Are You A Mac Or A PC?

Tuesday, July 7, 2009

You've all seen Apple's ingenious (and sensationalistic) mini-franchise of "Mac vs. PC" commercials, right? You know, the ones in which the cool, hip Mac is pitted against the awkward, venerable Commodore 64 masquerading as a PC in very carefully selected situations. If you've been living under a rock for the past 6 months and somehow managed to miss the series, then check the YouTube clip at the beginning of this post.

Since the emergence of the first iPod in 2001, Apple has done a good job of making people join the cult and drink the Kool-Aid. Apple lover's will fight to the death to prove that their MacBook or iPhone is better than it's non-Apple counterparts. I mean straight up in the pit with Spartacus type duals.

Case-in-point, I bought a new laptop last week. It's a HP Pavilion dv7, not a Mac. I mentioned this on Twitter and was accosted by several Mac users (read: like two followers who were really just poking fun) with replies calling me a boring, predictable old man. The last part is true. They really did call me boring and predicable and old.

Hmph!

I have to admit that I honestly do think I'm a Mac. Sadly my HSBC checking account isn't Ms. Cleo; it doesn't see that in the cards.

Besides Macs are just too damn rich for my blood right now. Paying thousands of dollars for a computer in 2009 is sooo not the biz. For what? A little bit of fun. I'll stay my boring ass right with this HP.

But I would like to know which brand you all are: Macs or PCs. I also wanna know if money was no object if you'd stick with your choice. If you just don't give a shit, then feel free to tell me that, too.

My PC hasn't done anything to hurt me. Macs are cute and dont get viruses (because apparently they are set up LIKE viruses) but you gotta be slightly coined to purchase one. I tend to forget that they dont have a right click button tho..

I have a HP Pavilion, too. Only thing I like about Mac: Garageband.

I'm a Mac, on a PC budget. But I refuse to buy another PC. I'm holding out for the Mac.

I HAVE THE SAME EXACT HP PAVILION YOU HAVE MUSE! SAME EXACT MODEL. ITS COOL NEVER GAVE ME ANY REAL PROBLEMS BESIDES WINDOWS VISTA..NOW I HATE THIS SHIT BUT OTHER THAN THAT ITS BEEN GOOD TO ME AND THESE MACS JUST COST SO DAMN MUCH. UGH!

I HEARD THEY DONT GET VIRUSES BECAUSE MOST VIRUSES ARE MADE FOR WINDOWS PROGRAMS AND OPERATING SYSTEM.
