Pick on Mac lovers all you want. Of course many are fine, but in the main, they are the most pretentious wankers on the planet.
Note, and I think Mac has the best hardware on the market. Also, great seamless integration between products. And Macs are a must for graphical, audio/video, artistic work.
But I know MANY people who have gotten every iteration of the iphone since they started making it. Just ridiculous.
I had a Macbook Pro throughout college and really liked it. I got the extended 3 year warranty on it, since it was so fucking expensive to begin with, I didn't want to have to pay out the ass to fix it if something were to go wrong. Well, sure enough, 2 months after the extended warranty expired the logic board shit the bed on me. I took it to the "Genius Bar" (I fucking hate apple stores, every employee i have ever dealt with in one is a pretencious little prick) and they told me they could fix it for $450. $450 for a 4 year old laptop!? I could buy a refurbed PC laptop with the same specs for that price. So I said fuck it and ended up just building a gaming desktop myself.
I will admit that MAC OSX is pretty sweet. And I love that you can look at all the porn you want without risking getting a virus. But for the absurd amount of money they charge for their computers, you can build or buy a PC that is much faster.
As far as I'm concerned Apple can go fuck themselves.
