Although some of you are life-long Macintosh users, I just thought it would be neat for people to tell their Macintosh stories here, whether they be a switch story, or the history of the machine they have owned... Personally, I started computing on an old Canon--yes Canon--laptop that my Dad gave me, which I eventually gave to one of my cousins. After that, I purchase a Sony Vaio laptop (P3 500mhz), which I really liked - had that one for about two years. After that I got a Vaio desktop, but I really started to feel bored with the OS and got tired of tweaking the thing (not, not crystal meth) to get it to do what I wanted. In 2003, I took a job as an editor with a publishing company, which was 50/50 Mac - PC. At first, I was overtaken by the beauty of the machines, how nicely the insides were put together etc. Then I started to play around with OS9, and before I knew it I bought a G4 tower, so I wouldn't have to drive to the computer lab up in Baltimore for school. At work, we undertook a big photo shoot, which compromised thousands of images, so I got an iMac G5 for this task. Out of all three machines I own, this one is my favorite. A little later, as I started doing a lot of photo work, I got an iBook as an expensive CF card reader. Three iPods and three computer later, I just switched my first friend last week... Where and how did you get involved with Apple?
