendering your maya files on your laptop you're handicapped.

My wifes laptop is windows, because she doesn't like apple computers. She also wants something other than an iPhone next time, and thinks my tab is better than hers.

You've trained her well. My wife as well now knows what the differences are and can put her friends (average iPhone/Mac users) to shame in an argument . redface.gif

Soon I'll have to resync my mothers ipod as the computer that it was synced with is no longer with us. Isn't that some crap? And then she off and gets an ipad so i still can't use HER computer to sync because she got the least compatible one. Now I'll have to use my dads (first & el cheapo) laptop which is nearing eol. So I'll have to do it again. Meanwhile my dad and I have cheaper ($) better products that don't bend you over every time you HANDLE the soap. Apple will invent a kind of lifestyle.... today it's known as being incarcerated. thumb.gif

Nope. Never ever. Will not touch an ipod. I hate itunes, apple, and ipods are too problematic. I'll stick with my far more capable (compared to all but itouch) Walkman. biggrin.gif
