Unlike my superficial, trend-obsessed, metrosexual rival, I find that there’s more to a computer than a pretty case. Computers aren’t supposed to be overpriced paperweights as so many Mac users treat them. Don’t believe me? Keep reading.
Let’s be honest: your average college student uses their computer only for word processing, listening to MP3s and checking their Facebook every 15 minutes. Why spend two grand on a computer when you can get all of those things for one-tenth the price with a PC?
PC producers know that there are billions of people on this earth, and each one is unique. If you need a big hard drive, a faster processor, a high-end graphics card, or lots and lots of RAM, there’s a computer out there that’s built to meet your exact specifications. If you can’t find one, you can buy the parts and build one in a few hours. On the other hand, if you like having the same inflexible, out-of-the-box-same-as-everyone-else-computing-machine, buy the Mac.
Think about it: PCs are initially less expensive, they’re easier to code on, they are made for gaming, they sport a ridiculous number of ways to be customized to your exact specifications, the warranties are cheap and when your computer isn’t covered by the warranty, you can fix it without financing the new parts and service by selling an organ. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
I admit that Macs are everything they say they are, but that really doesn’t add up to much, does it? I mean, Paris Hilton is good looking, worth a lot of money and easy to use, but that doesn’t mean you should, because trust me, the viruses will show up one day.
I guess now that I think of it, there is one reason I’d buy a Mac. It would finally get all of those annoying, holier-than-thou Mac fanboys to leave me the hell alone.
