I mean, Dell ACER Alienware are all substantially better designed, more user friendly and a fraction of the cost (well not Alienware but its a "specialty" computer). I just don't understand the raving lunatics that have to have every single fruit logo product they produce and every single upgrade they release even if they only just bought the other one 6 months ago... What am I missing?
I game, so I use Alienware. For my school work I use a Dell. I've had absolutely zero issues with either. Let the fruit logo zombies attack me now...
It's not the logo, it's the fact that the programs people use MOST are INCLUDED originally, and if you've ever used ANY Mac based gadgets, (computers, iPods, iPads, etc.,) and then tried to convert to a cheaper brand computer/tablet, you'll be ready to pull your hair out in 10 minutes, because compared to Mac stuff, they're so user UNfriendly, it drives you nuts. :p
My husband knocked Macs for years, (because of the price,) but he has a PC notebook and laptop, (1-3 years old,) and HE is the one you'll find on our 11 year old eMac watching YouTube, or Craigslist, or eBay, or WHATEVER, because even with his hunt and peck typing, he can drag a picture from ANYTHING he sees, to the desktop, to save and refer to later, or take a picture of the screen, (or parts of it,) if you aren't near a printer with a laptop and need to save a receipt or something. If PC computers were as easy to USE and DID EVERYTHING a Mac does, I could care less if it has an apple, banana, kiwi, or whatever on it. (Maybe its a guy thing...some secret code that guys must deny they like Macs?) ;). Merry Christmas!
