Logitech and Razer mice work on Macs. Although Mac users that game on the Mighty or Magic Mouse are dumb. Plus acceleration is totally broken on OSX.

Want to own them even more? Yea, convince them that the one-key mouse is all stylish and stuff again...

I thought the latest iteration of the Apple Mouse had a right click?

Or do you have to have an Apple Mighty Mouse or other mice with right clicks to play TF2?

Just ask those mac users how their overclocking is going ;D

Or How their new 5970 performs.. oh wait ;p
lol, I had a G5 when I was at uni, and the only game available was SIMS,

I swapped it for a DELL XPS 720 H2C!! lol, i'm never going back!

this is true, you buy a Mac and its an all in one, hassle free solution,

Mac users are probably trying to play games on anteque hardware while still talking crap about how much better mac is..

I mean a lot of people get a mac in the first place because, its a relatively "worry free" device.. So I'm sure you can understand the hypocrisy of people who know little about computers.. buying the computer which is really the "easiest to use" according to all the commericals.. and then.. bragging about having the "better computer" when in reality they choose to buy a mac in the first place because of a lack of knowledge..

I agree, they want something that works first time without any tech knowledge, Ironic that it is mostly IT professionals that use macs too?

The thing that makes the majority of Mac users think they have superior hardware is because they are comparing it to their last computer a $600 Dell!

Because our grade of hardware isn't the stuff the public see on the shelves of there local Dixons or PC world, buying a MAC seems like a good deal! the product itself oozes style and yuppies love that!!

A good eg. Part of my job is to price and purchase hardware for newly franchised offices, My boss (a middle class ex banker from london) said "we have to have macs, they dont break and are faster" - a typical view, i then proceeded to explain that macs are aimed at a particular market and and priced and spec'd for the very same market, for the same price the offices could have top-of-the-line Dells! (not a good idea either) he asked for a comparison,

so for 1700 GBP i built an i5-750 / gtx285 / 4gb ddr3 / msi-gd-65 / 750w psu and still had change for a 24' monitor!

He agreed and decided to let me buy the individual parts and build them on site!! haha, ssaved him over 3k (which may or may not be responsible for my sig rig!)

I'm pretty sure Macs did have superior hardware at one point, but then they switched to intel making it a level playing field, and correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the best processor for Mac a Core 2 Duo? or maybe it was, i think they can use i5/i7 now.


And I'm not saying all mac users are like that.. Infact I'm not saying most are.. but, I'm saying there are huge herds of them out there..

So if your going to discuss how "immature" the thread is among other things.. or about how your going to "own" people we should at least keep it on topic as to why we are having this conversation in the first place.
So to conclude, Macs are good, to the average user they are amazing, to us (the enthusiast) they are average.

and NOBODY likes propriety technology (apart from Mr. Dell and Mr. Jobs)

you may have saved a lot of money building your own, but are you willing to support however many computers at a workplace single handedly? That is why companies contract IT businesses to handle all of that, and that involves a lot of overhead costs that dont allow fully decked out computers. That's great you were able to save your boss money, but that's just ONE computer.

I remember a thread a while back where a lab teacher was thinking of building computers for his lab. He would have to handle all of the support issues for each and also RMAs and what not.

with apple and dell you get top tier support, from genius bars to onsite technicians.

for me the support you get with a mac is second to none. Like Dell, they overnight parts to AASPs and if they're good they can get it done same day, totaling a turn around within 2 days. Try getting an RMA back within a week for a custom build.
