I feel that people are buying Macs for the wrong reasons. Some friends who bought a Macbook Pro use it for their school homework and web surfing. Some others bought it because they ‘think’ it syncs, works and integrates better with their iPhone or iPod touch. And some others buy a Mac because they ‘know’ it doesn’t get viruses and malware that Windows PCs get. Go figure.
Most of those people I talk about aren’t tech savvy so whatever I hear from them from arguments goes in one ear and goes out the other. But at the same time it worries me what those Mac ads are doing to the public. Those ads are brain washing the public. But in the end it’s Apple’s most powerful and most expensive weapon: marketing. Everyone knows Apple is nothing without their marketing department. It’s what brings them profit. Whether if they’re pushing they’re patents and copyrights or brain washing the public. It’s all about making money in the end.
I am sticking with my Windows PC for a very long time. I just don’t see the reason to switch. It’s proven that whatever Macs do a Windows PC can do it too for a cheaper price. Plus programming for Windows is a walk in the park compared to the Mac OS X.
