DON’T Get a Mac!

September 19, 2008 at 10:57 PM 31 comments


In this post I will describe how TOUGH it is to install an Apple iMac. I will also compare it with how EASY it is to install a PC. πŸ™‚ Now that I am done with the introduction, I shall continue with the post. πŸ™‚

How to install a PC?

Installing a PC is the easiest thing that can be done regarding computers. How? Simple. Follow these very simple steps and you will know:

  1. Find a suitable place to keep your PC. I think a table, some place below it for the CPU and a little ventilation so that the very small amount of wires don’t get knotted. πŸ™‚
  2. After that is done, open all the components and then place them on the places you have allotted. Simple isn’t it?
  3. Now just connect the wires to their respective ports(sockets). Don’t worry, no technicalities here. Even a 9 year old can figure out the shapes where they have to be connected. Simple, ain’t it? πŸ™‚ Wait there’s only a little bit more.
  4. Now get the Operating system installation CD and insert it into the CD tray. Now wait for the setup to initialize. Initialization is done entirely by the computer itself! :O
  5. Follow the VERY simple steps and install the operating system onto your computer. There! You are now ready to use your new PC.

Oh wait, there is just a small bit I forgot to mention. You need to download/buy the respective softwares required by you to chat or browse the net. I know! Simple, isn’t it? πŸ˜€

Now we come to installing an iMac:

Follow these directions very carefully. They can be forgotten very easily. The order is most important.

  1. Find a large enough place to keep it. Remember, it has to be large enough to accommodate an approximately 1.5 inch thick monitor(screen). I know, these terms are so hard to remember. Right? Then comes the place for a keyboard and a mouse. Wait, where are the wires? ONLY 3 WIRES? What a waste! Paying THAT much for just 3 pieces of hardware and 3 wires? Anyway, continuing the installation.
  2. Now starts the toughest part. All these pieces of equipment come in a single box. How cramped is that? Very tough to unpack!
  3. Remove the packaging covers. Very tough again. Place the equipments in the allotted place(if you could make that much place).
  4. Connect the power chord to the monitor and the power supply. WHAT? I have to do that? After that is done connect the keyboard and the mouse. I won’t say anything. You figure out how to connect those.
  5. Then switch on the computer. The power button is so hard to reach! Its below the monitor and behind it!
  6. Some shitty video plays and says you are now ready to use your new iMac. Wait a minute! No installation required? How good will THAT work? Why the hell did they give me the installation CD? Un-answerable questions.
  7. Now it wants to take a picture of you so that you can use it as a display pic for your user-name. I have to get ready for a picture now? SHIT!
  8. At last its done! You are now all set to explore the internet with already installed softwares. Good luck!

Now THAT is how tough it is to install an iMac. If you still find this guide insufficient, you can watch the video I have provided. πŸ™‚

This post involves a LOT of sarcasm. Please bear with it. And finally with no sarcasm involved, GET A MAC! πŸ˜€ πŸ™‚ πŸ˜›

    HEY!!! Nice to have you commenting on my blog! I AM using Ubuntu v8.04 at the moment. But still a mac is better than a PC. πŸ™‚ I don’t deny that open-source also rules. But according to me iMac first, Linux next. πŸ™‚

    Hey Congratulations on becoming a Mac user and welcome to the Mac club! I am a Mac user myself and have a 17 inch 1st gen Intel iMac. I figured this post was going to be sarcasm. When I showed my iMac to my friends this is what happened:
    – They were surprised to see DVD popping in and out of the thin side.
    – They were frantically looking for a CPU tower while It was all in the Monitor itself.
    – They were surprised as shit to see there is a video camera already on the monitor witha tiny hole nearby for Microphone.
    It is very neat and easy to use.

    I am not an iMac user… YET! This was my friend’s new iMac. He wanted me to come and “Install” it for him as he didn’t know how to. Huh? πŸ˜€ After he actually opened the package, he realized his kid sister could have done the job. I had fun using it though. πŸ˜€ πŸ™‚

    @Dinesh
    I know! And Mighty Mouse. How can we forget that? And the 0.5 inch(?) thick keyboard? πŸ˜€

    @vimal
    Yeah! I am a master of sarcasm! πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

    But I better be supporting Open Source than those bloated hideous EULA clad stale apples and broken windows.

    Yup Apple is getting more evil than windows now, imagine there is no bluetooth in iPhone as it may give some chance to transfer copyrighted data to other devices. Then if it was not bad they imposed DRM too.

    Me and mah linux rocks. And for that Dell is the deal. Why pay double the price to get a closed black box of which you are not sure that you completely own it or there is a contract.

    Welcome to “Care to take a Look?”. Apple themselves have accepted iPhone is their least successful and least powerful. And I am not talking about an iPhone here. There are however, many people who hate paid software. But then, none provide near perfection like Apple. Try an iMac and then comment on it. I accept Linux is awesome. But it still is not as effective as Mac OSX.

    Yup MAC is awesome but do care to read their EULA before, i guess if people start reading their EULA then nobody will buy them.

    Creativity is all about hiding your sources !

    And by perfection, its not that you can do same as a professional graphic designer can. Even when you are given tools like photoshop or so. It takes some effort and talent on your own to make anything.

    For normal home users it makes no sense to shell out double the price for the thing which can be done with half of that. Of course if its a question of looking cool and you have millions then go on.

    The thing is that its really hard to show whats wrong with it to any one without explaining some technical jargon. So no one bothers.

    Apple rules! There is a reason why their goods are better than others. It’s because the rest SUCK!

    @T
    Apple is not for the domestic user. I do know that. But let me ask you something. Would you be willing to buy just any MP3 player or an iPOD? πŸ™‚

    I will buy a Cowon N3, ipod and other apple products do look good but they are crippled.

    You have to convert every format and then you cant use it without iTunes. Such a tool. Even the audio quality is no more great.

    Its like that we have a common notion that iPOD = PMP. Hunt on web and you can actually find many good alternatives which suit your taste and lifestyle.

    Mac is for people who like to
    -right click copy
    -right click paste..
    -who prefer good looks over everything else..
    -who have a lot of free time, especially bosses who expect MSExcel to have a built in washing machine in its next upgrade… πŸ˜›

    not for ppl
    – who operate everything using the keyboard in Windows.
    – who like to prefer spending your money wisely
    – who are gamers!!

    of course, its not as bad as I make it sound, but Apple is not for awesomeppl/gamers/hackers/geeks, but gifting it to your girlfriend will make her go crazy πŸ˜€

      AYE!!! I was crazy about a Mac when I wrote this post. But as the saying goes… Things change, people change. Similarly, times changed, I got smarter. πŸ˜› A Mac actually does everything to cripple a user by forcing you to use only their products.
