Also, I don't get customer support when I build my own PC, which I would do before I buy one from Dell or another PC company. That's what this site is mostly for, building your own computer and making it as fast as you can

But I never had any amazing experiences with a Mac, and I wasn't impressed.

But we all have our opinions

And thank God you, or anyone else responding to me, were crazed Mac users that would start cussing me out and declaring that Microsoft is the Devil and Apple is God. Part of the reason I'm somewhat against Macs is the users, they don't shut up about them and they try to make you believe as they believe. Sheesh.

Thank you for not being that way *shakes fist*

That's my
im a little late here.. but im not one of thos ehardcore mac users.. i wont shun you if you dont use it. I love it now, yes. and i lik eit better than my windows pC, which i did build on my own from using this site. Yea thos computer problems could have been from schools are stupid kids going on and jus messing wit files and deleting stuff thinking there cool.


and to the other guy.. sorry your not getting a mac..you can get the "older"
Core duo models on closeout price since they came out with thte core 2 duo, there a little cheaper. check apple.com, macmall.com, or macwarehouse.com i believe. maybe if you find one cheaper your parents will give in.

another thing to think about by the way when factoring the price of a macbook and why its alot... dont forget about the built in Isight camera, the wireless remote to control front row, shock protection, the nicer easier features such as slot loading drive.. the great magsafe powercord, the sleek design and iluminated logos, shiny wide 13" screen, built in wifi (which pretty much every laptop has now) which is sooo easy to use considering i move house to house to school, and built in bluetooth. all packed into a nice compact laptop.

When you are on a mac you are part of this weird tip of clic where you are special in a world of windows. Same with Linux all the kids in my school that use linux have those tux t shirts they always where to show there pride for Linux.
Look, Its FreeBSD (a.k.a. Unix)

The truth is his mom is a windows lover who hates macs and doesnt want to mention it because it's easier to play the "i have money, and i'm your mom so i say what goes" card.
