MacCool (Mac users vs. PC users)


“Never ask what sort of computer a guy drives. If he’s a Mac user, he’ll tell you. If not, why embarrass him?”
Tom Clancy

What can I say? I own a Mac.

I know, I know. I already spread the news. However, I felt compelled to share one more time since our son sent an article including traits of a Mac user.

Based on research, it’s actually been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt (or at least speculated) that Mac users are cooler than people who own PCs. I sure hope my PC using husband reads this post.

Cooler because we eat vegetables, not meat. Wait a minute, no more burgers?

Cooler because we choose Vespa scooters over Harley’s motorcycles. Bye, bye flame-embossed wallet.  

Cooler because we dip our pita chips in hummus, the mushiest food on the planet.

I had keys in hand with plans for shopping at vintage stores and for a more youthful look, but stopped in my tracks when I read I’ll soon be lunching on tuna fish sandwiches.

So, what are researchers trying to tell me? That I spent my life savings on a laptop and still don’t fit in?

Ever feel like you let your laptop down?

WRite wHere I’m supposed to be – I have a better chance of belonging when I recognize I’m not defined by what I wear, what I drive or what I own. The list goes on. Fitting in begins when I close my Mac, take off my sunglasses, and accept who I see in the mirror. Now, that’s MacCool.

On the lighter side: I got a kick out of the article even though I’m an exception to the rule. I only bought a Mac trying to avoid viruses. My PC got sick a lot. However, I’m coming to understand the loyalty. Macs are cool.

    Kim Henson You’re so funny! I was excited to read the article until I found out I wasn’t any of the other cool stuff. Lol. But if you say so, I’m good with that ’cause you’re cool too.

  2. Got my Mac two years ago and LOVE it! Both of my daughters have Macs and LOVE them! Once we went Mac, we never went back. 😉 We do still have a PC desktop, and it is very sickly – exactly why I went Mac. I hope to replace the PC with a Mac someday, but, I don’t know, that might make me TOO cool! I might have to become vegetarian and ride a Vespa…not sure I can comply. 😉

    • I know what you mean, Anjana. So many rules. Who knew? It might be best to hang on to at least one PC to keep you grounded and able to eat meat. Love my Mac too, but I also love Harleys. What’s a girl to do?
