    I didn`t start anything. I shared my experiences as a new Apple user that recently switched from a "Non Apple" computer like the OP. The topic is about Mac experience, so any good and bad experiences are the most relevant posts to follow. In this regard, none of yours are relevant, but that doesn`t mean you can`t share your ideas either.
    No, it is not. It is about how Apple f***ing sucks, and how the very thing you came in this thread to do pisses people off when they realize that it's bullshit. I think it was pretty clear that the OP didn't want to hear how great you think your computer is, how wonderful your experience has been, or any of it. And yet, you insist on coming in here and making all kinds of excuses for why you are acting like a dick. Do you not understand that you don't have to shill for your company at every given opportunity? This shit is so bogus, I can't believe you even believe what you are saying. Do you expect to get a discount or something? Why do mac users insist on trying to "convert" people? I'd be completely unsurprised if you started telling people they were going to "go to hell" for not buying them. It's like once you hear how fucking GREAT Apple is for the 3033rd time then you start to believe it or something, and all you people are rushing to make your quota and get more people onboard. It's sick.

    If i sound like I'm preaching an anti-Mac religion, its only because I'm fucking tired of all you Zealots coming around and trying to market everyone into your stupid cult. Goddamn right I'll be the antichrist.

    I've never had a Mac and my Laptop has been going strong for 10 months without a single freeze. I have plenty of reason to be a PC fanboy, but I'm not and I can smell a lot of that here. Seriously, the PC people in this thread are acting Mac like.

    If this thread is about how much Apple sucks, that means it`s about Apple experience. Just like any other experience thread on this forum. If the thread is Kiton sucks, other members with experience in Kiton can share their experiences good and bad. If you don`t think a particular post is relevant, you just pass and ignore it.

    Acting like a dick? Are you talking about yourself again?

    I am not shilling for any company at every given opportunity, as this is the first post I ever made about my Apple experience (sorry "Apple Lifestyle"). On the other hand, if taking every opportunity to shill for something (or against) is your description of a "dick" I think it`s clear who the dick is here.

    It always ends up that way. Partly because I refuse to take any of the bullshit that Mac people want us all to just "accept" as the truth because it's the company line.

    Everyone here knows it. Eventually, people are just going to stop being idiots about their computers, which is ALL I EVER WANTED IN THE FIRST PLACE.

    I could care less if you use a Mac. Use whatever you want. The second you start with the smug, corporate spiel about how cool/safe/easy/so much better/blah blah blah is than every other personal computer in the world, I'm going to tell you like it is. It's bullshit.

    Apple prides itself on its customer experience, but honestly I think the best customer service is the one that you don't ever have to contact. A friend of mine has had his mba fail more than 3-4 times in just this year, and that's simply an absurd number.
    Snow Leopard has issues too, messing with people's batteries and whatnot. Really something I think that Apple probably should've troubleshooted and found a long time before they released the upgrade.

    There are other computer threads out there like "Which laptop to buy" etc. If I felt happy with my PC (Am I allowed to use that term now, since a "Non Apple" user used it too?) purchase, I would have made the same type of post describing my PC. There are also other threads out there like "I am having problems with my Spyware or Antivirus" etc. If I feel happy with the software I am using, I usually put in a review as well. Same goes for browsers, etc.

    So you make a habit of trolling Kiton threads too?
    I'm sorry, I don't read the clothing forums.


    I'm not the one who came in here looking for a fight. Everyone was getting along just fine until you started your antics. You must have chosen to come in here and exhibit the behavior you did for a reason. I'm wondering why.

    It was clear that you came in this thread and either didn't read the OP when he said how much he was pissed off at the propaganda and marketing of Apple, or read it and purposefully decided to antagonize him and everyone else in this thread with your sales pitch. Then when a number of people called you on it, you accused us of being to blame for your actions.

    What, do you want me to apologize for misleading you all those years and making you not buy an Apple? I'm sorry, but you are a big boy and you make your own decisions. You came in here to troll, I'm treating you like one.

