    Re: Mac vs PC

    i gotta proper PC (as in built not bought) 7 years ago... no probelms, runs fast and fine still.

    end of the day, cheap shitty lap tops that seem to be en vogue at the moment are giving PC's a bad name as the components have high spec numbers but shoddy quality so cause the problems that mac users love to highlight... but now apple are doing so well, thee production quality has gone down but the prices remain the same... thing i don't like about macs is apple and mac users are massivly snobby about how great there macs are!

    Re: Mac vs PC

    i don't know shit about computers really but i got a sony vaio 3 years ago and apart from the time i had to reinstall windows and lost 10 gb of amazing european porn/20gb of samples loops/2 years worth of fruity looping....... i've had no trouble.

    in all fairness it was full of virus' and as i know shit about lookin after them i had let it mess itself up.

    i reinstalled windows, got a full version of avg running, keep everything tidy on it now and its fast and so far reliable. runs like a new Mercedes.

    Re: Mac vs PC

    Windows fucks up more often but when it does it's easier to troubleshoot and fix. Macs fuck up less often but when they do I usually have absolutely no clue how to fix it. Also I prefer the freedom of windows.. so many more programs compatible.

    Ideally i'd like a mac aswell as my windows laptop to do editing tasks on and dabble in music production!

    Yh man, thats what ive been planning on doing. nice big screeen. doesnt even need a computer box thing cus its built into the screen. just looks awesome.

    but the reason i made this thread is cus my mate on msn is saying stuff like "naaa what is the point spending that much money on it. they really aint what there worth." and that i should just get a good pc.

    i really wanna use logic, cus im comftable with its basics and have learnt quite a bit of tricks and things via youtube vids. so i told him that, and now hes like "you might aswell jus get cubase. its just as good if not better." but i feel comftable with logic.

    ive looked forward to buying one quite some time, but ive always felt bad about the cost of a imac. and now its like drowning on me that i shouldnt buy one.

    so thats my problems. is a mac worth it? is it REALLY better with music and creative production? hmmmmm

    Re: Mac vs PC

    Unless you have been walking around with your eyes closed, and your head encased in a block of concrete, with a blindfold tied round it, in the dark - unless you have been doing that, you surely can't have failed to notice the current Apple Macintosh campaign starring David Mitchell and Robert Webb, which has taken over magazines, newspapers and the internet in a series of brutal coordinated attacks aimed at causing massive loss of resistance. While I don't have anything against shameless promotion per se (after all, within these very brackets I'm promoting my own BBC4 show, which starts tonight at 10pm), there is something infuriating about this particular blitz. In the ads, Webb plays a Mac while Mitchell adopts the mantle of a PC. We know this because they say so right at the start of the ad.

    "Hello, I'm a Mac," says Webb.

    "And I'm a PC," adds Mitchell.

    They then perform a small comic vignette aimed at highlighting the differences between the two computers. So in one, the PC has a "nasty virus" that makes him sneeze like a plague victim; in another, he keeps freezing up and having to reboot. This is a subtle way of saying PCs are unreliable. Mitchell, incidentally, is wearing a nerdy, conservative suit throughout, while Webb is dressed in laid-back contemporary casual wear. This is a subtle way of saying Macs are cool.

    The ads are adapted from a near-identical American campaign - the only difference is the use of Mitchell and Webb. They are a logical choice in one sense (everyone likes them), but a curious choice in another, since they are best known for the television series Peep Show - probably the best sitcom of the past five years - in which Mitchell plays a repressed, neurotic underdog, and Webb plays a selfish, self-regarding poseur. So when you see the ads, you think, "PCs are a bit rubbish yet ultimately lovable, whereas Macs are just smug, preening tossers." In other words, it is a devastatingly accurate campaign.

    I hate Macs. I have always hated Macs. I hate people who use Macs. I even hate people who don't use Macs but sometimes wish they did. Macs are glorified Fisher-Price activity centres for adults; computers for scaredy cats too nervous to learn how proper computers work; computers for people who earnestly believe in feng shui.

    PCs are the ramshackle computers of the people. You can build your own from scratch, then customise it into oblivion. Sometimes you have to slap it to make it work properly, just like the Tardis (Doctor Who, incidentally, would definitely use a PC). PCs have charm; Macs ooze pretension. When I sit down to use a Mac, the first thing I think is, "I hate Macs", and then I think, "Why has this rubbish aspirational ornament only got one mouse button?" Losing that second mouse button feels like losing a limb. If the ads were really honest, Webb would be standing there with one arm, struggling to open a packet of peanuts while Mitchell effortlessly tore his apart with both hands. But then, if the ads were really honest, Webb would be dressed in unbelievably po-faced avant-garde clothing with a gigantic glowing apple on his back. And instead of conducting a proper conversation, he would be repeatedly congratulating himself for looking so cool, and banging on about how he was going to use his new laptop to write a novel, without ever getting round to doing it, like a mediocre idiot.

    Cue 10 years of nasal bleating from Mac-likers who profess to like Macs not because they are fashionable, but because "they are just better". Mac owners often sneer that kind of defence back at you when you mock their silly, posturing contraptions, because in doing so, you have inadvertently put your finger on the dark fear haunting their feeble, quivering soul - that in some sense, they are a superficial semi-person assembled from packaging; an infinitely sad, second-rate replicant who doesn't really know what they are doing here, but feels vaguely significant and creative each time they gaze at their sleek designer machine. And the more deftly constructed and wittily argued their defence, the more terrified and wounded they secretly are.

    Aside from crowing about sartorial differences, the adverts also make a big deal about PCs being associated with "work stuff" (Boo! Offices! Boo!), as opposed to Macs, which are apparently better at "fun stuff". How insecure is that? And how inaccurate? Better at "fun stuff", my arse. The only way to have fun with a Mac is to poke its insufferable owner in the eye. For proof, stroll into any decent games shop and cast your eye over the exhaustive range of cutting-edge computer games available exclusively for the PC, then compare that with the sort of rubbish you get on the Mac. Myst, the most pompous and boring videogame of all time, a plodding, dismal "adventure" in which you wandered around solving tedious puzzles in a rubbish magic kingdom apparently modelled on pretentious album covers, originated on the Mac in 1993. That same year, the first shoot-'em-up game, Doom, was released on the PC. This tells you all you will ever need to know about the Mac's relationship with "fun".

    Ultimately the campaign's biggest flaw is that it perpetuates the notion that consumers somehow "define themselves" with the technology they choose. If you truly believe you need to pick a mobile phone that "says something" about your personality, don't bother. You don't have a personality. A mental illness, maybe - but not a personality. Of course, that hasn't stopped me slagging off Mac owners, with a series of sweeping generalisations, for the past 900 words, but that is what the ads do to PCs. Besides, that's what we PC owners are like - unreliable, idiosyncratic and gleefully unfair. And if you'll excuse me now, I feel an unexpected crash coming...

    Re: Mac vs PC

    i am a big fan of hating apple. overpriced wank.

    if you arnt a complete fucktard windows is fine, its just that about 95% of the computer market share is windows so there are plenty of fucktards in that group to fuck it up and make it look bad.

    also did anyone see that thing about snow leopard deleting everyones stuff? nice work apple, thoroughly testing for glitches before releasing a new OS
