Our Dell Dimension is about six years old and on its last legs (damn, this is slow), and after the bliss I've encountered with my Alu MacBook, I feel obliged to convince her to run from the horrid world of PCs now given the chance. The stability, reliability, and easiness is terrific, and would benefit her enormously. She was offered this: Not bad, eh? But a PC. We've been hit somewhat hard by the recession, and money's a bit tight. Nonetheless, I'm explaining to her how in the end, the total cost of ownership, is normally less for a Mac. That doesn't even factor in the productivity, gained time, and all the lost headaches and secure data. We could get this now, but it would be bogged down two years down the road, and we'd likely need to buy a new one then again. Like a refurbished Mac Mini (really, she needs not too much power, she browses the internet, word processes, and reads e-mails)? Or recommend me something else? Or should we accept the PC, and deal with it? She claims she doesn't care it's more reliable, because for what she's doing it doesn't matter. (I say, it's still a lot more productive, and easy to use. We spent 6 hours trying to set up a printer on this computer the other day, that worked as soon as plugged into my MacBook ) Help guys? Please try to help me convince her. Or really, should we just go with the PC? We are tight on money, and need a relatively affordable set up.
