I'm not really in to the whole Mac vs Pc thing. Could someone give me some pros and cons for Mac? Also i was wondering, everybody with a mac says that it's better for everything but gaming. Is there any truth in this?   
I have tried the Mac, but i didn't like it at all.    
Ps. Here's a gif for your time

I own a mac computer and all i can tell is that i like it better than PC because i've just simply got used to Mac. There are no viruses that could infect Macs. Well, there are of course a few but not that many they would be a problem enough to buy a virus protection software. There is more limited selection in what comes to softwares. I like this, it's easy to use for daily purposes like taking notes, checking facebook, email and FUNNYJUNK. iLove Mac :)

lol at "no viruses that could infect Macs" few days ago apple discovered that 600.000 Macs were infected.

I really suggest you to take some reading comprehension courses.

Have you heard of the black hole virus? It's as bad as the name sounds, I had a Mac and downloaded it (It acted as a flash updater) and it completely ****** it up. I've now had a windows gaming computer for a year now, no virus protector at all, and it's still fast as **** . (I've never even had a problem with a virus on this one.

Well, you had a terribly bad luck because that version of trojan is really REALLY EXTREMELY rare. If I would ever get a virus on my Mac i would definetly go to the Apple store i bought this from and tell them to fix it or get me a new one (of course to restore the **** on my hard drive) Mac still is really easy to use for anything that happens on a daily basis.

Honestly, having both Mac and PC, I think that the PC is easier to use, a better physical feel and a better OS feel. Things like command prompt are easier to use then the Mac's terminal. From sophisticated applications like that, down to basic applications like web browsers, Windows computers have a more user-friendly interface, hands down.

Uh-oh... Well, that's like your opinion and **** ...

Have you used a Windows 7 computer, before?
If not, I recommend installing it in bootcamp and trying it for a few weeks, just to see how it feels.
User avatar #95 to #90 - finnjevel (04/13/2012) [-]
Yeah, we have win7 computers in my school and i like them too. They are just not as nice to use as macs, tho.
User avatar #98 to #95 - Cooey (04/13/2012) [-]
How so? If you don't mind me asking.
In my opinion, the school edition of windows 7 is crap, they block a lot of features that make it easier to use.
User avatar #106 to #98 - finnjevel (04/13/2012) [-]
Nope. Here the laws let us have win7 home edition. :D
User avatar #110 to #106 - Cooey (04/13/2012) [-]
But schools still block a lot of things, it doesn't really matter what type of windows you use.

list of mac viruses
You need to login to view this link
also i think macs and pcs are susceptible to the same viruses provided that they attack on a deeper level than say the os

also yeah macs are easier to use but i enjoy videogames and such
User avatar #82 to #73 - finnjevel (04/13/2012) [-]
I enjoy videogames too but if you like playing them why don't you just buy a console? The graphics are usually much better, you don't have to worry about installation and such and you can use the consoles for many more things than just playing your crappy old Dead Island.

>better graphics

Sorry but no.

I'm sorry, I don't mean to come off as jerkish, but if you're telling him to buy a Mac AND a Gaming console, you're insane. I don't know which Mac computer you have, so I'll be doing this based off the cheapest iMac on Apple's site.

It currently costs $1199, thats with some pretty decent specs and what not and all that fancy Apple Software it comes with. Then you suggest getting a console, I'll be using PS3 as you said you have that in another comment. Current pricing for just the PS3 (160GB) $249. So, in total, he would have to spend $1448 for the Mac and PS3.

A better plan would be just to buy a PC, with the same specs as the iMac (as they're nothing to sneeze at) for a cheaper price. Also, PC's tend to have better graphics that consoles, mind you thats just my experience.

Again, not bashing Macs, as they do many things right, and may be simpler, but thats not the point here. My point is that suggesting to get a Mac then saying to buying a console for gaming isn't the most efficient plan.

I have a Macbook Pro that has 500gb and a "13 screen. It cost me 1099€ which is a little more than $1200. I have also bought a PS3 slim that cost me like 300€ or so. We have a high income and thus do't need to worry about that too much. It is of course more affordable and easier to have them combined. Sorry if that didn't make any sense. I'm pretty stoned right now.

Edit; Sorry about the insane part, that was rude of me.
User avatar #96 to #82 - bobtheunbeatable (04/13/2012) [-]
firstly pc graphics (provided you have a semi-decent video card) easily beat out ps3/360 , the online services (steam and the like) are massively better and there is a significantly larger roster of games largely because of indie studios that don't/can't go into consoles and the MMORPGs there is of course modding as well as the fact you can use a mouse and keyboard on a pc.

don't get me wrong i'm not hating on consoles i do in fact have a ps3 which i use mostly for playing co-op stuff with friends

Macs dont have the same percentage of users as a pc therefore does not have same same ammount of asshole writing virii for them

for the reasons you use it though....it's plenty good enough
User avatar #75 to #68 - finnjevel (04/13/2012) [-]
Apple products and softwares compatible for Mac are kind of al linked together so making a virus that would use an existing code is nearly impossible due to the software and products being in a closed circle. Mac developers are even hiring hackers to test their OS and in case they found out a way, they'll patch it.

No viruses? *cough* flashback *cough*
User avatar #65 to #64 - finnjevel (04/13/2012) [-]
Yes. I know. And that's why i said "there are of course a few". How about ILOVEYOU, code red, bit addict, all the different trojans etc etc. Oh, I don't know. I have a Mac.

Oh, what did you say? I can't hear you, too busy playing Battlefield 3.
User avatar #63 to #62 - finnjevel (04/13/2012) [-]
Yea, me too. ON MY PS3.
User avatar #53 to #52 - aussiepridevil (04/13/2012) [-]
the only benefit for mac's , they're easy too use and the OS makes doing one specific job simple, I.E. if you proffesionally edited photographs or live mixed music or recorded, a mac would be for you, using it for anything but that is a terrible idea.

so unless you wan't work related computer stay away from macs

I'm not planning on buying a Mac, i love the PC. It's just that my friend has a Mac and is always saying how good it is. When i try to disagree with him i have no solid points to come with. Thanks for replying anyway
User avatar #112 to #55 - Timmietim (04/13/2012) [-]
You know that if you are good with computers you can build a homebuild pc and put MacOS on it ,
You pay the price of a mac mini with the performance of a mac pro :D
You can dual boot it so you can choose between windows and macos at start i think.
#132 to #112 - kivrank (04/13/2012) [-]
I never said im any good with computers, I just try to enjoy them as much as possible. As long as my computer works for what i want to do with it, i won't change it
User avatar #134 to #132 - Timmietim (04/13/2012) [-]
Ah well , Just a suggestion :D
