But... IT'S BLACK!

So, I've been watching people lose their shit for the last week or so over the new black MacBook, and of course making fun of them. Many people observe this behavior as a "PC is better than Mac" type crusade, but really I just find it ridiculous that whatever Apple puts on the shelf is immediately The Most Amazing Thing I've Ever Seen. I posted on a work blog about it, and all the Macophiles immediately jumped on me, citing the nicer (yet lesser featured) keyboard, slightly larger hard drive, built in webcam, and keyboard that "feels better". Oh... that makes sense.

I'd like to make a version of that Mac commercial where as soon as the dude from Dodgeball says "I'm a Mac", a hundred people come out of nowhere and start humping his legs and head.

I like (and by that I mean hate) that Apple ad that implies that your run of the mill digital camera from Japan works any better with a Mac than with a PC. They both have USB. Maybe Macs have better built-in software for managing photos. I'll give you that. But the ad is about communication, and it's the same damned protocol!

The PC and Mac guys holding hands to simulate a network is cute, though.

To be fair, the black one does look pretty hot. Too bad the graphics card is shit, looks like I'll have to keep saving for the 15" one so I can play Empire At War during lectures. sigh.

I went on a huge ranting session to a friend of mine who informed me that she
"needed a mac laptop" because they were infinately better than PCs in every way. I asked her "how so?" and she replied:
"faster, sleeker, smaller, and necessary for multimedia development"

I don't understand how this shit gets crammed into people's heads. My X40 is stupidly faster on almost all similar applications than on my G4 laptop. My X40 is 2 fucking pounds. The G4 is a fucking whale-beast heavy monster. The X40 is thinner than my G4. I've written two albums, and created countless amounts of 3D and 2D multimedia content on it. I'm sure the macbook pros are super fancy, and even faster now, but at the end of the day, you can pretty much do exactly the same shit on either platform. The only reason people think the way they do about the pretty mac is because their commercials have told them what to think. Think different indeed. Could they possibly CHUG any more cock?

I don't think they could.

I totally want one of those new little things.

I completely agree with you though. I think it is SO lame for Macphiles to say this and that about the black book. Also, I would get one because I am familiar with the operating system, not because it was just the newest Mac thingy. I am starting to get fed up with macmilitants.

On another computer topic, I just upgraded my home internet connection to almost 4mbs download 1mbs upload. I will be killing many more opponents in Call of Duty. Do you have this game? You should get it. We could frag away!

Played it at a LAN club for the first time, came in second place, am finding the overwhelming requirement to own my own copy and play it al the time.

Soon as I have a spare 40 bucks man.

Heh. I belong to a gaming group http://www.4thid.net and everything. It's a RAD game and I can't get enough of it. There are great mods and stuff too, like special sights on sniper rifles, blowback action on the guns and special sound packs that just rule on it.

Join our server anytime. Then I'll school you on your "second place" ranking. Heh. :)

Mac people are funny that way, they always feel the need to vehemently defend their Mac product. I've never known a casual Mac customer, only the fanatical kind.
