After years of a love-hate relationship with Apple products and operating systems since well before System 7, I've finally made the switch from the bleak PC world to the beauty of Apple. This isn't just any switch; I'm not merely using both platforms in conjunction. It's a complete computing lifestyle switch, devoid of PCs (at least any that I own), complete with Apple products that work harmoniously, like my "new" 2nd generation 10gb iPod. This Saturday, I'm trading my Pentium4 3.0GHz (w/ Hyperthreading) laptop for a Dual 2.0ghz G5 tower. I was first exposed to the wonders of OS X and G5 finesse at my college newspaper, where last year, we purchased two new 1.8GHz dualies to replace some old G4s in production and graphics work. They were incredible, both in aesthetic style and productivity! I kicked myself for buying this PC laptop back in January '05, but I needed something quick and something portable. But not anymore, I'm now free to make the choices I want and that choice has been made.
