  1. Umm not really dude.  I constantly was slapping the shit out of my MBP.  The only reason I didn't physically damage it was because of the amount I spent on the thing.  Selling it and going back to an Alienware gaming rig was the best decision I made.  I've come to the firm conclusion Mac's HATE me.  I took my MBP into the Apple store and stumped the shit out of the geniuses there.  Never had they seen a system where when you went to shut down the system it wouldn't shut down, but simply go to the command line.  GUI went away, acted as if it was shutting down, but would dump out to the command line.  You couldn't execute any commands.  But you could type to your heart's content.
    After 3 years and 2 MBP's (4 repairs on the 1st, 3 on the second.) I called it quits and went back to a PC and an early Beta of Windows 7.  Even then I was so much happier it wasn't even funny.  Never again.  I will never touch a Mac or Apple product ever again in this lifetime….hell not in the next either if I have any say in it.

    • Assuming macs follow the normal upstart levels, most likely it wasn't going to runlevel 0…  Sounds like to me the command it was running was equivalent of shutdown which doesnt actually power off the system, but just shuts down the OS and drops you to a kernel prompt.. If the "geniuses" had any knowledge of the underlying system (Unix) they probably could of figured it out. This is why I use Linux.. im smart enough to figure out most of its problems on my own and don't need to rely on a company with poorly trained associates

      • This is why I switched back to Windows.  When a problem occurs in Windows I KNOW how to crawl up its *** with the best of them.  I tried Mac and OS X because I wanted to try something different.  Never again.

  2. Actually, punching my macbook was the sole thing that fixed it once it started fritzing.

    • I think it was the AppleIII that had a issue with hot "motherboard". This would warp the board, and unseat some chips. If one called the support line, the suggested quick fix was to lift the computer a couple of inches and drop it.

  4. Macs garbage PC wins, the pic on the left should be a guy playing frisbee fetch with his dog using a macbook and the pic on the right a guy sitting peacefully at his computer enjoying the wonders of non-mac technology…

  5. Lol sh! The pictures too true.. if you wanted to make it more accurate the Mac user would be doing something creative like Photoshop or Garageband and PC user would be a spotty fat kid lurking on 4chan! XD

  6. I think people are interpreting this wrong – look at it this way

    The Mac user is carrying his metaphorical PC, it is him doing the work to keep it alive

    Everyone else is utilising their metaphorical PC, the results speak for themselves

    Though I myself would envisage me in a wrestling match with my Windows Laptop, maybe a tug-of-war pulling it the way I want to go.

  8.  Let's thank all of the genius Mac users who have nothing better to do than tear down PC users. I think paying 2-3x the price for a Mac versus a similarly spec'd. PC because it has an Apple with a chunk taken out of it for a logo is really smart. I also am grateful that there aren't viruses on Macs ever (bullshit lies from Steve Handjobs) I also hate being able to use software that isn't completely approved by Apple…

    • macs only have fewer viruses because they aren't nearly as prevalent. When you walk into a bank or hospital, whose system are they running?

    • Yeah because people who use something other than Mac cannot be graphical designers and surely couldn't be a pixel artist or game designer. Oh wait sorry WTF am I doing then clearly I should be a douche and by a Mac even though my Qosmio runs faster and smoother than any Mac I've used and hasn't had a problem yet unlike any Mac I've used. (even if I did I could actually fix it… unlike a stupid bloody Mac)
      I love my computer so this comic is pretty much just a stereotypical lie.
      As Artful states how narrow-minded.

  10. Of course the Mac user has the robot on his back–it owns his butt, LOL. You know good and well Apple owns your soul completely.

    >.> Check the barcode on your butt.
