Ok, i have to say that the mac will win here. Just because dude is cute, does not mean his computer is sexy. We all know that a powerbook g4 is sexy looking, and an eye grabber. So if dell dude is just walking around the mall with a normal black dell laptop he is going to fail. Anyone else care to wager on the outcome?

If the Geniuses can get ahold of a new iMac, the Dude doesn't stand a chance.

the only down side is that the new iMac is not very mobile. To get the girls the mac guys may have to leave the apple store. Head to a Gap store or something. Find the girls in their natural habitat.

Well, here's one thing I've noticed about computer stores in general. If you go into a PC store, you will mostly see, well, geeks. Teenage homeboy gamer geeks, IT geeks, hobbyist geeks.

Now, if you go into a store the specializes in Macs, what do you see? Hmm, I usually see hot graphic artist tech-talking babes, sexy alterna-chick web dsigners and such. After all, where are you more likely to see Nitrozac?

Actually, I rarely see geeks at PC stores.

Most of them orover-worked underpaid, bored-out-of-their-minds looking people.

They would sometimes stalk aroung looking at 2 computers which are exactly alike, just diffent brand, and ponder on which one to buy.
Some are so asorbed into this artificial layer of computing imagery created be M$, when you ask them, "excuse me, do you perfer Macs, or PC's?" they would say "PC's all the way!" Even though I offer them an option of ultra-powerful Macs like a PowerMac.

They would also have no sense in design, I've asked some people about the new iMac and they said, "I wouldn't really want one, the design is too strange, way to wierd for me, I would never get used to computer like that."

Sad isn't it?

movie maker, comic artist, famous illustrator, and more. They are dang cool Mac user.

But I hate to saying that Dell is sure cheaper that start with $699, I saw on the tv commerical ads. What a good deal. My parents just throw their money on Dell desktop. Also, at the campus where I go there, in the learning center room, they recenty replace from old Targent to cool black Dell desktop.

In print lab room, they also replace old PowerMac G3 (blue) to new G4 with every 17" LCD!!!! What a SWEET!!!! I have been like sit there and stare for quite long time. Oh my god, I am in love.

The problem is the cartoon universe laws of physics. Nitrozac has made the dude way cuter than he is in real life. He's cool in rl, but not really that cute. Of course he's also young and famous, which may have something to do with getting babes too.

Only 5 minutes left? I think this looks like a job for... um, some sort of superhero?

Or maybe Steven's dad will show up and ground him for borrowing his car without permission.

The problem is that Dell's high profile anoyingly cute TV spokesperson is going head to head with Apple's low wage retail "Geniuses". That's just NOT a fair fight. Now if apple were to bring in... Uh... Jeff Goldblume? Never mind. Apple is doomed.

No, Apple's counterpart to Steven is Steve Jobs. If Steve and Steven had a babe-off, it would be a more interesting battle.

They should have time warped in the young Steve Jobs who founded the company. Total babe-out.
