Funny you mac users always play the reliability card. The fact of the matter is if you're not a retard and actually look after your PC it will last as long as any mac. Guess what? I've had my laptop for years and it's never crashed, BSODd, over heated, caught a virus, nothing.

Ah, but the PC still runs on good ol' craptastic Windows. Ive used my iMac for over a year now almost constantly and rarely shut it down and have yet to have even one minor crash or cockup. Compare that to most peoples experience of Windows and, well, it makes sense. I'd much rather pay for quality and reliability over the fact that 'omggzzzzz u can play warcraftz lyk a beast man omg'.
The fact that Windows is used by the vast majority of the population, you'd have to be thick to not understand that more people will experience crashes, especially as a lot of the more technologically incapable people go for Windows.
So whilst this thread is arguing about Windows+PC vs Mac, you introduce Dell, which were the fault of his sh*te experience?

It was actually down to multiple hardware faults, which could've been down to the poor manufacturing of his Dell laptop, not because he felt like breaking it.
Don't jump to conclusions mate
So the post was completely irrelevant, as what you basically said was "I'll probably get negged for this, but a Bugatti Veyron is faster than a Nissan Micra".

And now, please note that I did write subjectively
! If that graphic is right, then point taken. But compared to other laptops I used (Toshiba, HP) my Macbook's definitely faster. It's probably because of the specs, but still: It's my experience and I never said otherwise.

Where to begin....
(Original post by mabelbarc)
was just reading this thread about uni students buying macs: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1950160
it made me think about why everyone seems to be getting one these days when clearly there are far cheaper options. Personally I shall be buying one as soon as i can afford them and this is why:
My Dad has always had a mac, he's an architect, an engineer, a photographer and a musician; he has always found the mac to be the most suitable to fit all his criteria because of the up to date software and clever program.
His first mac still works (and we use it!), it just doesnt recognise the internet its so old.
Its all encompassing of my other gadgets -ipod, iphone etc
They ALWAYS look good -theyre a timeless classic.
They have far more logical software to use (i'm not saying windows etc is no good but its far more complicated)
Also its nearly always first to bring out a new ingenious product. (like the ipad which has left every other technology company gagging to keep up)
The mac is ahead of time, i love it and it beats my Old Dell by miles.
However I know That loads of people will disagree, what are your reasons?
COME AT ME! :P
Firstly, any software that is only for macs and does not utilise unix is old software that has not realised that Macs are no longer the most powerful and have not been for many years. As for music software, that is laughable seeing that no Mac even has a dedicated soundcard
All computers will recognise devices, Macs recognise the least.
Logic has nothing to do with the software. It is simple, which for many users, is not good as it is very restricting.
Actually Apple do not develop the tech, they just rush it to come out first. As for the components in the laptops and desktops, they become over priced and dated very quickly.
How do you get around the lack of dedicated sound card?

Because I took Music Tech at A Level am now at university, and programs such as Logic Pro are fantastic, and is only available on mac, which is why I have one
