Hello all! I am a PC user, but I recently placed an order for an MBP, which will hopefully be delivered by Tuesday. So I have been hanging out with a couple of my friends who use apple computers, and whenever I have to refer to an apple machine, I always say "Macintosh" instead of "Mac" (call me oldfashioned). For example: "I just ordered a macintosh machine". My friends have been telling me that "Macintosh" no longer exists, it has been replaced with "Mac". Using "Macintosh" is totally wrong- I should always use "Mac". I am sorry for bringing up this superfluous post, but I just want to get a quick clarification on if "Macintosh" has been erased from the books, and replaced by "Mac". I have a feeling that my friends are misinformed.
