mac is better than windows
Debate Rounds (3)
Mac - Any x86-Based (to exclude mobile devices) computing device created by apple
PC - Any Non-GSM (to exclude mobile devices) capable devices, that are not embedded devices, that have unlocked bootloaders, that are not created by apple.
Regardless of poor wording, the intent of the above is to exclude all phones, and tablets (with locked bootloaders) as well as embedded devices.
But first in addition to the aforementioned definitions I will be providing "assumptions" that I propose simply for the purpose of argument.
The first is that the targeted audience that we are speaking of, in terms of "superiority, is the low-high-end user, low being Chromebooks or other UMPC's such as the Nokia N900 or the raspberry pi, the high end being enthusiast PC's with latest generation i7's and SLI/Crossfire, that is made from parts. In addition to that audience, I assume we are also targeting the server audience, from the low-end to the enterprise-end user. Low end, being a home DNS server running on a raspberry pi, High end being whole floors filled with racks of high-end servers, used to serve thousands-millions-billions of customers/consumers around the world.
For fairness to my opponent, I will assume that a "hackintosh" PC does not count as a "Mac" or as a "PC" and is irrelevant to this argument. In response I ask that the equivalent, Linux on a Mac, does not count as a "Mac" or a "pc" and is just as irrelevant. Seeing as both are "exploits/(I hate to use this word but...)hacks"
Now on to my contentions.
My first contention is that PC's are a better value than Macs.
See my first piece of evidence: http://i.imgur.com......
And my second: http://i.imgur.com......
As is clear, for the even LESS than the Mac I, I got a PC that was FAR superior in power to that Mac, packaged with 680 bags of cookies, (my favorite cookies too :D ), 7,200 pop tarts, 1,450 bags of hot cheetos, 2250 bags of lays, and 1300 bags of regular cheetos. I believe my point has been made.
My second contention is that PC's are more freedom-respecting, than macs.
Macs, are locked down. On a Mac, I cannot access the EFI. My inability to access the EFI leads to:
My inability to overclock my CPU.
My inability to change the boot order of a mac.
My inability to boot from a live cd/usb/removable storage.
My inability to ... (the following are inabilities related to RAID
Put my computer in Raid 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 10, 0+1 and pretty much every other minor raid level except for the major
levels, 0 and 1, and the minor JBOD raid.
Mac does have limited games the majority of games are Windows only Mac is not built for games it is built for work and also Mac does not record well for that you need a PC not a mac.
They don't record very well as I have stated Mac is a work computer not a gaming computer.
You have to also buy movies and music from iTunes Store but also Windows has 10 times for free software then mac and on top of that there is way more games that are free to download then Mac will ever have.
Windows also is free to update but not upgrade same as Mac os.
Now you claim Windows does not update well sir you a
Have never been so wrong Windows does update for you all you need to do is click install update and hey presto it's updating.
You have only presented false information about Windows can do everything you claim it can't you sir are so wrong and all of those claims have been dismissed due to false information.
