Default Re: OS fights back

If i want mac OS i will just make a hackintosh and be happy with that. I like how there value stays high, but i wouldn't buy a used mac because for a little more i can get a new one with warranty and all. IDK i guess i am not a fan of macs.

I have fooled around on them and used them a lot and they just arent something i would go out and buy if i had the money.

You have the best reasoning of anyone i have heard. Only person I have seen say something that strays away from, while my daddy said i could get what ever laptop i wanted so i got a cute white macbook pro. It was only $2000. It drives me crazy haha

^ Basically. If they weren't so...expensive, they might actually be worth it. But you pay too much for what you could easily top on another laptop.

The funny argument I get alot is "well what about the gaming macs?"
No, they aren't fast either. But they stick to the "overpriced part".

For those who think I'm ignorant regarding other operating systems, you can go ahead and shove it.



Don't think I blindly follow Apple and their products, cause that can't be further away from the truth. There's just so much misinformation and lies being spread on these forums as truths, it's not even funny.

J, I know. I absolutely know you don't strictly stick to Apple. I just like messing around with you because how you take it and reply sometimes is incredibly funny. By the way, Nice monitor setup. All 22"s?

EVEN MORE HILARIOUS ---> http://store.apple.com/us/browse/hom...ro?mco=MTI3MDA

That's not what the mac pro is intended for.

I played COD4 on an imac with the 4850 and it looked amazing, and never dropped under 50fps, and this is at max res and high settings.

I think the mac is able to make more out of graphics cards.

Macs are extremely high quality parts, and thus they cost more. Apple makes less profit per unit sold than HP, Dell, and most other companies.

Think about that.
