I need people's opinions on what it is about the Mac community that they think makes it a special place to be, and why we won't ever go back to the nasty PC.

You can also include how this links to thoughts about the iPhone.

NB: Posting on this thread binds you into an agreement that I can use your words as quote in an article made for assessment.

Thanks :D

EDIT: P.S. I didn't know really where to put this, so mods, you can move it :p

My Thoughts

I feel that being a part of the Mac community means that you are surrounded with people that actually care about how their computer performs. They do now buy a computer simply based on the fact that over 90 percent of people in the world use it, they want a computer that is user friendly, works, and makes computing more interesting. I also feel that Apple pays more attention to their customers when it comes to what they release and what they do. The iPhone is also a great tool because it not only incorporates everything that anyone could need in to one device, it also makes it all easy to use. These are my thoughts.

For me, I wanted to change after using Windows all my life. The hassels of using Windows just got to the point where I wanted to try something else. I bought my first Apple computer in August. So far, its been great. I've had some minor transition problems, but nothing major.

I wanted the best damn phone on the planet.

Had RIM, had palm, had sony erriconson.

On the spec sheet you will find a phone with a better camera or GPS etc. But no phone that gives you the experience you get from the iphone and its software.

I switched to an Apple Mac in June, and it is a breath of fresh air. Everything works, and works flawlessly. Furthermore, I am not constantly waiting for the thing to boot up, or wasting hours of my time on a regular basis updating and running anti-spyware, anti-virus software and other security programmes. In addition, if I ever need technical help, this forum is superb and the font of all knowledge!

There is no way that I would consider going back.

Can't wait for the iPhone next week as well!

I've now completed my first year of iMac ownership and what a great year it has been. The iMac has performed brilliantly throughout and unlike my many Windows PC's beforehand has not required to be wiped clean and reinstalled every 3 or 4 months in order to run at acceptable speeds.

I plan on installing Leopard this week which will be great to make full use of the 64 bit C2D chipset.

My excitement levels are also on a high in anticipation of the UK iPhone launch next Friday.

Is it next week it's released?

like most people have said, after being on a Windows machine my whole life i wanted a system that worked the way i wanted it to work, not told me how to do things and then broke. the mac is in my opinion the embodiment of what a computer should really be about, you turn it on, do whatever you need to do and then turn it off, no faffling around with drivers or anti virus etc. It's a cliche, one that apple embraces, but it really does just work

Not got hold of a iPhone yet, a friend has one and also a iPod Touch, but i want my first experience of multi touch to be on my own device
