post #41 of 107
Edit: Opps ment to put this first Most people think:
Cost of computer+Looks of the computer+Brand name= Performance

A recent convo with a group of friends:
Me: hey, guys i just got a new computer.
Friend: Yeah? How much did it cost?
Me: little more than $1000
Friend: What brand is it?
Me: Umm custom built. (Shows them a picture of it i took.)
Friend: Ohh mines better I paid 800$ for it and its from Alienware.
Me: Yeah why do you think its better?
Friend: Because its from Alienware and the case is alot better better.
Me: didn't you tell me the other day you cant even play SC2?
Friend: Yeah....
Me: Well I average like 70 FPS
Friend: So what mine is ALIENWARE.
Me: /facepalm

It's all about advertising. People who don't know much about computers are easy targets to companies like apple. And gamers who don't know much about computers are easy targets to Alienware.

They think their lower parts grow 20 inches when they brag to their friends about their "top-of-the-line 1337 gam3ing PC". Mostly everyone at my school thinks they know everything about computers but in reality, the computer teacher and I are the only people who know their way around it.

Because they are scared that they can't build their own PC.

I dislike /threading but that's basically it. No technical knowledge and enough money.

I took A+ in high school, and I go approached by my teacher to help him build a computer. And it worked out great, that's what got me motivated to build my own. It's been 4 years and his system is still running strong 24/7. Made my year lol. There's no better feeling then parting together a rig and powering it on for the first time. Alienware owners will never feel that, even swapping parts is very simple.

apple does build some good stuff...
1. Their monitors are way better... LED before anyone else... nice stuff... where can you find a better 27 inch than apple?
2. Battery life... their laptops and ipads ect... have amazing battery life... better than anyone else..
3. There laptops are built into solid aluminum enclosures... can't beat that... they look good... are thin... I WANT ONE...
I have a Sony quad core with a 1tb drive in it and a 256 crucial 355mb/s ssd... but i want a Mac Book Pro...

I think apples builds good stuff... no one can touch thier ipad... its cheap than everything else out there and better...

I haven't ever been an apple fan... but i recently got an ipad... and i love it

None of their stuff is bad, just overpriced. You are paying for their customer service and tech support, both of which are diminishing, at least at my local apple store.

Because they're computer illiterate plain and simple.
