Mac buyer's remorse?

    So, my computer died today and I had to get a new one. I'd talked for a while about getting a Mac, but they're quite expensive, and when it comes down to it, probably outta ol' Fuerte's price range. I found a HP that was pretty cheap, comparatively at least. In the end, I decided to go with the Mac.

    And now, hours later, I'm feeling like I screwed myself, like I should have gone with the cheaper HP. I know PC's better than I do Mac's, but so many people have talked about how great Mac's are.

    Is my buyer's remorse unfounded or reasonable?

    Unfuckingfounded. Macs are God.

    I want to punch you just for having remorse over this.

    It's the jealousy speaking as I type on a shitty Dell. Nothing personal.

    Nothing personal taken. Just, you know, when you don't have a lot of money to spend and don't really know Macs, you just wonder. It's early. I've had it only, like, 8 hours. And I've been at work for about 5 of those.

    Not my fault Dells are the Ford Escorts of the computer world.

    I'm sorry. That was unfair. To the Ford Escort.

    Macs are great, sez me.
    I bought a $2,900 system with OS 10 and a 24-inch screen and its been wonderful.
    THere were immediate support groups that I tapped into and we even have monthly meetings
    Macs are great, and there are never, ever any viruses.
    I have my own website, photo and video and DVD production capability.
    The list goes on and on about how good Macs can be for a potential buyer.

    A day later, and yeah, I've really begun to realize this. D'oh. Guess no going back now. It's mine. Better get used to having no money and using a computer that's about like my old one was as far as power. We call this a learning experience in the real world. Lesson learned.

    As a longtime Mac user, I'll offer this.

    I've been using the same Powerbook G4 since March 2002 without a single service issue.

    How many Dells have most "Volkswagen" drivers gone through in that same span?

    I love using my Mac, but I hate the TV ads.


    Die, consumerist psuedo-hipster asshole on the right, die. I find it funny that I'm smack dab in the middle of the demographic that they're trying to reach, but I hate the ads.

    You'll enjoy your Mac, I hope. I find them much easier to use and more reliable. I haven't let the weird Macophilic subculture of Mac-worship spoil my computer for me.
