I am a Student and want to switch to a mac in september before I go to university. I will be studying geology and can't wait to get my 12" powerbook, it will allow me to do everything I want to do. I am fed up with all the shallow minded people I talk to about macs. I told a few people at my work about the switch and they just constantly make fun of me. They say that apples are useless. Someone try to convince me not to switch, he said that their isn't wordprocessor, presentation suite that would be compatible with wintel machines, I told him about Microsoft Office v.X. If he didn't know anything about this major program package for mac, he had no right to tell me not to switch. I am fed of people tring to sell their point of view without the knowledge that is needed to justify thier point of view. What do you guys think?
