    says it all, really. Macs are just fashion icons. I'll admit, they do look quite nice, but there are some damn sexy pc cases.

    I do, actually. HP make some damn good pcs, and their laptops are among the finest.

    And, of course, they've moved into the gaming sector now with Voodoo, and the Blackbird.

    that case is sex, even if the actual pc is a ripoff.

    What I meant to say was:

    Given HP's quality, you would think the Compaq computers would be better than they are now

    HP pwns Compaq both before and after the merger. The only thing worse than a Compaq is an Acer. The only thing better than an HP is a custom built PC or top of the line Mac.

    I'm not being pompous, I'm just offering sound advice, based on actual experience. I've used PCs for over a decade and have always encountered problems, problems which have been significantly reduced since I got a Mac.

    And I didn't get my Mac because it's stylish. It was forced upon me by my school. And in retrospect I'm glad they did.

    Macs are overpriced garbage.

    The commercials for them are also nauseating. Nothing makes me want to buy a product more than having my intelligence insulted for 45 seconds.

    I hate how Mac users act like their systems are just as affordable as PCs, when in actuality they cost several hundred dollars more. Not everyone can shell out $2K for a iBook, or whatever. The difference gets even more ridiculous when looking at desktops. Even if I were to agree that they were better (which I don't) I still could not afford one. Same with an iPhone. I'll take my free phone with the contract; I can't pay $300+ for a phone, regardless of what it does.

    I was forced to use shitty Apple computers all through primary school and junior high. Never again will I use one.

    I am currently building my own PC with Intel Core 2 Quad . Which will give me some 10GHz of CPU power. I would seriuosly like to see any Mac stand up to that.

    fucking badass. What will you do with all that?

    Same here. Crashed every ten minutes
    I have an Acer monitor. Great for the price. Except that it takes 5 seconds to turn on because it insists on displaying the Acer logo, as if it wasn't already on the monitor. Sounds trivial, but it bugs me.

    Depends on the Acer. Their laptops are SHIT but their desktops are OK.
