Make, model & why?
I bought a MacBook. So... no.
What !! ..... buy a PC?
I had 20 years of that crap ..... NO THANKS.
i"ll stick with my Mac Pro, Mac Mini and MacBook if you don't mind.
I have (shortly will be had) Vista on my iMac, does that count?
No I haven't, why would I buy a Windows based PC?
Ain't no mounting high enough.
Ain't no docx low enough.
Ain't no vista wide enough
To keep me from Unix.
I'll accept that.
If and when nVidia releases the 8800 or better for the Mac Pro I will installl Vista
My dad needed to buy a computer for his nurse, and I persistently told him to get a Mac Mini, but after my night class, I see a giant HP box with Vista in the back of the car. It's funny because he was trying to do a screen sharing conference with someone, and he couldn't because Vista's security wouldn't let him, so he did it on my iMac. I didn't rub it in his face, though, even though I so easily could have.
You missed a great opportunity
Vista? I think not.
Vista is horrid from what I hear. A good friend of mine works at a Circuit City and the stories he tells me about Vista shoppers.....
Endless boot time.
And annoying warnings.
Why would anyone bother getting Vista when OS X is so much better?
Perhaps, but I've converted him already; he wants to replace his tablet with a MacBook and he owns a lot of Apple stock now, too. I think he just bought a PC just to make the IT guys happy even though they're robbing him hundreds of dollars just to get it networked every morning.
Then you are forgiven my son
Thank you, Father Jack. I was planning on going to confession tomorrow, but I think the most holy one (SJ) will let this go.
i've gone my whole life owning nothing but macintosh computers. i'm not about to change that now, especially not for vista. most recent mac: macbook.
I do sort of feel bad whenever I use a windows box because I can't remember how to use a lot of it. When I switched, I vowed to myself that I would stay current on both platforms to ensure no problems when using a PC and to maintain my status of "the computer whiz," but the Apple platform was clearly more exciting, and Mac OS X is a much more exciting, simpler, and efficient operating system than Windows.
The question is: what do you have to confess?
Well, to answer my own question...
Yes. An HP-dv9000t CTO (Configure to Order). It has an HDTV tuner that plugs in so I don't (yet) need to get a set-top box for my antique TV's.
Because a good many old things I have for PC's don't run on Macs, and I didn't want to trust the beta-Bootcamp with all of it. (Games, mostly, though a bunch of things I programmed up with Turbo C++ and have been keeping current over the years are another reason.)
As for the alleged problems quoted above? All systems, Mac & PC, have random errors: currently, I can't get Entourage on my powerBook to stop locking-up periodically for no reason except by rebooting, and Safari stops working after about an hour almost always (thank gosh for Firefox!); the Vista warnings (Unnecessary Asinine Communications) can be easily turned off; endless boot times is often due to the crapware that PC vendors load their systems with --erase it and the problem goes away; slow is true IF there isn't enough RAM or the processor is optimized for XP (say, running under 1.5ghz).
I have Vista Ultimate and so far (2.5 weeks), it's as stable as osX.
Just wait you are only halfway to a problem.
But in all seriousness - no Vista for me.
I have many pc's with Xp for the family and recently bought Vista 64bit.
shortly after purchased my first Mac (Macbook) and because this took so long to deliver my first 24@ Imac...
Vista hasnt been booted since
Lenovo ThinkPad t60, for my dad who has to have windows only stuff to get into a corporate intranet system.
Had to buy 9 laptops week before last - XP Pro
