PC users like PCs. They enjoy using them, building them, tweaking them. Some may even develop a special liking for a certain machine. Mac users on the other hand, love Macs. We feel a connection to every peice of hardware and software. It speaks to us, becomes a part of us. Our own machines become our sidekicks, our best friends. Other machines are instant friends. This fact is a testement to the way Apple works as a company, and the kind of products they make. Apple focuses on us, the user. Everything is tweaked and tested and re-designed until it is truly a beautiful peice of art. From the ease of use of OS X, to the “heart beat” every machine shows when it sleeps, Macs are more human than PCs can ever be. It is our dedication to our machines, and Apples dedication to providing quality products that makes this relationship work. Many of a mac lovers worst and best moments involve their machines. Be it a first experiance with your mac, or the horrible sight of seeing your PowerBook drop to the ground, macs allways have a special place in our hearts. This love drives us, and drives this blog. It is a huge part of out lives, and we couldn’t ask for anything more.

  1. I cannot agree more. Ever since I switched from PC to Mac, I’ve never looked back! It’s already been 5 years… What can I say, I love my Mac!

  2. I’m a recent convert from PCs to Macs. Whenever I can, I now use my PowerBook in preference to my desktop PC. The joy I derive from just opening my PowerBook far exceeds any joy I have ever had from the building, tweeking, and use of a PC, whether it be running either a Windows or Linux variant. The PC will stay, but will probably be relegated to just being a “games” machine… for everything else, I’m now a Mac user through, and through.

  3. I am a recent convert as well. I actually bought my first Mac (Powerbook) this past weekend! So as of today I have been a Mac owner for 4 days and I am loving it! I can’t believe it took me 2 years to get one. I stated thinking about purchasing a Mac 2 years ago.

    I have to say that I can see myself using a Mac as my primary computer. It is just so easy to use. And sooo pretty.

  4. I am a recen convert, and I will have to disagree with all of you. What can I say other than I really miss my PC. Macintosh is just soo… lame. Mac seriously sucks compaired to the PC because I can do SOOO much more with a PC, and PC’s are upgradable. I guess macs are for stupid people. I’m going back to PC as soon as possible.

    1. Do some research before you type! macs are very upgradable for smart, and stupid people. Only a idiot would post mac bashing on a mac board!

  5. I will have to agree with Brian all the way. Macintosh is just an inferior machine. I’ve had a macintosh for about a year now, and the thing can’t stop crashing. I’m big into video games, and macintosh is not good for video games. They shouldn’t call it an entertainment machine if it’s not as good for entertainment as windows based PC’s. I’d have to say, windows based machines are far more superior than un-upgradable macs. Plus, NO FLOPPY DRIVES? macs are inferior. I’m sorry folks. They just plain suck balls.

    1. “NO FLOPPY DRIVE” are you kidding me. They haven’t made floppy drives for a long time.

      Someone once told me something very cool: “the way you judge is the way you are” so you must suck balls, probably a lot.

      You are an idiot and Mac’s are far superior to the PC crap, especially WinDOZE Vista which is a total failure, even Lord Ballmer said so.

      If Mac’s suck then why is everyone running from there Vista PCs as fast as they can to Mac’s.

      Now go suck Brian’s balls and he will probably reciprocate.

  8. You’re talking about your Mac as if it’s a beloved your pet dog or something. I love my Macbook but neither my best moments involved it…

    Anyway to respond to Klein neither Dell nor HP PCs ship with floppy drives as standard anymore. The one thing I’ve used a floppy for in about the last eight years was to reinstall Windows XP on a SATA hard drive. Yes, you need a floppy (or a slipstreamed CD), a USB stick won’t do.

  9. My post will involve responding to quotes previously posted, and kicking the living shit out of them…

    Let’s begin with the blog. How much money did Apple pay you to write this? It is completely anti-intellectual* and cultist.

