I've been trying to convert my mom to mac for ages and nothing has helped. Recently she has been deciding between some HP laptop with specs equivalent to a low end MBP and a macbook which cost about the same. I took her to an apple store and she went to a PC store. I tried all my mac pro's PC cons trick but still she bought the PC. Her reasons were: PC was cheaper based on specs Mac was slow @ booting office due to Rosetta Parallels ran slowly She still has some PC apps she needs for work Her work will not support her AT ALL if she has a mac, in terms of tech support for PC apps. And in the end she says it was her own choice and not mine. Whenever I try to speak to her further she shouts at me and gets all angry. I am just trying to show her simple computing because she is VERY computer illiterate. I've even set her up on the spare iMac @ home to show her the ease of OS X. But to no avail. She still has a 7 day 100% money back guarantee on the computer so it's not too late. Does anyone know if I can pull a final trick out of my sleeve?
