I was just thinking about when I got my first mac and wondered what reason other people had for getting their first macs. I got mine 7 years ago. I'm on my second mac now, and Will be purchasing my 3rd this summer when the new towers are released. I got mine because I wanted to do video, animation, and graphics work. Before that my family had had an Apple IIGS and a pentium. I didnt think macs were good but after some reasearch my grandfather found out that for graphics and video mac was the way to go. So I got the mac and fell in love. This led to one of my best friends purchasing a mac himself. He's on his 2nd too. Well, why all of you get macs for the first time? Also, if you don't have one and are going to get one, why is it that you'll be getting one?
