I have a iphone 4 right now and have been an iPhone user since the original iPhone. I also went out and bought the first gen iPad. I use a custom home built windows 7 computer with Media Center and a tv tuner card as a gaming computer and server to my 3 Xbox's for live and recorded tv. The tv system has an espicially high WAF factor and i would be hard pressed to change it. About 4 months ago I purchased a Nokia Lumia 900 to try out first hand.

Lately I find myself using my apple iPhone and iPad for their hardware but I tend to use Microsoft's new Outlook and Sky Drive services instead of apples offerings. However, I do vastly prefer iTunes to the Zune software or Windows Media Player.

My question is, what am I missing by running this hybrid system? I cant help but feel that im missing out on some functionality by maintaing two seperate systems If I went all apple, what benefits would I see? Is there any benefits to running all Microsoft? Or do I have the best of both worlds?

Thank you for any insights that you might have.

Nobody can think of anything?

An all-apple system?

Well, they recently merged your texts and iMessages completely... I think. Somebody else will have to tell you if you can now text from your Mac.

An all-windows system?

I think Windows Phone has Office built in. Skydrive will be better on a WP. Some people like the "Modern"interface.
