    I was woundering if anyone can creat a nice come back for that, I came up with...
    But not 100% with it, as some thing are exagerated, and I would like everything to be 100% true, and well worded.

    If you going to try and say Mac are better at gaming then PC, sorry but you wrong IMO. XP has more games simply put.. as for boot camp.. its not on high end macs(not on the PowerMac yet). Mac the hardware, it being able to boot in OS X, XP and Linux is nice but gamer like the upgrade side of PC hardware.

    But really i have a friend who uses the IIG in the Mac Mini(on a Dell laptop) to game and its fine, so the MacBook Pro and iMac should be fine.


    Link to that forum...also when your debating are you talking about Mac OS X the software or Mac the hardware?

    People who say PC are better then macs and the reason is that PCs can play games. ANNOYS me so much. YOu have no idea, me and my friend have had a debate about macs fro the past year. I'll belike, mac came out with such and such, and hell belike macs suck, and then we start the debate again, its been on going.

    Just do like I do. Tell everyone who doesn't know any better that Mac's suck ass. Then, see how they respond. If you get:

    "Hell yeah, they do! There's not even a Start menu!" - These people should be shot. They are in no way ready to switch to Mac, and are incapable of understanding the benefits of OS X over XP regardless of how plain and simple you put it to them.

    "Um, wait a tick. Didn't I see you with an Apple computer the other day?" - This just warrants a blank stare in their direction until they realize that you weren't being serious. At this point, the questions should pour in about why you didn't go on like most Mac users and try and make a switcher out of them.

    But don't they run better than PC's? And crash a lot less? And are built with higher quality hardware? And aren't they more or less immune to viruses and all that crap that Windows user's get? And..." - Just smile and nod, then direct them to the nearest Apple Store. They are ripe. :)


    I just find that it's easier not to waste my breath on some imbecile who can't wrap his thick skull around so much as the simple fact that just because Mac's are easier to use and require less user configuration to get the same job done doesn't mean they are for morons. It's called working smart, not working hard. Some just aren't ready to think for themselves, I guess. :rolleyes:

    LoL, yes yes, he is teh suck.

    Forget him. Macs game fine. You wouldn't get a gaming-optimized Mac because that would be impossible, but you can get a Mac that's great for gaming.

    And yes, you can make upgrades to the processors, including the Intel iMacs (I and Mini (I believe). You can't do CPU upgrades on a MacBook or MBP, but you can on an iMac. You can't upgrade the graphics card, but the ATI X1600 with 256MB of vRAM available in the iMac is good for gaming.

    And once the Intel PowerMacs come out, then will he admit that a great Mac gaming machine can be built? I mean, that's what we're talking about when it comes to building gaming machines, after all. We shouldn't be talking about old technology unless your discussion was about upgrading old machines to become gaming machines. Then he'd have a point. A new Intel PowerMac/Mac Pro/Whatever would likely be as good as anything else out there.


    And Macs aren't built for idiots. Smart people who don't want to worry about virii use them. We chose a product that doesn't suck and doesn't have to be maintained as much. Sounds like the smart choice to me....

    "I didn’t buy my computer to pwn noobs at CS, I have a PC for that. I'm glad however you proved my point that PC users ONLY care about games. As 90% of your rant is about "Macs can't play games."

    People don't spend $2000 on an apple computer so that they can play pointless fictional games. They purchase them to get work done.

    Not only do we have boot camp, but also if that's not enough, you can use the virtualization parallels over boot camp if you wish. Which will play 100% of any windows game. And will run it better.

    Let's compare monitors for gaming. Our 30" > ANY windows based company monitor. They stretch their things out of proportion, so the windows, the tool bar everything is just stretched and blurry. On the ACD everything is 100% normal size and not out of proportion.

    The Mac is used to do PROFESSIONAL work. Perhaps you will learn that when you grow up. When you REALLY get into music and that type of industry, you will realize that you wish you had a Mac, not a machine to waste time playing games. I'm not saying games are always stupid. But I would NEVER by a computer that would play games, and not do pro work efficiently."

    DJMastaWes,

    You basically got the argument there. You can add that you dont judge a computer on how it will play games, but on how efficiently and easily it can help you perform your work or gain information.

    He came up with this


    The entire arguement was about how the kid could raise his fps for games. Hence completely nullifying most of your lame arguement.
    But I will continue on and critisize the rest of your post.


    If you had read my entire post instead of skimming the first couple of sentences, you would've realised that no mac that bootcamp is compatible with can run games anywhere close to as well as a PC made for gaming. The fact that the only apples that are compatible with bootcamp have either integrated or low-end graphics cards renders your claim false.


    LOL. All monitors are compatible with one another. They all use either DVI or VGA connections. There is no difference between an Apple monitor and a "windows" monitor with similar specs, besides the jacked up price of an apple for the name.

    When I grow up? Haven't you said in some other threads you are 14? Last time I checked, 14 years old isn't grown up and is barely even teenaged. I'm sure you are by no means professional nor doing professional work so you are basically just making that statement based on media. Null arguement from your position tbh.

    Anyways, a gaming rig is made for pure power. That same power that is advertised in "pro" computers for "pro" work. If you are that stupid to think that computer hardware is gaming/"pro" work/ casual, you completely have ruined any credibility you had. A computer with tons of power marketed for gaming can do "pro" work just as well as a similar computer marketed for "pro" work. They both have tons of processing and graphics processing power to be suitable for both situations.
    Basically: A computer that is made for gaming can easily run "pro" software extremely well

    I am not familiar with these programs because I don't care to edit media, but if they are compatible with PCs, then an equally powered PC run them just the same as your Mac. An equally priced PC will run it better since you get a lot more power for the money with a PC if you build it yourself.

    My previous statements provide a suitable rebuttal to this. Pretty much an equal powered PC will run the program exactly the same as long as you are not a ****ing ******* and know how to keep your computer clean of crap.

    The only true difference that causes such a difference in performance of PCs and Macs is that Macs are less prone to viruses due to the fact most viruses/spyware/adware are programmed to work with Windows and not OSX. Load up bootcamp and Windows, go on the internet unprotected, surf for porn, and you will find your beloved Mac is slow as the average idiot's unprotected PC.

    [quote/]Our OS LOOKS more professional then XP anyways. The blue and green start bar looks like a toy.[/quote]

    Purely opinion, null. Also since it is very easily to modify the interface of Windows, then your distaste is matched with equal lasiness to change it.


    Again, my previous statements provide a suitable rebuttal for this too. Also, I should mention that Acer is generally a poor company to being with. They cut corners when making components and when they build computers. Your dad ****ed up by buying the computer in the first place. He should've done his research and found that Acer makes terrible quality products.

    Look, lets just end this thread now and save yourself the embarrassment. He'll win this argument because he is mostly right.

    If you want to argue that Macs can't be gaming machines, then you do have an argument, but only after the new Intel Mac pro desktop towers are released. Until then, don't embarrass yourself. I tried to say this last time.

    The only time he's wrong is when he stops talking about performance and goes on about other things, which isn't often, nor is it important. I mean, he talks about people not putting in enough effort into changing the interface for WinXP if they don't like it. Why should I? OSX is given to you as a good product, while WinXP has to be changed. A lot.

    So pointless to argue Mac vs. PC. You're always going to see it your way, he's always going to see it his way.

    PC's are unquestionably better at running viruses and spyware than macs. I wish our computers were good enough to do that.

    I use my Mac to make money.
    I use my PC to play games.

    A pithy yet accurate response; the little troll deserves no more.
