If this came out bad, give me a break, I'm trying to get ready to go out tonight... I have a serious question for all of us "Mac People", as we so often get refered to as. I really, really want to know what it all boils down to in regards to WHY we all choose to support Apple. I've heard everything from people saying that they are "more creative" on a mac, that everything "just works" on a mac, to people trying to sell the idea that 1GHz G4's are faster than 2GHz P4's(somehow everyone leaves out AMD). I will admit that when it comes to Macs, I'm a relative newbie. My first Mac was the Rev.A iMac when it debuted. I will also admit that I chose it due to the fact that it looked so damn cool. I knew nothing about Macs except the fact that I used to use them at school. After about 4 years with the same computer(I added 4MB of VRAM, and 128MB of RAM), I finally went out and upgraded to a Dual 1GHz G4. All is well and good, but I get a ton of crap from ALL of my PC using friends. Only one person I know is also a Mac user. Everyone else tells me I wasted my money, and for the price of my mac (around $4,000... had to get the 17"LCD), I could have one hell of a PC system. All of this IS true.... I COULD get one hell of a PC for that amount of cash, but something inside of me wouldn't let me do it. I HAD to get the G4. I told myself that for the price, I'm getting a top of the line "super computer". One that had the ability to burn DVDs no less! What PC could do that? All of them now, thats how many. And now, after about 3 months, Apple is bringing out NEW G4s. With DDR RAM, something my PC friends have had nearly since it's arrival. I simply can't change out my motherboard to take advantage of this new RAM, I'd have to buy a whole new computer for this. And to have my computer become obsolete 3 months after its arrival is pretty bad. Don't get me wrong, this G4 will be my main computer for another 4 years or so, but i can't help feeling a little let down knowing Apple COULD have thrown in DDR RAM when they had the chance. It's the little things like this that make me wonder why I still use a Mac. Now comes your part friends. I need reassurance. I need reasons. I need GOOD reasons WHY all of us keep buying Macs. Thanks for letting me rant, I never get the chance to say what's on my mind to my PC friends. Styles. Out.
