Default Re: Apple v PC

(EDIT: Responding to Stewart) Well that's certainly something Apple play on in their adverts on their website (and presumably elsewhere): a pot-bellied balding bespectacled man in a double-breasted suit has under him the words "I'm a PC," and beside him there's a young early-20s dude with T-shirt and jeans with "I'm a Mac" below him. Pshaw to that. Certainly this tendency of Apple's to advertise on the basis that "we're the underdog, therefore we're better" is irritating. But are they better? Admittedly their machines look cool and screenshots make applications look effortless and, well, nice. But are they better?

And why do you hate Apple, Stewart?

EDIT: Thanks gil.
