    She recently got a dell laptop after a long time using Macs.
    A real casual computer user.


    She is using it (17 year old senior in highschool) and she randomly says, "I really dont like windows."
    I said, "Why? Slow? Unstable?"
    She says, "No, its just not awesome."

    ...And she got back to myspace.



    Kinda made my day.

    four or five....

    "Windows, its just not awesome."

    ...is a great tag. I also like the "Microsoft Vista, at least they circled the problem this time."

    Thats what I said.

    Interesting, the 12" powerbook was what my sister bought too. Said it was just the right size... its way to small.

    What model did she get? Any good? (you know, for a wintel)

    My exact thoughts. MacBooks are so much more "awesomer" lookin too. Your sister's logic befuddles me.

    Being a longtime 'mac user', and a casual one at that, she wouldn't have even noticed the awesome OS. It is so easy to use you don't have to think about it.

    When switching to the dell she had a point of reference and became aware of the difference...?!

    She's a reverse-switcher? She deserves her fate. I feel no pity for her. May he burn in Dell for the rest of eternity.

    Because she needed a 12" laptop.

    I dont know. When I told her to get a MacBook, she was like "YTE(&fufh" I want this one.


    And she bought it and doesnt really like it.
    It's an XPS something.
