Everyday, people around me, friends and random people deem Macs as overpriced junks. Not to mention, the unfriendly cyberspace with little kids flaunting how big a gun they have by having beef with Macs. So, I want to ask them if they have ever become disappointed with a Mac they bought. Probably not, many of them don't even have the money to afford one. To me, they are just comforting themselves by hating Macs. This is an example. The other day, I brought my Mac to school for a presentation. My group and I were in the cafeteria, and some random person says, "Macs suck, my PC is better." Sure, your PC can be better, but I doubt Powerpoint is better than Keynote. The point is, I use a Mac because it suits my needs, and there is no need for expressing some provoking statement (probably out of jealously). Some time this week, I was browsing a forum where senior high school students heading to college and university ask for help. Someone asked whether to buy a PC or Mac for college. Obviously, being an Apple fanboy as I am (I have valid reasons for being one, though), I recommended him/her to go with a Mac. The reasons are obvious: quality, customer support, and OS X Leopard just to name a few. Then, some uneducated people started to claim that Apple products are overpriced and worthless, and you can buy a PC that's half the price of a Mac. So, I go on with an example with the MBP, saying that it is not possible to buy a PC that is made out of aluminium, and equipped with 9600m gt and 9400m, LED screen, 4gb DDR3 memory, 2.53 GHz Penryn (is it Penryn?) processor, multi-touch trackpad and a 7-hour battery for $1000. Then the person goes on saying that he/she bought a laptop with a 512mb dedicated GPU and 2.0GHz AMD processor for $750US, compared to a Blackbook at $1400US one year ago. That gave me a good laugh. First of all, it's not half the price of the said Mac, and that was one year ago. Let alone, is it compare two laptops with the same hardware--it's like comparing an apple and an orange. I'm not showing off when I carry around a Mac, or am I trying to become an elitist by having one. I love and use Macs because they just work, and don't give me a load of BS (PCs with Windoze).
