I believe it's a misconception that Mac users are snobby just bc they'd prefer to spend money on a Mac than spend some on a PC and save the rest. I could say the same about PC buyers. Mac users are just defending themselves the same as a PC user would defend him/herself. It just looks bad on a Mac user bc Macs cost more therefore automatically deeming people as "snobby."

The greatest problem in most of these arguments is that pc people just don't get it. Keep replacing the "superior machines" every three years then buy a Mac. Two years ago, a man brought an Apple 2e into an apple store because he wanted a bigger hd. That comp was over two decades old. Apple sells long-lasting solutions. What's under the hood doesn't matter at all because the os runs correctly.
In this regard:
Apple = BMW
PC = Ford
Sure the mustang may be faster, but in three years time, I'd put money that the Beamer still drives like new.

Many use the fact that it might take a little time to get used to any new OS as a failing of some sort.
I use both Mac OS X and Windows 7. Neither OS is perfect and neither OS alone does what I need it to do. Both have their uses, their pluses and their minuses.
These Mac Vs PC, Xbox Vs PS3, iPhone Vs Android or whatever "debates" (and I use the term loosely) only end up doing one thing, and that's fueling stupidity, arrogance and ignorance. Very few people it seems can actually have a normal discussion about two rivaling things without becoming fanboys that are both blind to their own things failings and also un-accepting of their competitors superiorities. That goes for both sides of the coin.

Forget about Mac and Windows. Real tech savvy people know Ubuntu is where it's at. Even with some programs (like iTunes) not being built for Linux theres many alternatives to those programs. Linux > all.

I also have Ubuntu booted via VMware on my MBP
I hate the rivalry. I think it's all dumb. But that's how competition goes I guess.

Like mentioned before it's a matter of preference. It mainly what you like or are comfortable with. Personally I don't care for either one give me a Linux box and I'm happy. My i7 has gentoo running on it with slackware partition, windows 7 partition and osx partition so it's essentially a quad boot. Think I've been in windows once in past couple of months and osx like twice in two weeks. The reason for the Linux is because that's all we use at work (behind the scenes) gotta love it.
Ubuntu is a beginners Linux by the way. There are way better distros out there. Just not as windowy as ubuntu but way more powerful.

Why oh why when there is some PC vs MAC debate do the Mac-fanboys mention the bluescreen death? Im a PC user and never had a bluescreen since windows 95! Its just a lame excuse or 'justification' for their fanboy-ness. My ipod touch has crashed multiple times however, serious on some occasions, so should I use that comment everytime??? If Apple got off their high horses and made things 'real' rather than relying on fanboys dry humping in an apple store over the genus bench over looks and specs, then they may gain more considerable ground over MS as they come back down to earth and what the 'common user' not some savvy nerd wants from a machine...they are the bread and butter of the pc purchases.

I build computers all the time, never built a Mac. It seems to me Mac's are for people that just want it to work. For them that's great but for me a PC is best. You can do a lot more with PC Program's Game's. Less expensive in every way. Mac's can get hacked just as easy as a PC. Safari was just hacked. It's just the way it is.
Always a PC never a Mac.

It doesn't matter which one is better it's what people are willing to pay for.
Most people buy a Apple product because everyone else is and same goes for a PC. Really each it all comes down to what you need it for. Me I own both but rather have a PC since you can upgrade with out paying a arm and a leg.

MacBook is overpriced when compare with PC in the same performance. I've just got my Dell XPS 17 i7 2nd Gen fully loaded with BD Burner 3gb Video Card 1080P 3D Display, etc. for $1,400. Never had a blue screen for a long times since Vista & Windows 7.
Has to admit that MacBook looks sleeker & sexier.

Not trying to argue, but it's not the same performance. It seems like it, but it isn't. Purely based on using the Mac and not the numbers and specs...that's what counts.
