I thought i would share my story about how i switched. I heard so much about the iPod and wanted it really badly, i found out a while after that i needed iTunes to use the iPod which was a no no as i was using windows 98. My computer was a huck of s***. I went down to an apple reseller where i saw all the mac computers. The minute i went on one i was instantly drawn. I did research on mac for a year, including on this site (great site btw). The time had come to buy a mac, all my friends said i was crazy for going to buy a mac (what annoy's me most is they no nothing about macs what so ever) i wanted a destop but my budget did not strech (i did not what the eMac as i required room on my desk for school work) so i got the iBook thinking it would be great to surf the net around the house and pack it up to free my desk. Apart from that i had no need for portabilty. Thats what i thought any way, i began tacking it to school which made preperation for assement a life saver. My friends are jelous but still come up with stuff to bag macs like "makes can't connect to anything". So i connected the mac to the sever and began surfing the net. Told them off good. Im the only one at my school who uses a mac, but ive made plenty of people think twice about buying one. Crap im need to stop talking, the fact is i love macs now, there easy and you spend more time being productive. Ive recently gotton into iLife and have no regrets looking back. btw i finally bought that iPod.
