There’s a ton of biased bullcrap out there when it comes to Apple vs. PC arguments. While the current Apple ads may be funny to some and somewhat truthful to others, I can’t buy that PC’s just suck, even though I use a Mac in almost every capacity.
For years I used a PC to accomplish tons of tasks from CD and DVD burning to thesis writings to programming a 3D Landscape generator. Currently, I use Mac Pro by day for web design/development and a Macbook Pro by night for web design, illustration, coding and blogging. In my previous job, I used a PC for design and coding and I managed FreeBSD (which I loved) servers for our local College.
I’ve seen many aspects of the computing world and I hate the biased reviews from all ends. It seems to me that once someone becomes a fanatic, follower, or “brand loyal”, all balance of opinion is lost. They seem to defend their turf no matter what the cost. What I want are some realists, some people that are willing to voice a balanced opinion on a feature of any hardware setup or OS feature that are truly innovative, truly helpful, no matter what brand name is slapped on it’s case. I’m looking for a few good men and women to tell me what you love about a Mac, PC or both.
Please comment below and let me know what you love about your favorite computer and why. Possibly tell me what that feature, say 2-finger scroll, etc. is worth to you (how much money would you pay extra to have that feature). Also, let me know your favorites, say Dell XPS, MacBook Pro 17 inch, Windows XP on a MacBook, whatever. Be specific.
