The eternal (if eternal means since 1984) question that we may never really come to a solid agreement on: is MAC or PC better? Well here’s a helpful tool that, if adopted, will become invaluable in your own life: can’t get the answer you want, then change the question! So the new pressing issue here is: are you a MAC or are you a PC?
Let’s relate this problem in fashion terms, since we are all Chictopians here. Run through this relatively simple checklist to determine which platform you should (or probably already) have in your life:
1. Are you a classic pump or tribal heel?
The tribal heeled woman is so MAC that it hurts She is always current, but somehow retains her own sense of identity. Which rings true with the stylish MACs that are notoriously hack-resistant (unlike their stuffy cousins).
If you answered pump, you just may be a PC. You probably work in the corporate world or at least are vaguely connected to it. And let’s face it, PC is the more widely-accepted of the two platforms. So more than likely, you go with the universally appropriate platform. Just like the sexy pump, you’re nearly everyone’s flavor. But ladies, let’s show them PC’s can be fun and make sure to get your pump with a little red sole.
2. Speaking of fun: Do you own more graphic tees or structured coats?
The girl with the most graphic tees, games. Or she at least enjoys them. Or at the very least she loves to have fun, and games are fun. So there’s the connection! Any true gamer will tell you, PC is the way to go. When it comes to graphics and performance, you can’t outdo them. So now your shirt doesn’t have to be the only thing that’s a barrel of fun!
The structured coat person is probably more into design. Or they can appreciate it, at the very least. MAC is the standard in the design industry. They have some incredible tools, and a simple interface so you can focus on your work. Like coat, like software…
3.Are you a Wang girl or a Forever 21 fan?
You know how some people say owners look like their dogs? There may be a similar truth in the case of the Wang. More than likely, you are into the clean, simple, design which is evident in both your clothing and your computer. You enjoy the minimal aesthetic. The all-in-one iMAC is your dream machine. In all honesty, you may not even use the computer for much more than a beautiful centerpiece.
The Forever 21 girl is considerably more practical. She knows she can get a top that will serve it’s primary purpose of guarding her from indecent exposure, and the bonus it that it is fairly fashionable. Her computer reflects this no-nonsense aspect of her personality. But mostly likely, she just likes that it’s so wallet friendly. And yes, she still drools a little bit every time she sees that studded Wang bag (but who doesn’t).
You now probably have much more insight into your own fashion personality. And as a bonus have also been able to answer the question: are you a MAC or PC?
