lol wat? macs are just for hipsters, there i said it
I fit in with the PC users profiles, but since I am older than the demographics they measured, maybe the "culture" doesn't apply so much. I switched to Mac before there was Windows, back when there really was a huge difference in usability. Never saw a reason to switch back.
Paid for by the people for Steve Jobs for President.
Mac people are 21% more likely to consider themselves computer-savvy. Not according to the tech support calls I take.
well it does say "consider" :)
I think they are confusing "computer savvy gear head" for "I buy it because it's colourful and/or trendy"
0% of PC people are likely to wait in line in front of a store at 3 am for the latest marginally-useful-but-highly-overpriced gadget shat out by overlord Jobs.
LoL… I was thinking the same thing…
FreeBSD users are 98% more likely than either group to say that statistics like these don't mean shite.
I'm pretty sure that PC people "are more likely to say talking about computers is akin to 'struggling with a foreign language" is more likely in reference to when talking about computers with a Mac person or less experienced PC person.
What can we say? We don't let marketing into the decision making loop when it comes to naming computer processes and hardware. We call it a formatting program, not iClean.
Haha I was about to say that, about Macs being for hipsters. Indie films? Hummus? 80% VEGETARIAN?! Also, they shoulda had a vegan stat for the Mac users. That would've been pretty high too
It makes me sad that Mac users think of themselves as more computer-savvy, but PCs cover a wider demographic, and a lot of the elitist computer geniuses use Linux anyway
Actually, it didn't say 80% of Mac users are vegetarians. It said they're 80% more likely than PC users to be vegetarians. I think that means if there are 10 PC users who are vegetarians, there'd be 18 Mac people who are vegetarians… or something like that. Not totally certain. I hate math. :P
But yeah, this really solidified my belief that Mac computers control their owners brains, forcing them to wear a fedoras and skinny jeans and those thick rimmed eye glasses whether they have poor vision or not.
Your math is correct.
and linux ones ? lmao

yep…I am definatly a PC person
I have a Mac at home and use a PC at work. I find both work very well.
I am 50% confused why there is such weird animosity between users of a product.
When was the last time you called someone a hipster d-bag for preferring Coke over Pepsi?
I really *HATE* when people associate "PC" with "Windows". And don't get me started on the fact that Mac computers *ARE* PCs too… ¬¬
Holy Bias, Batman.
Also, Mac users just self-identified as hipsters.
(Note: I'm a "meh, whatever" person.)
So, in conclusion really, Mac userS are either stablished designers of some sort, young annoying hipsters, or both… XD
Biased infographic is biased.
Hipsters don't drink Coke, Pepsi, or any other soft drink anybody's ever heard of.
they drink Jones Soda ™ or some other over priced beverage
no pseudo break down on the "neither" colum?
<–BeOS & Linux mainly
I love how the percentages are twisted to make Mac users look cooler: 71% of PC people prefer jeans vs. Mac's 18% chic & 14% retro. Let's see 100% – 18% – 14% = 68% of Mac users who aren't hip.
I'm a PC person…
Let's see…I'm libertarian, don't feel like I have to fit in with the crowd and love being unique, love modern design (and "Dwell" magazine, at least parts of it), am vegetarian, love hummus (and veggie wraps with hummus!), and am 20 years old.
Statistics are interesting…but you have to be careful not to stereotype! :)
