I don't understand Windows users 617
No - the straw man you propose where you suggest when someone states:
I'm looking for a good computer.
A Mac advocate would suggest:
I don't understand Windows users 618
Snit 11:58 AM: more man That's not a "straw man," and you've just reaffirmed you have no idea at all what a straw man argument is. would give. In you opinion, but then whatever resememblence...
Spend more money!
That has nothing to do with the actual answer most Mac advocates would give.
You made it up.
You created a weaker - and silly - statement so you could point out the weakness. You created a straw man.
In doing so, you lied - *twice*
Once when you state that Mac advocates, as a whole, would suggest someone spend more money, and the second time when you claim Macs are, in general, more expensive than the primary alternative - Windows.
Keep in mind - if you can - that the comment you make is:
Computer Shopper: I'm looking for a good computer. Mac Advocate: Spend more money! Buy a Mac instead of a PC
Which has nothing to do with buying a Play Station or VPC or a real PC. Once someone suggests people buy more, then you *may* have a point about spending more money - depending on the details of the situation.
I snipped the parts where I had no great disagreement with you. Would you prefer I keep them in and make no comment - just to make the post longer?
OsX compared to Linux and BeOS 620
On 2-12-05 11:56 AM, in article I think it all depends upon how much money you are willing to shell out...
You pretend like I have *anything* to do with those comparisons... other than reporting them. As I have said, if you have others to add, let me know and I will happily do so. As you can see on the site, I have some that show Macs as being more expensive... though most show the Mac being the same or less... as one would expect if one has any experience in the computer industry and is honest.
