    Nice advice, will be good for Mac users surely !
    but, contrary to popular belief's spread by internet rumor mills.. !! Macs do go bad, don't they ?

    Why is there an inevitable need badmouth Macs?
    Nobody thinks that way, they just "go bad" less than Windows PCs. And as Sachin pointed out, nothing is perfect. If a device ever reached perfection, all further development would seize.

    Its like the difference between a safe family car and a performance car, a performance car is meant to be pushed to the limits and hence they are bound to break down and may be high maintenance, a family car is just used for basic commuting in everyday life so it has less risk of break down and maintenance. A Toyota Prius probably is never pushed hard and even if one tries its is simply not even possible with that kind of a vehicle but a Mitsubishi EVO on the other hand can be used for daily commute and when required can be pushed to the limits and can be entirely modified to get every bit of performance but in that process it might break down and could be higher maintenance than the Prius.

    Windows is a OS which can be used on any computer and Microsoft does not care or tell you that you have to use it on a specific brand or specification(although it sometimes recommends). MAC OS is just made for PC's made by apple and it is very unlikely some one over clocks a MAC or installs pirated games or installs pirated OS yet complains the OS sucks.People use windows based PC for benchmarking hardware and what not.

    From what i have experienced when used with proper components just for every day use with no fiddling around windows is as reliable or even better than any apple PC.

    True man. For me Mac causes more troubles. It may also be because I have been bred in Windows ecosystem. So Windows is easier to fix for me. Mileage may vary for each individual.
    First day on my Mac I saw the Gray Screen of Death (If I may call it that).


    Thumbs up for Genelia :)

    Macs suck donkey bollocks, they are driving me insane. The worst part is all my arguements against not using them have been rejected. Argggghhhhh!!!!!
