    Macs Suck

    Before I say anything, let me say that I, myself, have an IBM (Lenovo) ThinkPad, and I haven’t had any problems with my computer for over two years now.

    Adam Peck, the guy up there who’s touting his beloved Mac computers just went to the Apple store today because his hard drive crashed. His iBook has failed him. I could rest my case right here, but I’ll go on further.

    I’m here to say that most people, those who think Macs are “better,” those who listen to “I’m a Mac, I’m a PC” commercials, are wrong. The only reason Macs don’t crash as often as PCs is because Apple, Inc. (AAPL) builds its own computers. People don’t know realize that Dell PCs really aren’t great.

    I understand that people feel Macs are “cool.” Sure, Macs might be useful if you’re into using computers for hi-fi graphics designing or if you have thousands of gigs of music that they need to keep safe. But lets be realistic here. AAPL is just selling you a product that you don’t need.

    Who needs an unreliable machine with all the frills when you can get a reliable machine like my ThinkPad that does lets you get your work done without any additional headaches? Sure people have a couple of gigabytes of music, some videos. Most PCs, with the right amount of RAM can handle that stuff.

    If you’re still unconvinced, you might want to go ask Mr. Peck up there how he’s doing after losing a year and a half worth of stuff from his iBook.
