its like saying that BMW is better than Audi, because you never change oil in a BMW.
It was a few pages back, don't feel like searching through walls of text.

BMW Won't change my oil bc its too soon

I don't understand the point of reselling old machines anyways, I can always find a use for them. That or I can upgrade my PC hassle free.

You sell your old system, so your house doesnt turn in to a PC/MAC museum over a period of 20 years.

There are 5 Macs and a NAS in the house already. Plus 2 G5 iMacs, GF's old eMachines laptop, a Dell GX620, 2 Cisco switches, Cisco ASA 5520, and 2 1U SuperMicro servers sitting in the closet.

I really really do not need any more computers in the house. The old days of hoarding computers and burning electricity with unused computing power are gone. The last thing i want to see when I get home is computers all over the damn place. I deal with enough of that shit at work.

As far as desktops, I just keep upgrading and give my old parts to buddies doing cheaper builds, or sometimes put together a media computer with the left overs.

As far as the OP: I was hardcore PC fanatic for years, hated mac. I finally got fed up with all the quirks in Windows that I did a hackintosh with snow leopard, and loved it so much I don't ever see myself going back to PC. No real reason to buy a Mac either though, IMO, except for business use. Too easy to switch a PC to mac now.

Too late for some of us. I think I have half a room dedicated to old computers. x.x

There is also a decently narrow window if you are going to sell. As aging tech quick turns to completely obsolete tech in about a year.

I don't hate apple; just another company with a very smart CEO who knows how to establish brand loyalty. A lot of their stuff is pretty cool actually. I'm mainly in it to bust fanboy ballz.

Well you know what I mean, I was 'inline' with the thinking, of the majority of the posters in here. I had used them before too, and hated every minute of until I fully switched over. If I still played games I'd prefer PC, but other than that I see no advantage to PC over Mac other than price. I've built the Mac I'm running on from parts from frys, so it didn't cost anymore than building an equivalent PC.

That said, I would NEVER buy a mac pro, unless it was for business use. With the new hardware coming out, os x is compatible with most of it so there isn't a real reason to buy an Apple desktop. BUT, I would choose an iMac over any other all-in-one PC, or the Air over any other portable laptop.

This might be the next Apple product I buy

it's easy to hate things you know nothing about and post juvenile price comparison images that are made by people who can't see beyond published specs and dollar figures.
