Mac users, I would like to ask a question. What type of mac do you use. An iMac? A Macbook Pro? The Macbook Air? Or maybe the Mac Pro? I use an iMac primarily because Macs are the next generation computers and the iMac has everything from speakers to a built-in iSight, and it's all within the screen. The best thing about it is that there's no bulky, space-consuming CPU. Macs don't get viruses or the problems that you would expect on a Windows Platform. Furthermore, a Mac is not a Windows computer and a Windows computer is not a Mac.

That's illegal! That just so pisses me off when someone does something like that. If you want a Mac, then you will have to buy one, and if you can't afford one, the you will have to stick with a cheap PC, even if they may suck... I understand that you want a Mac because they are so great, but you just can't get one illegally because Apple could even sue you, and then you would be in serious trouble...

Ramsesxlll is right. You CANNOT steal a mac. You can only buy a mac. And that's not even half the story. If you steal a mac, or, as you said, convert a windows pc into a mac, you could get sued, and that would be very horrible for your reputation in society. I'm not trying to offend or persecute you or anything bad. I just want you to be safe in society.

Well that's what culture Microsoft created, the Culture of Pirates. Only a few knows that when we bought a Applications, Software or an Operating System (such as Mac OS or MS Windows) and according to User Agreement such as the EULA - What have bought are only subject only for "Right to Use" such products. And not bought the whole product itself for making manipulations or customize for own or self without the knowledge of the company or the manufacturer who produce such products. The worst cases are making such products for commercial use (just like on the case of Psystar vs Apple, Inc.). For personal use only it will be a minimal case but it is sure a very, very big bad wolf of karma. lol. As far for my knowledge when Mac OS is installed on a PC, it may work sometimes but it will become useless to have and what keeps on mind is just to have a real Apple Macs instead having a PC pretending to be Apple Mac. Apple Mac are not expensive they just have more practical common sense.

I am a macbook pro user, however I don't think my experience with mac's are typical. The dang beachball keeps coming up every other website or so when I use the internet. I have to force quit at least 10 times per session. Also, the computer still gets pretty hot on my legs. I am going to have to take it in to a mac's shop to get it fixed I think. But my boyfriend's computer and everyone else's computer that I've been on that's been a mac has worked really well!

Well, that's a little odd. My programs jump up and down when I start an application, but that's typical for macs. I know that heat problems are internal (inside the computer), but my computer heats up all the time (not thoroughly) when I use it, and I've had no problems with my iMac.

mac book pro. I chose it because it was more slender, more quiet, not getting as warm as a PC. Now I would never ever go back to a PC. PC users are just mac users to be i think. They do not know what they are missing. Like the people that do not think the ipad is anything great. Well - they must never have tried an appleproduct, and for sure not the on screen touch or touchpad on the laptops. They just do not know what they are talking about.

I use a Macbook (primarily) and an iMac, for when I need a bigger screen. I also have an iPod touch which I use to surf the net when I'm too lazy to use either of my Macs! Actually, there ARE Mac viruses around, it's just that they're so few since virus-makers (is that what you call them?) make viruses targeted for Windows (since they're more common). But yeah, you'd be totally unlucky to have your Mac infected by some kind of malware.

i don't have mac ,but my friend have one, he told me it is so expensive, and not very suitable for him , you know in china most of computer user are windows user, so it is so unconvinence to find software for free. but from the user-experience of hareware and software, mac is more superior than window.
