    Some of us like Macs, some of us don't like Macs. At the end of the day, big effin' deal - use what you like but at least have the courtesy of allowing those that do not agree with you to use what they want.

    fixed.

    Built my own PC for $700 that will outperform a $3000 MAC any day of the week. The best thing is, anyone can do it. The most scary thing about building a PC when you are researching, is all the wires, but once you get hands on with it, its real easy. You can find where most things go by simply just looking at the motherboard. Only a few things like the case wires require looking at the motherboard manual.

    I don't think you read the post I was talking about, because that's almost exactly what I said.

    Well in that case, I retract it. Anyway, it's a good reminder for everyone.

    Macbook pro 13". I like it. But I also have a PC which sometimes doesn't run as well as the macbook. I like both. I enjoy using both in different aspects of my life. (I use the macbook for travelling and ease of use when I'm recording) and the PC naturally is for the gaming and general awesomeness of using a PC.

    the Mac OS is an amazing experience and VERY easy to use. But PCs are more customizable and easily upgradeable. Both have pros and cons. So no arguing please =P

    PC - EU

    And Terito (page 3), yes Apple is really that more expensive. I took a little time to pick a random mac and look at a similiar dell system and a self-made pc:
    The apple had an i7 870, 4gb ram, 1TB hdd, HD5750 and a 27" screen, for 2.179 euro's (link)
    It took some time to find a dell system that gets close to this one, from its daughter Alienware you can get it for 2.029 euro's (link) (Its a bit better, more ram, better graphicscard but a bit less on processor)
    Selfmade i can replicate the mac for 982.52(!) including 27" monitor. (link)

    So ye, dell is almost as expensive as apple, but dell is overpricing you just like apple does.

    Build your own pc, thats the way to go

    PC - US

    Apple makes great computers and a great OS. The problem is that they are waaaay too proud of them judging by the price.

    If the price was equal, I'd have a desktop PC (that dual boots Ubuntu) and a MacBook Pro. But they're not.

    Desktop PC because I like to upgrade from time to time. I also know Windows like the back of my hand, and know that it'll run basically anything out there as pretty as possible.

    MacBook Pro because the aluminum body is very sexy, I love their power cords, and I don't upgrade laptops very often. Macs are good for productivity and ease-of-use (once you figure them out), which is what I want in a laptop.

    I use a Mac primarily but also agree that a PC is the way to go for gaming. PC's are amazing that you can upgrade what you want when you want without buying another CPU altogether.

    For my family stuff like Pictures, Music, Videos, I tend to go with an iMac. But Gaming, its PC all the way. I love both for different reasons. Just my opinion on the topic.

    It really depends on what you want to do with your Machine that dictates what you buy.

I'm on a move a lot and the reduced weight of apple laptops really pays off.
    This quote more or less state my opinion - that Macs are superior only in true niche markets like some departments at some universities or some audio applications.

    Anyways I voted PC US but I'd change to a linux distro if I could. Nothing good can come out of this page long term by the way, PC vs. Mac holy wars tend to be even worse than Xbox vs. PS3 because there actually is a significant difference.

    It's not FUD by any stretch of the imagination. The last cheap(ish) Mac was the Mac mini and Apple managed to hike the price up on that while maintaining last generation hardware. The stability argument hasn't been valid since XP service pack 2, and is only really of much relevance to servers or pro users. There are various small form factor PCs that don't charge an arm and a leg for a shiny case or upgrades. Energy efficiency may seem like an advantage of a Mac until you see the difference is so small it's 50p a year. In any case, more energy is used in manufacturing that Mac (or PC) than will be used by it in it's lifetime. This makes a PC more energy efficient because the parts are easier to replace, whereas on a Mac they tend to be all in ones. If your Mac breaks you get a whole new Mac. On a PC you replace a part.

    You accuse Mac haters of FUD then spread some of your own. 4kg wouldn't be equivalent hardware to a Mac it would be almost certainly be better, or a lot less than the $1200 you quote. Battery life I will give you, but at the expense of a user replaceable battery. If your battery starts giving you a hard time you pay a small fortune to replace it.

    Bear in mind also that Apple's American prices tend to be a little lower than worldwide.
    PvP is for those of lower intellect. Only someone with a low IQ would look at class imbalances, gear issues, racials, RNG, level advantages and number advantages and then claim that it was their skill was the main deciding factor in a battle. That's if they win. If they lose, the above will all of a sudden become relevant to them.

    Haha, i've just read the first 2 pages of this thread.
    Everyone who is hating are pc users against a mac.
    Mac's weren't built with gaming in mind, and it's true that pc's play games alot better, and have a wider choice of games to choose from.
    I have a PC desktop and a Macbook Pro for when i'm on the go and for work purposes.
    I've always been using pc's since recently i had to get a system with OS X on.
    I'll always prefer playing wow on my pc as i can buy cheaper components and get more fps for less money.
    What you don't realise that people who buy macs normally don't go for them for max fps on wow.
    I can say that my macbook pro was worth it's weight in gold. OS X is an awesome OS and i'd much rather use it for general taks (eg. surf the web, music.)
    My Macbook is very reliable and will consistently be fast, where as my recently built pc has got slower over time and will continue to.
    Just stop the flame wars guys, people with mac's don't buy them for playing WoW and having beefy specs.
    Both systems have different markets in mind.
    And i'm sure my Mac will last alot longer then my PC will

    PS. I love my pc too .

    My WoW playing has been PC>Mac>PC, so I think your wrong.

    Had a PC, was curious what Mac was like and a friend was selling one cheap that was better than my PC. Then my Mac was having a ton of issues with WoW (screen tears, wouldn't let me alt tab out to vent-found it easier to run vent on my PC and WoW on Mac), decided to upgrade PC so got new parts, ended up just making a whole new machine in the end that I use now. Dual screen quad core awesomeness.

    As for monitors, if I wanted to I could hook up my 42" 1080p HDTV... but I use a 22"ish for WoW and 19"ish for surfing/vent while on WoW.
