Default HP (the computer company) SUCKS (HP Fanboys....STAY AWAY)

After having 2 hp crapputers, and several HP printers, and some HP desktop screens, I can safely say..... HP SUCKS!!!!

The newest problem coming from the new Wi-Fi enabled printer that I am trying to hook up to my macbook. You see, I had THE EXACT SAME printer before, just the wired version.

Well, In trying to hook up this d**n thing, let me tell you what happend

1)the ink cartrage decided to take a piss on my finger, so now my finger has a nice *sarcasm* purple stain on it (YAY THATS WHAT I ALWAYS WANTED!!! Not.)

2) The setup wizard ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT find the printer. Hey, I can find it, so WHY cant you, dumb arse software?????

3) the thing keeps locking up my macbook (it has 4GB of RAM and a 7200 RPM harddrive, so i dont see why it keeps locking up. NONE of my other apps do that!)

4) the one freaking time that it decides it wants to connect, the dumb *** software decides to lock up AGAIN.

shoulda known I was gonna have this problem. I HATE HP. I have disconnected, unplugged, DONE EVERYTHING that I know to do.

All the other hp computers and printers that I have ever owned were crap aswell. they always locked up, crashed, ect.

My hp printer is crap, but its also about 7 years old, when the first combo ones came out. But I agree a bit, my moms desktop is crap.

Certain things they make are, my laptop is fine, but then again, mined not all original...

I've had good luck with the printers.
HP has absolutely gigantically huge software and that is part of or the entire problem.

I am on an HP now, its my first HP and I have had it for about 2 1/2 years now with nary an issue. Maybe I got lucky lol.

As for your problem, could the Mac be the problem? Driver issue perhaps?

I've had good luck with the cheap printers. Someone gave me an HP Officejet 6000 wireless printer once. It took like 4 ink cartridges, and they had like a 6 sheet life span. And the cartridges were like $20 each.

Needless to say I see why it was given to me for free.

Mine was top of the line when I got it, quadcore, 6gb of ram, 21inch HDMI monitor and 1.5 TB of space. Still does everything I need it to, but I am a console gamer so I don't really care about a graphics card.

With all exceptions to printers and laptops that is why I build my own Desktop.

nah dude the mac aint the problem. (not to sound like a fanboy)

driver is compatible with my OS
and as stated before, the mac has 4gigs of ram and a 7200 RPM harddrive. I know that it can handle the software.
