Ok we know this debate right? Mac vs. PC owners and both thinking they have the ultimate machine. Well I hate it when the Mac owners all of a sudden impale you with their opinion on purchasing choice when I have an issue with my PC.
"Just buy a Mac, I never have gotten a virus"
"Just buy a Mac, mine hasn't crashed ever"
Ok well first of all your Mac inst invincible because I know for damn sure you get the swirly ball of death and not to mention the Kernel Panic which means your beloved machine crashed.

I rarely get the Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) and that's usually because I am using my computer for something it's not supposed to do. This is uncommon with your Mac because most of you don't dare venture into modifying or upgrading your Mac, simply because it's not made to. No it's made to last a longer time than a PC but it costs twice or three times as much!

So to those who say "Just buy a Mac" I say do the math!! Look I have a pretty decent machine for $650 with an aftermarket graphics card and all the things I need to do video editing and gaming (more on this later). Why the hell would I spend over $2,500 on a comparable machine? I could stockpile spare PC's for when I ever have one crash for that money and for what? A little security of not crashing? Besides at the rate Apple produces new models for it's "followers" (see: cult) they subliminally make you buy a new computer when the Mac you have is built to last.
Games? Oh if you're a Mac owner, you are limited to the latest and greatest games out there because you're such a small market! I am a gamer like many other people out there, so buying a Mac would literally be for Microsoft Office, internet use, and possibly video editing. Again, tell me the cost-benefit of buying a Mac over a fully functional and easily upgradable PC?
Mac's are the Lexus' of the computer world. Ever look at a new Lexus under the hood? You can't see the engine because the people at Lexus decided to clean it up with plastic nonetheless. Macs are the same way, dressed up all nice so people can have a fashion statement rather than a raw machine.
