Another day, another dead PC tower to add to the collection. I just finished university, and I've become adapted to using Macs (and it's very hard to go back). I live at home, and the family PC has died, adding another PC tower (about 4 in as many years) too the PC graveyard. Now my mum has decided she would like to upgrade to a IMac considering how long her Macbook has lasted despite the damage and torture it has been through (4 years, 2 cups of tea and she still has a macbook that works better than my Dad's laptop after 2 months out of the box). The thing is we aren't rich (especially me), and the money that my mother wants to put into a imac is the holiday fund for next year. I can understand the hesitation, but trying to convince my dad, an avid PC user, that buying a £600-£1000 Imac is cheaper than buying a PC every 2 years or so. He's never really had experience with a Mac. So what I'm asking is a list of reasons to try and convince him to put them money down, other than it being useful for me (as a producer) and my mother (as a artist) and try to make him see that I'm not just doing it because "I want a Mac".
