My rant on Mac users

If you're a regular reader of this web site, you probably already know that I'm not a fan of present day Apple computers.  I've received many many e-mails from Mac users, and talked to many people about why they just love their Mac.  If you have a reason, a need, and the money for one, then go buy a Mac, but so far I have yet to see a reason that makes any sense to me.  Below are real quotes from real Mac users.

"There are some things that you just can't do very well on a pc, that I can do on my Mac.  I can read e-mail, I can instant message people.  I had a database on here once."

"With my iMac, I get my e-mail through a web page so I can get to it on anybody's Mac.  You just can't do that on a PC."

Crazy Girl:  The reason I want a Mac is that the trial version of ProTools for PC only works on windows 98.  It doesn't work with XP.
Me:  So you want to spend $600 more on a slower Mac to run a trial version of ProTools when you could save $600, buy a PC, and spend $400 on the full version of ProTools, including the external audio interface?

Customer:  I had some guy put #9 on that thing to try and fix my problem, but I still can't get to websites.
Me:  (After testing the computer)  Sir, I'm able to get to websites just fine on your computer.
Customer:  How did you do it!?
Me:  Just type the web address in and press enter.
Customer:  In that little box there?  Oh.  You mean when I click on file, and then I click on new window that it doesn't go to the page I want for me?

"You PC users are just jealous because Macs can play music and PC's can't"

"We wanted to hook up our two computers together but we didn't want to run wiring.  So we bought Macs and they have this AirPort thing.  PC's can't do that."

"Macs are better because you can get 21" monitors.  PCs can't run monitors that big, their multimedia processors are too slow."


This has just been a small sample of the ignorance that I can remember.  As I find more, I'll post them.  If you have any yourself, feel free to e-mail me at
