Seems like a lot of people here switched from a Dell, I wonder what the percentage of them are compared to other switchers?

I switched from a Dell! :D

My iMac is wonderful. It has that tiny tilt problem everyone talks about (maybe 1/8 inch), and I'm constantly worried b/c it seems so fragile, but I think it's probably a pretty tough machine.

I think I like this game, is this played with the same rules as "What's on the bottom of MY shoe?"

Not me, I had a custom rig. Although, when I do buy a PC that I don't build, I buy from Falcon Northwest (www.falcon-nw.com).

My PowerBook G4 sees most of my computer time. My PC I use for gaming.

Ok so yeah, well My dad has always used mac's so I inherited em, but as of late my dad got stuck w/ a dell notebook, needless to say he was disgusted, sold the notebook then bought a GHz PB :D that's kinda like switching to a dell then back within a week.

i switched from a Dell Inspirion 8000 laptop. I got my original 500MHZ iBook, I loved that thing, and then they upgraded me to a 600MHZ iBook, and this summer I got my lovely G4 iMac. I used the Dell for two weeks on a road trip, it was too clunky and heavy and I remember being in Santa Fe at the time and I went to an art museum and I saw a bunch of iBooks and Powerbooks and i got jealous, that was a turning point on its own. It was a piece of crap, and i remember holding the iBook for the first time and feeling how light and thin it was, and how it compared in speed and power to that, what seemed like 22lb, 3" laptop...lol


My name is Rob, and I switched from that P.O.S. Dell Laptop.
