    After having two HP laptops fail within one year of purchase I have decided that purchasing a Mac may not be a terrible decision.

    I'm asking Mac and PC owners alike, why I should buy a Mac? Which models are better and why??

    What are you using the laptop for, and how did the last two fail?

    For the generalist without specific needs, you can't beat the basic MacBook.

    Once I was in a Starbucks typing away on my MacBook Pro when a girl, enamored with my individuality and impressed with my savvy consumerism, sat down next to me. We later ended up having sex.

    Because Apple told you they're better than PCs and you're not smart enough/a big enough geek to use Linux.

    Real Talk:

    One time I was sitting in the airport waiting for my flight (I hate BWI so much it's a fucking cocksucking hellhole) and was fucking around on my iPhone when a cute girl was like 'hey is that an iPhone, can I see it?' and we ended up talking for like 30 mins, sat next to each other on our flight (Southwest) and then...

    I never saw her again.

    What are you using the laptop for, and how did the last two fail?

    I'm not using it for anything that is too intensive. From what I understand Macs are used by those in photography, movie making etc. Photography is something I am interested so I would like to take that into account when purchasing a laptop.

    My first HP has malfunctioned in four different capacities, and my latest has issues with the power supply. I've heard Macs don't get viruses and I have been having trouble with malware and things on this current PC as well.

    Do you plan to use said computer to edit homemade pornography?

    This is very important
