Those ads just don't work for me. Yes I am a PC user, but how is an obnoxious, cooler-than-thou hipster Mac going to convince me to buy one when poor, hard working, kind of goofy PC keeps getting picked on?

Despite that, their commercial a few months ago about Vista's security was spot on.

Jon, ditto.

Plus PC is much funnier that MAC (at least in TV)

And I wa shappy to learn that PC can still come with XP for the forseeable future. I like the flaws I know verus learning all the new flaws.

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator: I actually love those ads. I have worked on enough macs to know what a pain in the ass they are. They are at least as annoying as PCs. Mac dude is just kind of a snotty know it all. The commercials are funny though.

"Despite that, their commercial a few months ago about Vista's security was spot on." Yes!

Randal Graves: I don't care if my browser freezes
'Long as I got my plastic Jeezus on the monitor of my PC!

A Army Of (Cl)One: PC is a lot funnier. And after service pack 2, WinXP is actually a very stable operating system, kind of like 3.1. Vista is a hard sell, though. It just seems like more clicks for less tasks, and I agree, rather the devil that I know than the devil that I don't know.

I don't know, Macs are easier if it is your personal computer, otherwise, PCs are better for work.

I disagree. Macs are annoying at home or at work, and PCs are too!

the annoying aspects are different for both

…but the crappy security with the PC is a deal buster for me.

Dr. Zaius, funny you should mention that. One of the computers here at work has crapped out. What's missing? Exactly.

Now I must channel some of that down home I have sinned Jimmy Swaggart speechifyin'.

Stupid inferior OS -

My laptop is great at graphics, has a user friendly interface, and has no virus problems.

Having worked professionally with both Macs and PC's, and having had to deal with both at home, I've got to say that I prefer Macs. A lot.

I have an old eMac and a Mac Powerbook on my desk. Astrogeek has a Mac Powerbook, a Linux box, and a PC laptop (ugly and unloved) from the office. My kids have a PC for video games and homework.

The Macs win around here.

Swinebread: Actually, MAcs don't really have good security - hackers just aren't as interested and viruses and spyware are just not written for macs because they are such a small part of the personal computer population. The few viruses written for Macs have been pretty devastating.

Randal Graves: Bianary digits loves them some jeebus!

MWB: Right click on something. (Made you look!) Find the same freeware progam for a Mac as you can for a PC? Not bloody likely. They both suck.

Kimono Hime: I'm not convinced. Perhaps you have merely decided that one is less annoying than the other.
