A turret with extended range, that's immune to sappers, but is stuck at level 1.

The only reason why people don't bother hacking or dropping viruses on Macs is because they don't have jack crap on them.
I HATE MACs
about 14 years ago
So once more people start using macs, all you will have is a bunch of programs you paid for that you didn't need, even worse that pre-made PCs and windows, that you can't upgrade, and mac can only fix, and has viruses. Hope you enjoy your investment.
I HATE MACs

[url=#user_comment_33135]@Armory[/url]: I sold Mac products for 5 years in retail stores and I have spoken to professors and anyone who knows about macs and computer viruses knows that only reason they don't have viruses for macs is because so much fewer people use mac computers. If more people did, more would build mac viruses.

[url=#user_comment_33135]@Armory[/url]: I looked into buying a Mac that could support rendering for Maya 2010/3D Max suite. I found that the difference between them was that Macs were $500 more and came with a bunch of even more extra stuff I didn't need. I got to college for my animation degree and all they use there are Macs.

Just a small detail: Macs are not "immune to sappers"
In fact, a hacker clearly stated that Macs have almost no security at all because they didn't need it so far, and that there are viruses for them..and pretty soon they'll be in deep trouble.

Macs are not any better than PCs, in-fact they are worse. The only thing good about them is that they don't get viruses and are slightly, very slightly, better at digital art. The ONLY reason they don't get viruses is because NO ONE USES THEM! So people don't bother making viruses for them.

PCs can be made cheap, and what could of been a PC for cheap, could be loaded with whatever that new Mac OS is called. Nothing against the operating system, but those pre-made Mac computers have absolutely horrific value. The laptops are expensive too, but then again, they're laptops.

Going by the standard Apple markup scheme (+100% then round up to the nearest 'nice' number), the Mac Sentry would cost 375 metal. If anything, targeting range would be decreased due to undervolted components and below-par optical input. Gun sacrifices power for quiet operation.

Why do you even have to bother with which one is better? Macs were not made for gaming, PCs were. Yet there are still games for Macs so that way the gaming world would be equalized and all those with Macs don't have to get their ass up, go to a computer store, and buy a PC.

Here's an interesting article that compares the two. Anyway, I apologize for coming off as a fanboy, but I just get tired of PC fanboys acting like their preference is the end-all/be-all with everything, including gaming.

I use a Mac Pro tower with Boot Camp. It's different from other macs, I swear! I can still upgrade it... as long as the hardware is supported on OSX.

*sigh* I really just want to build my own PC so that I can play games in DX11. The only reason I got the mac is for Final Cut. Stop persecuting me!

Macs are nice. Macs have less strength then a PC but they use it more efficiently. The thing is they cost a crap load more then a PC and are only worth it if you can get it for a "Steal" of a price ;) If ya know what im sayin.

The Mac vs PC thing has always hit me as a misnomer. The acronym PC stands for "Personal Computer." So, a person that owns a Mac computer owns and uses it personally, making it their "Personal Computer." But I suppose "UNIX Based PC" vs "Windows Based PC" doesn't quite roll off the tongue.
