    2. Apple has cool stuff if you have money to waste, not going to lie.

      But the fact that people get it to show it off makes me sick.

      Seeing anyone with a full touch screen phone makes me think less of them, just because I know the full touch screen is harder to use and people only get them because it’s “FULL TOUCH SCREEN”

      My casio casiopea was full touch screen 10 years ago…it’s nothing new…

    3. I’ll be sure to pass this along to Apple fanbo—

      Who am I kidding, as long it’s shiny, they’ll put it up their asses.

      • You bring up another one of my points:

        People are materialistic.

        Take the new mac air for example:

        No doubt people who can’t even afford it are going to want it and get it just because it’s the newest thing AND expensive.

        I was watching “true life: illegal street racer” yesterday after seeing “Will never got his $500…” posted with an image of some fast and furious looking car on /o/ and found the video.

        Basically, about 5 minutes into the episode, the guy basically has said he’s spent a bunch of money on the car, blah blah, and he likes how people start to gather around the car and compliment him.

        His girlfriend (gee wonder why) even said he loves the attention and she just stands back while he gets compliments for something he BOUGHT.

        That’s right – he didn’t invent the parts, or hand mold the body kit or anything like that – he simply bought pre-built/pre-tuned parts and slaps them on his car and the end result is” “hur dur compliments for expensive shit I bought and show off to make myself feel better about lacking any character”

        It’s the same thing with apple products (or anything new for that matter)

        But to stay on topic:

        The reason people eat this expensive apple shit is because they like to pay a lot for something because it makes them feel more important in the form of having something that not many people have, and feeling “unique”.

    4. Apple has always had a reputation for making a quality product, but they have also always been overpriced.
      I remember the ipod craze and when I started looking at MP3 players I was dumbfounded, I could see no reason to purchase an ipod other than to be able to say “look at me, I have an ipod” I found a unit that did everything the ipod did, handled more formats for auido and video, came with things like a car charger, a wall charger video output connection and cables and cost less than the same capacity pod, oh and the fact that it was made by a company that specialized in audio meant I could expect superior sound.
      As for their computers, I’ve often heard people say Macs were better because they didn’t get viruses or crash as much, which I usually laughed at since it was like saying “jail is great because there is less crime here”

    5. “jail is great because there is less crime here”
      That sentence right there is so stupid it negates any point you might have been trying to make.

    6. Intel Xeon x5770 (the Quad core 2.93GHz) costs roughly $1,300, whereas the 2.26 is only about $300.

      Yeah sure you’re paying $2,600 extra when it’s only worth $2,000 more, but that’s what happens when you buy a pre built computer.

      As for the RAM, yeah that’s extortionate. Same for the RAID card. And the HDDs. And the graphics. And the optical drive. And the monitors….

      …I’m sure there was a point to this somewhere.

      Anyway, love Apple products, hate Apple themselves. Because of shit like this.

    9. People like Macs.

      Get over it and worry about yourself.

    10. I like how the entire argument made by the original image uses Apple’s online store, which is notoriously overpriced, even for Apple.

      Any real Apple consumer knows to get their products through third-party retailers.

      • Any REAL apple consumer will shove any candy colored, “bleeding edge”, lighter than air device up their try-hard materialistic asses at the first chance they get – assuming it hasn’t sold out yet or is available for 4 times the price from some guy who just waited in line 5 days to sell it on ebay.

    11. After using a PC for 10 or so years, I now use an imac. My phone is an old nokia that can’t even send picture messages, and I don’t even own an ipod. I wanted an imac because I’m doing graphic design and do serious photoshopping and it’s a more stable operating system than windows for large programs. Not about the hardware or price, it’s about convenience, stability and ease of use (and for typical apple consumers, ‘piss easy so I don’t have to brain’).
      I haven’t seen a proper win/mac argument address this, lol. But I suppose it’s like people who’s hobbies are cars, you can bullshit on about how sweet the engine is, how much horsepower and torque it has, but doesn’t really relate to how good the car is to drive. People’s past times and hobbies these days are on their computer, so they get butthurt when someone tells them they’re doing it wrong or have better options they’re not embracing. Ignore macfags, ignore pcfags, do whatever you want. It’s just materialistic bullshit anyway, get a real problem lol.

      • Well, I’ve not experienced that many crashes on Win7 and Photoshop’s “stable”. I’ll be sincere and say I don’t get how it can “stable”, it works, it just does, I’m sure it works just as good on a Mac but when you double click something, it opens, you work inside it for a good couple of hours, save it, and close it, that’s pretty damn stable to me.

      • whenever a designer would tell me that macs are better for adobe suite i used to just say, “ok, i guess, you’re a designer and if your job is easier because of a mac then use a mac.”

        now this just seems dumb. maybe it runs better on a mac out of the box, but the point of the post was that you don’t have to spend all that money just to use the mac os on an inferior machine.

        designers are just too lazy to learn how to do this stuff themselves. if that’s worth the extra $ then so be it, but don’t tell me you can do a better job on a mac.

    12. Fanboys are morons. Feel free to attribute that to whichever side you don’t support… it will mean about as much either way.
