    1. Seems there’s a lot of idiots out there that think just because something is more expensive, it’s got to be better. They care not for the actual merits of the product. They get it home, realize their mistake, but to save face they try to convince themselves it actually is better by trying to convince everyone else. This applies to Mac users AND Christians.

      • From a perspective of pure utility, sweatpants and a hoodie have the same functional value as a tailored Hugo Boss suit. A 1998 Toyota Celica has about the same functional value as a new BMW. So are people stupid for buying nice clothes and new cars?

        • So you’re saying Mac users buy Macs just to be trendy? Apple could sell people old 386 based systems and call it the i386 or the iSlow and idiots would pay thousands of dollars for them?

              Laughed when I found out most of the fuzz is about dragging a fucking item to a Trash Can.

              “See? It’s so easy!”

          • No. I’m saying that if two items have comparable utility, aesthetic considerations can reasonably account for a price difference. This concept is universally accepted in everything from watches to food. But computers are the only market where anyone acts like its a bad thing.

            • I don’t think universal means what you think it means.

            • I guess there are exceptions. But unless you’re Amish or something, you’ve probably spent more on an item for aesthetic reasons when you could have bought something equivalent for cheaper. If you go to the bar, you pay more for drinks that you would a liquor store. Going to a concert in more expensive that listening to mp3s. People spend way more on jewelry than on computers and it doesn’t *do* anything. This is practically the basis for modern, Western society and they only people who aren’t on board with that are Cheat-o covered nerds. Intangible benefits still have monetary value.
              I’m not even talking about Macs vs Windows anymore, I just think your original statement is completely disconnected from reality.

            • Wait, what the hell is going on here? It feels like somewhere in this string I’ve come across statements built on a foundation of assumptions that Macs are both aesthetic and comparable in utility to their competitors… w– wai.. what?

              I thought Mac’s biggest appeal was that it was the computer equivalent tricycle – you have to TRY to crash the thing because you can’t customize jaaaaack – which makes it perfect for college campuses. Patch into the network, write your papers, if you try changing anything you’re expelled.

    4. Although I will never buy one, I did try out the ipad. It’s pretty gosh darn nifty. I loved the google map/earth. I’d love to go on a roap trip using just the ipad for a guide.
