My 2009 MacBook Pro runs just as good today as it does the day I bought it. And my computer is used everyday mostly all day for school. I live with an IT tech for UNLV and he loves Apple products, but only uses PCs to test them for future faculty purchases. Essentially faculty are allowed to purchase whichever computer they want and most choose PCs for the computing and statistical capabilities. So unless you're doing structural equation modeling on a regular basis, go with Apple.

Common, this debate is stupid... Which views porn and offroad race videos the best?

Hola everyone! Geez... Don't pop in for a day or so and I gotta read like 3 pages of BJ's, wheels, PVC's (whatever the heck those are- I'm not cool like Andy and looking 'em up... Yet.) and computers.

S to toss in my 2 cents on the Mac vs PC issue. In my experience the biggest reason PC's have issues are because of bloat ware and malware/virus'. Not a lot of folks run Macs (by comparison) so there isn't as many people creating software issues for them... plus it seems to be a more stable and intuitive platform. The downsides are the aforementioned expense, lack of compatibility with some isolated programs (though there are PC emulators for Mac's for those die hards), not as wide of aftermarket goodies, and people thinking your a yuppie. All that being said, I am cheap and run a PC, and it runs just as fast as it does the day I finished building it... I just don't load crap onto it that I don't need, plus I stay away from porn sites and other suspicious sites. If you want your PC running fast again, wipe it then load a bare bones non bloat ware version of WIN7 and you're good to go.

Honestly, I don't know much about computers. I know enough to get by, and load software I buy. I use it for online banking, heavy photo and video editing, watching hours and hours of porn, the occasional movie, youtube, and simple software that's not big on graphics or computing power. I am really tired of waiting for my system to open pictures and when it freezes have to wait, close windows, reboot, etc. I would not know how to build my own system and have a hard enough time figuring out how to get rid of programs I don't use. I end up effing up something that the system needs and get notifications every time I fire it up. I really am computer ignorant. I don't really want to spend a lot of money right now, so I I can fix/upgrade my current system, great. If I have to though, I want to get a sick system that can be good for a long time, with room to grow.

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

This right here is why your computer slows down. Most porn sites are riddled with viruses and mal-ware. I know it sounds stupid, but if you are going to check out porn, get a cheap computer and dedicate it to that. Load it up with a good anti-virus and anti-malware and wipe it clean every so often. Don't use the same computer for online banking or anything of that sort and make sure you have a good firewall. I guarantee if you do that you will notice a huge speed difference between the one you look at porn on and the computers you don't.

Huge thanks goes out the Terry for an awesome deal on a set of Moabs. Thanks to Khris for a ride in your truck. In case you guys were wondering, it is the smoothest Offroad ride I have ever taken and 60 MPH Offroad is fun as hell!

I actually just included it to make everyone happy. I generally watch my porn on my phone so I can run one out on the move!

Boring? I have never experienced anything like that! Roller coasters are fun, sky diving is fun, scuba diving is fun. That was not fun, that was a freaking blast!

Better be careful, read an article today that said mobile devices are the fastest growing source of malware.
