I understand why folks use Apple products. They're easy, they're reliable, and they just work. Yeah, you'll pay out the nose for a decent Apple computer, but if you have the disposable income and want a hassle-free system, then go for it. But, really? Resale value? Seriously? I understand resale value being important on a car, or a home, but a computer? How is that a selling point? Oh, and I built a computer in 2008 for roughly $800.00. I sold it two months ago for $350.00 Anyone who says Apple computers retain more resale value than PC computers is feeding you a sales-pitch. There may be a difference in resale value, but the divide is so small it's nearly negligible. Me? I'm a die-hard PC guy. Not because I think I'm better than everyone, not because I think Macs are garbage, but because I like to tinker, and I don't want to pay 30% more for a computer that "just works" and does the same things a PC can do. Were I an audio or video engineer, I'd probably use a Mac. Operating Systems loosely based on the Unix architecture tend to be more efficient with its resources so audio/video editing is much better on a Mac computer. I'm nobody special. I'm just your average guy that likes to "do it yourself" and PCs fit that need nicely with me. I've used Macs, and yeah they're all well and good, but they just aren't for me. I hate the stigma I get, though, when I quietly voice that I prefer PCs over Apples. I'm labeled an "Apple Hater" or a "PC Fanboy", and generally get ganged up on by the Apple folks in any forum or thread. It's not that I'm trying to stir up the crowd, but I think it's important to have both sides of the fence talking. Ah well, I can't get too upset about how things typically turn out. The debate of Mac Vs. PC has always been polarizing.
