...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.

its not that apple computers are more powerful, but that they are an "image" which artists want to feel a part of.

I've found it's impossible to be more human than human. Inhuman, however, is easy.

Of course! That's why schools spend millions on them every year! Because federally and privately funded institutions have so much less to worry about then their street cred. rolleyes.gif Most artists are pretentious dickbags who only paint because they hope to make an easy living and get laid. And yes, owning a mac, driving an electric car and drinking soy manages to bag some scags, some of the time. Macintosh used to be for a niche market. They are still designed for a niche market. They just came to understand that by attaching tits on something it immediately sells better.

That image may or may not be true. But guess what, that's what people think right now. So if your goal is to garner more clitter, then owning a macbook is a fast way to convince the shamelessly shallow female population that you actually give a shit about something. Of course the Mac has an image. We live in an empty, image driven society. Our culture tells us every ten years what we have to look like. I wish I grew up in 2000; do you understand how hard it was to find a woman that shaved in the 90s?

Owning a computer is like owning anything; understand what you really need it for and be honest. You might really want a Harley, but a sedan is better for groceries. If you work 80 hour weeks, maybe owning a dog isn't for you. PCs' are guilty of this too. Why the fuck do you need an alienware game system? Are you really that anal retentive to want to see the whiskers on jar jar binks scrotum? 99% of games don't even fucking register on something that beefy. Crysis 2 might need it, but guess what, Railroad Tycoon still looks like a dog pissed in your mouth. Nobody with a stable job can find enough time in the day to play enough games that makes owning a computer with a teraflop processing power worthwhile.

The reason is that when heartless says something stupid, he really means it and believes it.

“They refer to me as an uneducated barbarian. Yes, we are barbarians. We want to be barbarians, it is an honored title to us. We shall rejuvenate the world. This world is near its end.”
