    In the past three years, I've seen a number of personal acquaintances and extended family members switch to mac. In that time, I've seen no one switch away from Mac. Assuming I don't live in the only designated switch zone, it feels like the Mac momentum is swinging big time:

    -Accountant:Bought a Macbook Pro, like it so much he bought his wife a Macbook.
    -Sister-in-law: iMac, then iphone, then iphone for my brother (who never ceases to bitch about the lack of MMS picture capability...)
    Sister: Imac
    Parents: Mac Mini
    Other Sister: Imac
    Brother-in-law: Macbook Pro
    Student: Macbook
    School: Cart with 20 macbooks, prior to this, school was hardcore PC.

    These are all purchases that would have been PC in the past. The times they are a changing.

    I talked my friend into switching, and I had two teachers that used Macs.

    None. The last time I went to an apple store with friends they thought it was a dell store. No joke.

    Seriously? They weren't clued in by the gigantic Apple on the front of the store and the little Apples on just about everything in the store :confused:

    I didn't understand it either.

    In their defense they had a were too busy checking out the Guy behind the Genius Bar to care about what store they were in.
