...to a Mac. That's right - I have finally had enough.

We moved to Vegas about a month ago, and during the move the old PC died. Just up and freaking died. Not sure if it's the power source or the motherboard, but it won't fire up. So I decided to buy an HP Touchsmart, and it was a decent rig. Got it last Monday (the 21st). So I get it home and set up, and it starts to lock up on me. Constantly. During initial setup, and logging on, and logging off, and shutting down, and surfing the internet, and generally whenever it feels like it. So yesterday (the 26th) I spend 45 minutes on the phone with HP's tech support only to be told that the only option is to send it back so they can fix it. How long will that take, I ask. 4-6 weeks. Wait - I don't have another personal machine, and I have to wait 4-6 weeks to get the one I just bought fixed? Forget you. I told them I would just return it and they can refund my money (which they said they would seeing as how new it is).

So I'm trying to figure out what to do, and I decided I'd had enough. Time to switch to a Mac. Went to the apple store at Town Square in Vegas with $1500 and I walked out with an iMac. And I love it. 500 GB HD, 4 GB RAM, DVD Burner, 21.5 inch monitor. It's nice to have a machine that actually works for a change. I don't know why I didn't do this years ago.

Any other Mac converts out there? Anybody else get sick of owning a PC and went to a Mac?

We're more than capable of answering you, we're just not doing it because you're being a cunt, and it's you specifically we don't care about, we do care about the rest of the forums.

My $600 built-from-scratch PC is better than a $1500 Mac, and so was the $800 PC that it used to be. So technically, for $1400 I got two PC's for less than the cost of a Mac with weaker specs than either of them. Macs might be alright computers, but not at those prices.

And after a pre-made PC died on me, and considering how easy it was to build a new one, I'll never buy a computer again, I'll just build my own, assuming my beloved PC ever dies on me.

Massacre, you make me look like a rational, moral, kind person.

Massacre - What you've just posted is sick and disturbing...

When Massacre is around, everything is violated... Whether it likes it or not.

Whenever I think of "human resources" Massacre immediately springs to mind.
