    Whats the bet mac users are more likely to whine and throw money at every problem in their life, and never fix anything themselves or do handiwork around the home.


    Again - no offense to mac users on TPU. you guys are at least smart enough to be on a forum :D

    ROFL, good point! I don't know if the world could handle the 75+% that would come out of that @_0 Or the 8.23% that know how to post on a real forum. Not just a blog or myspace ;p



    I have worked with Macs and Linux so for me this is all in good fun everyone.

    HAHAHA!!! That's too funny...

    I think anyone who has an apple product are snobs... "OMG! My new iPod touch is better than your sansa e280" "OMG! MY iPhone is better than ur envy"

    OMG! Apple! Who cares that you have a freaking apple product! That doesn't make you of a higher class, does it?

    The thing I hate about most Mac users is they know nothing about computers. A lot of my richer friends buy macs "because they're expensive, therefore good. And also they're pretty". I was talking to my friend who is a Mac user and he asked me what I was up to. I said I was hacking my friend and just messing with him. So he goes "haha stupid Windows, you can't do anything to me". So I said yeah I can, I can laugh that you paid $2400 for a glorified Ipod.

    People are saying the iPhone's are better than them, which I happen to disagree.

    not even the tough screen is revolutionary, but the way they play it up you would think it is

    I really can say I have learned a lot more about you guys here lately, and have found my self feelings kinda awkward. This thread honestly makes me feel like I being stereotyped for no apparent reason...Sorry if I'm the one to come in here and burst a bubble, and I also apologize if this sounds emo. Anyway, thanks guys! :toast: Big thanks to Zek for posting this! :toast:

    :ohwell:

    ravenous that sounds like snob talk, jk your a cool dude and obviously not a snob, you know what your talking about (about pcs and whatever) but remember the only worse than being a snob is an emo snob ;)

    the main reason as to why i dont like macs is because they are SEVERELY over hyped, and as this little study as proven a good chunk of mac owners tend to be on the snobby side, and there all like omg we have macs were artists because we own macs and we have a far superior intellect because of it, granted not all mac owners are like that, a few forum memebers have proven that, but there are a few people that i know that are like that
