What is Mac

Discussion in 'OT Technology' started by NorthernLightsFan, Jun 19, 2005.

  1. I was at a computer store and saw what appeared to be computer monitors laying in front of the store with a sign that read : Free Macks- the store owner was giving them away for free.

    I asked the store owner if they worked he said no they needed some parts Ram something to that effect I also asked him what is a Mac the store owner said that Macs were a poor excuse for a computer the place was busy ( the store didn't sell Macs Pc-s only) I didn't wanna ask to many questions so I left it at that the only thing I do know about Macs is that the graphics are Superior this... Ram is hell of expensive and they are immune to catching computer viruses, hummm immune to catching computer viruses ? I like that part But-

    The curiosity is killing me what exactly is a Mac and how do they differ from regular computers Can I get a Good one, Brand new with enough ram for 2 grand

  6. The 'MAC' computer was originaly invented by McDonald's Food Corp. to compete against Burger King's 'PC'. MACs actually use plutonium so you have to be careful when handling them. Remember Chernobyl?

  8. I still don't understand how a Mac differs from regular PC-s

    I'm seriously debating on rather to ditch Windowz and buy a mac just don't want to spend 2 grand ? on something that I never used before plus I don't know which brand is similar to a regular pc Mac Mac OSX or I pod

    For example say if I went and bought a Mac right now would it take a while to learn how to use or are Macs similar to windows , just different architecture ?


    What would all the Mac pros consider to be the best Mac on the market I'm looking for something uber a Mac that would be top notch nothing too fancy just something similar to the pc I'm using right now which is a

  10. No please don't tell him :rolleyes:

    Seriously though I'm thinking about buying a Mac and need some advice on which one to get
     
  11. Then don't read it

    This website, forum whatever it is will not allow me to copy and paste from a text editor.

    And the reply box is way to small it's impossible for me to see what I'm writing inside that Lil ole box the only choice I have is to hit reply then hope the message came out ok plus the pc or OS that I'm using is fucked up so I'm not able to hit the edit button and fix the post when the server is to busy.

    if you have access to a store that carries macs (apple store, Fry's, CompUSA), go in and play with one for a little while. If you don't understand it, ask some questions. It really isn't different as far as the GUI, but it does take a little getting used to if you've only used windows. I think it took me a little over a month to truly understand how it worked.
