I am so sick of stupid people who when ever they see a mac its automatically and iMac and it sucks.. So many people I know just call every mac an iMac and thinks it sucks but really they know nothing. I know its a small thing to rant about but it just gets on my nerves.

oh i hear ya mate

i HATE it!!!

my windows friend says that macs are acceptional..but the only reason he isnt going to get is because the OS is "shyte".

he doesnt understand.
he has only used it for, what. a matter of minutes. he wont accept that its the most awsome OS, and i know, because i have used all osx & xp & vista.

i hate it how non computer people hu know nothing about computers acuse me of being gay for using a mac, and then my computer teacher laughing with them. i hate it!

its disgusting

and when i show my presentation on my mac, they are all amazed.
but then they go back to the insults, because its a mac.


sorry.
had to

Sitting on a rig somewhere
I remember getting the strange looks and comments when I going to convert to Macs. I kept talking with a few co-workers when I was considering buying myself a new laptop a year and a half ago. I was looking at Sony Viao and Dell XPS... then I took a look at Macs. Well, it was not long after I had decided on a Mac and just deciding which PB to get when one night I saw the MBP for order in January 06... that was it! :D Going back to talk with those same co-workers telling them of my decision, they gave me **** about Macs, the OS and all. One guy even pulling out the local free classified paper "The Echo" and said "look, there are Macs for sale, you don't see any Sony's for sale because they're better," haha. That same co worker also said that Macs looked "cheap." Basically, I guess he misunderstood the minimalist style Macs are famous for :rolleyes:

I'm quite happy to have insults flung at me about my mac use. The less morons using macs, the less future crap of the type that windows users have to put up with. I don't want an increase in market share followed by spyware and viruses.

I'm happy with mac being my little secret, even if the design does look like my little pony. So should you all!

(Joking, mac design is spectacular)

A guy in my class brought in his new Dell today and i could see what they were going for, but it looked nothing compared to a mac. I think "ugly" is a good word to describe it!:D
Also when I say I prefer macs they look at me scornfully and say "Oh they're really easy to use aren't they". As though that's a bad thing!
We might as well let them wallow in their ignorance ay?

I just hate the fact people think Macs suck because they have a less user base, My Mum is worried about switching because so many people keep telling her Macs aren't good but most of them haven't even used a Mac before. People are just so ignorant.

yea it really bugs me when people are ignorant.

but then i remember that we are the minority, we are supposed to be open to this sort of attack, we have to be strong so that others can also join us in our quest.

that is why MACS RULE!!!

I used to get a lot of negative remarks up until 6-7 years ago. Now lots of people seem to want one.

I´ve never pushed the Mac onto people through conversation (I rather leave it at "I´m using a Mac"), but a lot of people have seen me using one to make quick presentations or short movies. Why would they knock it?

A couple of years ago I started getting "I wanted a Mac but couldn´t afford one." Now I get "Next time, I´m getting a Mac. Any suggestions?"

When out-and-about, it´s funny how no-one, even to this day, has asked me how fast processor any of my Ti-books have. If I´d said 400 or 667 they wouldn´t believe me anyway.

Before I forced my sister to come with me to an Apple Store, she also assumed that all Apple computers were "iMacs." Drives you crazy when you're trying to explain something to a person.

Anyhow, at least they know what a Mac is. I told one person that I had a Mac, and they had the nerve to ask me, "so which version of Vista is on it?":confused::confused::confused: Oh boy was that a fun conversation:rolleyes:
