Who sees my iMac in my office at home? I buy apple products because they are better. Better made and work in conjunction with each other much more effectively. I could buy a really nice windowd PC, an awesome samsung galaxy, and a great android tablet. Hook them all up with a western digital hard drive to backup manually and a linksys router. But I like convenience, I like not having to maintain like I did in the pc world, and I don't mind paying extra for less stress and more time.



    Now my MacBook air, iPhones, and iPad- those suck. I bought those just so people could see them.



    Well said. Trolls / Apple haters it seems project their hatred /envy and some how twist this into a self delusion that people only buy Apple stuff to show them? Amazing.

    Tell me where someone said that for all Mac users?



    Some people buy Giorgi Armani for the quality (I had some glasses from them before) and a lot buy just because it's the brand to show off. That does NOT mean all do. I don't get the logic here...

    I'm surprised Best Buy would want to be associated with a company known for releasing underwhelming products like the iPhone 4S.



    Must be that Apple religion thing again!

    The last time I was in a Best Buy I went to the Apple section and the place was disgusting. The iPads were all scratched and smudged with greasy finger streaks. The table looked like it had not been cleaned in a month. I certainly didn't want to touch anything. Everything was out of place, crooked and there was nobody there. No salesperson or customers. It was just a very bad representation of Apple as a company.

    Best Buy is more like Worst Buy.



    If I worked for Apple I would insist that Apple personally staff their section of best buy, or pull out altogether. They employ such unimaginable idiots it's embarrassing.

    I agree 100%. I think best buy does Apple a huge disservice with the way they display and maintain the Apple section.

    Some people are ugly both on the inside and the outside.



    I don't make fun of people for their looks, unless they are also ugly on the inside, and my intention is to offend those kind of people.

    But citing sexual preference in a negative way is an Ad Homeniem as their sexual preferences doesn't really stick in a given situation....unless their sexual orientation directly affected something.