    It happens all the time with large corporate computer manufacturers. They cover up and deny problems until they reach some fiscal limit of resolution where it's more expensive to ignore the problem than to fix it. Then it's fixed.

    Remember how exploding MacBook batteries were the customer's fault? Then all of a sudden there was a recall.

    Now iPhones are bursting. It's not Apple's fault yet. But eventually it will be.

    [​IMG] This is Style Forum and you don`t read the clothing forums? [​IMG] What do you come here to do? Spread your cult?

    Everyone is getting along fine before and after my post. You are the only one worked up about my post.

    I made my own decision. I would not say my decision has nothing to do with marketing, or nothing to with online reviews, or even nothing to with posts I have read here, including yours. In the end though, I made my decision based on my computer needs and I am happy with it. If there are threads on computers or software in the future, and I feel like pitching in, I will share whatever I feel like sharing...not what you think I should share.

    Of course, I think you should continue to share you ideas/options as well, but maybe not as aggressively. [​IMG]

    Every PC I have owned (including the one I'm typing this message on) has been about as reliable as a yugo. The macs I have owned have generally been pretty good, although one had hardware problems. I think their relative good-ness peaked with the G4 running os9 though; when all you have to compete with is microsoft, you have very little incentive to maintain a high standard of quality and efficiency. Snow Leopard could basically be garbage and it'd still be a few steps up from vista. My next laptop will be a mac, but only if they make a really tiny one like the mini vaio:

    Otherwise I'll just get something small like that.

    Thats cool. Whenever you get frustrated with something and voice your displeasure, I'll make it a point from now on to come into the thread and pick at it and exploit it, and essentially taunt you like you did to the OP here. Just because It's my personal experience and I feel like it's my right to do so. I need to share all of my experiences with everyone just in case I might someday influence somebody to do something!

    Really? Yikes. Can you explain why you want a Mac, but only if they make one like a Sony Mini Vaio? Why not just get the Vaio? FWIW, how "bad" Vista is has been blown way out of proportion. Is it comparatively the greatest thing ever released? No. Is it better than XP? Yes.

    Uhh....keep your software reviews regarding a specific brand of software to yourself. You were not directly addressed by the OP regarding this, and no one asked your opinion on the Vaio or Windows Vista. [​IMG]

    You are an incredible prick. Congratulations. I hope you are happy with how this all worked out for you.

    You`re using the wrong term. All computers are PCs so you should use the term "Non Apple Computer." If you don`t you are ignorant.

    He's trying to come of as completely ignorant, so that he's free to behave like an asshole without any consequences. He's acting like a bitch because I pointed out that Macs are in fact, personal computers earlier and that Apple is a PC manufacturer. It even says it in the very first Apple ad you posted. [​IMG] Don't bother trying to help him or correct his terminology designed to mislead and obfuscate, he'll just make fun of all your "fancy education"and mock you even though he's clearly wrong. I'm just "sharing my personal experiences" here. Am I playing this game right Dragon?

    You should be happy I was correcting his ignorance for you...acting on behalf of your cult. You are the one who said it was ignorant to use the term PC to describe Windows based computers. Or is it OK if Windows users use the term in an "ignorant" way (per TS description...not mine)

    You missed the point of my correction. As usual, you fail to "get" anything. I can only assume that it's on purpose. You cannot just say PC's do X or PC's are bad, or every PC I've ever owned is a piece of shit, and then turn around and say that Macs are great. The Mac is a PC. See, this is the main fallacy in the Mac vs. PC argument. There are hundreds of PC manufacturers. Apple is not criticizing "PC's" like ASUS, HP, Dell, Compaq, Acer, Lenovo, etc. It can't because there is literally no competition. Macs are made of the same parts than most of the other big players use. It is criticizing Windows. It is intended to create a separation between other PC's and itself by creating a division between Apple and other manufacturers to create a false sense of value. While criticizing something completely different. Windows is an operating system. Not a computer. It creates a false perspective with which people view Macs. Not understanding this is ignorance, and it's ignorance supported and propagated by Mac themselves, and those that regurgitate Mac slogans.
