My neighbor is giving me grief for being an Mac owner and fan (Mac Mini 2.26 in particular). He claims PCs are much better deals. According to him, PCs are cheaper to buy, easier to fix, cheaper to have repaired, and they do the same things that Macs do, mostly because PCs are not proprietary hardware like Macs are. He and his PC friend claim Apple Macs are "boutique" products, hence the hefty price tag to buy and repair compared to workhorse PCs. It's really the toaster as an appliance mentality...hey, if they all make the same toast, why pay a premium price? Watching a video or having a utility run will yield the same results on either type of machine. And if the motherboard or another part fails, it's easier to access a standard slotted PC than opening up a Mac. My response is you get what you pay for. Macs are better quality hardware, have the superior OSX operating system, and no virus issues. But this falls on deaf ears as a struggling attempt to come up with some rationale. So what say ye all? Why do we love Macs over PCs, and what do you tell followers of the dark side?