    “PC users like PCs. They enjoy using them, building them, tweaking them. Some may even develop a special liking for a certain machine. Mac users on the other hand, love Macs. We feel a connection to every peice of hardware and software. It speaks to us, becomes a part of us.”
    What exactly are you trying to prove, beside that fact that you have been completely brainwashed by the bouncing beachball? Guess what.. I love my PC. Wow, it is so shocking!! But… my case doesn’t match my GUI? How can you love something so disturbingly ugly.

    “Our own machines become our sidekicks, our best friends.”
    And who is calling PC users and PC gamers geeks? You fell in love with a computer. It is your best friend? Wow. I realize you are making a point of how much more alluring a Mac interface is, but please… relieve us sensible folks from your distasteful and elitist statements.

    “Apple focuses on us, the user. Everything is tweaked and tested and re-designed until it is truly a beautiful peice of art.”
    Again, how much are you getting paid? Really..

    “From the ease of use of OS X, to the “heart beat” every machine shows when it sleeps, Macs are more human than PCs can ever be.”
    You are humanizing a machine made of metal and bumps on a hdd! Again, this word choice and alluring qualities you state Macbooks have remind me of those of Mao Zedong’s “Little Red Book.”

    “Apples dedication to providing quality products that makes this relationship work.”
    Sorry to be cold, blunt, and even rude, but Apple, as well as every other big corporation, makes their products for profit. There is no special relationship… that is clearly just a marketing technique.

    “macs allways have a special place in our hearts. This love drives us, and drives this blog. It is a huge part of out lives, and we couldn’t ask for anything more.”
    You just made me barf on my keyboard. Thanks allot…

    And now the commenters…

    “Ever since I switched from PC to Mac, I’ve never looked back!”
    Ever since i went black, i never went back! (From family guy) Once you turn black, you go deaf! Sorry, i just had to post this…

    “I’m a recent convert from PCs to Macs”
    Choosing a brand of computer is hardly on the same level of importance that choosing a religion. How very geeky of you to attribute your mac in religious terms.

    “The PC will stay, but will probably be relegated to just being a “games” machine…”
    Key word here is -probably-. As like any other successful corporation, they will change to the peoples needs. Right now, it seems that vista has met those needs. I found no one who thinks that the vista aero style in explorer windows is uglier than the mac os x gui. and since pcs are more abundant, it is unlikely that most “make the switch” or “convert”, as you mac ‘worshipers’ like to say.

    “I can do SOOO much more with a PC”
    Brain is right. And only intelligent people like that idea. The 100 IQ majority will choose mac because they are “sooo pretty.” Mac gui is the opium of the masses…

    “I’m big into video games, and macintosh is not good for video games.” With the reply: “maybe you should put away the joystick and start living? i feel sorry for you guys. is that really your only form of entertainment? c’mon get a girlfriend.”
    What other argument would you expect from a mac user who constantly moves from fad to fad with his group of mainstream friends, listen to their mainstream 128kbps music on their itunes, constantly trying to find themselves. ever see those pot-smoking above-the-influence commercials. that guy holds the flag is _not_ you… ok, so, i am obnoxiously stereotyping you.. but you were sereotyping gamers.
    please, you cannot hide the fact that gaming is a form of entertainment that many are into… however deep. mac gui is more of a resource hog than windows will ever be because microsoft is smart enough to allow their users to tweak xp to highest performance.

    macs suck for gaming. windows can be tweaked. windows have an excessive amount of media players(that is music and video players) that have much better benchmarks than your pretty itunes. But everything on my computer MUST begin with an i!! i cannot take the individuality!

    a geek is much more individual than you can ever be. i am not talking about the anti-social, nerdy, wear-a-collared-shirt-to-school guy that society has brainwashed you to classify as a geek. i am talking about the highly intelligent, moderately social knowledge seeker who has a higher level of a thirst for knowledge and learning than you can ever obtain. (now i have cleverly generalize the object of my criticism in this paragraph in such a way that if you do take offense, ..well i think you know)

    To quote from a friend, “Macs slogan should be ‘Think differently by thinking just like us!'”

    “what does it matter anyway, we all die at the end of the day…”
    then why live for tomorrow?
