We are not going to focus on game consoles (considering Apple does not have a home console... yet, but even if they did the 360 would still win). We shall focus on computers, software, portable media players, and the company as a whole. Which one do you think is better? Which one do you dislike? Why?

Neither is very good, Zune is okay though

iPods and iPhones are utter garbage. Hell the only reason the iPhone is doing well is because of the brand name and apps stuff. The actual talking quality itself is sub par lol. And every person i know who has had an iPod had it crap out on them. (irony but the 360 is beast and has a great warranty unlike iPods)

Macintosh is good though, but crap for gaming lol.

Windows and Zune Marketplace are good though, so Microsoft is better.

Man I agree with you about the iPhone's talking quality. I personally like iPods, that is their best product I think. I like Microsoft better though, I think a lot of people judge Microsoft too harshly, but they do not judge Apple, I judge Apple all the time. If Microsoft is evil than Apple is just as evil as Microsoft. Apple also apparently hates games (leaked by an employee). So I say screw Apple for that, they should be my enemy for THAT!

Apple makes good products but they cost too much and you can't configure or build them yourself.

With PC you can build it from the ground up and there are limitless possibilities in software and hardware.

I absolutely despise apple even though i love the iPod (yes i know its weird).
The reason? because they basically monopolised the market for music player and that is never a good thing. They have created a large and loyal fanbase when they were releasing good products and now are taking advantage of that by releasing mediocre products (iPad) with the knowledge that there will be a heap of people that buy them.

Thankfully, I have not scummed to their messed up ways.

I have used MS PCs a lot before, I would rather have a PC. But its the schools Mac and its free so... XD. But I would pick Microsoft in most industries but I probably would get an iPod Touch as a gaming machine. Though I still would want a Zune.....

Same here. When I picture a Mac, I picture a damn hipster.

Just remember folks.... MS does not make the PC.... In this case they make the Operating System to most PC, with the exception of Linux.

Apple Hardware is beyond bad, the inability to upgrade drives me nuts.

Apple just got lucky with their iPod, eve in the Creative Zen was miles ahead of it in quality and sound.

Mac's are just custom designed computers with crappy hardware, which leads to the overprice.

Mac's are usually owned by design and video people, even if a PC for the same price is almost twice as good.

Microsoft is a software company with some hardware, they have made the single most important move in recent history. Creating something that is used in almost every home, the home computer (IBM and MS).


So, in my opinion, Mac/Apple is an accessory for an weird person, most likely a designer.
If you are more in to using the computer, then you have to use Linux.
And if you want everything to work with it, you use Windows.

But since they make the Xbox... I guess I have to say Microsoft by a long way... Even if i like Linux more.
