i dont go out of my way to tell people to get one as i simply do not care what they do with their money. i get macs because i like them pure and simple.

so with that i have no idea how many people i may or may not have influenced to get a mac. be cool if i did though without me trying lol

i didnt actually tell him to get one,he noticed that i dont get ANY freezes even when opening lots of software the same time..he have a cd2 new hp laptop aswell..and its going to the store every 2days..so he though he would give it a shot..and he's very happy with his mac now-so am i!- ...i beleive that every mac user effects on the jealous friends/relatives :rolleyes:

I don't actively advocate that people switch, but I have had exactly three people in my circle buy a Mac after seeing mine in action. I also think number four is pending. He is completely in love with the new iMac and has been "hanging out" at the Apple Store. :D

UPDATE: Number four is a done deal. He just bought a new 20" iMac. I also sold one to my brother last night, so put me down for five total.

As with the others, I don't try to "sell" the mac. I just use it. If they like it when they see me use it, they buy it. I can count about 10 people who have switched to macs after seeing mine in the last 4 years since I switched.

I influenced one (even though I don't even have a Mac, used one for couple years...).

I just told him my legendary encounter w/ the garbage pile named Vista and his mom decided they are probably going to switch lol...

Now my other friends think Macs do have better features and is more stable...

I got my mom to want an iMac, so my stepdad could buy it for her on her birthday. I also think I got this one lady who sat next to me on the plane back from Florida to get one. She said she wanted to replace her Windows 98 computer :eek: so I just showed her the cool stuff about it and she said she was probably gonna get one. I might have also inadvertently convinced some other people too.

3 people so far, including my mom who got the new iMac this weekend and loves it.

I just tell people, I don't know how to fix viruses or want to know how to get rid of a Trojan Horse, so I have a mac.

"My Mac makes me look smart!"

At least one, the guy who bought my 15" CD MBP. It was his first Mac. I do know that I have got many people interested in Macs, but don't know if they have or will buy Macs.

On an interesting note, to me anyway, in an office completely full of Windows PCs, the president of our company has a PB :D He likes how stable Macs are.

Just the one - kind of. I helped my neighbour make the switch but didn't encourage him. Just told him the pros and cons and left him to decide. I am now his tech support :(
