Why does this offend you? Consumer products should not be the marker for your identity. That is shallow.
Also, please try to read. I did not ridicule anyone. To think that everyone has to have the same opinion is foolish. Think harder. I am sorry there is no other solution for you.
no one said its a marker for their identity, but EVERYONE has a brand preference which is the norm, but if you don't agree with this then it's YOU who has a problem.. sorry but you did indirectly ridicule people perhaps not intentionally but that's how it came out... as for a solution no one is asking for any solutions , just stating their opinions just look at us mods who have to deal and sift through tons of threads/posts of macs VS MS or ipads VS SP3 or this VS that and it gets frustrating because some people over react and then start arguments... which is what we are trying to avoid.. it's fine that you prefer this device over another but at least have some logical and valid points and just don't make up stuff lol
