Excuse me while I gloat. Everyone I know who owns a PC always loves to give me flack about how Macs are the lesser of the two rivaling brands (note: they always start the argument. Self conscious much, PC-ers?). I’ve always maintained — and still do — that they’re just jealous of my sleek, sexy white laptop that’s so easy to carry around, never gets viruses, et cetera, et cetera. But now, I have another thing to hold over their heads: us Mac users got more style. Heck. Yeah.
According to a new study by Bundle, the fashion sense of PC users pales in comparison to that of Mac users. While PC peeps shop at stores like Columbia and Van Heusen, Apple-lovers are bumping elbows at Bloomingdale’s and Hermes. That’s a pretty big gap. I guess I’ll be honest here and say that I don’t shop at any of those stores (except Bloomingdale’s, but that’s usually only to pick out Christmas presents that I force others to buy for me), but that doesn’t mean I won’t use this argument anyway. I take whatever I can get.
The difference in preference could simply be attributed to the fact that Macs are typically more expensive than PCs and thus those who own Macs have more money to spend elsewhere. And that’s not to say that Mac users don’t look for a deal—in fact, they usually scour the sale sections of these more upscale shops, hoping to cut themselves a deal. But, you know, I just like to think it’s not a money thing, but rather an intrinsic sense of superior style. (via HuffingtonPost)
