Even Apple themselves had a whole series of comercials advertising Windows machines as PC's and their own systems as Mac's. It's an industry term that even the manufacturers use. PC may stand for personal computer, but it's a label that these companys came up with to describe the Windows machines.I think PC = personal computer got associated with computer for the masses, at Mac's price point it has never been seen as a computer for the masses but as a computer for the elite.
wait I'm sorry..what does your comment prove again? why is it that i can get a laptop with a core i7 processor for the price of a mac air with a dual core processor..Its funny how much people will pay for an apple all their laptop. not to mention crappy one-click featured operating systems. People with Mac laptops dont impress me at all. Mac G5 desktops are somewhat nice if you are able to put Windows on it. But Mac OS is useless to the general public. unless you're a web designer, art producer, or anything of the sort, the OS is nothing but a hassle in comparison to windows 7. And you'll say ehh but you don't get viruses blahblahblah. thats because virus creators don't have time to waste making viruses for such an under used operating system. Everyone uses windows, so thats what they target. and besides that, I haven't had a virus in years, and the only viruses i've had was due to my own self awareness and my own fault of trying to download programs that seemed legit. Took me about 2 seconds to get rid of them as well.The answer is simple.
P.C. = Piece of Crap
LOL... ok I could not resist.
I have a Mac Air.. So envy me guys...
The point is not the penis envy line like above.
The real reason is simply. it is a very practical, nice computer.
I suggest you people go and use one of these Mac Airs. I can guarantee that you will want to keep it.. they are a very nice well made computer.
And they will do virtually all things you need that any laptop can do.
And guys don't smivel about but game blaa. blaa.. go buy a desktop if you want that. My mac Air plays all the mac games very nicely. EG: world of warcraft, Call of duty, diablo, Dungeon Keeper1, Bz-flag, quake and even wolf quest to name just a few.
Also if I want to play or use a windows game or program, I have many tools that allow me to use the software directly on the computer.
for example I use Compe-Gps Air on my Mac Air. using Wine.
This is a little rant.. but I hope it will be somewhat informative..
You can have a very portable computer with tons of performance.
I do hope that the other computer company's manage to do this and make something to compete with the Mac Air. Because in reality there is no computer on the market that is in the same arena that the mac air is used.
