^^^^^^^^^^^^I lol'd^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

What really bothers me about macs is people who buy them, say they are better and don't know why. My sister left home for university and she insisted on getting the new macbook air, sure she paid for it but I showed her the crazy Laptop she could have gotten from any custom PC company for the same price that outperform the Air by a mile and she still insisted on her stupid mac. Especially the air that thing is like a toy. Don't get me wrong i have a Vigor Gaming XP laptop, a macbook pro and a vigor gaming Xp rig all sitting in harmony at my desk and my Macbook is superior in some way's to both but It's the people who think its a plain and simple better system that really bug me. A university I was at recently bought 400 mac desktops than had them all converted to Xp operating system. Thats just rediculus.

Check out craigslist, seriously! I found a few macbook pros for around $1200 with the ENTIRE adobe CS3 suite installed. Macbook pro all the way btw, I've always used PB but I want a macbook pro soooo bad... I say ask your parents for the $2k, then buy 2 macbook pros on craigslist, and send me one :P I'm sooo annoyed that my laptop broke :(

Fox urine nothing! I would rent an elephant from the local circus and give it a massive dose of ex-lax. I would then proceed to "cork it" with an attached string so when the kids show up KABLOOEE!!!!!! See if their parents can sue an elephant for defacating! -ZZaque

Why do you dislike Safari? Its definitely different from IE, but I like it better. Its all silvery and shiny... :blink:
You could download Firefox and/or Opera if you want something different.

Well, you can put Vista in Classic mode and make it look like Windows XP or 2000. It's really easy to do, too. Also check out http://www.myvistathemes.com/

By the way, if you save your documents in RTF format, anything can read it.

i tried that, it just bugs me more because it all LOOKS normal but if i go to get something from the 'normal' spot it isnt there.

and no, i wont be gaming, just doing the classic thing where i multitask to the extent where my computer overheats and/or crashes... heh


lol i dont like safari BECAUSE its all silvery and shiney, damn you shiney distracting things

Meh, what's so bad about getting a Mac? They work, they're pretty, and they're good quality.
And if you don't want to learn how to use OSX then oyu can get Vista or XP installed on it. :D
Trust me they're not as terrible as all the Microsoft spooners make out.

And contrary to popular uneducated belief you can install most Programs available for Windows on em.

I've got 5 Macs in my house, and 2 very nice new Windows PCs and one Laptop with Vista on it, and I choose the macs over em any day (even thought I like vista a lot), even my older ones. But then again, I don't play games on them.

Plus, Becc, I thought you were into designing stuff on your comp? A Mac would suit you well I think. :P

Mac vs PC really comes down to your preference, so there's little point in debating which is better. Instead try to think of it in terms of what's more useful. Most of what I care about in a laptop is word processing and other homework-involved programs, and all that really matters there is compatibility with whatever network you're on. I say go ahead and do what you need to do to survive your school's mac obsession, regardless of how much you hate it -- by the time college rolls around, you'll need a new laptop anyway, so it's a temporary thing.

Don't do it, are you out of your mind?! For the price you pay on a Mac, you can get an amazing PC with much better performance if not for less. At that, Mac is well known for putting out sub-par products and not taking care of their customers. Is this really what you want?

i despise safari

it needs to die


in a hole


and be buried in a dumpster.

anything like it i wont like. the closer to explorer the better

i dont HATE macs, i just hate how theyre layed out... the doc bugs me. the lack of right click bugs me. the red-orange-green instead of line-square-x bugs me. the shininess bugs me. the lack of customisability and overorginization bugs me.

my biggest issue at the moment is budget. it looks like id really need a macbook pro, and 2500 is the starting cost for one with a 15inch screen

macs arevery nice computers.
If you do not like safari then download firefox which is 1,000 times better than internet explorer.
to right click on a mac all you have to do is hold bown controll and click.
by the way before mac came around, to open a folder you had to type in something like this c:/harddrive/ ect..
microsoft litteraly stole macs idea for clicking on a folder to open it.
mac sued but because of the lack of computer knowledge, mirosoft got away with it.
so the reason windows is the way it is is because Bill Gates stole Apples idea after it came out and copied it(but it was not as good). Then microsoft started give computers to schools so that students would become use to them and buy them when they bought a computer.
mac can get vireses but very few.
Macs look like they are SO expensive but they come with all the stuff that you have to pay extra for on windows.

You can right click with the new mighty mouse anyway. It's just another one of those mythical, uneducated rumours that people seem to have.
All you do is put more pressure on the right side of the mouse then you click. It's got a pressure sensor.
I've had macs for about 5 years. I'm pretty careless with my downloading and I've never had a virus.
