all this virus talk is confusing to me. i never have issues with virus's, and i torrent, look at porn, download shit all kinds of stuff. it's kind of easy to see a sketchy site or situation. i just don't understand how all these people get virus's.

and like dude said above, first thing PC users should do when they get a new computer is format and do a clean install.

This just means you really don't deserve to have a computer and are lucky nobody writes viruses for macs or you would be fucked. I don't understand how anyone with half a brain could actually get a virus nowadays with all the great virus protection.

Lol keep buying commercially produced computers that are loaded with useless free trials, stupid ass programs, and more. Coming from you saying that windows computers suck is a joke because you can't seem to figure out how to screenshot using keys instead of a camera. If you can't manage that then your points are invalid about viruses.

Are Macs worth it? Yes and no. Are they worth the price when it comes down to raw hardware to dollar ratio? Hell no. Not even close. Is the end user experience with OSX worth it? Depends on the person. I have a Mac because I really do enjoy OSX MUCH better than the alternatives. I've gone from Windows to Ubuntu to Arch and I can easily say that OSX is the most simple experience I've had in computing. When I was heavily into programming and such, using Linux distros and Windows was much more preferable because it allowed me to use my skills. Now that my hobbies and interests have somewhat shifted, Mac serves all my needs in a much more simple execution. The build quality is also great, and the customer service is second to none.

And as someone who knows how to remove malware manually, I'll say the lesser chance for viruses thing is nice. Not a life saver, but definitely nice.

@kr00kd You're right there. The best virus protection is going to be Common Sense 2012. If someone don't know how to avoid viruses then they really shouldn't be speaking on the issue as a whole.

How do you go through Windows laptops like that? Gets a virus and then you throw it away? Format, reinstall Windows, restore pics/videos/programs from external HDD, get virus, repeat. A virus doesn't mean the computer is garbage, it means you have a minor inconvenience and must reformat. If you have everything backed up, it's not really that big of a deal. I had a Mac-using friend get a virus on my laptop when I still had W7, I gave him a hard time for a few minutes and then began the formatting process.

Fucking windows babies. I have had every type of laptop worth getting. Whatever reason they failed is irrelevant. Macs are the better computer. Yes they may have a hefty price tag but for the anount if time I have had one they never did me wrong. No overheating. Viruses. Crashes. Nothing!!! Same battery same everything. For a college student there is a reason why you see that apple logo in your library being used by kids. Its about reliability. I cant tell you how many homies I had that had a Dell or Acer and the shit crashd mid essay or some shit. Just go on cnet.com and read honest opinions about a topic like this. All your gonna get is biased opinions from teenagers who quite frankly the only time they used a mac was when they stepped foot in the apple store to make a wish list for christmas.

actually I AM a tech junkie. i've built mine and all 3 of my roomates PCs, upgraded my own ASUS laptop to surpass the stats of a macbook pro (for less money) and im A+ certified. if you don't know what that means you have no place telling someone what machine is better for them to use, because you're talking out of your ass. the reason a shit ton of people have macbooks is because they love to follow trends. Pretentious assholes buy macs and try to tell people they're better, which makes more people cop. when a shit ton of people have them, you start feeling out of place when you dont, so you buy one. this is how macbooks remain popular. they arent bad computers in the least bit, but they aren't worth the price (which was OP's question in the first place) when you could get a regular laptop with equal/better stats for less.

Reason for failure is not irrelevant as you say. Hardware failure is the only reason a computer becomes garbage. I know just as many people that have lost a MBP to mobo failure as I do Windows laptops. If your computer 'failed' you by getting a virus, it is you that has failed, and twice over if you got rid of the laptop because of that virus.

Exactly what JH said, this nigga nikebridge going insane over some people replying to the question. Answer is no they are not worth it for parts. You could buy the 1k i7 and the 680 it would still run cheaper and better than a MacBook.

helpful note:easiest way to get rid of a virus (or last resort) is to reformat your computer, if you dont know how to do that then your simply wasting your money buying a new laptop when all you could've done is reinstalled everything and it takes less then an hour. Trust me ive had pretty horrible viruses in the past and all i had to do was reformat.

Ive had my Vaio Laptop for over 2 years and have had no viruses, no burnout no nothing and i only payed half of what macbooks are offered for. and i can STILL do the same amount of college work from a 500$ laptop compared to a 1000+ laptop. and most colleges use Microsoft office.

Be aware Apple spends a Billion on marketing their products, so there OBVIOUSLY going to market to their consumers that there shit is way better, when you can build your own computer for Less then what they offer, same goes for DELL or ALIENWARE or all the other crap out there, your paying for Labor + parts. i just wish it was possible to build your own laptop,

you can build a Top of the line computer for less then a thousand. better then alienwares garbage.

it helps if you educate yourself in technology, better yet your future.

@dunkinsb I can agree on your post. The whole apple marketing and Dell thing for the most part lol. I told the guy his best bet was a Vaio if he had the money. The base models are decent but most of the time u have to add space which bumps the price tag. I appreciate an unbiased opinion

actually the iphone isn't 199. probably without Contract, but what good is a phone without a plan? everytime an iphone releases its at least $400 w/contract, and the iphone 5 is gonna be upwards of $800, for a phone that isn't better. it doesnt matter if the point that i made is "olddddddd and playeedddddd" its still fact. you don't know the inner workings of computers (obviously) so you shouldn't have any say in a conversation about such.

@johnvharrison You have his backwards. It's $199 for the 16GB iPhone w/ a contract. $299 = 32Gb, and $399 = 64GB.
Without the contract it does reach up to $800.

Also contract = / = plan, I can buy an iPhone without a contract and still use the plan that I already have.

Other PC companies have unibody designs if that is your big comeback.

http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/laptops/NP900X4C-A01US?cid=ppc-

Then HP's Envy design, the new Vizios, the new VAIOs, etc. Personally I like the Vizio unibody and Samsung one better.
