thanks appleswitch....for proving to me that all apple users are complete zealots and cant get over the fact that apples are "pretty" did i mention apples cost $$$$ tons of money.........
A business Mac user gets $24,000 more work done per year, his or her computer is down 14% less, and it costs less to support than any other platform.
P.S. that was before the Mac mini running at only 500$ and don't forget resale value, G4 Ti Powerbooks still sell for more than PCs!
i havent had to install a single driver since i went to XP so your just plain wrong there......what else..........
so you dont use printers? what about digital cameras, HDs, webcams, bluetooth mice and keyboards (that is if your windows box even has bluetoooth, apples already come standard with bluetooth 2.0). All these and more work instantly for macs
safari is dumb because half the time websites dont display right........i love how you compare safari to IE.........you cant compare them......compare it to Firefox or Opera...something decent!!!
Firefox, opera and more come for mac and I was comparing the defaust browsers, If you wan't I can compare Firefoxes, even firefox for mac Is better thsan FF for windows, and I have never come across a page that safari dident load.
first of all i dont even like AIM, but if your going to use AIM i would suggest installing trillian which is better than iChat because it supports multiple im clients.............
yes It does, AIM, Bonjour, and Jabber. And If you want more Adium supports AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo!, Rendezvous, Yahoo! Japan, Gadu-Gadu, Jabber, Napster, Lotus Sametime (via the Meanwhile plugin, and Novell GroupWise.
reason why there arent MAC viruses..................10% of the computer population has MACs..........if i where a hacker, and i wanted to infect as many computers as possible......would i attack the 10% or the 90%..............hmmmmmmmm...........
That 10% stuff for housewives, grow up, windows Is open and insecure and thats why they are so virus' ridden and diseased.
Heres a selection from an article In the Washington post:
"The usual theory has been that Windows gets all the attacks because almost everybody uses it. But millions of people do use Mac OS X and Linux, a sufficiently big market for plenty of legitimate software developers -- so why do the authors of viruses and worms rarely take aim at either system?
Even if that changed, Windows would still be an easier target. In its default setup, Windows XP on the Internet amounts to a car parked in a bad part of town, with the doors unlocked, the key in the ignition and a Post-It note on the dashboard saying, "Please don't steal this."http://www.washingto...3¬Found=true
please explain.....can you back any of this up or do you just have alot of uneducated opinions.....
lol..........thats a bit cocky saying add it to your safari bookmarks werent you just trying to convince her to get it oh well.......
I just want everyone who Is scared of switching because of new things that the mac community Is a vary supportive group where most anyone will take time out of their day to help.
yet again thats just plain wrong the dell laptops come with firwire.....802.11G (btw its not 800, a.211g) comes with the laptops.......oh wait they also come with integrated bluetooth.....no "only apples do"
I wouldent expect a windows user to know, I wasen't talkina about your primative bluetooth 1.0 and PCI firewire. I havde faster firewire than that on my G3 iMac 8 years ago! Im talking about firewire 400+800 and bluetooth 2.0! maby youll reconise those terms in 10 years when windows computers get them!
I can sum this up by saying i have no problem with Apple......I just have a problem with Apple users thinking there better than everyone else, and what they have is better than everyone else
I think Frank Petrie best answered thois questiion in his woonderfull Pro-Mac Essay as listed on Appleswitch
"6. MAC USERS ARE ARROGANT We're not arrogant. We're frustrated (and a little bit spoiled). We've spent our entire Macintosh lives defending our purchase. We've been faced with all the misconceptions listed here, the teasing, harassment, and outward media bias against Apple and the Mac for years, all the while knowing we're using the best computer on earth. Microsoft knows the Mac Operating System is the best, too! That's why Windows 95 looks and acts like it does. Believe it or not, I've actually had arguments with PC experts that try to convince me that Apple copied Windows 3.1! The reality is: we're tired of trying to make Microsoft- brainwashed PC users see the light. If that makes us come off as a bit arrogant, so be it."
You need you get YOUR facts straight before you buy into Microsoft propaganda and listen to people who have to live In a world filled with windows but have no doubt about their computer of choice.
