    I've found that most Mac users are as un-stereotypical as they get, which makes me laugh more when the stereotypes come around, moreso.. because it's just fun to play them out. Please don't be offended if you're stereotypical, it's not your fault!

    The last time I went to an Apple store, I swear I got the nastiest look when I got out of my 300 (I parked out in front on the curb), as I walked in the door. Turns out, those spaces are reserved for BMWs.

    Apparently, the same rule applies to selling Macs as selling products on TV ads - you have to have some kind of European accent. If you don't, you're not hired. Oh, and they like it when you wear a shirt that has very short sleeves.

    BMW, the preferred choice of Mac owner vehicle, is a mandatory step to owning an iPhone. They ask for your license, your social security number, and your car registration, and if you own a domestic, sorry sir you're going to have to leave the store NOW, BEFORE I CALL SECURITY!

    XD

    If you drool too much, you will be put in a giant hamster ball.

    ....
    post your stupid stereotype jokes. XD

    Ah California. I love it, but it can be a silly place. :)

    I wouldn't call the stereotype you posted "stupid" - Apple cater for the premium/luxury computer market, while BMW cater to the premium/luxury car market. It is a perfectly reasonable assumption to make that the quasi-wealthy who are in the market for premium/luxury products would be interested in both luxury cars and computers. I don't really understand the point of the thread.

    If it makes you feel better, anyone who believes no car is worth a second glance except a BMW is going to be denounced as a noob or a tool by any car guy.

    OTOH, Chrysler 300's are entirely larger than any car that doesn't come with a driver in uniform should be, and it's entirely possible I haven't the slightest idea what you're on about. :p

    I've personally drive a BMW 335i and I own a 17" UMBP and a white 32GB 3GS. Apple's stuff are more for premium customers who can afford better stuff and drive a BMW. :p Seriously a few weeks back, I pulled over besides a guy driving a white Lamborghini Murchielago and I saw him using a white iPhone. Felt pretty good seeing such people using iPhones. It's heartwarming. :eek:

    I could afford a BMW, would I want one? Not really. I think they look like every other car out there and don't offer anything special for the $$. Apple products at least do look different. lol.

    I use Macs because I am too dumb to use a PC.

    I live in a mobile home and use public transport.

    Even though I own a Mac, a BMW does not attract me whatsoever. I would rather have a Mini Cooper S than a BMW.

    The stereotype of apple users i have been hearing? They are hipster,liberal,homosexuals that buy a Mac for the look an name and have no idea how to use a computer.

    but thats just a stereotype.

    lol @ the "too stupid to use a PC" one. Someone actually said that in front of me in a programming class, where I could kick his ass with his own code. Very funny. :D

    I am very much not the norm for an :apple: user.

    I dress like WT, weigh treefiddity, drive a golf TDI, and build hi-energy laser systems for unspecified customers.

    I look completely out of place at an :apple: store, and I'm completely fine with this. ;)

    I demand humor in this thread. I was drawn here on false pretenses.

    Never quite got the Beemer=Quality thing myself. Streatham Mondeos, south of The River everyone has 'em :p

    Give me two wheels over four any day. Is that Think Different enough, or am I being a different type of stereo?

    Eugh. I like jazz. :D BTW my 300 is stock, if I were to do some mods they'd be suspension and interior. Would be nice to get some SRT8 wheels though!
