    Hey everyone,

    Today, I have a lot (okay, quite a few) confessions to make.
    • I used to hate Razer. I used to think it was overrated, never understanding why it had so many names for so many different products, until I got my first Razer DeathAdder Chroma.
    • I only own 3 Razer products. I only have a Razer DeathAdder Chroma, a Gothalius Control Mousepad and an upcoming BlackWidow T.E. Chroma, while I see other people having their whole desktop full of green snakes.
    • I have a DeathAdder Chroma but I only like it when its green.
    And finally......
    • I am using a MacBook Air. I use it for everything - Internet, YouTube, heck even Gaming. I even used a Magic Mouse to play CS:GO! I wanted a Windows Computer but I've been using this MacBook Air since my Dad gave it to me a number of years ago. I'm thinking of building a Windows PC soon when I have more money & time.
    Should I be ashamed of all these? If so, please do enlighten me on what I should do in the future. :oops::oops::oops:

    The only thing you should be ashamed of is thinking of starting to use Windows. Even though support for macOS is not great yet, it is still a more reliable and efficient OS.

    @RiccoLJY - Everyone has to start somewhere! Never be embarrassed of your stuff, you started, eventually you'll find the time/money to invest more into your setup. All that counts is that you're happy with what you have for the time being and that the items you do have serve you well. :)

    @BaccaBoss2 - The idea that either MacOS or Windows is a vastly superior anything is just ridiculous. They both have their pros and cons, they both have their strong suits and what they do better or less than what's desirable. Different strokes for different folks, ya know? Toss in Linux in there, and well, then the other start to look quite lackluster in many ways at the same time, according to many users. So, again, too many opinions to make generalized blanket statements.

    @kajira Geez, thanks so much haha. Well, I guess I'm going to have to start saving up to get my setup.

    I only own 1 razer product atm so that isnt something to be ashamed off. As long as you want to play games you are welcomed on this forum. Being a razer fan is just a plus, and getting their gear just makes it easier to game and more fun.

    Reliable only because they lock down any features/settings that could make it unreliable thusly making it neigh impossible for the user/owner to make significant changes or modifications to the OS (Its a dumbed-down, simple, locked down OS)

    Efficient, complete farce. As previously stated each one has its pro's and con's, it depends entirely on what you are doing. A majority of computer-based-applications are going to run more efficiently on a windows than mac, because that's what they were designed on.

    I have a full Chroma Suite and primarily use Green and Blue since that is what I like the most. I use a MBP for most of my daily usage and have a desktop that I built for gaming.

    Nothing out of the ordinary and anything to be ashamed of.

    No need to be ashamed RiccoLJY! All of us here know your true intentions are to save up for a Razer Blade so that you can finally put your MacBook to good gaming use:

    Gaming on mac is just a no go, gaming on a laptop even feels weird. And not liking razer so what just be yourself. Do what you like as long as you know both sides :)

    @OV3R_K1LL Haha well I guess I shouldn't feel bad about just owning 2 (at the moment). And it's so true - after getting their products, it's so much easier to play FPS games.

    @Overtask Well, I guess the "Whatever makes you happy" thing? Haha :smile_:

    @Raijin I was thinking of perhaps building a PC (with the Razer H440 Case) but, yeah! I could definitely use a new "mousepad"! Hahahah!

    @Rodeleeuw Well, time to start saving for a PC!

    @Topino I suppose that's true. Well, I need to get Windows ASAP Hahaha:smile_:

    @Remamian Well, I've got to change my computer ASAP so that I can get a new mousepad. Or maybe place my mousepad above my MacBook hahaha.

    You apparently have never actually used a Mac and made it your own. They are extremely customizable, and you can do just about anything you want on them. Also, when I talk about efficiency, I am talking about workflow efficiency and RAM management and utilization, as macOS was designed specifically for these, then optimized for everything else. Also, macOS also can run dual operating systems, which Windows has no ability to do, so you can set macOS as your main, then have a Windows partition for when you have to play a game that does not support macOS.

    If that is the case, then why do I have a library of nearly 20 games, and I that is just a small sample, that support the obviously superior macOS? Oh, yeah, its because you are dead-in-the-water wrong and too obstinate to see it any other way besides your opinion, which you just proved have the ability to be wrong.
