    After many nights Photo editing, Trouble free, I thought,
    How Many People really do love their mac??
    My wife can't understand how important my Mac is to Me,
    She thinks it's 'just a pc'
    She uses it, but i wish she didn't, In my world, every free minute i'm editing, surfing, listening to music,It's a bad case of mac love,
    my windows pc was a fleeting relationship compared.

    How do you feel about your mac's ?

    Are your mac's a big part of your life's compared to your old windows PC's

    I love my mac. My friends dont understand my obsession, but really, i cant help but talking about them with people. Like, its kinda weird, but I feel that my mac, in fact, anything i own from apple (ipods, iphone, computers, software) is just another thing to get happy about. Its like an obsession.

    Yep, totally. Someone suggested once that Apple puts crack cocaine into their products to keep people coming back for more, but I think it's pheremones. How else can you explain the love/lust people seem to feel for everything Apple?

    Definitely addicted. I "putter" on it every night. Don't really need to do anything constructive, just like to play with it. It's replaced my long time interest working on and driving MG sports cars (hence my forum tag). There's a guy at work and Mac stuff is all we ever talk about. I also find myself approaching total strangers who are using Mac laptops in public and congratulating them on their wisdom in buying a Mac. Some are a little surprised, but most are very happy to share their Mac love affair...

    I spend every waking moment on my MBP (minus those moments where I have to do something else). Those 'doze people just don't understand the love here...

    I love it, I love it a lot (maybe too much).

    My family picks on me because I am on it SO much. What can I say? It is the coolest technological piece of equipment I have ever laid my hands on. My MacBook and I are good friends.

    I love it because I can do things immensely fast compared to on a PC. It's also more natural feeling so it's pretty much second nature and is why I love my iMac. (With a second monitor. Never having a desktop again without multiple monitors)

    to be honest, i can use Windows much more efficiently than OSX, i find myself going back to work on a small video project thats already on my XP machine, and am very suprised at how much more responsive it seems than my mac, but really, the sexy apple hardware, the slick interface of OSX, constant spell check in whatever you're doing, and best of all two finger scrolling, cant beat it. I love my Mac

    :apple::apple:

    it goes everywhere with me, my XP notebook never did that :shhh: dont want to give my mbp a big head

    then theres this new wireless keyboard, so nice...and the mighty mouse, love that too...most of the time.

    Macs are great for a lot of things. My PB G3 opens the internet faster than my parents 3 year old PC. I love my Mac but sadly it has to go soon so I can get a MB to run Leopard.

    I went to Best Buy the other day; used a iMac for the first time. I instantly fell in love. I mean, OS X is just SO fluid. It's like everything makes sense! The machine was so beautiful. It was absolutely amazing. I wish I could have got one instantly on the spot. Hopefully for Christmas. :)

    Only trouble i had with my MBP is that when i got it, it was a little sub par in the build quality, but after a small about of "kind discussion" with apple, they sent me a new one, and it's perfect. Where as the pc i built was good at first, i have little problems here and there. I do have to say macs are by far the easiest to live with, but i find many things where my pc is handy. But i like the mac more i would have to say.
