10. Many people have thousands of dollars of invested in old technology. And sure, what's wrong with old equipment? You know, dot-matrix printers, Pentiums, 12-inch monochrome monitors, punchcards, and other museum pieces. It would really suck if your Mac couldn't use any of this great new technology? I mean, if you couldn't use your thousands of dollars worth of 5-1/4" floppies and drives, it would be a good reason not to get a Mac. Right?
9. Owning a Mac can lead you to many uncomfortable social situations. For example, when you and a couple of PC owning friends go out to go shopping for the newest Sound Blaster. Your friends are shocked when they learn that your Mac doesn't need a Sound Blaster, and that it can do everything the Sound Blaster does built-in. Good-bye friendship.
8. When it comes to bragging about the power of your computer, Mac users are at a grave disadvantage. For example, a 200 Mhz G3 Macintosh does integer calculations equivalent to a 362 Mhz Pentium II. So what fun is it to be able to only brag about 200 Mhz, when it is really way faster than an equivalent PC?
7. Networking on a Mac is not an impressive feat. It's only slightly harder then tying you shoe, 'Nuff said.
6. What's up with this fad of having computers black? Of course, we all know that black cabinets make computers smarter and faster.
5. Plug n Play has been around on the Mac since 1984. So, what's the big deal with plug and play in Windows 95 and 98?
4. Does anyone know why the Mac mouse is so much slower than a PC mouse? It's because Mac users want precision, they don't want the cursor to fly everywhere to make the computer feel faster. Mac users want the computer to work for them, not the other way around.
3. Macs are too easy. All you need to do is plug them in and they work. Where's the challenge in that?
2. When you add stuff to your Mac, you just plug it in and it works. Again, where's the challenge? Come on, it's boring when you never have to reinstall the system, spend hours with tech support, and tear out your hair looking for a broken part or missing part.
1. Clients and teachers know about #3 and #2, so they expect Mac users to deliver results, not excuses.
