    non of my friends have macs.....i wish some of them did...it sure is lonely when you want to talk to someone or brag about something cool you did...i wish my friends were not so broke...sorry i'm just a little depressed(sigh)


    maybe i need to hang out in front of the apple store or something with a sign

    or just find richer friends

    or you could be content that you are the coolest person amongst all of your friends :p

    but... if you already held that title, then i'd definitely go with the sign outside the store idea.

    Do all your friends diss OS X? If so, I would go with the sighn idea:p Well, not really. I have friends who like OS X over windows, but mock me if I go into detail. It's kinda annoying:rolleyes:

    I'm the only Mac user of my friends as well. My buddy is wanting to try out OSX, but wants to do so cheaply. I'm currently trying to find him an old Powerbook on the cheap to see how he likes it.

    You would think that since I work in education and academia, I'd have more mac friends. No such luck. :(

    Get them to hackintosh netbooks - it can easily be done for less than $300.

    thats a very good idea!

    also, you could break into their homes at night and steal/destroy their windows computers... they are forced to buy new computers... at which point you swoop in and show them the wonders of os x

    it would be rather obvious if all the pc were stolen/destroyed at the same time :cool:

    Indeed! I never knew about that site. You can tell it's old just by looking at the font used.

    I live in Brooklyn so everyone is almost a mac user. Driving by the coffee shops and looking through the window you see a sea of glowing Apples.

    Windows will take care of that for you!:D:D:D

    You can, but they're pretty pricey! ( Think maxed out Mac Pro )!

    I have some :apple: friends. I am not even in the pic. Otherwise there would be 4 MBP. The guy on the left actually has 2 MBP's and there was also a MB, BlackBook and Mac Mini in the house. I just thought it was funny with three MBP's sitting next to each other. It was not staged at all. I happened to get up and saw how funny it was. So I snapped a quick pic with my iPhone and emailed it to all of them. Oh, yeah...4 iPhone present too! :D

    Hope you find some :apple: friends though. What you need to do is convert the PC friends you have!

    Why would you like to "convert" your friends? :confused:
    If they are happy, with, what they have, why should they change? Especially, if the don't have the money...

    Well I guess there's always MacRumors Forums and Twitter... Create an account and you'll be able to follow other's who love their Mac's and micro-blog your experiences! :D

    Here are 30 cents. It should be more than enough to call all your friends.

    Personally I don't give a flying fart what sort of computers my friends use. In what weird world should that make any sort of difference in a friendship?


    That being said, most of my friends happen to use macs. :p I've met several of them on this very forum. :)

    On a side note, I am only friends with people who use Wilson vollyballs....
    I can't believe it took them so long to make them.
