I go to a college where everyone is given MacBook Air's for their "work".
Everyone sucks Apple's dick because they don't know any better. They are unintelligent, and don't know anything about tech - yet they bluntly make these false statements. But everyone agrees that Apple is king, because everyone else is in the same boat.
It drives me insane and i'm sick to death of it. But think of it this way: Would you rather them ruining PC's? If they were all using PC's, they would say way worse shit, and it would strike closer to the heart. And I'm probably going to be raided by the FBI for saying this, but it would "make me want to walk into the school and shoot the living shit out of everyone".
And with that said, I guess the best way to solve this problem, is to keep them interested in Mac, ignore their lip service, and come home, embrace the PC, and enjoy it with other wise people.
I like to think of it this way, On Earth, Apple controls the world. Everything is painted white, and people are forced to support Apple, or be given a hard time by Apple's police. Everyone is living a sad, shallow life with no freedom of choice. War rages between the Allies (PlayStation) and the Axis (Xbox), leaving destruction in its path. But ever so slowly, is Apple taking over the entirety of the Earth.
But somewhere not far from Earth, there is a planet, greater in size to Earth. Holding tropical rain forests, deserts, endless oceans, vast landscapes and a home to the most knowledgeable people in the galaxy. PC. Enjoying their troubleless lives, exploring the planet, inventing ground-breaking technology and inspiring each other in their wisdom. With freedom of choice, and the knowledge to make a wise decision. The people living on the planet are aware, and if not informed by their piers of the war that rages on Earth.
As Apple devours Earth, PC lives it's own life away from the problem all together.
Long story short, PC users are smart enough to just stay out of it, and enjoy what they have.
Don't worry about these people, or Apple. I know the crap that they say is annoying, but stay out of it, and you'll be fine.
