I'm thinking of hanging out my shingle later this year and starting my own law practice. At first, it would be just be me and a secretary (if that). I'd like to be a "mac office," but most of the law office management software out there is pc only. Not to mention most law practices use wordperfect, which is pc only. (I presume Word on the mac can open wpd files, though). The other consideration is the higher up-front costs of a mac. In any business, especially at first, you want to keep costs as low as possible. The big plus for using macs, to me, would be the "resistance" to malware. At the office where I work now, our part-time IT person is constantly reacting to some spyware or virus that somebody has received and installed on the network. At least for now, that wouldn't happen with a mac. So, to get to my question, Would you, in a pc-dominated business world, start a new business that uses macs or concede to the domination?
