1. WINDOWS CRASHES.... MAC IS SOOO MUCH MORE USER FRIENDLY!

2. UR RIGHT, THATS WHY THEY CAME UP WITH VRTUAL PC, so when the
majority chooses the wrong stuff, the smart ppl arent affected.

3. SHUT UP, in fact, most companies that make computers are trying to
copy Apple's design...(EX. nokia's face plates, picking ur on colors for
computers....)

4. THE G4 Processor is MUCH more efficient than any PENTIUM...

5. UR WRONG AGAIN... mac is much more stable and user friendly

6. P4 sucks.. thats why AMD is doing so well theese days.

1 user friendly :lol: you never used xp have you? and windows xp is alot more stable now
2 well when mac has like 50 programs that are compatible and windows with has like 20000 programs compatible i think windows better
3 im talking bout os not monitor or component.. hell i actually like the mac tower its just that os is very fruity :lol:
4 ok i read the link on mhz myth thing ok thats totally bullshit! first of all mac cannot that kind of technology its a company losing market share and money ppl dont buy macs. if mac was a major SUCCESFUL company like intel or nvidia amd then they can do that and i would believe cuz why the hell would scientists/ engineers work for a company that pays them less cuz their running out of money?! ok lets just say if your an engineer and amd pays you 30,000 a month and mac pays you 20,000 a month youd work for amd wouldnt you? i dont think a losing company has better technolgy then a RICHER company... sorry dude its hard to believe wat macs saying
5 ok maybe its more stable but not user friendly
6 p4 and amd are neck to neck im not saying p4 is better its just that i like p4 more and still atlonxp or p4 will kick the crap out of that g4
:lol:
ahahah its fruity :lol: you never tried windows have you? :lol:

I'd only use a MAC for number crunshing or graphics editing. For gaming definately a PC.

As for the OS I've always prefered windows. (any version) over MAC OS. Although the big difference between mac and pc users is that most Mac users know what the heck they are doing and most windows users have no clue how to use the start menu or what double clicking is. (then again mac users don't really know what right click is unless they have a normal mouse).

A G4 processor running at 500MHz outperforms a P3 1GHz. (If I'm not mistaken it's because the G4 is actually a 64bit processor) versus the 32 bit of the P3 or others in it's league.

Win XP all the way. It's very stable, considering it uses the NT Kernel it has to be stable.
ABIT NF7-S | Athlon 2500XP @ 12x200 | Corsair HydroCool200 | 3DMark2K1 V330 = 15722 ~ 3DMark03 V340 = 4988

3rd pc: Dual Intel PPro 200MHz (Linux) ->decomissioned due to heat problems

microwave you are mis-using the quote feature, by using it that way you are saying that zero said all of that. it also weakens your point.

but face it, the mac market is going down every day, they have a nice product but its just not going to cut it against MS, INtel, Amd.


BTW i find it hard to believe anything on those pages you posted, mainly because they are writen by mac, its a sales pitch pure and simple. its the same reason you can't believe anything Intel, MS or AMd says about there products. of course they are going to say its great, they want you to buy it. Post some third party praise about the mac and i will give you credit.

winxp
1. the look is okay
2.much more user friendly then i first figured
4.customisable

mac
1.looks okay
2.nice toolbar on the bottom in the newest os
3.dragging pics to desktop or whatever is good

what i hate.
ejecting crap out of macs and having to drag the drive into the rubbish bin.
the one mouse button sucks. tho you can use two.
im not use to not having a start menu sort of task bar. which can be sorta found at the top.
minimising is crappy. tho it is still good how it tries to go to the toolbar at the bottom.
why does everyone want to copy the look of this os. it isnt the best thing since slice bread in imho.

other than os for macs
i actually do like how they look and how these computers come with super drives. (basically dvds, for roughly the same price).

still expensive. waaaay to expensive
lcd screens look nice
I love it when you touch me there

There are a few reasons why I use Windows:

1. I am still in college and I have to be compatible with on school computers

2. I can build my own PC right now at a low budget and get all of my programs cheap from school (I got winXP and office XP for only $10 each).

3. Compatibility issues with programs on a mac OS

Mac keeps getting more and more programs for it though, and they are far ahead on dvd recording. In a few years when I have more money, I will definitely think of buying a mac.
