Ummm... I don't "enjoy" a Dell, HP or anything else like that LOL
"I" build my own, so they get built "exactly" how "I" want them to be, not like a store name brand or a Mac brand where they tell you what will be put into your system and take it or leave it.
And a Mac may have less problems, supposedly, but what no one ever mentions, is how much less software is available for them.
I work in 3D and the best 3D programs around, are ALWAYS lagging to get the Mac versions put out.
And that goes for any of the best games around too, if you're into gaming that is.
By the time a Mac user gets a game or a bit of software, the PC world is already onto the next versions.
And also, the simple fact that once you buy a Mac setup, thats pretty much where you stay, sicne you have no options to every upgrade the thing or make any changes to it and IF you did have any options at all, it's ONLY with expensive Mac componants, which are expensive, not because they are built any better then any other brand out there, but because it's a monopoly on the parts, with NO compitition to bring the prices down.
So there ya go, you're stuck paying for over priced parts.
I remember to this day when I went to buy a Mac modem and it was like $100 bucks, and this was years back for a 28.8k modem.
I looked on the PC side of the isle, and guess what, they had the EXACT same modem as was in the Mac package, on the PC version was only $65 bucks!
Soo, you pay more for the Mac name then for the proiduct.
Since it was just a modem, I decided to break the Mac rules and buy the PC modem, was the same thing anyway and it worked the same way too, plug in the fone line and there ya go!
But hey, this topic is about crapware, and for the most part, I guess a Mac does have less of it, but, then if people would rather pay a zillions more dollars, up to and well over a grand more then the equivelant on a PC just to not get stuck with crapware, then yeah, I say good for them too LOL
Orrr, they could just buy the Business versions of puter, which are still cheaper and not have to worry about crapware, orrr, just do what a lot of us in this forum do, and learn to put together your own system, it's not that hard at all, I've built sooo many over the years, there's nothing to it.
