    I bought a macbook pro! It's my first mac. In other news, pcs are equally cool. So lets not fight.

    No, not EQUALLY cool. WAAAAY more cool. PC is where it's at. I grew up learning on Mac. I hated it then, I hate it now. Blah. But, I'm a video gamer.

    Turns out you actually just got a pc with a funky bootloader.

    Hi Shoelace! You will be inked on my arm on Saturday. Can't wait ;)

    I prefer PC's because of gaming, but Macs are meant to be better for multimedia stuff like video editing and drawing tools etc.

    Wrong! PCs are at least twice as equal!

    "I bought a macbook pro! It’s my first mac. In other news, pcs are equally cool. So lets not fight." Amen, sistah! I only have PC's but I would love to get into Macs.

    I feel like I've just time traveled into the future to see Shoelace because the screen says you posted this on February 8 at 9:58 pm and I'm reading this on February 8 at 8:13 am! Shoelace = Master of Space-time!

    I grew up with Macs since my family was all about printing (typesetting, etc..) so they'll always feel like home to me but a nice PC isn't bad either! I'm glad I got a little Shoelace love this morning!

    I love your art. I love my Custom piece hanging in my living room and I love my Macbook pro.

    A Macbook is actually a PC (Personal Computer), you even can install Linux and/or Windows on it. It's a bit like say "this is a VW and this is a car". Booo apple marketing - hooray Shoolaces.

    Uh oh. It being a Mac means it's more shiny and therefore Li will be gone longer. (I don't care if it's Mac or PC - and yes, Macs are now PCs too, but I mean the conventionally defined PC - but if I got a new Mac, I would definitely play with that a lot longer.) -strokes shiny aluminum chassis-

    agreed, the value of a computer comes from what you do with it and will change depending on who is using it. "PC" or "Mac" (or "Android" or "iOS") does not make the device inherently better or worse than any other with a different label. That said, Yay new toy to play with!! :) And I totally went "Awwww" at the shoelace comic. :) :)

    I am all in favor of Shoelace drawing a comic for a week. Shiny toys are shiny though - enjoy the Macbook. :P

    Shoelace, I find your work very inspired. Who is a good kitty? You are!

    Windows: You can install it on any computer, but you have to buy a new license for each computer. Nearly all computer games support it. Mac OS X: You can only use it on Macs. Some games support it. Linux: Can be installed on any computer or server for free, any number of times. You can also recreate the OS as you see fit. Very few commercial games support it. I use both Windows 7 and Arch Linux regularly, and plan to buy a Macbook Pro soon for video work. I like all these operating systems, though Linux is my favorite.

    Sorry to break it to you Li but... you bought an imposter Mac. It has a circle on the cover.

    I bought my Macbook Pro just before finals in college, it was not the smartest time to buy a new toy.

    Li, your comics are always a little burst of sunshine. If you ever go to any sort of webcomic convention, please put up a notice, because I'm sure everyone would love to meet you! Also, congrats on the Mac. They're preeeetty. ^_^

    Strange. Everyone here seems to have understood "not fight" to mean "please conduct a flame war, but keep it polite".

    I'm sorry to inform you Li, but we think Shoelace did a better job and will be taking over your comic blog. We thank you for many years of drawing and laughing service. Here is your watch, Goodbye.

    lograh's got it right: with computers, so long as it's Turing-complete (they all are, minus the infinite memory) and not painfully slow (I'm talking 20th century speeds, here), the limitation is always the user. Which OS I use or like is beside the point.

    Wait...is that Jens Jens or just some other Jens?

    Mac is more expensive for his overall power and just different from a PC. Nothing else to say about it. If you have the money and like it, you like it, if you don't, you don't.
