    1) PC at work. Mac at home. So mostly Mac.

    2) Integration between apps

    1) PC at work, Mac(s) at home. So since I spend most of my day working, the PC :(

    2) The joy that using OSX brings me! I get things done faster because of the way the system is designed.

    2. MobileMe/ .Mac services and integration between all my devices. (I'm one of the few that have never had issues with the services.)

    It makes me sad that most people only have access to PCs at work. I have to remind myself I'm lucky to work on a Mac at work and home. :)

    My MacBook at home and work and most other places. IPOD Touch where my MacBook won't go.

    Mac works...windows doesn't.

    yes I know right.

    Once I got into Mac's I couldnt stand even using a pc weather it be for work or anything else it just feels like such a downgrade of reliability and swiftness while using them.

    So in that case I bring my Macbook to work instead of using the PC, yeeee.

    Transfered all my documents and everything for work onto the PC, its like I actually enjoy being at work now lol

    Never had a PC at home so can't really say on that front. Mac/PC ratio at work is probably around 50/50.

    I am envious!

    I have so much stuff running, that I CRAVE expose and application hiding. I even found some software for Windows that does expose like functionality, but it ended up being a memory and CPU hog and wasn't worth it :(

    1. I just made the transition about a week ago today and it's been very smooth. I'm figuring things out pretty quick and I enjoy the Mac OSX a lot. It's simply just smoother. Windows vista gives me warnings when I don't want them but apple gives me the right ones.

    2. Integration with all other macs. Just how simply it works with my AppleTV and iPhone. Plus working with iCal and Address book just gets me organized. Though, I have Vista on my mac for one reason, I got it for free and I want to play a PC game otherwise, I'm fine with just using Mac. Love safari.

    1. Half Mac/Half PC at work (mostly because I have to), and Mac at home
    2. Application integration, graphics, ease of use, functionality, the list goes on

    Me too. We're also all Mac-Based at work. I can't imagine the horror of dealing with Windows in a work environment. My friends who are unfortunate enough to have to deal with PCs at work tell me insane stories all the time.

    I've been using Apple computers since the mid-80s (Apple //e, Apple //c, then Apple //gs until the early nineties), then in the 90s I started building my own PCs, but returned to Apple in the early 00s.

    Right now I (must) use a PC at the office, but we have Macs at home.

    Windows 98 at work.

    OSX and Vista at home. :cool:

    I actually spend more time on the PC because it's my desktop. Big screen and all.

    1) PC at work (now), Mac at home, and PC at my girlfriend's house. Although the latter will change when I get her a Macbook for Xmas.

    2) Favourite feature(set)? Being able to switch to Windows XP under VMWare Fusion using spaces on my wireless mighty mouse. Clicking the scroll ball, and boom, I'm in Windows.

    1. PC at work
    2. MacBook at wok on breaks and in between work
    3. Mac at home
    4. iPhone everywhere

    Yeh, mostly Mac. I'd use my MacBook at work instead of the POS computer they make me use, but IT is clueless when it comes to the Mac and won't give me access to the network. Nor do they have Mac versions of the software I need. (and Boot Camp would totally defeat the purpose.)
