yeah obviously. What I mean is that if you have a mac you pretty much never get a virus or freeze up whereas on the PC you get 'em all the time. Not saying it's impossible, just improbable.
I think I've gotten one freeze up on a mac over a time where my PC has gotten a whole bunch.
We have macs where I work and I have at least one major issue a week...be it the rainbow death wheel when I'm trying to save something or the comp just deciding to move hella slow for no apparent reason. It was the exact same thing in my high school and college graphics classes.
I got a pirated version of photoshop for PC from a friend in order to finish some projects for a photography class I had last year because i got sick of the damn macs in the lab freezing up and crashing when I'd try to save things. This version wasn't even the latest version, but I didn't have a single problem with it and it passed the class easily.
In fact, I've had my HP laptop for a little over 2 years now, never a major problem. Got Avast! and I haven't had a single virus issue either. My roommate 2 years ago had some little problem with his mac and had to send it away for a few weeks to get fixed because the computer repair place in town doesn't deal with macs. I had a great gaming desktop at the time me and some of my friends put together, and it literally caught fire....not even joking....not even hyperbole...it actually caught fire on the inside...I took it to that same store and they had it working in 2 days.
Macs just aren't worth it to me, and how they get away saying same of things they advertise about them without getting nailed by some kind of false advertising is beyond me. Between the ones I've used for work, class and the one's people around me have had, they've all had some major issue that I've never had with any of my pc's. (Besides the one that caught fire, but that was me and friends fault for putting it together kind of screwy....hardware issue...)
Blegh......that was too off topic. Funny picture time:
