    Also, this study was hardly scientific. There was no random sampling done of either population, no reliability tests done etc. It's simply something done more for fun and conversation.
    Yep, what he said. It's just for the lawlz

    I'm a Mac user but I relate more to being a PC user. So according to this poll I'm not being true to my self. I always knew I was a Hill Billy at heart.

    Really...

    Mac users will fix there macs or die trying while pc users ask there mac friends to fix it for them.

    You know how stupid that sounds am a pc user and I have 5 friends that own a Mac and each one of them comes to me so I can fix it for them when ever they have a problem with it.

    Go to an apple store and sit at the genius bar and count how many ppl walk in every day to get there macs serviced.
    Then go to a bestbuy and do the same at the geek squad area and compare the number of ppl walking in at both stores.
    PC users won't even come close to half of the ppl the walk in at the apple store.


    Don't get me wrong I love apple products to. Thinking of buying a 17" Mac book pro but after reading this I think ima just wait it out.

    I don't agree with their survey. I own both (2) PC's & (2) Mac's. But i dont label myself for either.
    That was funny, Mac users would rather fix their own. I think that is what PC users do.
    I use windows 7 at work for business (Architect) and have tried a few times to do what I do with a PC on my MBP. There are just too many limitations for me on the OSX platform using Office2011, Autocad2011, Network drives, Acrobat X, ect to name a few, that it reminds me why I don't use macs for business. I use my Mac in my Studio and for recreation purposes.
    I think the survey should look at what platform the general public uses vs. the folks that can afford a Mac and update it once a year. I was at the apple store the other day speaking with an employee about some problems I'm having with Protools and as soon as I told her a wasn't using the latest Mac on the market (2009 MBP) she resorted to your computer is ancient and you must update to the newest Mac pro. Funny how Protools ran flawless on my windows xp machine for 6 years solid.
    I really think it boils down to how much money you have to blow on the latest technology, and the majority of people don't need a $2000 media player, they need a $500 PC that can get the job done.

    At least when you buy a mac you have a choice. I'm personally a PC user but those with mac's can install windows if they choose to. The only time I ever really wanted OSX was when PwnageTool ruled the jailbreaking world back in the 1.x - 2.x firmware days. Now with the multitude of jailbreaking tools being released across all OS' I'm perfectly happy with a PC.

    Fourth: Transformers is Awesome weather you use a PC or a Mac
    Fifth: I like Vodka and hate Frank Caliendo
    and last but not least. Windows 7 sucks !!!!
