Annoying mac myths

Basically Mac users have been going on for years about how although mac specifications are at first glance lower, they are still faster machines... which I took with a pinch of salt.. but half accepted.(especially considering the price tag for apple's)

But now Apple are using the use of intel chips as a selling point, but basically isn't it like saying "ok so our chips wern't as good as theirs all along". What is the truth? Is the idea that macs are faster just a myth?

one thing ive nover got over is the price issue...i think you pay through the nose for the styling etc...

and why does one graphics card for the pc cost one thing then the same version card for the apple with the same specs cost ridiculously more? :rolleyes:

yes. you could always build a technically faster and far better pc than a mac, more storage, more ram, better graphics capability, etc, but apple had fantastic marketing, persuading all them folks to buy imacs and ipods rather than better and cheaper alternate products

spending the same money on pc's, you can get far better value for money, speed and capacity. and as for the viruses and crashing issue, in my experience macs caused far more problems than pcs, and when you consider the mac share of the userbase, the percentage of problems far outweighs pcs. the problem is simply that more people own pcs, thus more problems are going to occur on pcs than macs. macs have limited hardware and software solutions, thus limiting potential problems. spend the same money on pc and follow the same principles as mac and you'll have less problems, and you have a far greater support and help base

Not to mention the main reason people fork out shedloads for the latest computers, games, 99% of which are incompatible with macs.
