    Well, I'm sure if you looked hard enough you could find a game of the RPG genre that wasn't made very well (I'm not saying anything for/against MC, just games in general).


    True.

    I'm pretty sure he was just mocking people who use the "rpg" argument.


    It still doesn't change the fact that "RPG" and "Lame" not belonging in the same sentence is concrete fact.

    I have to say, the op is a complete and utter loser.

    First he says the Minecraft is dead. No.

    Then he says that the Ender dragon is the end of the game. No. If you read the text before the credits after beating the dragon, you would find out that Notch and Jeb were talking metaphorically. They said they would hope that they would be able to expand onto the game even farther, adding more bosses, more dimensions, etc.

    RPG = LAME


    No, RPG's are not lame. Millions of people that have bought TW2 and Skyrim disagree.

    posted a message on Will these fit in my case?
    I know for a fact it will fit.

    I own 2 hp elites, and one has a 4850 in it, which is 10.5 inches long. I have approximately 2 inches of room left.

    If the psu is as long as a standard psu than it will fit.

    Can you take a pic of the inside of the case?

    How is 4:3 format superior to a 16:9 format or a 16:10 format?


    Our eyes scan textual information vertically much more efficiently. That's why books are not formatted in 16:10. In fact, they are even narrower than 4:3. Or look at newspaper columns. They're very long and narrow, because it's easiest to read information quickly in that format. So for all of the things that people normally do on computers, i.e. wordprocessing, programming, surfing the internet, email, IM, for all these things 4:3 is better. You want as many lines of information as possible, not as long lines as possible.

    How do Macs at the most 3 years? Mine's 4 years old. How is it bad quality? Only thing bad on mine is just the fact the graphics card is low end, I'm not going to defend Apple for doing that, they should've put a better one in :sad.gif:. I have a 2007 MacBook, so if something's bad on it, tell me, and based on why you say it's bad I may or may not believe you that it's low end and bad quality:

    My Macintosh Specifications:
    2007 MacBook - OS X Lion
    Processor - 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    Memory - 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    Graphics - Intel GMA X3100 144 MB (I already know this isn't a good one)
    Harddrive - 500 GB SATA Disk
    Display - 13.3-inch (1280 x 800)

    A $1,200 Mac can do more that a $400 PC just as much as a higher end PC could do, other then the OS you get on Mac. And based on your opinion, the Mac would be worse because of low quality.


    Well, for starters lets talk about your display. Just about how much did your computer cost you? My Lenovo t60p cost 500$, and has a 4:3, which is superior to widescreen, at 1600x1200, with a Radeon Mobility Firegl v5200, which is a high end cad card. I also have a core 2 duo t2600 at 2.2. The laptop is from 2005.

    I never said Macs were cheaper, or cost the same. It's like this:

    1 Mac lasts a minimum of 7 years (this is from my entire family experience with all our Macs)

    1 PC lasts a minimum of 3 years. I'll be nice that way. You'll probably end up having to buy 2 over the course of 7 years.

    My dad used to work for a highschool, and his classroom had 25 Macs and 25 PCs. All the PCs had to be replaced every year, after being repaired multiple times. None of the Macs had problems or had to be replaced until they were three years old. This is what happens even when highschoolers who don't really give a crap about the computers use the Macs/PCs. The same kids did not use the same computer every time. They all used both the Macs and PCs. He worked there 6 years, and the same results every time.

    Just so you know, I'm not this kid who knows exactly how good every processor/graphics card/ harddrive is. I just know from experience Macs work better, and can actually run video. I mean seriously, my PC couldn't even when it was brand new. "Ironically", my Mac, older than the PC, runs video just fine.

    You guys are all coming from a gaming perspective, that's what's making you think Macs are horrible. Come out of your shell and realize what other things computers can actually do.

    Um, fm87, is your signature talking about your computer?


    No, Macs last at the most 3 years, the hardware used in them is very low end, and is of horrible quality. Just because it comes in a case with a copyrighted name, doesn't make it of good quality, high performance, or long lasting.

    What exactly can a 1200 dollar mac do that a 400 dollar pc cant?
    Quote from Manithro

    I must be no one then, and also my family, and a lot of people I know.
    Nice computer, about the same as mine.


    Macs are less than 5% of the computer market in the real world. Businesses don't use them, they aren't used for servers, autocad, etc. They are used by kids who think that looks are everything, and by adults who think they are "fast, etc.".

    They're made with the same parts as PCs, but Apple takes a ton more time making them look better, and just put them together better. This can't be proven except by experience. PCs do have more bang for your buck, but they don't last as long, but that's also only proven by experience.

    Fact: My family has yet to own a Mac to last under 7 years.

    Fact: My family has yet to own a PC to last 7 years. I'm not sure, but I'm not even sure one has reached 3 years before.


    You are a ****ing idiot. I have a HP Pavilion Elite from 1995. Gtfo this forum.

    Fact: 56 of the macs in my school have gone bad, either from dropping, errors, or kids fooling around.

    Fact: Nothing has ever happened to any of the pcs with windows xp on them.

    Processor is very weak especially at that price graphics card is as bad that whole build is terrible for the price. Your going to have to speed like 800$ to get a good prebuilt and maybe 700$ if you build your self depending on what games. A computer to run minecraft fine is like 450$ custom built.


    You must be a nimrod. A x4 965 is just fine. Its one of the higher end amd cpus. Horrible, hah! Your pretty funny.

    Op: The case, psu, and gpu are pretty low end. You might want to look into replacing them yourself if you buy this.

    Didn't necessarily mean stuff from the sun. :smile.gif:

    What about gamma radiation from a supernova? Oversized asteroids in our very own solar system?


    The closest star besides the sun is millions of light years of way and the supernova will deteriorate before it gets here, making it easier for our ozone layer to shield us from it.
