A Mac is a personal computer, not a PC. The term PC was coined and trademarked as the actual name for an early IBM computer. Saying IBM PC was the same as saying Dell Inspiron. That led to the market defining anything running IBM's architecture a PC, since most computers aside from Macs use it or its derivative. So no, a Mac is not a PC because a PC is defined as something with a specific hardware architecture. It's a personal computer and yes there is a difference.

People use a mac to refer to a Macintosh. People don't use a win to refer to a windows computer. Because so many different brands make PC's, unlike just Apple that makes macs, people refer to windows computers as PCs. It doesnt matter which brand made the PC (Acer, Asus, Alienware, Dell, etc.) its better than a mac.

"People don't use a win to refer to a windows computer."
"People don't use a win"

PC stands for Personal computer, which does include the Macintosh.

OS X is a BSD Unix based operating system with a GUI which is more user friendly than Windows for many users. The OS allows for permissions based accounts, and has better access controls to limit the spread of malicious software (yes, there are viruses and proof of concepts which target Apple software), and protects the system folder from write actions unless a user has magical fairy princessistrative privileges.

The ease of use is often cited as a primary reason for educational institutions and art related business to defer to Apples.

You're a faggot.

I believe what I said was true. People DON'T use "win" to refer to windows. The 'a' was merely a typo. Perhaps I had a broken keyboard? Regardless, PC does stand for Personal Computer, but that doesn't mean people go around saying "Look at my new PC!" When they have a Macbook Air.

Furthermore, most "educational institutions" use Windows, rather than mac, due to the fact that learning how to use a mac doesn't actually teach you how to "use" a computer. Programmers and engineers alike prefer Windows over Mac any day. That's why in the important labs and factories, they don't rely on the ****** apple OS. Hospitals now have gone far enough to use Apple instituted iPads, and spend the effort converting them to Windows OS because of the limitations of the Apple OS.

Also, this is from knowledge that I have, not googling "PC" and "OS X"

I don't make mistakes.

Typo =/= Mistake.

And this is why we call Computers with Linux, Linxs?

"Let’s remember, however, that “PC” means “personal computer”. Since when did the word “PC” mean a computer running Windows? Is a computer running Linux not a PC either? Or are we supposed to think that Windows and Linux powered machines are PC’s while a system running OS X stands apart as a different beast?"

"Macs Are PCs, Dammit!"

" Popular alternatives to Microsoft's Windows operating systems include Apple's Mac OS X."

Hardware =/= Software
And if I'm the faggot, then why're you the one thumbing me down when we're having a discussion like a nut less 14 year old? Which actually would explain why you're so knowledgeable on some subjects, and have such a giant superiority complex, being adopted most be hard :(

It's okay Fagtanus, I'm just glad that I'm here so that I can educate you, and show you the right path for you to take on your way to becoming a man where your foster father have failed <3 Happy new year you lovely waste of oxygen ! :3

And to anyone seeing this, you're a butthurt tool.

Referring to adoption. I lol'd. Very sad that you have to resent to petty insults. Do you want me to be on par with you? Want me to sink to your level, telling you about how I was captain of my school lacrosse team through high school, how I double majored in Chemical and Computer Engineering at UC Davis, and how I made more in the first year out of college then you ever wiil in any year your entire life?

No. Because then I look like an idiot, AKA you. Checkmate faggot. Go home

Coming from the guy hopelessly following me looking for mistakes I have made

>2/10 for making me reply.

All what I said is true. I don't need to look at the sources you need to google because you don't know anything about this. A mac may be a PC, but when people refer to Macs, they refer to Apple computers running a Mac OS. When they refer to a PC, 95% of the time they are referring to a computer like Acer, Asus, Alienware, Dell, etc. that is running Windows.

I already told you, my keyboard was broken ;)

Conclusion: You're some middleschooler that uses the internet for retrieving some kind of sense of superiority for just a little while in your pathetic existence, you're at the same level as those 15 year old kids that "Likes" the Anonymous page on Facebook.

You made a mistake kid, face it.

Holy **** you are really getting into this. I am suprised how seriously you are taking it.

Big talk coming from the retard who used a SATIRE post as his source, and then said "Ignore the Satire"

You still think you're so "Cleaver"?

Still need pictures to make yourself feel important?

****** please. What we both said remains true. "WHEN PEOPLE REFER TO MACS, THEY REFER TO AN APPLE COMPUTER RUNNING A MAC OS" I can not make this more painfully clear. I don't give a **** if its right or not. You're like an autistic asspie who walks around yelling at people on the street for ending a sentence with a preposition. The **** is wrong with you?

When someone says "PCs are better than a Mac" You know exactly what they are talking about. If you seriously don't, and have to get all butthurt that a Mac is technically a PC, then you are more autistic than I thought. Grow the **** up, go outside, stop being retarded.

In society (You know, where normal people live) if someone says, "I prefer PC to mac" they are talking about non-apple products, probably one made by Dell, etc. that is running some form of Windows. When they say Linux, its usually the same thing, just running Linux OS. When they say Mac, they usually mean an apple computer running an apple OS. Because who the **** wants to install that ****** OS on anything else? And if you DID know enough about computers to install a different OS on your computer, THEN you would probably use appropriate terms, let alone not arguing about it on the internet.

Technically when I typed that status my keyboard actually was broken. I meant it as a joke, but it's technically true... Although you're autistic and have to have everything your way, that's the truth.

Want me to use a picture to make you feel better?

>You made a mistake kid, face it.
You have let this go on for hours to make yourself feel cool, because you're the dumbass who thought you could ignore satire, because you ****** up with your sources. This is the internet. Funnyjunk for that matter, no one gives a **** how good you are at looking on google. When you're in school (Hows freshman year going for you?) yes you use sources. When you're out of college, and in a job, you use the technology and knowledge you KNOW. You don't google how to make gas from a ******* tree you stupid ****.

>Challenge: Won.
Maybe daddy will love you now.

Hahaha, I actually laughed at that.

But again, just summarizing, what I said was true, while what you said was true. We were both too caught up to realize.

You're saying in essence, a mac is a PC. Which is true.

I'm saying, people use the term (At least 99% of society, maybe different from wherever you're from) "Mac" to refer to an apple computer running Mac OS, while people use the term PC to refer to a windows computer. That's it. Whether its technically correct or not is actually beside the point. I never said a Mac WASN'T a PC, I don't know why you think I said that, because that's what you're arguing for

"People don't use a win"
That was intended, since people DO use a term "Mac" to refer to macintosh.

*most marketed windows pc's

dont forget about the people who manage to build a machine that is alot more powerful than marketed imacs, and macbooks, but $1000 dollars cheaper.

i do like mac though, and putting bootcamp on, so me and my friends can play lan.

Exactly, I forget to mention this in my comment. I have never bought a factory PC. I've always custom built them. I custom built mine for 500$, and I have yet to play a game that gave me graphical errors, or framerate issues
