Hello, Im James, 18 and from the UK.. Im new to the forum so Hi everyone I am also a feature writer and have wrote a little about the Mac's growing popularity at: http://macs.suite101.com/article.cfm/how_the_mac_is_in_all_markets Hope you enjoy it.. Anyway, I use my Mac for everything, including scientific computing, web serving, video and photo editing etc. I have a Mac Mini (PPC) and a new Intel MacBook Pro, which I must say is a fantastic machine. I also recently bought a Win Vista Acer laptop... and ohhh... so many problems plague it... the most pathetic thing is the sleep/waking up system, which is sooo unreliable. The MacBook Pro.. just close the lid and its asleep within 2 seconds... open the lid, it wakes up in 2 seconds. Mac's simply "just work"
