A Mac might sound like a good idea, but here's the real deal.
I bought my mac with the accessories that I needed for a total of $2700.
A 15 inch, macbook pro, i5 2.53 GHz, about 11 months ago. Since then, I have had so many problems with it that Apple had to change the Hard Drive, and the logic board already. Now, the logic board is failing again, that's a 3rd repair on a computer less then 1 year old.
The issue isn't that Apple is not servicing the machine, but rather that this mac needed so much service. Apple has been pushing and pulling me back and forth with many appointment to the genius bar where they check for the problem, and MYSTERIOUSLY NOT FIND IT! Well, I decided to record the Problem on my phone and upload so that everyone else can see.

My Macbook pro's screen suddenly shuts off and the computer becomes unresponsive and I have to restart it manually. iPhoto, Aperture (which are photography and photo management programs) stop launching, and many many more things just lag.

So, when you think about buying a Mac, know that you are paying up the A$$ for it, and you will be getting the runarounds from Apple as long as you own that computer.

Get smart, get a PC. for 700$ you'll get a pc with the same specs as a $2000 mac.

Cheers!

I bought an imac 5 years ago, never got a virus, and it runs as fast as my brother's new pc

That's because PCs have no innate specs. A PC is merely a personal computer. Some are better than others depending on the content. One could construct a PC with outdated content, or build a cutting edge PC. Either way, the PC was still cheaper.

Just because yours doesn't work doesn't mean that all macbooks or apple product dont work. Please dont over generalize

+John Smith Didn't you notice that it could just be an issue/refurbished, if he was smart enough, he would send it back to the apple store.

+Anton Kandalin you talking to me? I don't like Windows that much either but my opinion if that kind of thing changes a lot. Edit: oh you said why lol. Because I hate being constricted to the exact same boring desktop environment. 
Anton Kandalin
Wait, what is your reasoning that Windows is the best operating system?

if most of the people hating on this video about "macs don't lag" & "pc's suck" actually knew anything about how computers work then they would most definitely switch to PC. read this: http://www.mediafire.com/view/y7ond1qd1o9k6os/Mac_vs._PC_Analogy.jpg

me too thanks
Macs are much more stable, not that much more expensive and look great. the windows OS is ugly as shit, but its' much cheaper and you can pretty much configure your own PC.

Yup, but I can't say it's not reliable... My mac is 2 yrs old and with the latest (free) software upgrade it's a bit faster than when I bought it!

Sounds like it's a personal issue have you been throwing it off a balcony or something? I've had my mid 2012 Macbook Pro for a 18 months now and nothing has gone wrong and I'm a heavy power user I have Adobe Master Collection CS6 and run Audition and Premier Pro sometimes Compressor and a couple other smaller programs at the same time and have had no issues. I edit videos weekly and nothing has ever gone wrong I even run my fans at 6,000 rpm using SMC Fan Control and they are still brand new. If you don't take care of your shit of course it's going to fuck up. Don't blame Apple because you don't know how to care for your stuff.
